Deal Maker: Mexico caves to tarrif threats, unclear if enough for Trump

NY Times

The Washington post indicated that Mexico’s negotiators with Washington have offered to immediately deploy 6,000 National Guard troops to the border with Guatemala to curb illegal immigration.

Additionally, Mexico has reportedly agreed to a major overhaul of reasonable asylum protocols, which would require asylum applicants to seek permanent refuge in the first country they arrive in after fleeing their home countries.

Fox reports, on Thursday, Mexico’s financial intelligence agency announced it had frozen the bank accounts of 26 people who it claimed “have presumably participated in migrant smuggling and the organization of illegal migrant caravans.”

It is yet to be seen if this would be enough to satisfy Trump to good off with tarrifs that were set to take place in a few days.
