The United States government and the Mexican government may not be on the same page regarding migrants and immigration, according to Fox News reports.
An Overview of the Current Immigration Dispute
On Saturday, President Trump’s administration announced that they reached a deal with the Mexican government. The alleged deal supposedly stated that migrants seeking asylum in America will temporarily abide in Mexico until the United States can legally process their requests.
However, the Mexican government tells a rather different story. According to Olga Sanchez, Mexico’s soon-to-be Interior Minister, there is no deal whatsoever between the United States and Mexico.
