US-Mexico Relations Under the Trump Administration

The US-Mexico relationship is at a crossroads. President Trump’s vows to renegotiate NAFTA, crack down on immigration, and to create physical and economic barriers between the two countries, portend disruption in longstanding commercial, political, and social ties. Moreover, diplomatic relations have deteriorated rapidly—culminating in President Peña Nieto’s recent decision to cancel a visit to Washington. Will the friendly bilateral relations in recent years endure, or will the neighbors revert to the general antagonism of previous periods? Join the Council on Global Affairs for a discussion on US-Mexico relations in the Trump era.
