The United States maintained the threat of tariffs on Mexican goods until Friday night, less than three days before a 5 percent levy was poised to hit incoming products from south of the border. It seems the pressure worked, with the U.S. and Mexico signing a deal late Friday to prevent both tariffs and the northward flow of illegal migrants from Central America.

Automakers are no doubt breathing a sigh of relief.

Per usual, U.S. President Donald Trump signalled the deal via Twitter, writing, “I am pleased to inform you that The United States of America has reached a signed agreement with Mexico. The Tariffs scheduled to be implemented by the U.S. on Monday, against Mexico, are hereby indefinitely suspended.”

The deal came after reports emerged Thursday of a buildup of Mexican police and military forces along the country’s southern border, with Trump tweeting Friday night that 6,000 troops were now in place. Both sides engaged in three days of talks before reaching the agreement.

From the U.S. State Department:

Mexico will take unprecedented steps to increase enforcement to curb irregular migration, to include the deployment of its National Guard throughout Mexico, giving priority to its southern border. Mexico is also taking decisive action to dismantle human smuggling and trafficking organizations as well as their illicit financial and transportation networks. Additionally, the United States and Mexico commit to strengthen bilateral cooperation, including information sharing and coordinated actions to better protect and secure our common border.

Had Mexico told the U.S. to shove it, the escalating tariff (slated to hit 25 percent by October) would have proved disastrous to several industries, topmost being produce and automobile producers. As reported by Bloomberg, LMC Automotive data shows 15 percent of vehicles sold in the U.S. originate in lower-cost Mexican factories. The potential impact to domestic automakers would be vast, with Deutsche Bank estimating General Motors, the most involved of the three, would face a $6.3 billion hit had the tariff grown to 25 percent.

Consumers in the U.S. stood to face a steep rise in shelf and sticker prices had the tariff gone through. There’s a reason why Detroit Three automakers mainly keep their biggest money makers in American factories. (Well, many reasons.)

Early Saturday Trump again returned to Twitter to confirm, in all caps, something reported late this week — that in exchange for the dropping of tariffs, Mexico would “immediately begin buying large quantities of agricultural product” from the U.S.

Should Mexico’s efforts prove less than ideal at stemming the migrant flow, the State Department says both sides will “take further actions,” having agreed to continue discussions “on the terms of additional understandings.”

        It turns out that this was what Mexico had agreed to MONTHS ago. The tariff threat got him nothing additional.

        His supporters will never know this. It’s all a reality-show.

          The deal with Mexico that President Donald Trump said Friday would avert his impending tariffs mostly contains actions that Mexico had agreed to months ago, The New York Times reported Saturday.

          Among the items included in the agreement was a promise to deploy Mexico’s National Guard throughout the country and its southern border — but officials from both countries say the Mexican government had already vowed to do so in March, according to The Times.

          Another part of the deal was to expand Mexico’s cooperation with a Trump administration effort to force asylum-seekers to wait in Mexico while their cases move through the US immigration court system. But Mexico had actually agreed to the arrangement in December, The Times reported.

    Shortly before tariffs were announced, the Mexican government cut their enforcement budget by 20%. The very next day after the tariff plan was announced, a Mexican delegation was on the way to DC. We’ll see whether their promises made are promises kept. #OrangeManNotSoBadAfterAll

        Yeah, it remains to be seen if the Mexican government ACTUALLY impedes the flow of illegal aliens to the southern border of the US.

        In New Mexico, the cities of Las Cruces and Deming have sounded the alarm bells because the CBP just drop busloads of illegal aliens in the middle of those towns to fend for themselves. That’s what they get for New Mexico being a Sanctuary State and what is brilliant is that President Trump is sending many of the illegal aliens to exactly those sanctuary states. Next, California!!!

        I’m no longer a resident of New Mexico and no longer have to pay taxes there. So I say, send those illegal aliens to Sanctuary States!!!

        GO TRUMP!

          I remain intrigued as to why residents of a country built on illegal immigration (somebody asked the original inhabitants, did they?)become so exercised by a few more, especially considering that the number of foreign born residents, be they legal or not, is not unusually high. I live in a place where the percentage of foreign born residents is rather higher and people aren’t jumping up and down about it. To add to that many (if not most) of the illegal immigrants in the US came in legally and overstayed their visas and so all the border guards and big, beautiful walls in the world wouldn’t have stopped them. But never mind that. There are about 11m illegals in the US. What do you think are the chances of your beloved Drumpf throwing them out? Precisely nil, of course. Your economy needs them. Who’s going to do all these menial jobs the Americans don’t want to do? You expect the Americans to flip their own burgers or cut their own grass?

            This country was built on legal immigration. My grandparents came here in the 1890’s thru Ellis Island and had to have JOBS guaranteed and a signed sponsor or else they were shipped back.

