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.

It has now been one year since the victory of President Andrés Manuel López Obrador, an election that was won with the promise of a Fourth Transformation in Mexico.

Six months after taking office, he has maintained a high level of popular support while aggressively pursuing his agenda and managing a challenging relationship with the U.S. administration.

Nuclear Energy and the United States-Mexico 123 Agreement

Mexico’s nuclear program dates back to the 1950s with research being performed at universities around the country and the creation of the Comisión Nacional de Energía Nuclear (CNEN) by presidential decree in 1956 under the conviction that peaceful nuclear energetic and non-energetic applications could contribute to scientific and technological development of Mexico. In 2016, the governments of both Mexico and the United States announced an agreement for cooperation concerning peaceful uses of nuclear energy.

Mexico's Dignity

The damage is done. Irrespective of whether Donald Trump imposes his proposed tariffs on Mexican goods, he has already gravely undermined the bilateral relationship between the United States and Mexico.

Donald Trump has begun his 2020 reelection bid in much the same way he began his successful 2016 campaign: by attacking Mexico and Mexicans to galvanise his base. He has insouciantly slapped Mexico, a central economic partner and strategic ally, with the International Economic Emergency Powers Act, a law ordinarily reserved for enemies of the United States.
