U.S., Mexico resume talks as tariffs loom

Negotiators on Friday resumed talks in Washington aimed at averting US tariffs on Mexico in a raging dispute over illegal migration… President Donald Trump has threatened to impose 5% tariffs on Mexico - starting on Monday - if it does not stop the flow of migrants from Central America heading for the U.S.… With the deadline looming … Mexican Foreign Minister Marcelo Ebrard was meeting for a third day with officials at the State Dept… … Pence SOT: "We want them to do more…" Vice President Mike Pence on Thursday said Mexico would have to take quote "decisive action" … Amid the last ditch talks… Some signs of progress… Mexico has offered to send up to 6,000 thousand of its national guard troops to its southern border with Guatemala to block migrants heading for the U.S. Witnesses said Mexican soldiers and police on Wednesday had already begun stopping hundreds of migrants after they crossed the border from Guatemala.

It's not clear whether the offer to send troops would be enough for Trump to lift his tariff threat, which he said would ratchet up to 25 percent by the fall.

The potential tariffs have rattled global financial markets and drawn fire from many of Trump's fellow Republicans, who are concerned about the impact it could have on U.S. businesses and consumers.

According to the Washington Post, the deal with Mexico could include a plan to overhaul asylum rules across the region by requiring Central Americans to seek refuge in the first foreign country they set foot on, making it easier for the U.S. to deport asylum seekers.

In May, monthly arrests at the U.S. border reached levels not seen in over a decade, with the U.S. Customs and Border Protection reporting nearly 133,000 arrests.
