Mexico to vaccinate migrants in Baja California under new border initiative
  + stars: | 2021-06-19 | by ( Lizbeth Diaz | ) www.reuters.com sentiment -1.00   time to read: +2 min
REUTERS/Jose Luis Gonzalez/File PhotoMEXICO CITY, June 18 (Reuters) - Authorities in the Mexican border state of Baja California say they will include migrants in the new COVID-19 vaccination plan for border cities, which is aimed at accelerating the reopening of the shared land border with the United States. Baja California Health Secretary Alonso Óscar Pérez told Reuters on Friday that the agency has a plan to vaccinate migrants as part of this new border vaccination initiative. Mexico is rolling out its border initiative first in Baja California, home to one of the busiest land border crossings in the world, then plans to move west state-by-state until reaching Mexico's eastern seaboard. The decision to include migrants in Baja California may mean migrants will be included across Mexico's border, where thousands of mostly Central American migrants wait, often for months, in hopes of being able to cross into the United States. Migrant advocates have been pushing the state for information about how this vaccination drive will include the estimated 4,000 migrants living in Baja California, according to data provided by local shelters.

REUTERS/Evelyn HocksteinWASHINGTON, June 17 (Reuters) - U.S. Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen met with Mexican finance minister Arturo Herrera on Thursday, stressing the importance of securing support from the Group of 20 major economies for a proposed global minimum tax, the Treasury said in a statement. Yellen, whose proposal for a global minimum tax of at least 15% has won the backing of the Group of Seven advanced economies, is now urging G20 countries - including Mexico and China - to support the plan when they meet in Venice in July. Yellen told U.S. lawmakers that Washington would not agree to any type of special treatment for China or other countries that would weaken a global minimum tax regime. Herrera, who met with Yellen in Washington, said the two officials discussed the possible approval and implementation of the global minimum tax rate, but gave no details. Treasury said Yellen reviewed ongoing efforts in both countries to address the COVID-19 pandemic and to support a robust economic recovery.

A breakdown of the figures showed that secondary activities, which include manufacturing, were up by 36.4% from May 2020. The agency also said the preliminary figures pointed to month-on-month economic growth of 0.5% between April and May. The coronavirus pandemic hit the Mexican economy hard last year, reducing gross domestic product by some 8.5%. In 2021, the finance ministry says the economy could grow by 6.5%, recouping much of the ground lost. Robust export activity has helped to drive the recovery, which has benefited from massive economic stimulus spending in the United States, Mexico's top trade partner.

Gunmen hijacked two trucks hauling more than 7 million rounds of ammunition in central Mexico. Gunmen hijacked two trucks hauling more than 7 million rounds of ammunition in central Mexico, a massive heist that could escalate fighting in one of the country's most violent areas. The stolen ammunition was for 14 different types of guns and had an estimated value of $2.7 million, according to media estimates. Mexico has strict gun-control laws, and the vast majority of illegal weaponry used by criminal groups in Mexico is sourced in the United States. The highest-profile case of ammunition robbery in Mexico came in July 2020 when 28,000 bullets disappeared from the police force of Silao, a town in Guanajuato.

Mexican auto parts lobby sees chip supply crunch over by December

The supply crunch began last year as the coronavirus pandemic forced the North American auto industry to shut down for a couple of months, which kicked off a cascading series of order cancellations. Bustamante pointed to steadily growing vaccination rates in major economies and ebbing infections as helping drive a return to normal for the auto sector. He noted that after Mexico's autoparts output dropped 20% last year in value terms due to the pandemic, a nearly 18% uptick is expected this year to reach $92.4 billion in production value. Mexico's massive auto sector is the country's top foreign currency earner, and employs more than 850,000 people. Every vehicle assembled in the United States includes up to $5,500 in Mexican-made parts, he said.

He added that Facebook permits content related to seeking asylum and that it had consulted with the United Nations on its content policies around human smuggling. The policies draw on the U.N. definition of human smuggling as “the procurement or facilitation of illegal entry into a state across international borders” that doesn’t necessarily involve coercion or force.

G7 finance ministers agreed on Saturday on a system to make multinational companies pay more tax in countries where they operate, alongside a minimum global corporate tax rate of at least 15%. "Together, we can ensure that global capitalism is compatible with fair tax systems and that governments are able to tax multinational corporations," they added.

The wife of Mexican drug lord Joaquin "El Chapo" Guzman, Emma Coronel Aispuro, on Thursday pleaded guilty in a U.S. federal court to helping her husband run the Sinaloa cartel, charges that could lead to more than a decade in prison. As part of her plea agreement, she also admitted to conspiring to helping her husband escape in 2015 from Altiplano, a Mexican maximum security prison. Without showing any obvious emotion and her face covered by a mask, Coronel said she understood the charges and the repercussions of her guilty plea. Coronel could face up to life in prison for the drug distribution charge alone. He was sentenced to life in prison plus 30 years, and locked up in the federal Supermax prison in Florence, Colorado.
