US-Mexican Relations

Friday, 27 January 2017

Michael Shifter, President of the Inter-American Dialogue, analyzes the crisis in US-Mexican relations. The stakes are very high for both countries, the potential for both countries losing is high. Sample from article:
“And, ironically, undocumented immigration would spike. Mexicans workers would feel forced to flee the consequences of NAFTA's collapse and the Mexican government could loosen its controls on immigration from Central America. (At present, seven in 10 Central American migrants headed for the U.S. are apprehended at Mexico's southern border with Guatemala.) Trump is the only one who can end this standoff. Only he can prevent lost jobs, new security vulnerabilities and a wave of illegal immigration — all of which are exactly what he aimed to prevent in the first place.”
