Mexico contradicts Trump's tweet of reaching a farm deal

Migrants and residents use a makeshift raft to cross the Suchiate river from Tecun Uman in Guatemala to Ciudad Hidalgo in southern Mexico

And while such a measure never made it into the agreement, Mexican officials also expressed an openness to discussing something they had long opposed: having Mexico become a "safe third country", which would make it harder for asylum-seekers who pass through the country to claim refuge in the U.S. The country will also work toward dismantling "human smuggling and trafficking organizations as well as their illicit financial and transportation networks". Those people had anxious about the negative economic consequences for Americans and argued that tariffs, which probably would have drawn retaliatory taxes on USA exports, would also hurt the administration politically.

- Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) June 8, 2019Brandon Judd, National Border Patrol Council: "That's going to be a huge deal because Mexico will be using their strong Immigration Laws - A game changer".

Lamy said it was still not clear whether the United States president was more interested in reforming the WTO or neutralizing it.

In return, the Trump administration said they were committed to working toward accelerating the processing of asylum claims as well as finalize removal proceedings as quickly as possible. Both parties agreed to take further action if the measures do not achieve the expected results and finalize additional provisions within 90 days. Nielsen announced the Migrant Protection Protocols during a House Judiciary Committee hearing in late December.

Now that the tariffs have been avoided, McConnell posted a statement on Twitter praising the president.

"They took 100 Mexican pesos ($5) from me, 200 from him, about 1,000 altogether between us - and that other family", said Jaime Mejia, 44, a Salvadoran pastor, squatting on a Tapachula sidewalk, nodding down the block at clutches of bedraggled men, women and children perched among bags and bundles.

Meanwhile, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., mocked Trump's boasting on the deal. "This is an historic night!" he tweeted. Trump tweeted earlier Friday.

Regarding Donald Trump's statement that "his country does not need Mexico, but Mexico does need the United States" Lopez Obrador responded with a smaile and a gesture of peace and love.

Lamy said it was understandable that Mexico had sought to extricate itself from the tariff bind, but noted it ran the risk of facing more threats in future.

He also said in the In the last two months, "we have more than doubled those two full years of crisis" of an illegal immigration surge, repeating that 144,000 people were detained for illegally crossing the border last month. "Congress will continue to hold the Trump Administration accountable for its failures to address the humanitarian situation at our southern border".

He was in "absolutely no doubt" that the WTO would have found in favor of Mexico if López Obrador had asked it to arbitrate the dispute with Trump, a process he said would have taken around two years. Look at Europe. Nations there are meekly transferring control of their defense and foreign policy, of trade and immigration policy, to a super-state called the European Union; they are even giving up control of their currencies, which means control of their destinies.

Beto O'Rourke, the 2020 Democratic presidential hopeful from Texas, was more direct in his criticism of Trump despite the deal.

He said there were no plans for trade talks in Washington or Beijing before Trump and Xi Jinping are due to meet in Osaka for the G20 summit on June 28-29. Trump has blamed the WTO for not doing enough to defend U.S. trade interests, and in August 2018 threatened to pull out of the organization.
