Mexico says migration reduction measures to be reviewed after 45 days

Mexico says migration reduction measures to be reviewed after 45 days

"Something that the Mexican ambassador said to me is, 'Well, we just can't have Mexico, we just can't have this many migrants in our country.' I said, 'Think about what it's like for our country'".

The tweets came amid questions about just how much of the deal - announced with great fanfare Friday - was really new.

First things first: President Donald Trump's decision to back away from his threats to impose tariffs on goods imported from Mexico is a unambiguous victory for the American economy, for the hundreds of thousands of people whose jobs are part of that global supply chain, and for continued good relations between two deeply interconnected countries.

Mexico had already promised to take numerous actions agreed to in Friday's immigration deal with the U.S. - months before President Donald Trump's tariff threat, officials from both countries who are familiar with the negotiations told the New York Times in a story published Saturday. Mexico, however, had already meant to deploy the National Guard to the southern border and had made that clear to USA officials.

Trump's assumption that illegal immigration from Mexico is a significant issue, which like most of his ideas was forged in the 1980s, is flatly false.

Mexico has agreed, it said, to "unprecedented steps to increase enforcement to curb irregular migration", including the deployment of the Mexican National Guard throughout the country, especially on its southern border with Guatemala.

One senior government official insisted to the Times that the Mexican government agreed to move to deter migrants faster and more aggressively than they ever had before this week's talks.

Officials agreed to expand the "Remain in Mexico" program, in which migrants seeking asylum in the United States wait in Mexico while their claims are adjudicated.

"The president has completely overblown what he reports to have achieved".

US President Donald Trump has repeated his threat of tariffs against Mexico, saying that the US has already signed a portion of the planned immigration and security pact with the country and warned that Washington would follow through with its threat if the deal was not ratified by Mexican lawmakers. Ten days ago, the president vowed to slap a 5% tariff on all imports from Mexico unless it took measures to crack down on immigration.

"And as with so many other occasions, our stories stand up over time and the president's denials of them do not". So Trump tried to save face by claiming that Mexico had caved into his tariff threats, so now he doesn't have to do tariffs.

Mexico's ambassador in Washington, meanwhile, said her country was committed to cooperating with the US and that discussions would continue over the coming 90 days. The news comes a week into the neighbors' row over tariffs and border security. The threat led to negotiations. "But we don't have a specific agreement on agricultural products".

"Would asylum seekers actually be safe in these countries?" says Pierce.

Trump ran in 2016 pledging to crack down on illegal immigration, but instead has watched as the number of border crossings has spiked to its highest level in over a decade - with U.S. Border Patrol apprehending more than 132,000 people in May, including a record 84,542 adults and children traveling together.
