The latest unpublished collection of US Government files on the assassination of John F. Kennedy will come to light this Thursday in a partial or total way, and although the experts do not expect any "hit”, the documents could clarified on the agreements between the CIA and Mexico in the Cold War.

About 3,100 official records so far classified and guarded by the US National Archives will be released on Thursday if US President Donald Trump does not stop it, as dictated by a law passed in 1992.

Trump, who last Saturday said he would allow the documents to see the light, confirmed today that the "awaited publication of the JFK archives will take place tomorrow."

The imminent disclosure is haunting historians and proponents of conspiracy theories, but the White House has hinted that the publication could only be partial: Trump could block disclosure of some documents deemed sensitive by the CIA or other branches of the US government.

"After 54 years, there is no reason that the facts of the JFK assassination should not be made public," Rep. Walter Jones said in a statement announcing legislation introduced calling for a full release. "It's time to reveal what happened that awful afternoon in 1963," he added.
