Mexico Sends Troops to Its Southern Border

Trump on Friday said he was suspending plans for tariffs on Mexico that he'd been threatening to impose starting this week after the country promised new steps to stem an influx of illegal migration into the U.S. Trump now says he thinks the agreement will mean "a lot fewer people coming up".

Mr Ebrard earlier said the U.S. had been insistent on this measure, and that they had wanted this to be implemented straight away.

President Donald Trump on Wednesday warned of implementing a "phase two" if the immigration deal with Mexico does not yield satisfactory results.

Trump has said his agreement with Mexico - made after he threatened to increase tariffs on its goods if the country didn't stop illegal immigrants from crossing into the USA - has secret provisions that have not been revealed.

Mexico is due to deploy National Guard troops to its southern border with Guatemala on Wednesday as part of an agreement to cut the number of people who travel through Mexico in hopes of entering the United States.

Many migrants say they are afraid of returning to their home countries, which triggers a USA immigration court process that can take months or years to resolve due to backlogs in the system. In announcing the deal, a relieved Mexican Foreign Minister Marcelo Ebrard said the "most important thing is that they didn't apply tariffs and we didn't experience an economic slowdown". However, three Mexican officials said Saturday that they were not aware of any side accord in the works, and that agricultural trade hadn't been discussed during three days of negotiations in Washington that culminated in the joint communique between the countries last Friday. We're doing very well together.

Canada To Ban Single-Use Plastics!
In addition, the European Union earlier this year passed legislation to ban single-use plastic products starting in 2021. Canada has pledged to ban single-use plastics and "hold companies responsible" for plastic waste by 2021.

It also stated that Mexico had committed to doing everything it could immediately to become a safe third country.

If Mexico fails to curb migration in 45 days, other countries will be drawn into the matter. Can you tell us more about what he had to say on that subject? But that's what they want to do because they want to produce.

Last month Trump threatened he would impose a 5 per cent tariff on Mexican imports if the country didn't assist in stopping Central American migrants from flowing into the USA illegally.

One section says Mexico has "within 45 days" to slow the flow of migrants to the US.

CORNISH: As we mentioned, Mexico's foreign minister was speaking today about all of this.

Trump brandished a document outside the White House and close up photographs of the text showed that the Central American country will enforce specific domestic laws if the U.S. is not appeased by the results of its initial efforts. We had nothing, and the reason we had nothing is because Mexico felt they didn't have to give us anything.
