JUST IN: US to Begin Returning Asylum Seekers to Mexico on Friday: Reuters
The United States will begin returning migrants seeking asylum in the US to Tijuana, Mexico on Friday according to an exclusive report by Reuters.
Reuters reported that a spokesman for Mexico’s President did not specify the nationalities of the asylum seekers to be returned to Mexico, however Trump’s policy was crafted to curb the Central American caravans that traveled to the US to get asylum and leech off American taxpayers.
Thousands of Central American migrants are camped out in Tijuana, Mexico, the town that borders San Diego, California.
Tijuana officials have expressed their anger and frustration over the financial strain these migrants are putting on the local community.
A large percentage of the Central American migrants have diseases such as AIDS, tuberculosis and hepatitis.
Even worse, there are Middle Easterners, Bangladeshi’s and dangerous MS-13 gang members embedded in the caravans seeking asylum.
There is a huge humanitarian crisis at the border and Obama’s dangerous ‘catch and release’ policy became a magnet for asylum seekers.
According to Reuters, a backlog of more than 800,000 cases is pending in the immigration courts.
