Mexico tightens southern border security as another day passes with no tariff deal

Under pressure from Trump, Mexico has launched a crackdown on the Guatemala border, arresting activists and holding migrants

The one area I support Trump on is his stance on illegal economic migration. It is in the US’s right and the righ to every nation state to protect its borders and this threat of tariffs seems to be having the desired effect on the Mexican authorities. There are legal channels set up for migration – these need to be adhered to.
