The migration deal imposed on Mexico this week by US President Donald Trump under the threat of punitive tariffs was a victory for "hostage-taking" over worldwide rules, a former head of the World Trade Organisation (WTO) says.
(Gateway Pundit) After President Trump played hardball with Mexico, forcing the USA neighbor to crack down on the flow of foreigners to the US border, Democrats bashed the president.
Mexico has also agreed, it said, to take "unprecedented steps to increase enforcement to curb irregular migration", including the deployment of the Mexican National Guard throughout the country, starting June 10, especially on its southern border with Guatemala. "He says that Mexico will take action to "greatly reduce, or eliminate, Illegal Immigration coming from Mexico and into the United States", but if past is prologue, this is likely to be one of the president's typical, bogus solutions to justify backing off things like the tariffs, which he precipitously proposed, much to the consternation of the business community nationwide and Republicans in the House and Senate".
The agreement that suspended Trump's plan to tariff Mexican goods by 5% percent was the focus of a few of his tweets Saturday.
Ebrard said Mexico will also allow the U.S.to expand its practice of returning border asylum applicants to Mexico while their cases are processed.
"As my brother Wolf said earlier, our country is under attack right now, and it's under attack through the undermining of our Constitution", Griffin said.
The United States and Mexico will continue discussions on illegal immigration and if the measures in the agreement "do not have the expected results, they will take further actions" and announce them within 90 days.

The decision not to put tariffs on Mexican imports opens the door to the possible ratification by lawmaker in the US, Mexico and Canada of the renegotiated North American Free Trade Agreement.
"We are in a full-blown emergency, and I can not say this stronger: the system is broken", acting CBP Commissioner John Sanders told the Post, saying agents have apprehended over 680,000 migrants in the past eight months, more than the population of Miami.
The president had threatened to continue raising tariffs on Mexico to as high as 25 percent after the initial levies went into effect if Mexico didn't meet his demands to stop migrants from reaching the United States. Mr. Trump is threatening the tariffs to force Mexico to do more to stop the flow of Central American refugee claimants arriving at the USA border.
It was not immediately clear whether Mexico made such a pledge. And it represented a win for members of Trump's own party who had flooded the White House with pleading calls as well as aides who had been eager to convince the president to back down.
"I think it was a fair balance, because they have more drastic measures and proposals", he told reporters as he left the State Department following a final day of talks that lasted 12 hours.
Of those, almost 133,000 crossed the US-Mexico border illegally, including more than 11,000 unaccompanied children.
In return, the US promises that those asylum applicants will be "rapidly returned" to Mexico as they await the result of their claims.
Mexico has already pledged to send about 6,000 National Guard troops to its southern border with Guatemala in a bid to cut off the flow of Central American migrants whose journey to the US's southern border has led to a steep spike in border crossings in recent months.
