The Mexican government said on Tuesday that in order to prevent US President Trump from threatening tariffs, Mexico has adopted “unprecedented” measures to reduce foreign immigrants. The number of foreigners expelled in June increased by 33% from the previous month.
Statistics from the Mexican Immigration Service show that the number of immigrants deported in June was 21,912, more than the 1,650,7 in May.
Trump threatened Mexico in May this year. If no more measures are taken to slow the Central American immigrants crossing the US-Mexico border, the United States will impose tariffs on Mexican goods.
After a week of negotiations, the two sides reached an agreement on June 7.According to the agreement, Mexico agreed to send thousands of National Guard personnel to guard the border, while Mexico extended the withdrawal of asylum seekers policy when processing applications for asylum seekers in the United States.The so-called “Leave in Mexico” policy has so far sent nearly 17,000 immigrants back to Mexico.
