The US will receive more migrants stranded in Mexico; clap ‘filter’

Following meetings this week in Mexico between a US delegation and Mexican President Andrés Manuel López Obrador, both governments agreed that the United States will accept asylum applications from Cubans, Haitians, Nicaraguans and Venezuelans who are already in Mexico.

He added that in this way, people are prevented from “traveling the painful path of irregular migration and falling for the tricks of transnational criminal organizations that profit from their need and illusions.”
