Mexico eyes Brazil on US asylum deal, Trump reiterates tariff threat

On Monday, the 10th of June 2019, following a deal that averted a calamitous trade dispute between the two neighboring nations, Mexican Foreign Minister said that the United States and Mexico had been exploring additional options to restrict the flow of illegal immigrants from Central America including some measures to involve Brazil and Panama on to their efforts.

Besides, the Mexico’s Foreign Minister, Marcelo Ebrard had been quoted saying on his Monday’s (June 11th) speech that such measures to involve Brazil and Panama into their asylum deal would require, if number of illegal migrants entering into US soil through its southern border failed to decline within a timeframe of one and a half months.

Although the accord reached last week following a trade negotiation between the Mexican and US delegates hosted by US Vice President Mike Pence had averted an imminent tariff hike on all Mexican imports and risks of retaliatory tariffs from Mexico, it remained unclear how Mexico had decided to battle against an illegal immigrant flow of thousands through its Southern entrance to United States, however, according to the latest negotiation, Mexico had pledged to reinforce its Sothern border with Guatemala with additional 6,000 soldiers of its National Guard Militarized police force, though the force had years of past records of extreme corruption, analysts said.
