June 10, 2019 – The U.S. and Mexico have reached a deal to avoid a 5% tariff on all Mexican imports that was set to take effect today, President Donald Trump tweeted Friday night. "The Tariffs scheduled to be implemented by the U.S. on Monday, against Mexico, are hereby indefinitely suspended," Trump tweeted. "Mexico, in turn, has agreed to take strong measures to stem the tide of Migration through Mexico, and to our Southern Border. This is being done to greatly reduce, or eliminate, Illegal Immigration coming from Mexico and into the United States." The State Department released a statement saying the two countries would continue discussions on immigration issues, but said "further actions" may be taken if these measures don’t work as intended.
