Some more details...

A Post photographer snapped an image of Trump's alleged secret Mexico deal. Here's what it says.
www.washingtonpost.com

...The Washington Post's Jabin Botsford, snapped an image that reveals some of the document's contents....

Another image, from White House Watch, shows what appears to be a preceding portion, along with what follows the signatures at the end....

Below I've combined what we can see in the two photos to reconstruct the document. Where I'm inferring some letters, I'll put it in brackets:

[UNREADABLE] such agreement would [UNREADABLE] party's domestic and international legal obligations, a commitment under which each party would accept the return, and process refugee status claims, of third-party nationals who have crossed that party's territory [UNREADABLE] other party. The parties further intend [UNREADABLE] an agreem[ent] [UNREADABLE] to burden-sharing in relation to the processing of refuge[es] [UNREADABLE].

Mexico also commits to immediate[ly] [UNREADABLE] domestic laws and regulations with a view to identifying any changes that [UNREADABLE] to bring into force and implement such an agreement.

If the United States determines, at its discretion and after consultation with Mexico, after 45 calendar days from the date of the issuance of the Joint Declaration, that the measures adopted by the Government of Mexico pursuant to the Joint Declaration have not sufficiently achieved results in addressing the flow of migrants to the southern border of the United States, the Government of Mexico will take all necessary steps under the domestic law to bring the agreement into force with a view to ensuring that the agreement will enter into force within 45 days.

Signed on this 7th of June, 2019 in Washington, D.C. by:

[SIGNATURE 1] [SIGNATURE 2]

On behalf of the United States On behalf of Mexico


Mexican Foreign Minister Marcelo Ebrard held a news conference in which he said that the Friday agreement with the United States gave Mexico 45 days to prove that it could diminish migration without agreeing to a "safe third" deal.

He acknowledged that in 45 days, if the United States does not assess that progress has been made, the Trump administration probably will ask again for a "safe third" agreement. But he said Mexico has not committed to that agreement, which would have to be approved by lawmakers and probably negotiated with other countries in the region....

Look at Venezuela. The people of that country must want to leave the severe threats they face there for a better place.

Should we also turn them away and make Mexico and the countries of Central America deal with that problem?

Trump wanted you to see whatever you saw.
...and report on it. A controlled leak. Target? Mexico.

Otherwise he'd have been waving a lunch menu.
In 3D chess, your opponents move isn't really his move.

Bravo, Mr. Trump. Mission Accomplished.

"Bravo, Mr. Trump. Mission Accomplished."

How anyone could praise Trump while those kids are still seperated from their parents is just bizarre.

Trump is masterfully playing EVERYONE and has been doing so for the past few years, nay-- for his WHOLE LIFE by pretending to be a lying, cheating, philandering numbskull who's only out for himself when in actuality he is the GREATEST PATRIOT EVER-- better than Washington, better than Lincoln-- even better than G.O.A.T. TOM BRADY and legendary offensive tackle JOHN HANNAH!

The fake media™ (the true enemy of the people) are being EXPOSED by Trump's sheer greatness, and to drive that point HOME he has brilliantly presented a SHEER piece of paper to let everyone know HE MEANS BUSINESS when it comes to making America Great Again™, Again!

Putin/Kim '20 (and beyond)

Trump does not own a trade mark for the idiotic slogan.

It's just like McCarthy's list of Soviet agents working in the State Department and Nixon's secret plan to end the Vietnam War, only dumber.

Not "bizarre", just Republican. Those kids aren't rich so they don't matter except as a means of getting the base excited.

Just another day in Trumpland:
Trump is reopening Japanese internment camps to house Central American immigrants seeking refugee status in the USA.
Dem Chair Richard Neal wants to prevent the use of the term "Medicare for All" in his medicare for all hearing. He wants participants to agree to only use the term "universal healthcare and access". Obviously he's in the insurance industry pockets.
Make it happen by waving

They are leaving ... something like 7% since 2015.

Should the US take them in?

Damn, you sure do think highly of a President who has screwed up so often to be laughable.

We will just ignore that Mexico already confirmed this is the deal and ignore how this isn't much of a deal at all.

Interesting...

Trump says he's looking at protections for Venezuelans in U.S.
www.japantimes.co.jp

...President Donald Trump says his administration is considering granting Temporary Protected Status to thousands of Venezuelans who have fled to the United States amid ongoing unrest.

The once-wealthy oil nation is now facing severe shortages of basic goods and hyperinflation. Trump says the situation in Venezuela is a horrible thing that's "been brewing for a long time."

TPS is granted to people from countries ravaged by natural disasters or war and lets them remain in the U.S. until the situation improves back home.

The Trump administration has moved to discontinue that protection for many countries. But when the president was asked Tuesday about TPS for Venezuelans, he says "we're looking at that very seriously."...

Trump is greedy and selfish. He's a petulant moron. He's a narcissist.

But, I don't believe he's ridiculously stupid.

If he's "showing" you something by "accident", it's on purpose, and definitely not an accident.

Democrats are getting lazy. Taking such easy bate.

Democrats need to get past their overconfidence and start taking him more seriously.

3D chess or not.

This wasn't a mistake.

You're almost as hysterical as Speaks.

Whatever has been on the table in discussions with Mexico for 3 months or 3 years is irrelevant until Mexico actually takes action. What we know is, that following Trumps tariff threats and accelerated talks last week, got them moving and taking action. Whether that continues is yet to be seen.

But your interest in the matter is narrow: Humiliate Trump at any cost, in every scenario, under every circumstance.

You're obsessed. and almost as hysterical as Speaks. Trump could grant citizenship tomorrow to every illegal immigrant in the US and you'd set him on fire and beat the flames out with a shovel.

You're driven by hatred. seething, unbridled hate.

My dear departed Wisconsin US Senator, "Tailgunner" Joe McCarthy, did exactly the same thing to instigate the "Red Scare" in the early Nineteen-Fifties. I ain't got time for this. JFGI.

Trump reminds me of nothing so much as that kid in Junior High who was always bragging about his sex life, when the entirety of his sex life was in his hand.

Oh c'mon! Trump is behaving like a 15-year-old who had sex the previous night, and is showing the used condom to his friends!

#19 | Posted by SheepleSchism

So that is what you think of Trump?

Because he is being driven by the actions of Trump.

So ipso facto and by the transitive property you are calling trumpy's actions seething and unbridled.

To which I wholeheartedly (and with malice toward no one) agree!
