Trump threatens duties if Mexico does not stop immigration
Mexico City capitulates: it will deploy the Army
Donald Trump had announced 5% duties on all Mexican goods imported into America, starting next Monday, which will gradually rise to 25% from October if illegal immigration is not stopped. Although the majority leader in the Senate, Republican Mitch McConnell has warned that on the measure the president cannot be said strong of the support of his Gop party, the threat seems to have had its effects, so much so that Mexico wants to deploy 6 thousand soldiers on the southern border with Guatemala to prevent migrants from entering its territory, and from there to pass through the United States.
This was reported by "BBC", citing the statement by Mexican Foreign Minister Marcelo Ebrard, who came to Washington to try to prevent the US from introducing commercial duties on Mexican goods. A necessary measure, according to Donald Trump, which points to the failure of the Mexico City government to take effective action to stop the flow of immigrants.
