Mexico To Deploy 6,000 Troops Near Southeastern Border

Mexico has told the United States that it plans to deploy 6,000 national guard troops near its border with Guatemala to help stem the flow of Central American migrants reaching the U.S

This is definitely NEW and NOT FAKE! They have not been enforcing anything and why 4,000,000 people walked through Mexico to the US border>

Only 1 in 3 are apprehended.

130,000 apprehended at border in May X 3 = 390,000 or more may have snuck in unapprehended.
TIMES 12 = about 4,680,000 FOR THE YEAR.

50% - 70% “Getaways” in High Numbers Border Patrol

VADER radar detected 7,333 border crossers during its Arizona missions. Border Patrol agents reported 410 apprehensions during that time.

Everything Trump does is fake news.

My theory is that he knew the market would drop so his friends could buy stock at a deflated price only to see it rise in several days.

The MSN.com article just posted hints at regional cooperation, combining efforts of Brazil, Panama, and Guatemala, places that most of the migrants begin their journey. The arrangement requires asylum seekers to remain out of the US until asylum is received, very reasonable.

The migration is huge, greater than previous, contrary to what this CD article is suggesting.

I agree, it all looks new, not old, and workable. And I like the idea of regional cooperation. Now, if we can just get regional on prosperity and respect for other countries’ private politics, then maybe it’ll be all hunky-dory.
For anyone who wretches at giving Trump credit for anything positive, Trump and his usual advisors were out of the country and most of this deal was hammered out by a group of Mexican leaders who went to Washington and were waiting for him.

More details of the deal are still forthcoming. This article discusses how traffickers of migrants are going to be dealt with.

"According to officials from both governments and documents reviewed by The Washington Post. "
WHAT OFFICIALS?
“Mexican negotiators persuaded President Trump to back down from his tariff.”

It was Trump’s imposition of a tariff that terrified them. It was Trump’s hard stand that won the day the way he’s winning in China:

WTF Is Up With The Washington Post ? Three stories about Trump and the Russians that they’ve had to issue retractions for in as many weeks.

You should remove the obstacles between you and reality!

Hogwash. Obrador allowed more than a million Northern Triangle, Cubans, Mexicans, Africans and Middle Eastern people to waltz straight through in just six months, usually facilitating them with transportation. Many crossed undetected and almost none will see the inside of a courtroom. They came to collect the lavish entitlements offered by the U.S. If Obrador reneges on this deal, President Trump will effectuate the promised tariffs and offset them with UK trade that’s sure to occur naturally if Brexit happens. Nieto scoffed at the U.S. and Obrador will pay for more than the wall if he follows that ill-advised tactic.
