REPORT: Battle erupts over NYT report calling Mexico immigration pact a mirage

JUNE 11, 2019

As the most reliable and balanced news aggregation service on the internet, DML News App offers the following information published by FOXNEWS.COM:

A weekend news report claiming the U.S. immigration pact with Mexico was a hodge-podge of recycled ideas that America’s southern neighbor had already agreed to is coming under fresh criticism, as the Trump administration denies it and a separate report challenges the claims.

The debate follows President Trump’s move to threaten crushing tariffs against Mexico, only to back off late Friday claiming he had extracted an agreement with the country to confront the flow of migrants from Central America. The New York Times, in a report Trump continues to slam, swiftly challenged the administration’s narrative by claiming parts of the agreement were already in the works before the tariff drama.

The article goes on to state the following:

But The Washington Post on Tuesday published a separate report, citing Trump administration and Mexican officials as well as documents, giving a different perspective. The Post called Mexico’s promises “unprecedented” and the measures “more substantial” than promises made by Mexican officials in the past.

Trump blasted the New York Times report, saying it is a “FRAUD” and “ a badly reported ‘hit job’ on me.”

The Post interviewed U.S. officials who were impressed with a promise from Mexico to deploy 6,000 national guard troops to the border between the U.S and Mexico.

According to Mexican government documents, this is “the first time in recent history that Mexico has decided to take operational control of its southern border as a priority.”