            This illegal crap is ruining this country. Try going to China or Russia without sponsorship and see what happens to you (even Canada, for that matter).

Please name the “country” the alleged “illegals” immigrated to in 1492?

            “become so exercised by a few more, especially considering that the number of foreign born residents, be they legal or not, is not unusually high.”

            FALSE: From the US Government

            “Since 1970, the foreign-born population has continued to increase in size and as a percent of the total population…About 1 in 4 children under 18 in families have at least one foreign-born parent.”

            Ce he sin, America wants LEGAL immigrants. America NEEDS LEGAL immigrants. We don’t have enough worker bees to fill all the jobs.

            The number of people LEGALLY coming to America is HUGE, more than any other country on this planet. And still there are not enough of them to fill all the job vacancies.

            It’s the ILLEGAL ALIENS who come into America without permission or papers, and those who overstay their welcome, who are the problem.

            Every time I go to Old Mexico for an extended stay, or to Canada, or to ANY other country I visit for any length of time, I have to register my Passport with the local police, who stamp it.

            I was stationed in Germany for eight years and after the first four years I had to register every year, even under the Status of Forces Agreement.

            And foreign military forces stationed in the US for training have to do the same for the duration of their stay.

            America has the most lax immigration policy, so illegal aliens are just taking advantage of that. And the Coyotes make a lot of money on the illegals and drugs they smuggle into the US.

            With the new agreement with Mexico, I have no doubt that more illegal aliens will be sent back to Mexico from the US for holding while their asylum petition is being processed.

            Better to hold them in Old Mexico than in New Mexico…..

            Our honorable and seemed president in a few paragraphs . . . . . .

            A demagogue /ˈdɛməɡɒɡ/ (from Greek δημαγωγός, a popular leader, a leader of a mob, from δῆμος, people, populace, the commons + ἀγωγός leading, leader)[1] or rabble-rouser[2][3] is a leader who gains popularity in a democracy by exploiting prejudice and ignorance among the common people, whipping up the passions of the crowd and shutting down reasoned deliberation.[1][4] Demagogues overturn established norms of political conduct, or promise or threaten to do so.[5]

            Historian Reinhard Luthin defined demagogue thus: “What is a demagogue? He is a politician skilled in oratory, flattery and invective; evasive in discussing vital issues; promising everything to everybody; appealing to the passions rather than the reason of the public; and arousing racial, religious, and class prejudices—a man whose lust for power without recourse to principle leads him to seek to become a master of the masses. He has for centuries practiced his profession of ‘man of the people’. He is a product of a political tradition nearly as old as western civilization itself.”[6]

            Demagogues have appeared in democracies since ancient Athens. They exploit a fundamental weakness in democracy: because ultimate power is held by the people, it is possible for the people to give that power to someone who appeals to the lowest common denominator of a large segment of the population.[7] Demagogues usually advocate immediate, forceful action to address a national crisis while accusing moderate and thoughtful opponents of weakness or disloyalty. Once elected to high executive office, demagogues typically unravel constitutional limits on executive power and attempt to convert their democracy to dictatorship.

            You’d have to ask the people who were here first, but colonists killed most of them and herded the remainder onto reservations.

            Or don’t those people matter because they weren’t white Europeans?

            Ce he sin

            Dear oh dear. It seems that whatever history is taught in American schools is limited to a particular viewpoint and to a certain extent you can be forgiven for lack of knowledge of your own history. To educate you, European immigrants started arriving in what’s now the US in the 16th century. They found the place already populated. Such of the original occupants who objected to these illegal immigrants (well, they weren’t invited, were they?) were soon marginalised and deported to unattractive places if they were lucky and exterminated if they weren’t. This continued right into the 19th century when the immigrants decided it was their manifest destiny to extend themselves westwards. As the inhabitants weren’t happy about this they resisted which resulted in another round of marginalisation and extermination, taking in the planned wipeout of the buffalo population on which they depended with the specific intention of starving them into submission. But that was all fine. The new illegal immigrants brought their laws with them so they were able to legalise all this after the event. And you still think America wasn’t built on illegal immigration?

          America doesn’t need these immigrants. We need worker bees – yes. So give them a work contract here and send them back when its over. This way we can regulate the number of incomers. The employer who needs them should fill up visa request, etc.

            slavuta, America NEEDS LEGAL immigrants, if for nothing else than to perform work in America and pay taxes to the US Treasury.

            Americans tend to quit working when they secure a steady and reliable stream of income, like when Police Officers retire after 20 years, or Firefighters, or Military people, or so many other professions like lawyers and doctors that offer “early retirement.”

            In my travels to different places, and my extended stays in Ensenada, BC, Old Mexico, I am amazed at the number of ex-pats Americans who live year’round at those locations (because they can.)

