U.S. credits Mexico, Central America for sharp drop in border arrests
Monday, 9 September 2019 The Trump administration on Monday credited Mexico and Central American countries with helping to cut U.S. border arrests by nearly 60% from a record high earlier this year but then lashed out at a federal judge for ruling against a strict anti-asylum policy.
Mexico says it does not expect the United States to threaten to put tariffs on its goods.
This is due to talks next week about efforts to curb migration from Central America, says Reuters.
Mexico has reduced the flow of undocumented migrants at the U.S. border by 56% between May and August.
