    The announcement of Guillén's resignation came the same day Mexico's government released the text of an agreement signed last week between the U.S. and Mexico, which states that the two countries will begin negotiations on plans for Mexico to share some of the burden of processing refugee claims at the southern U.S. border.

    López Obrador's government has reportedly sought to get control of the flow of migrants heading north through the country since taking office months ago and recently announced plans to send the country's national guard to its southern border with Guatemala.

    President Trump threatened recently to impose tariffs on Mexico if the country did not substantially reduce the number of migrants heading to the southern border of the U.S.

    Apparently the former immigration chief wasn't seeing eye to eye with the new Mexican President over its own border security.

    Trumps new policy makes Mexico an asylum buffer, and he's also in talks with Guatemala to do the same.

    Glad to see Mexico on board-now lets see them prove it.

    Before his resignation, it would appear the position of Mexico’s government was to move anyone and everyone into the USA.

    I have to give trump credit where credit is due.
    This was a solution I never even considered.

    Now we just need to reform immigration laws, reform birthright citizenship, end social programs to illegals and institute a national e-verify program.

    The problem will be largely solved.

    this is all great, but Mexico had already agreed to this, what Trump wanted them to do was declare themselves a safe Country... but they refused that, after the backlash from his own party Trump dropped that and agreed to what Mexico had already agreed too

    now, I will give Trump credit for trying to get more... but he did fail in that regard

    so time will tell, if this means no 'wall of Trump' across the entire border, I am all for it

    Groan...I’m sure Mexico is going to stop the hordes with cameras and technology. A wall is an effective time proven barrier to stop people from going where you don’t want them to go, just like the walls in your house. Pelosi’s house is protected by a wall, so is Obama’s.

    Mexico is now a designated asylum country.

    One of the principles in asylum is its always better/preferable for the asylum seekers to be relocated to place that is first close geographically, and also close culturally.

    These central American illegals and the others who sneak in (like from congo) would be denied asylum claims if they did not seek them first in (soon) Guatemala, and then Mexico.

    As I understand it, Mexican asylum seekers must first seek asylum in central America.

    This bypasses tent cities, keeps women and children safer, and prevents the border and more importantly America from being over run with third world asylum seekers.

    "Mexico is now a designated asylum country."

    I heard they did not agree to that, will wait for more info, if Trump got that, then it woudl be a success, a huge win for Trump

    as that would mean if they pass through Mexico before the USA, they have to apply for asylum from Mexico or they are auto denied from the USA

    looks like it may not be all that, this is like the North Korea deal sounds like

    https://www.vox.com/2019/6/15/18680129/us-mexico-immigration-deal-release-trump-tariff

    "The text of the letter reveals a commitment to begin discussions for a future agreement — essentially making it an agreement to negotiate an agreement — and is, as many expected, not a “deal.” It does, however, point to a future deal that could contain a win for Trump."

    little too soon to put up that "Mission Accomplished" flag just yet

    Everything about this is a huge win.

    Internationally, here's what the world knows-

    Trumps the new boss.

    He was recently cleared from political smears.

    His opposition is inept-hence

    He's successful at home.

    He's successful abroad.

    He's a real maverick.

    Poland is naming a military base after Trump.

    Israel is naming a town after Trump.

    And while sipping Tea with the Queen of England, he's making the commie President of Mexico get to it.

    Figure it out.

    When the left argues that foreign countries don’t like us it’s because we make them pay their fair share (and we know how big the left is on that) plus Trump has told them that they have to deal with their own uneducated, low IQ losers, not us.

    Now maybe if those low IQ countries lowered the standards to pass an exit exam and had some sort of affirmative action plan in place they’d be filled with highly educated and intellectually elite people who could change their countries from not being shitholes.

    first link that came up, if you have a better one, feel free to share

    I will hold off with the "Mission Accomplished" until I see it verified that Mexico declared themselves a designated asylum country.. as at this point, it's not looking like it

    No. I saw it on this board that a Mexican quit his job because that country did.

    Nah. CNN isn't credible, and theres no chance Trump would have been able to keep his mouth shut on an agreed upon deal.

    I agree, if there really was a deal, Trump would of released it, I am thinking it's a deal to make a deal like the one in North Korea is more likely true

    I do not think Mexico has agreed to be a designated asylum country.... but time will tell.. like I said, if they have, it's a huge win for Trump, I just wont believe it till I see it

    and of course fox news woudl have a article on their website about it by now
