Mexico Considers Trump's Conditions on NAFTA Unacceptable

President Donald Trump renewed a threat Monday to make tighter control of the southern border a condition of the sweeping trade deal that his administration is renegotiating with Mexico and Canada, saying, "our Country can not accept what is happening".

US-Mexican relations have tensed again in recent weeks as Mr Trump fired off a series of furious tweets about a caravan of more than 1,000 Central American migrants traveling toward the US border, calling on the Mexican government to stop them. The United States has a similar agreement with Canada.

Asylum has turned into an Achilles heel of the immigration system, with many migrants having learned how to game the system, lodging claims when they are caught at the border.

"Trump has railed against the caravan, but migrants have the right to request asylum in the USA and should not be turned away buy border officials unless they fail to pass initial security screenings", the group said.

"Despite the Democrat inspired laws on Sanctuary Cities and the Border being so bad and one sided, I have instructed the Secretary of Homeland Security not to let these large Caravans of people into our Country", Trump said on Twitter.

"We are the only Country in the World so naive!"

U.S. President Donald Trump threatened to make Mexican immigration control a condition of a new NAFTA trade deal on Monday, even as ministers from Canada, the United States and Mexico readied a fresh push to finalize a revamped accord this week.

"Mexico, whose laws on immigration are very tough, must stop people from going through Mexico and into the US", Trump tweeted. The activists leading it said they would help some 200 migrants request asylum in the United States because they are fleeing violence or repression.

Trump also appeared to lay blame on Mexico for allowing the migrant caravan to reach its northern border, and threatened to link regional cooperation on immigration to talks to renew the North American Free Trade Agreement.

But Mr. Nielsen said if they are seeking a safe place away from their Central American homes they would stop in Mexico, where they are now traveling, and where authorities are able to provide asylum. "And we will enforce the law through prosecution of illegal border crossers".
