Mexican President-elect Andrés Manuel López Obrador’s transition team and other Mexican officials indicated to the Trump administration that they at least temporarily support a U.S. plan to rework the border policy so that asylum seekers must wait in Mexico as U.S. courts review their claims, the Washington Post reports.
Why it matters: An agreement would break tradition with current asylum rules and provide a barrier in the path of Central American migrants attempting to receive asylum in the U.S.
Details: The plan, known as "Remain in Mexico" according to the Post, would potentially alter the current system, which Trump has labeled as "catch and release."
