But the Post quoted Olga Sanchez Cordero, Mexico's interior minister-designate, as saying Mexico's new government had accepted the policy as a "short term solution" to the issue of Central American migration - which has been dramatized in recent weeks as thousands of USA -bound Central Americans have made their way north through Mexico in caravans.

Trump said on Twitter late Saturday that migrants at the border wouldn't be allowed into the USA until their claims were heard in court, a process is usually lengthy.
