Mexico publishes Trump’s ‘secret deal’ on migration

Luis Carlos Cano, a spokesman for Mexico's national immigration agency in Ciudad Juarez, across the border from El Paso, said starting Thursday some 200 asylum seekers per day were being sent back, up from 100 previously.

Trump's tariff threats seemed to have worked as Mexico recently vowed to do its part to stream the tide of illegal immigration in the USA following threats from Pres. Donald Trump of a 5% starting tariff on all goods coming in from the U.S. southern border until the Mexican government joins the fight on illegal immigration.

The flow of Central American migrants fleeing poverty and crime has increased since the end of 2018, with caravans of thousands crossing Mexico, mainly on foot, to reach the US border.

Remain in Mexico now in operation in Tijuana, Mexicali and Ciudad Juarez. Close to 12,000 people have been returned to Mexico since January.

In step with the Journal, Mexican Foreign Minister Marcelo Ebrard stated this week that it is seeking a multilateral resolution to the disaster, and can fair originate up working with several United Nations companies starting up effect next week.

"We still have the (tariff) ultimatum hanging over us, and on top of that we gave up the most precious jewel: we agreed to safe third country", he said. Ebrard said during a press conference.

Trump on Friday confirmed that the deal also included a plan to establish Mexico as a "safe third country" in which asylum seekers would have to seek refuge instead of in the United States, if Mexico did not do enough to reduce migration by mid-July through enforcement measures.

The document also stated that such an agreement was meant to be "part of a regional approach to burden-sharing" in processing migrants' asylum claims.

In a warning sign for Lopez Obrador, senators froze committee proceedings Wednesday on ratifying the USMCA, the country's new and vitally important trade agreement with the United States and Canada, saying they wanted to question Ebrard on the migration deal first.

"I'm going to let Mexico do the announcement", Trump added, after facing criticism at home suggesting there was little new in the migration deal.

After reading the document Trump so dramatically pulled from his pocket, she said: "Mr Foreign Minister, to put it plainly, this is binding".

Trump also named Tom Homan as "Border Czar".

According to a joint declaration issued by the State Department and Mexico last week, Mexico will take "unprecedented steps to increase enforcement to curb irregular migration, to include the deployment of its National Guard throughout Mexico, giving priority to its southern border".
