US, Mexico agree to avoid tariffs

President Donald Trump announced his government and Mexico reached an agreement on immigration policy. With this move, the planned tariffs on Mexican goods will not go into effect as scheduled. “I am pleased to inform you that The United States of America has reached a signed agreement with Mexico. 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. This is being done to greatly reduce, or eliminate, Illegal Immigration coming from Mexico and into the United States. Details of the agreement will be released shortly by the State Department. Thank you!” Trum said in a tweet. The negotiations came after U.S. President Donald Trump announced additional tariff for Mexican goods and lasted three days. The 5% tariffs which was announced in a tweet last week on all Mexican imports were set to begin on June 10. Trump had said the tariffs would be imposed “until such time as illegal migrants coming through Mexico, and into our Country, STOP.
