Trump announced today that the Mexican 5% tariff scheduled for 6/10 has been postponed or halted due to Mexican agreements. (To be announced by State Dept.) The last I read of what some of their concession proposals would be, sending their National Guard to protect their own southern border, a change in their asylum laws which would make Mexico responsible for determining their need for asylum status and allow us to immediately deport anyone illegally crossing our border since asylum would be Mexico's responsibility. How much of this has actually been agreed to needs spelling out by our people.
I also read supposed breaking news that ICE is gearing up for mass deportations of people released who did not show up for their hearings where asylum was denied.
Another new thing being applied to those showing up with children is DNA testing. Reports indicate the about 30% of the children are not related to the adult they are with. Children are being recycled, borrowed, etc. (not to mention possibly kidnapped).
