USA and Mexico agree on plan to stem flow of migrants

Migrants and residents use a makeshift raft to cross the Suchiate river from Tecun Uman in Guatemala to Ciudad Hidalgo in southern Mexico

Mexico's president, Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador, said on Twitter that "Thanks to the support of all Mexicans, the imposition of tariffs on Mexican products exported to the US has been avoided".

"I think it's a fair balance because they had more drastic measures and proposals at the start and we reached some middle point", he said, emphasizing the importance to Mexico of having kept safe third country out of the deal.

The joint communique was a result of talks between Mexico and Washington where Trump threatened to impose the tariff on Mexican exports to the US with the aim of demanding Mexico to control the illegal immigration and improve border security.

Under the deal, Mexico will also increase its efforts to stop illegal migrants from Central America travelling through Mexico to the United States.

According to the deal, Mexico has agreed to strengthen its security presence at the southern border to stop the flow of Central American migrants from entering the United States and boost intelligence sharing with Washington. "Mexico is America's leading trading partner, the second-largest buyer of USA goods, and the third-biggest consumer of US agricultural products".

But Leticia Calderon Cheluis, a migration expert at the Mora Institute in Mexico City, said the agreement is essentially a series of compromises exclusively by Mexico, which she said committed to "a double clamp at both borders".

"Our expectation is that Mexico will do what they've committed to do and our expectation is that we won't need to put tariffs in place, but obviously if that's not the case, the president retains that authority".

U.S. President Donald Trump, who has continually railed against illegal immigration as a candidate and since taking office, had threatened to impose 5% import tariffs on all Mexican goods from Monday if Mexico did not do more to tighten its borders.

San Diego-area business leaders are expressing relief this weekend after President Donald Trump announced a deal between the United States and Mexico that will avert any added tariffs on Mexican imports.

A few police appeared briefly at dawn on the Mexican shore, people said, but they vanished as fast. More than 144,000 migrants were taken into custody after illegally crossing the border last month, according to data released by U.S. Customs and Border Protection on June 5.

Republicans in Congress had also warned the White House that they were ready to stand up to the president to try to block his tariffs, which they anxious would spike costs to US consumers, harm the economy and imperil a major pending US-Mexico-Canada trade deal. -Mexican border. The tariffs would have otherwise been implemented on Monday. Trump has often said unpredictability helps him negotiate.

"It was an absolutely insane situation here- the lines were crazy- what's happening is that there's a scramble to get merchandise across the border; you are seeing a lot of companies trying to get their trucks across before Monday, in case the tariff is implemented", Pacheco said.

A final decision was made during an evening conference call once Trump return to the White House on Friday evening, and shortly thereafter he fired off his tweet announcing the deal.

While one could have predicted that Schumer and Pelosi would have opposed Trump's plan - they oppose everything Trump - the president even faced resistance within the Republican Party, especially from those members who worship at the altar of free trade.

"We have an agreement that, if they implement, will be effective", he said of Trump's strategy in using a tariff threat to wield negotiation results.