            One of my fellow Aircrew members I flew with in Viet Nam married a Filipino girl and settled in the Philippines after he retired from the USAF. And he lives there like royalty on a retired income that doesn’t even pay the rent in the US.

            Ditto with all the Americans living in Central and South America, the Caribbean, et al. The US dollar goes a long way, especially in retirement and when supplemented with Social Security and other retirement income like dividend income.

      It would be resolved in a few weeks. Cut off benefits. Prosecute thieves in the government who fund illegal immigration. Deploy the military against NGOs that fund the invasion. We don’t need to deport anyone that isn’t in the justice system. We just need to stop stealing taxpayer money so illegals can send all their earned income home via Carlos Slim’s remittance network, which funds our fake news agencies. They’ll either go home on their own or start spending the money they earn in the US. Either way, we’ll be better off as a country.

        “..the money they earn…”

        You bring up some great points, but the statement above is glossed by everyone, but is at the root of the evil.

        For every illegal alien deported, how many souls come north illegally to accept his or her job? Eight? Ten? Despite US laws, the jobs they get aren’t necessarily illegal, but most replacement illegals will find a job somewhere, or create a business, like mowing lawns, selling whatever, etc.

        A tiny percentage will turn to crime, or simply drive drunk, and the only reason its worth mentioning is we brought it upon ourselves. It’s part of the “deal” so I don’t want to hear any sniveling.

        If there were no jobs to be had by not legal residents, would they come at all? Would they sneak in just to visit The Grand Canyon? Would they sneak in the whole family to the US for a fun filled day at Disneyland? Wouldn’t they have to sneak into the park too?

        I don’t think they love the USA as much as we think they do. Less so if they had to pack in their own money earned in Central America, Mexico, etc.

        So why is there such a GIGANTIC disconnect? Of course politicians and news outlets won’t bring up the topic of “the money they earn”? Where it’s sent is besides the fact.
        Do they think we can’t think for ourselves? I guess we can’t.

        So the circus continues…

          FALSE: Making up your own stats on the internet doesn’t make the lie true.

          “Of the 45,493 foreign-born inmates in the federal prison system made up of 188,658 inmates, the Justice Department said 3,939 are U.S. citizens.” So 22% is a tiny percentage? Math much?

            Maybe reading the article and pay attention to where the author breaks out the number foreign born who are citizens and those who are not.

            The percentage of illegals who commit at least 1 crime is 100% since they entered country illegally.

    Sooner or later, Trump’s opponents, and even some allies, are going to realize Trump knows how to negotiate. Even Senate Republicans thought the Mexico tariff was a bad idea and signaled their opposition. Now they see that he’s not in favor of tariffs everywhere, but is using them as negotiating chips.

    The auto industry isn’t out of the woods yet. Trump dropped pressure on the Eurozone due to other things cropping up – but he’ll get back to it, to renegotiate trade with Europe.

    China has been a tough nut, but they’re more hurt than the US in the long run, and auto is part of it. China fining the Ford-Changan partnership is going to chill foreign investment in Chinese auto, and induce automakers to build cars elsewhere.

    The bottom line is Trump is trying to renegotiate trade deals, and he’s using tariffs because it’s one of the few measures he can employ without needing congressional action.

      President Trump has done terrific things for a great number of tax-paying, working Americans. There are many more job vacancies than there are unemployed workers in America.

      Employment participation is way up because there are millions MORE people working today than at any time in the history of the US of A. And that’s not even counting the underground economy that employs at least 11 million illegal aliens in America. Trying to get a ballpark number on that is like herding millions of feral cats.

      But the Anti-Right Anti White Ne’er Trumper ‘crat coalition of the Left is still reeling from the Hilary loss in 2016 that no matter what great stuff Trump accomplishes or achieves for American citizens, the ‘crats will continue to try to undo the election results of 2016.

      Like the previous guy in office, President Trump also has a phone and a pen, and he should use it more often, especially AFTER he gets re-elected to FOUR MORE YEARS!

          I’ve seen that 77,000 vote figure bandied around quite a bit, but the really telling figure from those three states is the shift from those who previously voted for Obama and went for Trump. The numbers are especially staggering when you look at white, working class voters. There’s some good footage from CNN I think showing that shift in returns from PA on the night of the election.

          I was an early Trump supporter because I thought he would fight, and I wasn’t in the mood for another McCain or Romney style defeat. I’ve been extremely pleased with how it’s turned out, and have yet to meet a single Trump voter who regrets their choice.

With Trump corporations started to hire and right now income is 10K more than under Obama at same time. At the end of Obama, corporations started to hire a bit better because they knew that he is done and whoever comes will be better.

