The Remain in Mexico policy allows Trump's border agencies to bypass the "catch and release" policy imposed by Congress and the courts.

"We have been trying to get some of these Border Actions for a long time, as have other administrations, but were not able to get them, or get them in full, until our signed agreement with Mexico", he tweeted Sunday, adding during a call-in interview with CNBC Monday morning that officials had "talked about it for months and months and months", but couldn't reach agreement until the threat. 'I think they probably got it the probably from somebody who worked here and said how well they were doing. "And yet we charge them very little for French wine", the president told CNBC, adding that California winemakers have complained to him about the European Union tariffs.

U.S. producers complain that French wines get to American shelves "for nothing", he said, adding "it's not fair and we'll do something about it".

'Two weeks ago, I'll tell you what we had.

"They wanted us to sign something totally different", Ebrard said.

The agreement would expedite a programme known as the Migration Protection Protocols, which sends people seeking asylum in the United States to wait in Mexico as their cases are processed. "The last time they deployed down there is about four or 500 officers", McAleenan said of the 6,000 troops commitment from Mexico.

The Wine Institute claims that "high tariff rates constitute the single most restrictive barrier to USA wine exports", however, the French - known worldwide for their wine - do not import much American wine to begin with.

Trump and other administration officials, however, say Mexico made major concessions and have credited his threat to slap a 5% tax on all Mexican goods if the country didn't immediately agree to do more to stem the flow of Central American migrants across the USA southern border.

Huawei approaches developers to publish on its app store
The moment of truth is approaching fast whether it is worth buying a Huawei or Honor smartphone or tablet after August 19. Financial Times recently reported that Google warned the US government of the potential risks of blacklisting Huawei .

The United States wants Mexico to be declared a safe third country in which asylum seekers would have to seek safe harbor instead of the United States, a demand Mexico has long rejected.

Both Mexico and the US say they have perhaps 45 days to prove their deal is working or else they will revisit matters and look for more options to stop the 5,000 people a day coming from Central America through Mexico.

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

"Mexico, in turn, has agreed to take strong measures to stem the tide of Migration through Mexico, and to our Southern Border".

He said the tax on those goods would increase each month the problem persisted until October, when it would cap at 25 per cent.

"Therefore, the United States and Mexico will continue their discussions on the terms of additional understandings to address irregular migrant flows and asylum issues, to be completed and announced within 90 days, if necessary", the statement says.

US President Donald Trump has vowed to do "something" about the unfair, as he described it, situation with French wine that is imported into the US virtually tariff-free while France imposes duties on US wine, writes Time.

Still, critics question if the deal is actually new.
