BREAKING: Mexico to ‘Rapidly’ Deploy Troops to Guatemala Border TODAY to Avoid Trump’s Tariffs

posted by Hannity Staff - 6.12.19

Mexico will “rapidly” deploy their National Guard to the southern border with Guatemala starting this week; sending the troops to avoid a proposed 5% tariff on all Mexican goods entering the United States.

“Deployment of National Guard forces to Mexico’s southern border was due to start on Wednesday and will advance quickly under a migration control deal signed last week with the United States, Foreign Minister Marcelo Ebrard said on Wednesday,” reports Reuters.

“Starting from today, and in the coming days, the deployment is going to progress rapidly,” said Foreign Minister Marcelo Ebrard alongside Mexican President Obrador.

“The deal averted escalating import tariffs of 5% on Mexican goods, which U.S. President Donald Trump had vowed to impose unless Mexico did more to curb illegal migration into the United States,” adds the website.

US and Mexican officials have reportedly agreed to a 45-day timeline to crackdown on the flow of illegal immigrants crossing the United States’ southern border.

“A lot of things have to happen in 45 days,” Ebrard said. “We are going to do what we said we are going to do.”

The United States and Mexico reached a “signed agreement” Friday evening ending days of tough talks and forging a new deal that will suspend the White House’s 5% tariff on Mexican goods and crackdown on illegal immigration at the Southern Border.

“I am pleased to inform you that The United States of America has reached a signed agreement with Mexico. The Tariffs scheduled to be implemented by the U.S. on Monday, against Mexico, are hereby indefinitely suspended,” he said. “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. Details of the agreement will be released shortly by the State Department. Thank you!”

“If we are unable to make the deal, Mexico will begin paying Tariffs at the 5% level on Monday!” Trump tweeted earlier Friday.

BORDER SURGE: Illegal Immigration Up 99%, Experts Now Predict 1,072,000 Migrants THIS YEAR

The escalating border crisis is even worse than previously thought; with new data showing a 99% increase in illegal immigration from the same time last year and warning more than 1,072,000 migrants are likely to enter the United States in 2019.

“U.S. Customs and Border Protection on Wednesday revealed that May apprehensions topped 144,000. This year has seen 676,315 apprehensions so far, up 99% over this time last year,” reports the Washington Examiner. “That shocked immigration officials who had hoped it would drop in part due to the Trump administration’s get tough efforts on the border and the potentially deadly heat migrants encounter traveling through northern Mexico.”

“Steven Kopits, the president of Princeton Policy Advisors which has predicted that immigrant apprehensions would reach 931,000 this year, expressed concern about the May numbers and boosted his prediction to 1,072,000,” adds the Examiner.

Earlier this week, Mexican authorities stopped an additional ‘caravan’ of Central American migrants from crossing their southern border; a gesture that could help future trade talks with the Trump administration.

“Authorities blocked a new caravan of Central American migrants Wednesday after they entered Mexico bound for the United States, as the government scrambled to dodge President Donald Trump’s threat to impose tariffs over undocumented immigration,” reports Yahoo News.

“Soldiers and police forced hundreds of migrants in the group — which was mostly from Honduras — to a halt in the southern town of Metapa de Dominguez, about 12 kilometers (7.5 miles) from the Mexican-Guatemalan border,” adds the report.

The Trump administration is prepared to impose a 5% tariff on all Mexican products on Monday should their government fail to crackdown on illegal immigration flowing towards the United States.

The escalating crisis at the border took a turn for the worse in May 2019, with new statistics showing federal agents detained more than 55,000 children attempting to illegally enter the United States.

“The government set another grim record in May with more than 55,000 children nabbed by Border Patrol agents along the southwest border,” reports the Washington Times. “They were part of more than 130,000 unauthorized migrants Border Patrol agents and officers at the ports of entry encountered last month, up from about 109,000 in April and far higher than the 51,000 or so nabbed in May 2018.”

“As much as 60 percent of agents’ time is now spent babysitting illegal immigrants rather than patrolling the border, and they’re setting records for making rescues of migrants in distress. Meanwhile border detention facilities are packed, with more than 19,000 people in space that is already in crisis when it reaches 6,000,” adds the newspaper.

According to sources, the bill includes “$192,700,000 for improved medical care, transportation, and consumables to better ensure the health and safety of migrants who are temporarily in [U.S. Customs and Border Protection] custody,” claims a Congressional statement.

This crisis shows no signs of slowing down.

Original Story:

The Mexican government reportedly deployed their military to its southern border this week; offering major immigration concessions to the Trump administration to avoid proposed tariffs scheduled to take effect Monday.

“With just days to go until the Trump administration is set to impose punishing tariffs on Mexico unless the country halts the unprecedented flow of illegal immigrants across the southern border, numerous signs that Mexico would capitulate emerged Thursday — but it remained unclear Friday morning whether their efforts would satisfy the White House,” reports Fox News.

Reports in the evening indicated that Mexico’s negotiators with Washington have offered to immediately deploy 6,000 National Guard troops to the border with Guatemala. 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,” adds the article.

Mexican authorities prevented an additional ‘migrant caravan’ originating in Central America from entering its borders this week; a gesture that could help future trade talks with the Trump administration.