        “FOUR MORE YEARS!” — You may have no more respect for the U.S. Constitution and the rule of law (or simple decency) than Donald Trump, but it’s a fact that interfering with a federal investigation, whether it’s successful or just an attempt, is a felony, a federal crime. His rotating team of lawyers has usually been able to bully into submission those he’s ripped-off for decades. Congress and the SDNY prosecutors are not as likely to be scared-off. He has many adoring followers (as did Al Capone, and yes, Adolf), and still, he belongs in jail.

        Shel,

        Mexico may have agreed to it months ago but it’s clear they were not holding up there end, talk of further lessening their enforcement was clearly not signaling their intentions of holding up their end of the deal. All it took was Trump to threaten Tariffs on them and from the looks of it they may have changed their mind. Only the future will tell if they are truly committed in upholding their end of the deal.

        Obviously Trump made the right move unlike the past several Presidents that would have called it job done and ignored Mexico’s inaction.

Whether they actually mean to take the issue serious is yet to be seen. Clearly this was Mexico’s fault despite your TDS kicking in. And again, Mexico had made it clear it was going to weaken enforcement of key areas up and until this current deal was struck, what in the world makes you think this proposal is anything close to what was originally brought to the table. Why was Mexico not able to stem the flow of terrorists in the last deal if it was so good?

    Mexico should demand that the US ends its demand for narcotics. Our addicts are causing a tremendous amount of cost and suffering in Mexico.

    I’m puzzled as to why this blurb about tariffs and Mexico has a picture of Jeep Renegades that are manufactured in Italy?

    @Ol Shel–Nailed it. Our drug problem has created a lot of cost and suffering not just in the US but in Mexico. The US is not entirely blameless.

    Instead of trying to round up 11 million people who seem to have found paying jobs here, try targeting the companies and individuals who employ them. As long as there is an economic benefit to sneaking into a place, people will do it.

    Somehow I doubt we have the stomach to toss execs from our major food companies into the clink. We also like nice lawns and don’t like wiping our own kids behinds, so a true roundup of the evil doers could get personal in short order.

    As for the drugs…we are the most stoned, unhappy and lazy country on earth. A rich market like this WILL be served.

      I have no problem agreeing to serious jail time and large fines for anyone knowingly hiring an illegal alien.

        ^This…

        Hummer and I agree for once.

        Enforce the laws you have (whether where talking about illegal aliens or guns or any other controversial topic.)

        Whether you agree or disagree with the laws I have always agree with what Abraham Lincoln said: The best way to get a bad law repealed is to enforce it strictly.

        Can’t know much about the laws that you have if they’re not enforced.

        We already have largest jail population in the world. Why not hang few guys on the tree? Rest will see and fear.

      You understand the same people that actively want illegals over here and no border enforcement also want to protect the companies that hire them, right?

      Of course we should go after businesses that hire them, it would be easy and stop it dead. But the elites want their slave labor.

    I’ve been hanging around this site since the Farago days. Articles like this are nothing more than click-bait. Many of the replies appear to be written by 7th grade blowhards. You should be ashamed of yourselves. Not that anyone will miss me, but if this continues I’m out.

    I’m still trying to figure out why people were angry at this brilliant move.

    I’m old enough to remember when economic pressure was the “smart” way to get things done. I guess we should go back to bloody wars.

    There’s a lot of Americans that just want that actively want this country destroyed because of its supposed past sins. Right now we’re watching one side root for China and actively wanting more illegal aliens from Mexico. hell of a platform.

      “I’m old enough to remember when economic pressure was the “smart” way to get things done.”

      The problem is, at least in the case with China, is that you’re supposed to apply the economic pressure to the other guy, not yourself.

      Civil war will fix all this. I am glad liberals already concentrated in their cities, and disarmed along the way. All we have to do, load them into cargo ships and ship to China

        Lets not advocate for a civil war and the mass relocation of Americans that have a particular political belief. I mean, you can do it elsewhere, but please don’t do it here.

          The point is, there were many conflicts considered “unthinkable”. And yet they have occurred. It will be a great eye opener to all Americans that people here can kill each other for their cause. And the liberals making a big push exactly toward that. Instead of uniting people around something “american”, they come forward with these foreign ideologies. In fact, American achievements all thanks to the fact that we were different. A little wild, a little rough. And hard working. Look at Spain. These people don’t work much, don’t have much. Can you imagine yourself be done with work early afternoon and siesta all the time? Where is John Taurus who works on Memorial day?

    Good to know the Mexican National Guard will succeed in securing their southern border, when we are seemingly unable to do the same.

      Our border is over 1600mi long and mostly open space. Mexico is around 300mi and mostly impossible terrain. + these dudes simply walked over the roads as far as I understand. And someone was paying for that trip too. Don’t be naive – this is well organized provocation against Trump

    Came to see the expected crapshot commentary on the article, from the usual suspects.

    Wasn’t disappointed.
