Trump Wants to Pay Mexico $20 Million to Help With Deportations

Trump plans to use $20 million to pay Mexico to deport illegal aliens — from Mexico

While that promise hasn't come true, it turns out that the president is now willing to pay Mexico $20 million in exchange for the country's help in deporting undocumented immigrants.

The New York Times reported here on Thursday that President Donald Trump's administration told Congress that it meant to use $20 million of foreign aid to help Mexico deport thousands of people.

Thousands of migrants are detained by Mexico as they travel through the country to try to reach the United States, but the interior minister-designate said on Thursday no offer had been made to help fund the process.

In a joint statement, Mexico's Interior and Foreign Ministries said they had not accepted the proposal in either a "verbal or written" way.

He also wants to build a wall on the US-Mexican border - which he is fond of vowing he will make Mexico pay for, straining the two neighbors' relations.

"This one time infusion of assistance will help the (government of Mexico) address, and potentially deter, irregular migrant flows, which will help keep illegal immigrants from entering into the United States through the southwest border", the notification said.

The resulting outcry at home and overseas forced the administration to backtrack, but 416 of the minors remain in custody despite a court order to reunite them with their parents or guardians.

Mexico implemented a controversial migrant crackdown called the "southern border plan" in 2014 in response to an outflow of child migrants from Central America.

Most are Central Americans fleeing poverty and brutal gang violence.
