"For now, we have agreed to this policy of Remain in Mexico", said Olga Sanchez Cordero, Mexico's incoming interior minister, who takes office on December 1 when Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador is sworn in.

But Mr Ebrard, who will become foreign minister in December after Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador's administration takes power, said the United States had yet to even send "a specific proposal" on how to deal with the issue.

Mexico's president-elect had agreed to a Trump-administration plan that would make Central American asylum-seekers stay on the Mexican side of the border while waiting to be legally admitted to the USA, the president had said Saturday.

Trump did turn to Twitter on Saturday evening to discuss the migrant matter, vowing that those at the U.S. -Mexico border wouldn't be permitted into America "until their claims are individually approved in court".

"Would be very SMART if Mexico would stop the Caravans long before they get to our Southern Border, or if originating countries would not let them form (it is a way they get certain people out of their country and dump in U.S. No longer)", Trump wrote.

Mr Trump also said the U.S. would consider closing the southern border if the administration deemed it necessary, and has said he would use lethal force on the migrants.

The domestic policy adviser told Reuters. "No "Releasing" into the U.S", he tweeted.

It said the deal would break with long-standing asylum rules and mount a new obstacle for Central American migrants attempting to seek refuge in the United States.

Ms Robledo said the incoming government wanted to find jobs for Central American migrants in sectors that are short-staffed, such as maquila assembly plants.

The White House did not immediately respond to questions about what the president was referring to.

Stephanie Leutert, director of the Mexico Security Initiative at the University of Texas at Austin, described the Remain in Mexico plan as a strategy to take away the ability of migrants to live and work in the USA while cases are processed.

"The hope is that asylum seekers will not want to live in (Mexico) for months/years and won't come", Leutert said via Twitter.

USA officials will be able to process at least twice as many asylum claims under the new system because they would not be limited by detention space at U.S. ports of entry, the Post report said.
