Mexico... not our politicians, but Mexico is doing more for our border than Chuck n’ Nancy has thanks to President Trump.
President Trump on Monday announced the agree to secure with the border has been signed and if Mexico does not follow through, tariffs would be enforced.
“We have fully signed and documented another very important part of the Immigration and Security deal with Mexico, one that the U.S. has been asking about getting for many years. It will be revealed in the not too distant future and will need a vote by Mexico’s Legislative body!..,” Trump tweeted.
“....We do not anticipate a problem with the vote but, if for any reason the approval is not forthcoming, Tariffs will be reinstated!”
Mexico has recently announced that they will deploy approximately 6,000 troops to ward off potential migrants.
The Mexican government will deploy 6,000 troops to its southern border with Guatemala on Monday — members of a billion-dollar force originally set up to combat drug-trafficking cartels — as part of a series of “unprecedented steps” meant to stem the massive influx of migrants to the US, the State Department said.
The agreement, reached late Friday after three days of intense negotiations in Washington, is a victory for President Trump after he threatened to impose tariffs on Mexican goods if the country does not crack down on Central American migrants journeying through Mexico toward the US’s southern border.
Mexico’s newly created National Guard will take the lead in the enforcement effort, according to reports in Mexican media. A group of 200 troops were already on Mexico’s southern border this past week to intercept a caravan of 500 migrants that arrived Wednesday. The 60,000-strong force was established in March.
