For those unsure about the deal struck with Mexico, remember the travel ban. It was a simple thing that changed the pipeline of refugees and took the profit motive out. Now instead of 120k refugees there are less than 30k admitted. The same principle is behind this agreement.
The agreement changes catch and release to catch and return across the entire border. It takes the profit motive away from the Illegals and thus from the cartels/human trafficking. The illegals are not released into the country and thus can't pay the cartels back.
It's hard to make money when you are sitting on the wrong side of the border awaiting a hearing where you stand a 90% of losing your case. If you don't make money you can't pay the traffickers. Why travel 2000miles to get a quick flight back home. Maybe for a vacation?
Mexico agreed to the MPP which has already had a injunction stayed by the 9th circuit. So one friendly leftist judge can not stop this quickly. Mexico has 90 days to show progress. Breaking the profit motive for 90 days is a big deal.
Mexico has also agreed to disrupt and break up those trafficking groups and secure it's southern border I don't know if they will, but I would imagine there will be disruption for a periond of weeks/months. While this is going on the Wall is being built.
So, you have catch and release gone. The profit motive behind the traffickers disrupted, the supply pipeline reduced and enforcement at the border increased.
This deal also makes it imperative that Trump gets re-elected because the next President can quickly change this and the problem comes back. This is a short term fix that can last up to 6 years and by that time hopefully the changes will become accepted fact.
Considering that last week Mexico wasn't even at the table on any of these issues, the agreement struck today is a big win for those wanting less Illegal immigration done with nothing but a threat of tariffs.
Of course the other side will down play this but the fact is Mexico caved and Trump got an agreement that if followed is very good for the USA. It doesn't solve everything but it does reduce the problem bigly. Congressional action is still needed and the wall must be continued.
