Mexico reaches deal with US on illegal immigrants, averts trade war

On Friday, the 7th of June 2019, US President Donald Trump said that the Mexican Government had reached a deal with the United States “pledging to take strong measures” in order to contain migrations of Central America entering United States crossing the US-Mexico Sothern border, meanwhile averting what could have another grueling trade war yielding catastrophic end-result for the Mexican economy.

Last week, Trump had threated to impose about 5 percent tariff on all Mexican imports effective from June 10th, unless Mexico agreed to his demands and tightened its borders. Nonetheless, the latest announcement came forward three days of talk between Mexican and US negotiators in Washington DC.

Adding that the Mexico tariffs would remain suspended for an indefinite period of time, Trump tweeted later on Friday (June 7th), “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”.

Besides, the US President Donald Trump had also added the details of the terms of negotiation would soon be released by the US State Department.
