"Because of the absence, the apathy and the abandonment of the federal government, we are having to turn to global institutions like the U.N.", Figueroa said.

The administration of Mexico's current president, Enrique Pena Nieto, rejected a similar Trump administration proposal previous year.

The closures come as around 500 migrants overwhelmed federal and local Mexican police blockades and rushed toward the United States border near Tijuana, Mexico.

White House spokesperson Hogan Gidley said: "President Trump has developed a strong relationship with the incoming (Lopez) Obrador Administration, and we look forward to working with them on a wide range of issues".

As hundreds of Central American migrants massed at the border intending to apply for asylum in the United States, all border traffic was halted Sunday at the busy crossing between San Diego and Tijuana, Mexico, the U.S. Customs and Border Protection agency said.

Sanchez, who said the situation of migrant caravans was "very delicate", did not explicitly rule out that Mexico could keep caravan migrants on its soil while their USA asylum claims are processed.

But the Post quoted Olga Sanchez Cordero, Mexico's interior minister-designate, as saying Mexico's new government had accepted the policy as a "short term solution" to the issue of Central American migration - which has been dramatized in recent weeks as thousands of USA -bound Central Americans have made their way north through Mexico in caravans. The Trump administration has spent weeks lambasting the caravan, which it said was filled with criminals, gang members and even - it insinuated at one point without any proof - terrorists.

"Migrants at the Southern Border will not be allowed into the United States until their claims are individually approved in court", Trump wrote.

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. "The new government will begin its mandate on December 1".

The New York Times ran an AP headline on Sunday afternoon that reads "Migrants March Toward US Border in Show of Force", and which refers to the story, first reported by Fox News, that some members of the caravan on Sunday marched upon a USA point of entry in California in an attempt to cross and as a demonstration/protest.

She said Trump had chosen "to weaponize" and "politicize" the situation, but "has an opportunity here, especially with a new Congress coming in, to get this done". We only will allow those who come into our Country legally.

"They will also give us dates, on what terms they will receive the (asylum) requests and in the case that they are not beneficiaries of this status, they will have to return here", Vences said.

US President Donald Trump has raised alarms about the caravan of migrants as it approached the United States, and has deployed military forces to the border to support the Border Patrol.
