Mexico Deal Could be Nixed, Tariffs Reinstated, if Migration Doesn't Slow

Contrary to Mexico's foreign minister Marcelo Ebrard's comments of no secret deal with the U.S., as reported by New York Times, Jabin Botsford, Staff Photographer at The Washington Post, and VICE news, gave details of the deal waved at them recently.

Foreign Minister Marcelo Ebrard, who led the Mexican negotiating team in marathon talks in Washington last week, said he had rebuffed the USA demand for such a measure, but agreed to revisit the matter in 45 days.

"They have to work and get something done because you got a tremendous problem at the border".

"The Tariffs scheduled to be implemented by the US on Monday, against Mexico, are hereby indefinitely suspended", Trump said on Twitter on Friday evening. Mexico hasn't signed a safe-third-country agreement, but its assurances could be more than symbolic. The Mexican peso was up more than 2% against the dollar but major risks remain for the currency.

President Trump declined to say if Mexico, as part of their agreement with his administration, will become a safe third country for asylum seekers. They include the deployment of 6000 Mexican soldiers to the southern border with Guatemala and allowing Central Americans to wait in Mexico until their asylum claims, most of which are fraudulent, are processed.

In addition, there is an understanding that if the deal doesn't work, the US and Mexico will discuss a broader accord on asylum policy - perhaps on a regional basis - to require migrants to seek asylum in the first country they enter.

Mexico's Foreign Minister Marcelo Ebrard gestures as Mexico's President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador looks on during a news conference at National Palace in Mexico City, Mexico June 10, 2019. "This is being done to greatly reduce, or eliminate, illegal immigration coming from Mexico and into the United States".

Ebrard said that if Mexico could not contain the migrant flows, other countries might also need to be involved.

Mr Ebrard also said U.S. negotiators had wanted Mexico to commit to "zero migrants" crossing its territory, but that was "mission impossible". "I just give you my word". Migrants from African countries regularly fly to Brazil before making the arduous journey north.

While he did not go into detail, Ebrard suggested that asylum seekers might have to seek refuge in the first country they reached after leaving their homeland.

The president has argued not all details in his agreement with Mexico to stop illegal immigrants from crossing the border have been released yet as his way of pushing back against a New York Times report that the details between the two countries had been worked out months ago.

Still, he said Mexico's interests are aligned with those of the US and that it's "doing real things" and policing its borders.

Mexico had no specific target for the reduction of migrant numbers, Ebrard said.

In bright sunshine outside the White House, Trump waved what he said was the text of an agreement Mexican and U.S. officials signed Friday to avert the application of tariffs on their exports to the United States.
