"No "Releasing" into the U.S.", Trump wrote. Then the asylum seeker would be escorted to a federal courthouse by USA officers, but would potentially have to return to Mexico again if the judge did not reach an immediate determination on the claim.

Julieta Vences, a congresswoman with Lopez Obrador's Morena party who is also president of Mexico's congressional migrant affairs commission, told the AP that incoming Foreign Minister Marcelo Ebrard has been discussing with USA officials how to handle a deluge of asylum claims at the border.

The Washington Post reported Saturday that the administration of U.S. President Donald Trump has won support from the Mexican president-elect's team for a plan dubbed "Remain in Mexico".

"We only will allow those who come into our Country legally. No "Releasing" into the U.S", he tweeted.

"What we're aiming for is that people leaving their countries due to security issues or violence can find a place to stay in Mexico if that is their decision", Robledo said.

But according to The Associated Press, the new Mexican leadership was telling a somewhat different story.

Reached for comment by Reuters, the incoming deputy interior minister, Zoe Robledo, said details of the "Remain in Mexico" scheme were still being worked out.

Andrés Manuel López Obrador, Mexico's president-elect, plans to implement a policy known as "Remain in Mexico" after taking office next month, his top domestic policy official told The Washington Post. "Mexico has open arms and everything, but imagine, one caravan after another after another, that would also be a problem for us".

Sanchez did not explain in the statement why The Washington Post had quoted her as saying there had been agreement.

The statement shared with AP said the future government's principal concern related to the migrants is their well-being while in Mexico.

The White House has not confirmed nor denied this report.

U.S. officials want to roll out the program at the San Diego border crossing to deal with the caravans that have become a source of frustration for Trump, but they envision it could be expanded to another five to seven crossings along the U.S. -Mexico border. He has expressed determination to stop the caravan from reaching the US, deploying troops to the border and warning of consequences should countries assist the caravan in its journey.
