US finds ally in Mexico as asylum policy marks first year
By ELLIOT SPAGAT
TIJUANA, Mexico (AP) - It's been a year since the Trump administration adopted a policy to make asylum-seekers wait in Mexico for hearings in U.S. immigration court. The practice has gone a long way toward making Mexico a key ally in President Donald Trump's response to a surge of migrant families, most of them from Central America. Many of the roughly 60,000 asylum-seekers have given up and gone back to the home countries they fled. Others became entrenched in Mexican life. Some live in fear of being robbed, assaulted, raped or killed.
