Sustaining Progress with Mexico on Migration

The United States and Mexico escaped President Trump’s threat of mutually destructive tariffs with a June 7 agreement on steps to reduce migrant flows to the United States. Mexico since has dramatically improved its efforts to reduce the number of Central American and other migrants reaching the U.S.-Mexico border. 

The number of migrants apprehended at the U.S. border reportedly dropped to under 100,000 in June from 144,000 in May, a reduction of over 30 percent. Mexico deported 22,000 migrants in June, a 33 percent increase from May and a 13-year high.

With an estimated 5,000 Venezuelans leaving the country each day, the number is projected to reach 5.4 million by the end of this year.
