Mexico Tariffs Off as Deal is Reached

 In Foreign, Politics

Can you say winning? President Trump announced on Friday that a deal was reached to put off the Mexico Tariffs. The deal includes “unprecedented” actions and large numbers of Mexican troops at the border of Guatemala to stop the flow of illegals.

All the hand-wringing by Dems and everyone else over the Mexico tariffs affected the stock market and sent Democrats, and even some Republicans into a tither.

We’ve been seeing signs the last few days that Mexico has started to step up their game on migrant caravans, stopping a group of 1,000 people at their southern border. They sent buses and about 200 troops to break apart the caravan. They are to also take steps to stop human trafficking and drug smuggling across the border.

The agreement states in part:

Mexico will take unprecedented steps to increase enforcement to curb irregular migration, to include the deployment of its National Guard throughout Mexico, giving priority to its southern border. Mexico is also taking decisive action to dismantle human smuggling and trafficking organizations as well as their illicit financial and transportation networks. Additionally, the United States and Mexico commit to strengthen bilateral cooperation, including information sharing and coordinated actions to better protect and secure our common border.

Migrant Protection Protocols

The United States will immediately expand the implementation of the existing Migrant Protection Protocols across its entire Southern Border. This means that those crossing the U.S. Southern Border to seek asylum will be rapidly returned to Mexico where they may await the adjudication of their asylum claims.

In response, Mexico will authorize the entrance of all of those individuals for humanitarian reasons, in compliance with its international obligations, while they await the adjudication of their asylum claims. Mexico will also offer jobs, healthcare and education according to its principles.

The United States commits to work to accelerate the adjudication of asylum claims and to conclude removal proceedings as expeditiously as possible.

The US and Mexico jointly agreed that if these actions don’t produce the desired effect within 90 days, they will come back to do more negotiations. For now, this puts to rest the idea of 5% Mexico tariffs. They blinked.
