    The big thing that emerged from this is Mexico agreed to crack down on the organizers and funders of the caravans, and to give up names of known organizers based in the U.S.

    I have a hunch Trump is planning to make some theater around arresting several charity organizers in the U.S. for "human trafficking"

    I don't recall seeing anything about that -- Mexico is going to go after the smugglers and human traffickers, but I didn't see anything about the funders of the caravans...

    Of course.

    Is there any room in Donald Trump’s America for people to act like human beings?

    Makes sense.... but that involves foreign aid that Donald's base will never support.

    He backs down and agrees to let them do the things they'd already promised to do?

    I’m still surprised he’s not implementing everify. That might actually have an effect. The cynical side of me says he doesn’t want to solve the problem, but to exploit it politically. Hence he won’t do anything that would actually reduce immigration.

    With the money the US has agreed to invest in Central America in order to solve their problems and keep them from coming here in the first place, even if Mexico pays for the wall, the US will still end up losing money.

    ...besides, won't this deal make a wall unnecessary?

    Yeah, I saw your NYT link where it said "things Mexico largely already agreed to" meaning there's more, and they know there's more, but articles for the "gotcha" people still have to be written. Stopped reading when it called him Mr. Trump and not President Trump. Imagine them disrespecting President Obama like that. LOL

    Sorry, I meant the comment for all of Latin America, not just Central America.

    Is there a time limit? Does the resistance have to be a certain length of time before it can be capitulation?

    Hopefully, but it still won't stop Mexicans themselves from crossing illegally.

    Ah, the NYT at its best. An unnamed source from a secret meeting.

    Oh I'm not at all surprised Donald hasn't implemented e-verify. During Donald's federal shutdown it expired. Studies have shown that it reduces the number of illegal immigrants in states that have mandated use of it for all employers, deters illegal immigration to the US in general. Donald, unsurprisingly: Trump seeks cuts to E-Verify

    Donald's golf properties have been investigated by the FBI for hiring undocumented immigrants. Undocumented immigrants have talked about serving Donald personally.

    To boot, some Republicans also have pushed for an increase in the number of visas given out to migrant workers for cheaper labor.

    I think you're spot on that he's not at all interested in actually reducing illegal immigration. For Donald, it's all about political theater for his base. He wants to get them to keep tuning in to the next 'episode.'

    The house democrats are always upset and making noise no matter what the POTUS does...they have been doing so since he was elected and haven't done anything, but rant and rave since then. So more of the same here as usual.
