Trump’s immigration deal with Mexico is working
The Democrats have underestimated President Trump yet again. His bilateral immigration deal with Mexico is already proving to be far more effective than his critics had predicted.
With Democrats in Congress still refusing to provide the necessary resources for border security despite the massive surge in illegal immigration that has taken place in recent months, Trump turned to Mexico as an unlikely partner to help get the humanitarian and national security crisis under control.
Predictably, Trump’s critics lambasted the idea from the outset. First, they insisted that his threat to impose across-the-board tariffs on Mexican goods would never lead to an agreement. Then, after Mexico quickly acceded to a deal before the tariffs could take effect, liberals changed course and argued that the actions Mexico had committed to take, such as deploying thousands of their National Guard troops to assist with immigration enforcement and requiring migrants to stay in Mexico while their asylum claims are processed by American authorities, would have no impact on illegal immigration into the U.S.
“I think the president has completely overblown what he purports to have achieved,” Democratic presidential candidate Beto O’Rourke said at the time. “These are agreements that Mexico had already made and, in some cases, months ago.”
Some even argued that the bilateral immigration deal with Mexico was a pipe dream to begin with. They predicted that Trump’s effort to pressure our southern neighbor with tariffs would backfire.
“President Trump has a habit of talking tough and then retreating, because his policies often can’t be implemented or don’t make sense,” Sen. Chuck Schumer said in early June. He was implying that there would be no immigration deal with Mexico because Donald Trump’s tariffs were an empty threat.
