MEXICO CITY (Reuters) – The Mexican government said on Monday it would come up with a plan to deal with migrants stuck in the country as a result of outgoing U.S. President Donald Trump’s policies, while stressing that Mexico is not to blame for the flows of people.
The interior ministry said it and the foreign ministry would work out how to deal with migrants left inside the country by Trump’s so-called Remain in Mexico policy after U.S. President-elect Joe Biden pledged to dismantle the program.
Mexico would work with the governments of the United States, Guatemala, Honduras and El Salvador to address the migration challenge, Interior Minister Olga Sanchez told a meeting of ambassadors, according to comments shared by the government.
