Mexico remains hopeful it can reach a migration deal with U.S. as tariffs loom


WASHINGTON (Reuters) – Mexico can reach an agreement with the United States to resolve a dispute over migration that prompted U.S. President Donald Trump to threaten punitive tariffs, Mexico’s Foreign Minister Marcelo Ebrard said on Monday.

Ebrard, speaking at a news conference, said if Washington imposed tariffs on Mexican imports it could be counterproductive to stopping immigration flows across the southern U.S. border.
