Trump says progress made in US-Mexico talks 'not nearly enough'

The talks in Washington between Vice President Mike Pence, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and Mexican Foreign Minister Marcelo Ebrard continue Thursday.

This would include promises to keep asylum-seekers in Mexico and crackdown on human smugglers.

Most of the migrants trying to enter the country are from Guatemala, Honduras and El Salvador, countries wracked by gangs, violence and poverty.

The officials described the accord's framework on the condition of anonymity, citing the sensitivity of the worldwide negotiations, but they expressed optimism that the deal was attainable.

"We welcomed the efforts of the Mexican officials to offer solutions to the crisis at our southern border, but we need Mexico to do more", Pence said on Thursday.

Administration officials have said Mexico can prevent the tariffs by securing its southern border with Guatemala, cracking down on criminal smuggling organizations and entering into a "safe third country agreement" that would make it hard for those who enter Mexico from other countries to claim asylum in the U.S.

United States authorities at the southern border with Mexico have become overwhelmed in recent years by an increase in mostly Central American families and unaccompanied minors seeking asylum to escape violence back home.

Trump said Republicans would be "foolish" to try to stop him from imposing the tariffs.

Trump is demanding Mexico do more to control the flow of Central American migrants who pass through Mexico hoping to cross into the United States. We'll see what happens, but something pretty dramatic could happen.

Fox called on the corporate leaders across borders to band together as worries swell over whether a new free trade agreement will be rarified in the event the tariffs on Mexico take effect. "And I mean it, too". "He makes decisions out of his gut instead of his mind", Fox said, adding that Trump will likely back down on the tariffs because "everyone is against it".

Trump spoke before leaving Shannon, Ireland, for Normandy, France, where he took part in ceremonies commemorating the 75th anniversary of the D-Day landings that helped turn the tide of World War II. If he tries, Congress could act to block them.

The Trump administration is demanding that Mexican authorities intensify efforts to prevent Central American migrants from crossing Mexico to reach the United States.

In a tweet last week, President Donald Trump abruptly announced plans to slap 5 percent tariffs on all Mexican imports starting on June 10. But the Mexican government's proposed remedies were "not almost enough", he said.

Mexico would likely impose retaliatory tariffs, inflicting "almost immediate" pain on American consumers, said Duncan Wood, head of the Mexico Institute at the Wilson Center in Washington. It was the highest monthly figure in 13 years.

Talks were scheduled to continue Thursday at the State Department.

The deal would give the United States far more latitude to deport Central Americans seeking asylum to a third country, according to a US official and a Mexican official who spoke with the Post. But Trump's threats have already done damage in ways that might not be immediately obvious.

"Trump has got his new tool and he wants to use it and he will use it, not just because he can". Roughly two weeks ago, Trump agreed to lift tariffs on steel and aluminum imports from Mexico and Canada, meeting a condition that Senate Republicans had set before they would vote on the proposed U.S. -Mexico-Canada Agreement.

The tariff threat has raised questions over the future of a three-way deal with Canada to replace the North American Free Trade Agreement. A presidential tweet can't magically create the vast bureaucracy necessary to collect taxes on $1 billion in daily imports from Mexico.

"We are committed to enhancing the U.S. -Mexico economic relationship and favor more trade, not tariffs".

Administration officials have said Mexico can prevent the tariffs by securing its southern border with Guatemala, cracking down on criminal smuggling organizations and entering into a "safe third country agreement" that would make it hard for those who enter Mexico from other countries to claim asylum in the U.S. That is a situation that USA business groups are keen to avoid.
