President Trump is not messing around with Mexico anymore.
For far too long they have allowed the U.S. to handle the immigration crisis they are allowing to continue.
But Mexico just did one thing that put a big smile on Trump’s face.
President Donald Trump shocked the world with his latest announcement about Mexico.
He came out stating that he will impose a 5% tariff on Mexican goods until they handle the problem of illegal immigration and that it will grow as long as they don’t take action.
The left and establishment in the Republican Party lost their minds in response.
They screamed about “free trade,” and about how this proposal will harm the economy.
But as it turns out, President Trump is right yet again, and the tariffs won’t even need to go into effect.
Just days after his announcement Mexico signed an agreement with the United States to take harsh measures on illegal immigration.
Trump first made the announcement on Twitter:
“I am pleased to inform you that The United States of America has reached a signed agreement with Mexico. The Tariffs scheduled to be implemented by the U.S. on Monday, against Mexico, are hereby indefinitely suspended. Mexico, in turn, has agreed to take strong measures to stem the tide of Migration through Mexico, and to our Southern Border.”
The U.S. State Department followed up with further details in a statement which said:
“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.”
This means that Mexico will house those making asylum claims instead of allowing them to enter the United States.
And they are already taking steps to follow through.
Over the weekend, Mexico apprehended nearly 800 illegal immigrants making their way to the U.S. border.
According to the National Migration Institute, they apprehended 791 illegal migrants on the Gulf coast state of Veracruz.
This is one of the biggest apprehensions Mexico has even conducted.
And it proves just how serious they are taking Trump’s threat of tariffs.
Mexico is already taking serious actions.
They are deploying 6,000 newly-formed National Guard troops to its southern border with Guatemala, which is one of the biggest hotbeds of illegal immigrants heading to cross Mexico towards the United States.
Mexico is also allowing more U.S. asylum seekers to remain in Mexico, along with increasing their operations to stop drug and human smuggling.
This is a move that Democrats are furious about.
Trump is proving he can get things done on the border.
Now the big thing he has left to do is building a wall on the border.
Little progress has been made due to obstruction from the Democrat Party.
But Trump is still pushing forward on it.
Do you think Trump will succeed in building a wall on the border?
