After President Trump threatened to raise tariffs on Mexico if it continues to allow mass migration into the US, Mexico’s top diplomats issued a veiled threat suggesting that without their efforts, 250,000 more Central American migrants could proceed north to the US border. In recent months, Mexican officials have provided buses and security for thousands of migrants moving to the US border with increasing efficiency. US Immigration authorities are expected to apprehend over 1 million migrants crossing the border by the end of 2019.

Mexico’s top diplomats issued a veiled threat to the U.S. government suggesting that without their efforts, 250,000 more Central American migrants could proceed north. The statement follows President Donald Trump’s threat of raising a 5 percent tariff if Mexico does not strengthen its borders.

On Monday evening, Mexico’s Foreign Relations Secretariat posted a statement claiming the country was effectively providing humanitarian visas to Central American migrants and strengthening immigration enforcement operations in southern Mexico.

“Without these important Mexican efforts in immigration matters, the U.S. would receive 250,000 additional migrants, only in 2019,” the prepared statement revealed. The veiled threat was buried at in the middle of a document where Mexican officials claimed to have deported more than 80,000 migrants and arrested 400 suspected smugglers in conjunction with U.S. officials.
