The U.S. -Mexico migration agreement reached last week includes a regional asylum plan and Mexico's commitment to examine and potentially change its laws, according to a copy held up to journalists by President Donald Trump on Tuesday.
The State Department released an outline of the deal later on June 7, which states that Mexico agreed to take "unprecedented steps to increase enforcement to curb irregular migration", including the deployment of the Mexican National Guard throughout the country, starting June 10, especially on its southern border with Guatemala. Increasing numbers of Central American families and unaccompanied minors seeking asylum from violence have been turning themselves in to US border agents who have long focused on catching mainly single, adult Mexicans trying to cross.
Ebrard said if Washington is not satisfied with the results, Mexico City has agreed to discuss a key Trump demand: a "safe third country" agreement, in which migrants entering Mexican territory must apply for asylum there rather than the U.S.
"Tariffs are a great negotiating tool, a great revenue producers and, most importantly, a powerful way to get companies to come to the United States of America and to get companies that have left us for other lands to come back home", Trump tweeted.
Earlier on Twitter, Trump said, "Biggest part of deal with Mexico has not yet been revealed!" -Mexican border say they are fleeing violence and repression. Asylum seekers who cross into the US will be quickly returned to Mexico where they'll wait for their claims to be resolved; the USA agreed to accelerate adjudication.
Expressions by migrants of a fear of returning to their home countries triggers a USA immigration court process, which can take months or years to resolve due to backlogs in the system. In an apparent reference to the regional asylum concept, he said the United States was also talking to Brazil, Central American nations and Panama. The problem is that France makes it very hard for the U.S. to sell its wines into France, and charges big Tariffs, whereas the United States makes it easy for French wines, and charges very small Tariffs. "We'll only move on to that if it's necessary", Pence told the Fox News Channel's "Special Report with Bret Baier" on Monday. He gave no more details. "The idea is to make the south like the north as far as possible", he said.
The deal outline also stated that the United States "will immediately expand the implementation" of a program that returns immigrants who cross the southern border to Mexico while their claims are adjudicated.
President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador named Foreign Minister Marcelo Ebrard - his point man for the negotiations in Washington that produced Friday's deal - as the top official on the committee.
