Mexican authorities are set to offer a set of concessions intended to deter illegal immigration to the United States, with the hopes of avoiding stringent and gradually increasing tariffs planned by President Trump. The tariffs have been structured as a means to motivate the government of Mexico to deter the waves of illegal immigrants coming through the country on the way to the United States.
Reporting from the Washington Post on Thursday indicated that Mexican authorities have offered to deploy 6,000 members of the Mexican National Guard to the nation’s southern border with Guatemala. The Mexicans have maintained that this would be crucial in preventing the massive ‘caravan’ formations of Central Americans from entering their country with the hopes of making it to the United States.
Mexico is also willing to make a “safe third country” agreement with the United States. Under such an agreement, which the United States already has with Canada, asylum seekers would be obligated to file an asylum claim in the first country they’ve reached since leaving their homeland. This would force Central Americans to file asylum claims in Mexico, provided it’s the first nation they’ve reached since leaving.
Cutting off an avenue for migrants to travel through Mexico and file for asylum in the United States could ultimately prove to be a huge deterrent in mitigating the migrant caravans, which often prove to be tens of thousands strong.
Mexico had previously resisted making such an agreement with the United States, but the tariff plan announced by President Trump appears to have led to them reconsidering. Under the plan, a 5% tariff will be applied on all Mexican exports to the United States on June 10th. The tariffs would increase to a 25% by October, if Mexico fails to satisfactorily cooperate with the United States to deter illegal immigration.
The willingness of Mexico to come to the table and offer a serious deal proves the strength of the tariffs as a negotiating tactic. Establishment beltway conservatives and Democrats had previously decried their implementation, claiming that they would lead to a trade war and couldn’t possibly result in productive exchange with the Mexican government. Instead, if the Mexican government’s proposed deal proves acceptable, it’s possible the tariffs will be averted and serious progress will be made in deterring mass illegal immigration.
Customs and Border Patrol Arrest 36 Camouflaged Illegal Aliens at Open Borders Organization’s Smuggling Camp
Illegal immigration is back on.
Customs and Border Patrol arrested more than three dozen illegal immigrants at a smuggling camp operated by a left-wing open borders organization in Arizona on Friday night, possibly signaling that illegal immigration is back on after the coronavirus halted human smuggling and trafficking operations at the U.S-Mexico border.
CBP Tucson Sector Chief Roy Villareal recounted the operation, which was executed on a camp operated by the ‘No More Deaths’ open borders group, which coordinates and assists in dangerous border crossings on the part of illegal aliens in southern Arizona. CBP executed a federal search warrant on the camp in Aricava, Arizona, after investigating the criminal activity associated with the facility.

“On July 31, 2020, Border Patrol agents from the Tucson Border Patrol Sector, with support from CBP Air and Marine Operation’s Tucson Air Branch executed a federal search warrant on the No More Deaths camp near Arivaca, Arizona. Upon entry, over three dozen Illegal border crossers were found within the camp,” revealed CBP in a statement to News 4 Tucson.
The group that was arrested may have been one of the biggest detained by CBP since the onset of the coronavirus pandemic, which largely halted illegal immigration. The capture of larger groups of illegal immigrants in recent days and weeks may signal that large-scale human smuggling operations may be back on after a hiatus.
Chief Villareal shared CBP imagery revealing that the group formation of illegal aliens traveled directly to the No More Deaths camp in Aricava, suggesting a degree of coordination between the open borders group and the border crossers.

Federal authorities have pointed to the left-wing camp as a tool utilized by drug smugglers and criminals seeking to infiltrate the United States for years, having dismantled the camp through court order before.
Law enforcement operations occur in the area around the No More Deaths camp regularly as this is a key smuggling route for both undocumented migrants and drug traffickers.

No More Deaths continues to incentivize highly dangerous border crossings in the Sonoran Desert in the thick of the Arizona summer, endangering the lives of law enforcement, the public, and unauthorized migrants who make the treacherous journey with the promise of assistance.
