The Mexican government offers a plan to keep Central American migrants in Mexico, as caravan pushes toward U.S.
President Enrique Pena Nieto offered migrants temporary identification papers, jobs and education for their children if they register for asylum.
This comes as thousands of migrants are making their way to the U.S. seeking a better life.
“In Mexico, you will be able to get medical attention and even send your kids to school,” said Pena Nieto. You will also get a temporary official ID for the paperwork you’ll need to do while you regularize your migration situation. And something very important, once incorporated into the plan, you will be able to access the temporary work program.”
President Trump has threatened to cut aid to Central American countries if nothing is done to stop the caravan from reaching the U.S.
