Trump,Mexico accord on migrants


The US President, Mr. Donald Trump, says he has suspended plans to impose tariffs on Mexico, saying the  country 'has agreed to take strong measures' to check the flow of Central American migrants into the United States.

'I am pleased to inform you that The US has reached a signed agreement with Mexico,' Mr.  Trump tweeted.'Tariffs scheduled to be implemented by the US on Monday, against Mexico, are hereby indefinitely suspended.'

He said Mexico has agreed to work to 'stem the tide of migration through Mexico, and to our Southern Border' and said those steps would 'greatly reduce, or eliminate, Illegal Immigration coming from Mexico and into the US.'

According to a 'US-Mexico Joint Declaration'  the US said it will work to greatly expand a program that returns asylum-seekers who cross the southern border while their claims are adjudicated.
