    Donald Trump’s Mexico Deal: Democrats Sad, Media Mope

    Donald Trump’s Mexico Deal: Democrats Sad, Media Mope

    June 8, 2019

    Most Democrats and pro-migration advocates stayed silent after President Donald Trump announced he had gotten the reluctant Mexican government to agree to keep all migrants in Mexico until their U.S. court hearings.

    The “Remain in Mexico” deal allows Mexico to say it did not give in to Trump’s push for a “safe third country” deal. But it gives Trump’s border agencies a legal way to ignore the establishment’s catch and release policies, which allow economic migrants to get U.S. jobs when they merely carry a child across the border and ask for asylum.

    Under the deal, migrants who arrive at the border will have to remain in Mexico until their court dates. The means they cannot get into the United States, cannot get U.S. wages, and cannot repay smuggling debts to the cartels.

    House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s Twitter account was silent following the deal, but Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer poured sarcasm all over the deal:
    Trump won his deal June 7, two days after Schumer predicted Trump was bluffing:

    Trump’s win gives him more leverage in the back-and-forth negotiations with Democrats and business over U.S. economic and immigration policies — and demonstrates the value of his tariff threat amid complaints from Democrats, establishment Republicans, the media, and nearly all of the Washington, DC, establishment.

    GOP Sen. Marco Rubio acknowledged Trump’s win and focused attention on the media’s sour reaction:

    Rubio scoffed at coverage by Politico, saying, “A good example of how hard it will be for some in media to be fair in covering deal with #Mexico This [Politico] story opens with ‘Trump dropped his unpopular plan to impose tariffs after deal was reached’ as if the tariffs had nothing to do with getting the deal.”

    Politicos headline hid the deal and portrayed Trump as escaping a trap he set for himself:

    Trump drops tariff threat on Mexico after migration deal reached

    The move avoids a possible confrontation with Congress over the tariffs, which experts have warned could drastically damage the U.S. economy.

    s first
    paragraph also downplayed the win:

    President Donald Trump on Friday dropped his unpopular plan to impose tariffs on hundreds of billion of dollars of goods from Mexico after the two countries reached a deal to stem the flow of Central American migrants entering the United States.

    The Washington Post described Trump’s decision to withhold tariffs as a win for Mexico while burying Mexico’s promise to host migrants before their court dates. This “Remain in Mexico” promise likely gives border officers to the enforced catch and release practice, which allows migrants to walk through the border wall if they carry a child and ask for asylum. The Posts article began:

    President Trump announced Friday night that a deal was in place that would avert threatened tariffs on Mexican imports in exchange for Mexico taking “strong measures” to curb the influx of Central American migrants at the U.S. southern border.

    The New York Times followed the same downbeat formula, with a front-page display saying:

    Trump Calls Off Plan to Impose Tariffs on Mexico After Reaching Deal on Migrants

    President Trump said that the United States and Mexico had reached an agreement to reduce the flow of migrants to the southwestern border.
    The outcome prevents a trade war that experts had warned could have been an economic catastrophe on both sides of the border.

    The Hill also downplayed the deal and suggested Mexico won the day:

    President Trump said Friday evening he would drop plans to impose sweeping tariffs on Mexico after the United States’ southern neighbor agreed to take new steps to crack down on illegal migration.

    The decision marks a complete change from late last week, when Trump threatened to impose tariffs on all Mexican goods out of frustration with the rising number of migrants crossing the U.S. southern border.
    It is also a victory for the government of Mexican President Andrés Manuel López Obrador, whose representatives spent all week in Washington trying to persuade the Trump administration to drop the tariff plan.

    The major media networks buried the lede:

    CBS showed a frowny-faced Trump but no details:

    NBC buried Trump’s win under a string of tweets about sexual, religious, and racial minorities:

    The courts may block the deal, said immigration advocate Andrew Selee, the president of the Migration Policy Institute:

    The ACLU is trying to block the deal:

    Immigration lawyer Sarah Pierce is hoping the courts will block the deal:

    LOOKS LIKE A GARBAGE DEAL TO ME????? Nothing new in it. Mexico promises to stop the invaders at the Guatemalan border and expand this Remain in Mexico agreement we already have with them and the Communist Filth/SCUM are suing against. We're still handing these invaders these credible fear interviews so they can repeat their bogus stories they are prepped with, but they will remain in Mexico until they are ajudicated. All they have to do is sneak into the nation after they're interviewed and sent back over the border to wait. WE WILL SEE if Mexico can hold the line on their Guatemalen border because that's the only part of this agreement that means anything, other than the part of it that stipulates that Mexico will crack down on these Communist NGO's that were bringing these invaders up to the border. Mexico was obviously working with these organizations. How were the invaders getting hundred of thousands of bus tickets????? WHY WASN'T TRUMP RAIDING AND ARRESTING THESE REVOLUTIONARY COMMUNIST SCUM HERE IN THE USA WHEN ONE OF THEM HAS A WEB SITE BRAGGING ABOUT THEIR ILLITCITE ACTIVITIES?????
