Migrants, trade, crime, the border wall: The challenges to the modern U.S.-Mexico relationship have perhaps never been as stark and divisive as they are now, at a critical juncture for both countries

MEXICO CITY — Migrants, trade, crime, the border wall: The challenges to the modern U.S.-Mexico relationship have perhaps never been as stark as they are now.

With a new president preparing to take power in Mexico City this weekend and the Trump administration set to enter its third year, the two neighbors are lurching between crisis and opportunity on each front.

While a trade dispute that President Donald Trump had fanned with great enthusiasm seems set to ease, the other issues remain unresolved and potential flashpoints for both countries.

The positive trade development can't mask deeper tensions over migration and drug trafficking, Trump's demands that Mexico pay for a border wall and the deployment of U.S. troops to the southern frontier with a threat to seal all crossings.
