Strange: Mexico Seems To Be Doing Things To Avoid Trump’s Tariffs

Democrats, a few squishy Republicans, and a whole bunch of #NeverTrumpers were freaking out over Trump’s threatened tariffs on Mexico (thought, let’s face it, they freak out over everything Trump says and does). They said they would never work. Huh

Mexico deploys military to curb migration, reportedly offers major concessions as Trump tariffs loom

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 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.

For virtually all Central American migrants, that country would not be the United States. The Trump administration has already begun requiring asylum applicants to wait in Mexico while their claims are processed, saying too many applicants were using the system fraudulently to escape into the country. Last month, the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals denied a request to stop that practice temporarily.

However, two administration officials tell Fox News that while talks have been going well with Mexico, and that Mexico is making some fresh proposals, there is not yet a deal that U.S. officials are sure to imminently accept.

Democrats may hate the United States, and many other nations might denigrate us, but, at the end of the day, the U.S. has a lot of power, and nations need the U.S. What if Trump puts in a measure that would keep Americans from going to Mexico for vacations? Think that would do some damage to Mexico financially?

People keep forgetting that Trump is not a politician, but a businessman, and he’s not going to do the long, boring diplomacy thing. He’s going to use a different set of tools. Expect him to throw out some carrots to Mexico shortly.

    An expert on the Mexican military says their efforts are cosmetic, they have no actual “National Guard” to deploy, just new armbands on the same lousy military/federales. trump has Mexico against the wall.

    The taxes on incoming Mexican goods will hurt US importers and also US consumers. Even the GOP is pushing back against trump’s tax increases.

    Either halt or tax to the bejebus those sending money home to Mexico. It’s over $23 billion and it’s Mexico’s largest source of foreign revenue.

    We have the muscle but we lack the will to use it.
