New Mexico–USA Deal – level 1

14-06-2019 07:00

People are coming from Mexico to the USA. Some of them come illegally. Trump wants this to stop. He wants Mexico to stop them. He says that if Mexico does nothing, he puts a tax on things which Mexico sells to the USA.

Last week, the USA and Mexico make a deal. Mexico is going to try to stop the people. Trump says that he will not start the tax.

Difficult words: illegally (it is a crime to do it), tax (extra money that you have to pay to send something to another country), deal (a plan).
You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.
