Mexico will “rapidly” deploy their National Guard to the southern border with Guatemala starting this week; sending the troops to avoid a proposed 5% tariff on all Mexican goods entering the United States.

 

“Deployment of National Guard forces to Mexico’s southern border was due to start on Wednesday and will advance quickly under a migration control deal signed last week with the United States, Foreign Minister Marcelo Ebrard said on Wednesday,” reports Reuters.

 

“Starting from today, and in the coming days, the deployment is going to progress rapidly,” said Foreign Minister Marcelo Ebrard alongside Mexican President Obrador.

 

“The deal averted escalating import tariffs of 5% on Mexican goods, which U.S. President Donald Trump had vowed to impose unless Mexico did more to curb illegal migration into the United States,” adds the website.

 

US and Mexican officials have reportedly agreed to a 45-day timeline to crackdown on the flow of illegal immigrants crossing the United States’ southern border.

 

“A lot of things have to happen in 45 days,” Ebrard said. “We are going to do what we said we are going to do.”

 

The United States and Mexico reached a “signed agreement” Friday evening ending days of tough talks and forging a new deal that will suspend the White House’s 5% tariff on Mexican goods and crackdown on illegal immigration at the Southern Border.

 

“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,” he said. “Mexico, in turn, has agreed to take strong measures to….stem the tide of Migration through Mexico, and to our Southern Border. This is being done to greatly reduce, or eliminate, Illegal Immigration coming from Mexico and into the United States. Details of the agreement will be released shortly by the State Department. Thank you!”

“If we are unable to make the deal, Mexico will begin paying Tariffs at the 5% level on Monday!” Trump tweeted earlier Friday.

Well it certainly looks like this is a win for the USA!  Yeah, it was President Trump's idea, Good Job Mr. President!

You posted this before so we are at it again. Post it all the time and it will become true. It will not. Dictator Trump got nothing new and gave in to the Reb. in the Senate who told him they would vote to cancel the tariffs. How about Dictator Trump telling us yesterday that he will break the law again in 2020 and take material from foreign powers for use in the election. He told us he did it in 2016. He said his FBI Director was wrong about the law he quoted to congress during a hearing on the subject. We have a Dictator who is breaking all kind of laws and is paying food support money to 2 foreign owners of a meal packing plant. Over 20 million so far. These are what the far right is trying to cover up when they keep riposting the same stories to distract people form the real issues.

 Just because it's not something talked about on Fox doesn't mean everyone else wasn't aware of it.

 

 


Actually, Fox News did have a couple of reports.

It only took threats and bluster to get Mexico to agree to what they had agreed to months ago. So with all of Trumps threats and bluster he got nothing.

New York Times on Twitter:

Breaking News: President Trump hailed his new deal with Mexico to avoid tariffs. But the terms were actually agreed on months ago, officials in both nations said.

I'll go with the 'face-saving' option. We've seen Trump pull this ploy before. Part of art of the deal?



From the NYT article:



Mr. Trump’s decision to use trade as a bludgeon against Mexico was driven in part by his obsession with stopping what he falsely calls an invasion of the country and in part by a desire to satisfy his core supporters, many of who have grown angry at his inability to build his promised border wall.


=================================================================

I take it that you, like many on the left do not think we have a crisis on the border.



We've had this conversation before, so no need for repitition and irrelevant to the discussion at hand about 'the deal'.

 

However, I am delighted that tariffs have been avoided... for now. 

 

As to this deal was made months ago and the press did not let us know about it. Hard to swallow. It could be like saying a player just signed a contract BUT it was talked about months ago.

Before a contract or deal is signed, I am sure it is talked about in advance. For example, the Migrant Protection Protocols was formalized in January.  But I will be magnimous and pat Donnie on his little head and say, "Good boy. You did good" like you do to assuage any narcissist and avoid further unpleasant tantrums. "Now go outside and play, Donnie, and let the adults do their work."

That's all in the article. The talks were started under the former DHS sec, and continued in other meetings, but there was no formal agreement.

They did. Having people wait in Mexico till their hearing started about a year ago, and was for the most part ended by a Federal Judge who said it was against the law. It is now back in court again. Mexico had no National Guard, and just created one and are still training it. They were going to use in at the southern border. That was reported to. The other things Trump demanded he did not get. Trump said Mexico agreed to purchase more arg. product from the US and how great that was. They did not so Trump lied again. Once again we see the far right does not know or understand the subject.

Westwood reported Trump’s Friday night announcement before showing video of the Mexican ambassador calling what the country agreed to “unprecedented.”

Unprecedented?  in what way?

 

“I am pleased to inform you that the United States of America has reached a signed agreement with Mexico,” Trump announced via Twitter Friday night. “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. This is being done to greatly reduce, or eliminate, Illegal Immigration coming from Mexico and into the United States. Details of the agreement will be released shortly by the State Department. Thank you!” What are the strong measures,? Really? they didn't have soldiers before?  we will see what is actually done.

 

The president delved into more of the deal’s specifics on Saturday, including Mexico’s promise to deploy their own troops at the border.  Like I said before, Mexico didn't have an army until now?

 

“Now, there is the additional border enforcement and help in breaking up trafficking networks. The U.S. got almost everything it wanted from Mexico,” Blackwell noted from the anchor desk after Westwood signed off.  Don't count your chickens before they hatch not with Mexico.

 

The anchor’s admission comes as Rep. Maxine Waters and others framed the news as Trump caving from “just another bluff.”  Is not a bluf is simply not realizing how well Mexico can play this game.
