Maxine Waters is nothing if not consistent. Consistently wrong that is. Waters claimed that Trump was bluffing on tariffs and that his plan would never work.
Just less than 24 hours, President Trump and Mexico announced an agreement that included the freezing of 26 accounts used to finance the caravans (awaiting charges), the arrest of two open border advocates working for George Soros, the Mexican government sending 6,000 troops to the border with Guatemala and the purchase of large quantities of agricultural products from the United States.
And even with all those concessions, Nancy Pelosi and Chuck U Schumer are claiming that the US got a bad deal. Hilarious coming from the party of border status quo.
Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA) is spiking the political football after wrongly predicting how President Trump’s tariff threats against Mexico would pan out.
Trump announced the agreement Friday evening.
“I am pleased to inform you that The United States of America has reached a signed agreement with Mexico,” Trump tweeted Friday. “The Tariffs scheduled to be implemented by the U.S. on Monday, against Mexico, are hereby indefinitely suspended.”
“Mexico, in turn, has agreed to take strong measures to stem the tide of Migration through Mexico, and to our Southern Border,” he continued. “This is being done to greatly reduce, or eliminate, Illegal Immigration coming from Mexico and into the United States.”
The agreement should reduce the number of illegals pouring through the southern border, at least in part. The agreement effectively ends catch-and-release. Instead, migrants will be returned to Mexico while they wait out their asylum claims, which should in effect discourage migrants from illegally entering the United States with children.
The State Department said in a joint declaration:
In response, Mexico will authorize the entrance of all of those individuals for humanitarian reasons, in compliance with its international obligations, while they await the adjudication of their asylum claims. Mexico will also offer jobs, healthcare, and education according to its principles.
