Trump’s Relationship With Mexico Isn’t As Bad As We Think

President Trump and Mexico did not appear to get along at the outset of his administration, what with his whole pledge to build a wall and make them pay for it and talks of renegotiating NAFTA. Yet, Mexican Ambassador Gerónimo Gutiérrez told The Hill this weekend that the relationship is not as strained as we may think.

The wall is still a red line that needs to be cleared, Gutiérrez said, but they have made significant strides in other policy areas.

One recent issue that Mexico has been compelled to respond to is Trump’s decision to rescind the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program. While Gutiérrez says Mexico would welcome DACA recipients back, Dreamers grew up in the U.S. and it’s the only home they know.

They are “basically like any other children in the United States,” he reasoned.
