President Trump’s plan for the caravan would work well for America

President Trump is putting the economic screws to Mexico to control the flow of Central American migrants at the southern border. Unlike his predecessors, Trump is driving a hard bargain.
Exports are Mexico’s economic lifeblood, and a staggering 81 percent of them end up in the US. That’s why Trump’s threat to close the border — even for a short time — gets results.
Shutting the border shuts down Mexico.
No wonder Mexico’s incoming president, Andrés Manuel López Obrador, seems open to a “Remain in Mexico” deal that will make his country the waiting room for migrants applying for asylum in the US. In another sign of cooperation with Trump, Mexican immigration officials rapidly deported 98 migrants who tried forcing their way into the US on Sunday.
Under “Remain in Mexico,” asylum seekers would be held south of the border. Because they won’t step foot on American soil, they won’t have a “right” to public schooling, emergency health care and other costly American guarantees — good news for taxpayers.
Making Mexico the waiting room is one part of Trump’s plan. Another is to bar migrants who sneak across the border from applying for asylum. Trump is trying to solve the so-called catch-and-release problem.
