Mexico agrees to accept more USA asylum seekers

Open this

The state department released a joint declaration Friday evening, which says "Mexico will take unprecedented steps to increase enforcement to curb irregular migration, to include the deployment of its National Guard throughout Mexico, giving priority to its southern border".

Trump had threatened to impose 5% import tariffs on all Mexican goods from Monday if Mexico did not agree to his demands to tighten its borders.

"If we are able to make the deal with Mexico, and there is a good chance that we will, they will begin purchasing farm and agricultural products at very high levels, starting immediately", he said.

The move puts to an end - for now - a threat that had sparked dire warnings from members of Trump's own party, who warned the tariffs would damage the economy, drive up prices for consumers and imperil an updated North American trade pact.

The U.S. Labor Department reported on Friday that job growth slowed sharply in May and wages rose less than expected, raising fears that a loss of momentum in economic activity could be spreading to the labor market.

"'People no longer will be released into the USA", the quote continued. "It is very, very significant and we very much appreciate the commitments that Mexico has made to help us on those important immigration issues".

Mexican Foreign Secretary Marcelo Ebrard, who said Thursday his country had agreed to deploy 6,000 National Guard troops to its border with Guatemala, tweeted the news late Friday that there would be no "tariff application on Monday".

The talks were said to be focused, in part, on attempting to reach a compromise on changes that would make it harder for migrants who pass through Mexico from other countries to claim asylum in the USA, those monitoring the situation said.

With such a plan in place, the United States could send Guatemala asylum seekers to Mexico, and those from Honduras and El Salvador to Guatemala. The two countries have reached a deal after days of negotiations.

Mexican President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador, who had planned to head on Saturday to the border city of Tijuana to show solidarity ahead of the tariffs, said that his trip would instead be to "celebrate". "I'm optimistic we can achieve that".

"Now that that problem is solved, I'm sure we won't be hearing any more about it in the future", he added.

"The causes of the migratory chaos aren't being analyzed, only the effects", he said. He has been frustrated by a surge through Mexico of Central American migrants seeking asylum in the United States.

"In response, Mexico will authorize the entrance of all of those individuals for humanitarian reasons, in compliance with its worldwide obligations, while they await the adjudication of their asylum claims", the declaration said.
