Trump claims victory on Mexican migration

11 June, 2019, 04:22 | Author: Regina Silva
  • Democrats have slammed President Donald Trump's tactic of using tariff threats to press Mexico to curb the northward flow of migrants before they reach border points like this one in California

According to the Bloomberg report, the White House declined to comment or offer proof to back up Trump's tweet.

On Saturday, Trump said that Mexico had agreed to "immediately begin" buying "large quantities" of agricultural goods from US farmers.

The Mexican president said despite their crackdown on immigration, Mexico would continue to respect the human rights of illegal immigrants.

He could have been referring to discussion about Mexico becoming a "safe third country", which would make it harder for asylum-seekers who pass through the country to claim refuge in the U.S. The idea, which Mexico has long opposed, was discussed during negotiations.

Mexico's ambassador in Washington nonetheless said his country is committed to working with the USA and that discussions will continue. The document has been signed but not yet ratified by the three North American nations.

"We have an agreement on something they will announce very soon", he said. To curtail illegal crossings, Trump declared a national emergency and diverted billions in Pentagon funds to build a wall on the US-Mexico border.

Mexican Foreign Minister Marcelo Ebrard wrote in a tweet on Monday morning that he would brief the Mexican President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador on the details of the agreement.

Ebrard told reporters the talks had focused on migration, not commerce, and hypothesized that Trump was calculating an economic boost resulting from his decision not to implement the tariffs.

"We do not have a specific agreement on products of that nature", he said.

Trump has spent the days since Friday's announcement defending the scope of the deal.

Mr Ebrard said the U.S. side also wanted to designate Mexico as a "safe third country", which would have required Mexico to take in asylum seekers heading for the USA and process their claims on its own soil.

Mexico said it would deploy its National Guard throughout the country from Monday with 6,000 additional troops being sent to its southern border with Guatemala. US officials had been working to expand the program, which has led to the return of about 11,000 to Mexico without Mexico's public embrace.

There was no specific migration reduction target, Ebrard said, noting that when he began talks in Washington last week to defuse the tariff threat, the USA government wanted Mexico to accept a "safe third country" agreement over migration. Without the threat, Trump has insisted, Mexico never would have acted.

"When will the Failing New York Times admit that their front page story on the the new Mexico deal at the Border is a FRAUD", Trump asked, "and nothing more than a badly reported "hit job" on me, something that has been going on since the first day I announced for the presidency!
