Mexico is Preventing Illegals from Entering the US
When President Trump announced that he was going to impose tariffs against Mexico unless the Mexican government helped the US crack down on illegal immigration, Trump’s opponents were quick to criticize this political move. Congressional Democrats and Republicans alike argued that the negotiation tactic would not work, and that Trump was forcing the US into a trade war with one of its key trading partners.
Within days, however, the Mexican government had come to an agreement with the United States, and no tariffs against the country were ever issued. Now, in addition to strengthening their own border security, Mexico is actively preventing illegals from entering the United States as well.
In response to Trump’s demands, Mexico has dramatically increased the number of troops stationed at the border. Already, this increase in troops is having the desired effect. Just a few days ago, troops from the Mexican national guard stopped and detained a group of Central American immigrants who were trying to cross the Mexican border into El Paso, Texas.
At this point, it’s safe to say that Trump’s hardball negotiation tactic with Mexico has worked. To learn more about how Mexico is now working with the Trump administration in order to solve the illegal immigration crisis, be sure to check out the video below.
