Mexico reveals border infrastructure plan; Trump vows migration deal details

Trump threatens tariffs will be reinstated if Mexico fails to pass immigration deal Trump Nixes Plans For Mexican Import Tariffs After Reaching Immigration Deal

But he said: "We told them - I think it was the most important achievement of the negotiations - 'let's set a time period to see if what Mexico is proposing will work, and if not, we'll sit down and see what additional measures [are needed]'".

"We have fully signed and documented another very important part of the Immigration and Security deal with Mexico, one that the USA has been asking about getting for many years".

"We do not anticipate a problem with the vote but, if for any reason the approval is not forthcoming, tariffs will be reinstated", he added, without elaborating.

"The Tariffs scheduled to be implemented by the US on Monday, against Mexico, are hereby indefinitely suspended", Trump said on Twitter on Friday evening.

That includes a commitment by Mexico to deploy its new National Guard to the country's southern border with Guatemala - something the country already meant to do before Trump's latest threat.

Trump blasted that report, calling it a "FRAUD" and "nothing more than a badly reported "hit job" on me".

Mexico said Monday it will discuss a "safe third country" agreement with the United States - in which migrants entering Mexican territory must apply for asylum there rather than the U.S. - if the flow of undocumented immigrants continues.

"But we purposely said we wouldn't mention it for a little while ..."

The deal struck between the USA and Mexico came just a few days before the US was set to impose a 5% tariff on Mexican goods coming into the US until Mexico stopped the flow of illegal immigration that has been flooding the southern border.

President Trump defends using trade tariffs
The United States is seeking sweeping changes, including an end to forced technology transfers and theft of USA trade secrets. Earlier, it insisted that the trade friction with Washington was not taking much of a toll on its global business.

The President said that those who have appeared before the PSC so far are former officers or officials and not current officers. Sirisena told his police top brass on Friday that he would not allow any police, military or intelligence personnel to testify.

Trump had threatened to impose 5% import tariffs on all Mexican goods from Monday if Mexico did not agree to his demands to tighten its borders. It has to be brought by their legislative body, it's got to be taken to a vote.

"They wanted something else totally different ... to be signed", Ebrard said Monday.

Mexico was also taking "decisive action to dismantle human smuggling and trafficking organizations as well as their illicit financial and transportation networks", the State Department said. President Trump also claimed that Mexico will "immediately" start buying more US-made farm products.

Mr Ebrard also said U.S. negotiators had wanted Mexico to commit to "zero migrants" crossing its territory, but that was "mission impossible". "That will be announced at the appropriate time".

He also warned Mexico he would put his threat of tariffs into place if they did not decrease the number of illegal immigrants crossing the border.

Asylum is at the core of Trump's concerns about a surge in undocumented immigration because a large proportion of the people apprehended at the U.S. Mexican officials have described their commitment as an accelerated deployment. The aim would be to establish a regional refuge system in conjunction with the United Nations and the governments of Guatemala, Panama and Brazil - three countries that are often starting points for migrants headed to the U.S.

"While in theory such an agreement would share the burden of refugee flows across several countries, in reality it could significantly worsen the current situation if the designated countries are unable or unwilling to properly accept and integrate the migrants", she said.

Trump has dangled the prospect of renewing his tariff threat if the USA ally doesn't cooperate to his liking.
