The executive director of the Canadian Council for Refugees, Janet Dench, states that those in migration holding centers get a sufficient amount of food and water but have the amenities are limited. They do not have internet access and restricted phone calls access. Due to this, it can be rather tough for them to get in touch with others for getting the necessary legal documents.

The most likely scenario is that U.S. officials would stay adamant on imposing tariffs to force Mexico into signing the safe third party treaty. If that happens, Mexico will have to opt for a ‘regional strategy’ where they need to convince countries such as Panama, Brazil, Guatemala, Honduras and a few other Latin American nations to follow similar agreements – all these countries will have to accept refugees who enter their borders first.
