Trump Nixes Plans For Mexican Import Tariffs After Reaching Immigration Deal

The words Trump Nixes Plans For Mexican Import Tariffs After Reaching Immigration Deal
Patty Aguilar | 12 June, 2019, 21:22

Mexican officials say they are beginning deployment of 6,000 National Guard troops for immigration enforcement, an accelerated commitment made as part of an agreement with the United States last week to head off threatened us tariffs on imports from Mexico.

Despite the president's insistence that there is a secret deal, the Mexican government has denied that there are any undisclosed parts of the U.S. - Mexico deal.

"In here is the agreement", Trump said, pulling the paper from a coat pocket and repeatedly holding it up as he spoke to reporters.

"You go to the south and the first thing you ask yourself is, 'Right, where's the border?' There's nothing", he said on Tuesday. The video has gone viral online amidst a surge in the number of migrants seeking asylum in the United States.

In total, there are 39 new cars and trucks built by USA companies in Mexico and imported to the States. "If they don't get approval, we'll have to think in terms of tariffs". We had nothing, and the reason we had nothing is because Mexico felt they didn't have to give us anything.

The controversial - and teetotal - U.S. president was talking to anchor Joe Kernen on the station's flagship news and markets program Squawk Box on Monday about his imposition of tariffs on China, when he raised the "unfair" issue of tariffs on wine. "If we have to participate in a regional model like the one I have just described, we would have to present that to Congress".

Contrary to Mexico's foreign minister Marcelo Ebrard's comments of no secret deal with the U.S., as reported by New York Times, Jabin Botsford, Staff Photographer at The Washington Post, and VICE news, gave details of the deal waved at them recently.

13-0 win 'part of growing the game', says US captain
For all that have issue with many goals: for some players this is there first World Cup goal, and they should be excited. The USWNT finished with an incredible 39 shots, 10 corners, and 75 percent possession in the rout.

This comes as Mexico steps up efforts to slow migration from Central America, to avoid US tariffs.

Mexico's foreign minister, Marcelo Ebrard, said Mexico also agreed to a 45-day timeline to show increased enforcement efforts were effective in reducing the people flows.

But he expressed optimism Tuesday that the additional talks will not be necessary.

Mexico also commits to immediate (ly) (UNREADABLE) domestic laws and regulations with a view to identifying any changes that (UNREADABLE) to bring into force and implement such an agreement.

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.

After Trump and Lopez Obrador put out the joint statement, The New York Times published its article claiming the deal was reached months ago.
