Mexico: Nieto vows to defend NAFTA, nation’s “dignity”

Source: Reuters

“Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto on Saturday defended free trade and young migrants in the United States, saying his government would not accept insults against ‘national dignity’ from the administration of U.S. President Donald Trump. Trade negotiators from Canada, the United States and Mexico are working through the weekend in Mexico City to present more proposals for a renewed North American Free Trade Agreement, which Trump just this week threatened to rip up. … Trump is expected to announce on Tuesday whether he will end the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, or DACA, program that was put in place under former President Barack Obama and which protects nearly 800,000 young men and women from deportation. … Trump this week also insisted again that Mexico would eventually pay for his proposed wall on the southern U.S. border to block the flow of illegal immigrants and drugs.” (09/02/17)
