Trump says U.S. and Mexico have reached a deal on tariffs, immigration

Donald Trump says tariffs on Mexico suspended after agreement reached on migration

US, Mexico sign agreement to slow immigration, avoid tariffs

- The United States warned Friday that President Donald Trump's punitive tariffs on imports from Mexico were on course to take effect next week, despite headway in talks on stemming the surge in migration towards the U.S. border.

US and Mexican officials met for more than 10 hours Friday during a third day of talks at the US State Department trying to hash out a deal that would satisfy Trump's demand that Mexico dramatically increase its efforts to crack down on migrants.

Speaking after the deal was announced, Ebrard said the accord did not contain a proposal made by the Trump administration to return asylum seekers from Guatemala to Mexico, and Honduran and Salvadoran asylum seekers to Guatemala. He has been frustrated by a surge through Mexico of Central American migrants seeking asylum in the United States.

The United States and Mexico have reached a deal to avert a tariff war, with Mexico pledging to take "strong measures" to contain the migration of mostly Central Americans crossing the southern USA border.

President Donald Trump says he has "indefinitely suspended" tariffs he has threatened to impose Monday on Mexican imports. "This is being done to greatly reduce, or eliminate, Illegal Immigration coming from Mexico and into the United States", Trump said.

It was, however, not absolutely certain that the president did touch the Queen as she rose at the end of his speech. The bold color was a departure from the more neutral sartorial choices the first lady has been making this week.

United States business groups were generally opposed to the tariffs, warning they would raise costs for companies and lead to higher prices for American consumers. Trump's fellow Republicans were also not keen on the prospect of a two-front trade war.

Speaking to reporters on Saturday on the sidelines of the G20 meeting of finance ministers and central bank governors, Mnuchin said: "We couldn't be more pleased with the agreement that we reached. Additionally, Mexico has reportedly agreed to a major overhaul of reasonable asylum protocols, which would require asylum applicants to seek permanent refuge in the first country they arrive in after fleeing their home countries", adds the article.

"Border arrests for May are at 133,000 because of Mexico & the Democrats in Congress refusing to budge on immigration reform", he tweeted.

Under the deal, Mexico will deploy its National Guard to throughout the country, with a priority along the US-Mexico border, from Monday. "These are organized criminal organizations that are smuggling humans", he said.

U.S. importers could have been hit because the regional value chains that exist around the U.S. -Mexico border see production processes that "often involve intermediate inputs moving back and forth" numerous times before a product reaches a consumer, wrote fellow Geoffrey Gertz.

In late March, Trump threatened to shut the entire US-Mexico border if Mexico didn't immediately halt illegal immigration.

It said 84,542 were families and 11,507 unaccompanied children.

Customs and Border Protection recently released the number of migrants illegally crossing the border in May, showing a 13-year high of 144,278.

Throughout Thursday and Friday, White House officials echoed their boss by insisting he planned to go ahead with the 5 percent tariffs if no deal was reached.

The United States is suspending plans to impose tariffs on all Mexican goods, which were due to come into effect on Monday. The denial was even reportedly made to Richard Grenell, America's ambassador to Germany, who is the most senior openly gay person in Trump's administration and who is leading a worldwide push to decriminalize homosexuality.
