Trump threatened Mexico with the withdrawal of American companies

American companies will leave Mexico and return to the United States if the Mexican authorities do not put an end to illegal migration to the United States. The corresponding message the American leader Donald Trump published on Sunday on Twitter.

“Mexico is sending a large delegation to talk about the migration crisis on the US-Mexican border. The problem is, they’ve been talking for 25 years. We want action, not talk,” Trump wrote.

According to him, Mexico City “if desired” need only one day to resolve the migration crisis on the border of the two countries. “Otherwise, our companies and jobs will return to the US!”- concluded the President.

On Thursday, Trump announced the introduction of duties of 5% on goods from Mexico in connection with the migration crisis on the border of the two countries. On Friday, he said that such a step would prevent not only illegal migration but also the smuggling of drugs from the Latin American country. Mexican foreign Minister Marcelo Ebrard said in this regard that his country is not responsible “for the flow of migrants from Central America and other countries,” as well as for the growth of drug use in the United States.

Negotiations aimed at resolving the situation with duties will begin in Washington on June 5. In 2018, the US purchased goods in the neighboring country for $346.6 billion.

According to the Interior Ministry of Mexico, this year the country faced a significant increase in the number of migrants seeking to enter the United States from Central America, the Caribbean, and other regions. According to the Agency, we are talking about 300 thousand people only in the first quarter.
