MEXICO CITY Mexico has accepted 112 Central American migrants from the United States, and they include 25 minors in a policy reversal, the head of Mexicos immigration agency said Monday.
Late last month, the U.S. launched the so-called remain in Mexico program negotiated with Mexico to make some asylum applicants wait in Mexico during the months and even years that it can take to resolve such cases.
National Immigration Institute Commissioner Tonatiuh Guillen had said last month that Mexico wouldnt accept migrants younger than 18 while they await the resolution of their U.S. asylum claims. But Guillen said Monday that Mexico is accepting children who are accompanied by their parents, saying the numbers remain small.
Guillen said the 112 migrants sent back through Feb. 21 included 17 families from Honduras, El Salvador and Guatemala. The migrants return to Mexico through the El Chaparral crossing in Tijuana.
So far, there has been capacity to handle the returnees in Tijuanas shelters, but Guillen said that theres a limit.

Thinking the same thing.
But it did have to be put in reverse first after obummer’s 8 years.
It’s been utterly RIDICULOUS, us allowing Mexico to act as some sort of ‘Gateway to America’ all these years!
How much more can I complain about this? I started in 2001!
But, ‘my betters’ never HAVE listened to me until PDJT came along.
It sure did, and surprised that Mexico is cooperating at all.
Kudos to Prez Trump for moving in the right direction. Faster would be better, but that is not any government’s strong suit. Thanks for posting some good news.
MAGA Bump! :^)
Close the gate. Dont let them in. Show me an American that is Oh-So offended about them staying in Mexico and they can “be explelled” as well and thats what you call a twofer.
You damn right there are limits and We the People in the US are full up. Keep your trash in your country.
It certainly sounds like Mexico is cooperating. Maybe they they dont like having thousands of migrants living in Mexican border towns wanting food and shelter.
Lets wrap this Freepathon up, Folks!
Good! Kick-out all illegal alien invaders...never to return.
We should be expelling ALL illegal aliens, not just the latest arrivals.
Excellent, because this foils the NGO’s strategy of force-busing illegals all over the US, particularly into Republican congression districts. If they are in Me-hi-co, they can’t board a Greyhound to Kansas.
The primary purpose of the GOP since 1989 was to prevent the citizens from stopping the illegal alien inundation.
30,000,000 to go.
