Proof that Mexico is Holding Up Their End of the Deal

When the US struck a deal with Mexico earlier this year as a way to improve the conditions at the two nations’ borders, the Trump administration and America as a whole were hopeful that it would work. However, many have been concerned that Mexico may not hold to their end of the bargain as well since it appeared they were hesitant to even begin negotiations, let alone compromise on much of anything.

However, the country to the south of us has proved those concerns ill-founded and continues to meet out punishment for those who are illegally trying to enter the US.

Their most recent action outside of the southern Mexican city of Tapachula shows this.

This week a caravan of about 2000 migrants coming from the Caribbean, Central America, and Africa set out on foot from the city, headed towards the north and the US. However, they didn’t get too far before Mexican National Guardsmen, and federal police greeted them and would not allow them to continue on.

About 20 miles outside of the city, the highway they were traveling on became blocked on both sides by Mexican authorities clad in helmets and tactical vests. Most of the migrants were able to be detained and then placed on buses to take them back south to Tapachula and the Guatemalan border. Some had to be chased down and forcibly forced back, while others agreed to walk back of their volition.

Acting commissioner of customs and Border Protection Mark Morgan tweeted Sunday, “Mexico’s enhanced border security efforts along their southern border continue to have a dramatic impact on this regional crisis. I just returned from Mexico where we had collaborative discussions on stemming the flow of illegal migration throughout the region.”

In years past, Tapachula, a city just north of Mexico’s border with Guatemala, has been known as a center of immigration for those seeking to end up in the US or Canada. There, thousands have received transit visas that allow them to travel throughout Mexico and make their way to the US.

However, as part of the deal struck between the US, Mexico has agreed to limit the number of these transit visas that are issued. Thousands of migrants can be found within Tapachula on a daily basis waiting for these visas or other official Mexican documents from the government.

After waiting for a seemingly endless amount of time or being denied their visas, migrants are encouraged to head back south, where they came from. However, many choose to illegally continue north, trying to reach the US. this leads to clashes between impatient and restless migrants and the Mexican authorities charged with keeping them from traveling northward.

Deploying National Guardsmen for this task is not the only effort Mexico has taken to help the US with the immigration crisis. After being threatened by the Trump administration with hefty tariffs on their US exports, the Mexican government agreed to also help keep thousands of migrant asylum seekers in their country rather than pushing them through into the overcrowded immigration process on US soil.

The Remain in Mexico policy requires those seeking asylum to just that. They are to remain in Mexico until their scheduled adjudicated court date in the US immigration courts where they receive their official government papers or are selected to be deported. That is unless they meet certain exceptions.

The new policy has lessened the strain on detainment centers and ICE facilities throughout the south, as many migrants that would be held for months a time waiting for their court date are now no longer on American soil.

This means that money spent on their basic needs and care can be diverted to other areas of the immigration process where funding is lacking, such as the care of unaccompanied migrant children.

No, the system isn’t perfect, and it most certainly has some flaws that need to be addressed. However, the situation as a whole is getting better for both Mexico and the US, thanks to the combined efforts of their governments working together towards a common goal.

  10. Nice post. I learn something totally new and challenging on websites I stumbleupon everyday.

    It will always be helpful to read content
    from other authors and practice something from other web sites.

  11. Everything you describe IS communism. The NWO is a communist philosophy, and the vast majority of the world’s population will be of the “worker“ class, while the party elites will be given preferential treatment. That’s the real meaning of wealth redistribution, and it’s why the lunatics on the left -from AOC to Sanders to Clinton to Pelosi – all want power. They know that when the NWO finally takes hold, they’ll be spared the hell that they’re imposing on the rest of society. And they’ll see to it that those of us on the right who have the audacity to speak the truth permanently disappear from their “utopia”. Again, the leftist Democrats ARE communists – I don’t see how you can seriously argue otherwise.

  12. good thank god for trump in 2020 stop the communist democrats

    However….our Big PROBLEM IS/ARE the democRATs in WASH,DC… They just want POWER, at all Cost.. they ALL get on MAFIOSO Hillary….BUT !!! – she COULD NOT WIN…!!!!!

  14. Actually, they are coming, BECAUSE “SOROS” is Up-Rooting these poor, UNEDUCATED people to be the NEXT VOTERS’ for The democRATs!!!!!
    Soros gave each ILLEGAL-migrant $3000. Which the COYOTY’s TAKE, in return to Get them to OUR BORDER!!!!
    GET SOROS “Out of the picture” and things will change…the same SOROS….whose grandson is married to Chelsea, daughter of hildaBAG…
    Also, SOROS is the “HENCHMAN” for the 6-8 Richest fsmilies, who want to DECIDE a ‘ll of OUR EXISTENCE..!!!!!

  15. The Dems are NOT interested in “Communism”. Rather they are being financed by Mr. George Soros. He started buying his “European Union” in 1972, is still working on it today”. All part of his “New World Order”. His goals are plainly stated on his “Open Borders Foundation” website. “No Governments, Borders, or Religions, with the ‘Elite Billionaires’ in total control”.
    How ya like to live in “His world”? The dems want open borders so they can end up in control of the country. Pelosi, Hillary, and the rest all want to be in “Positions of Power” in his “New World Order”, plain and simple. Read about it, please?

  16. Hear, hear and cheers to Mexico!

  17. Unaccompanied minors should immediately be put on a bus and returned to Tapachula. There are already too many needy children in this country. Let’s take care of our own first.

  18. I don’t understand why our President has to answer to Pelosi. In the first place. So is he going to answer to her for any calls he makes. How can a President any President run a country now.
    Pelosi is a traitor and just eating time ..Our Preside t has a lot more vital affairs to take care of and wasting time with that d worthless do nothing demi rat

  19. FINALLY, someone, somewhere , actually doing something to stop these ILLEGALS, who now come to game the system………………

  20. The party is over – NO more free food, housing, medical, education. NO SKILLS – therefore THEY are UNNECESSARY.
    We have unemployment NOT full employment. Our seniors & military personnel MUST be respected
    as they paid into the system, whereas these people are unwelcome diseased parasites, who willfully violate the law,
    which makes them criminals, trespassers who can be shot on sight.
    kNOw mORe.

  21. While the U.S. is a sovereign country, we are being attacked from within by the traitors to this country, who go be the name or DEMOCRATS, This EVIL group needs to be disbanded and imprisoned, as they care not for this country, only for the votes the criminal migrants will give them.

  22. America needs to clean it’s own back yard, first with No thanks to the anti-American democrats and their tool for it the bought out biased medias propaganda LIES!

  23. I find myself curious as to the following. Is the U.S., a sovereign nation entitled to control it’s borders, including who enters, on what basis, and for how long or is this not the case? Anyone who wishes should feel free to respond.


  25. that’s exactly what needs to be done all the time, I’d call it the catapult move in and out the same day…

  26. Yes, Mexico cannot afford migrants either; but they did offer a caravan migrant group sanctuary sometime back. Nope the group nixed staying; they wanted complete welfare in the U.S.

  27. This is beneficial for Mexico too. They cannot afford to care for these people either.

  28. They are coming only for charity because that is what the Communist party has convinced them of, cast your votes for us and you will never have to work another day in your life.

  29. I want to see that televised by Fox news or better yet Breitbart, was this actually reported by a genuine (i.e) reliable news source or did the writer of this article merely take the word of government officials who in turn believed what they were being told by the Mexican government?

  30. WE do not have money or jobs for them

  31. The fact that Mexico is holding up their part of the bargain is great. Hopefully it’s good for them also.
