Trump inadvertently reveals details of Mexico migrant deal

Saturday, 15 Jun, 2019

U.S. President Donald Trump participates in a roundtable discussion on immigration and border security at the U.S. Border Patrol Calexico Station before visiting the U.S. -Mexico border in Calexico, California, U.S., April 5, 2019.

Ebrard said those asylum seekers would start being returned to wait out their cases in Mexico via three more cities, which officials will decide on Friday.

"That's the agreement that everybody says I don't have", Trump said at the White House Tuesday, holding one page of what he described as a lengthy deal. "We don't desire them to militarize the southern border, staunch cherish we urged Trump now to now not militarize [the border with the U.S.]".

Other details included a reference to "45 days" - the amount of time for Mexico to show it can reduce the flow of migrants across the border with the U.S. before other Latin American countries got involved in processing asylum claims. Mexico also agreed to a 45-day timeline to show that increased enforcement efforts were effective. Mexico told us absolutely, I don't know where The Times got the story, ' Trump said Tuesday.

"It's going to reduce our activity here", Hernandez said.

They also warned that if Mexico failed to impose the new immigration deal, the import tariff will be put in place that would be greatly damaging to Mexico.

"We could say that we're already in the implementation phase of the special plan", Ebrard said, adding that the National Guard rollout will be carried out quickly starting this week.

The MPP was first trialed in at the San Ysidro border crossing between San Diego and Tijuana, Mexico, but has so far expanded to the points of entry in Calexico, California, and El Paso, Texas.

If this plan failed, the foreign minister said, Mexico had agreed to be designated a safe third country - something that the U.S. had demanded previously, but had always been rejected by Mexico. "You would never have had that deal" without the threat, he said at the White House.

Trump has made stopping illegal immigration a priority during his two years in office. Asylum seekers who cross into the USA will be quickly returned to Mexico where they'll wait for their claims to be resolved; the US agreed to accelerate adjudication of those legal matters.

Expressions by migrants of a fear of returning to their home countries triggers a US immigration court process, which can take months or years to resolve due to backlogs in the system.

If this belief fails, the worldwide minister talked about, Mexico has agreed to be designated a stable third nation - something that has been demanded by the U.S. sooner than, but has lengthy been rejected by Mexico.
