Mexican National Guard mobilizes – As the Trump administration continues with its barrage of proposals for immigration law reform, the U.S.-Mexico border has been caught up in a great deal of discussion. The administration often points out that a large number of undocumented individuals are crossing through the southern border of the United States at an alarming rate. Based on the numbers of people being detained at the border, it is estimated that a large percentage of those individuals are from countries that have been torn by violence and struggling economies, such as Honduras, Guatemala, and other Central American countries.
Threat of Tariffs for Enforcement
Detailed within a letter which is dated June 7, the letter provides that Mexico and the U.S. “will immediately begin discussions to establish definitive terms for a binding bilateral agreement to further address burden-sharing and the assignment of responsibility for processing refugee claims of migrants.” These discussions were prompted after President Trump threatened to increase tariffs on Mexican goods at a starting rate of five-percent.
Mexican National Guard on the Move
To demonstrate its commitment to these discussions on immigration reform and border security, the Mexican government has promised to send at least six thousand national guard members to its shared border with Guatemala. The U.S. administration has set a target goal of forty-five days for the Mexican government to achieve some kind of noticeable progress in reducing the number of illegal entries at the U.S. border.
