In May, Trump unexpectedly announced a 5% tariff on all Mexican imports unless Mexico took decisive action to tackle border issues.

Mexico had prepared a list of possible retaliatory tariffs targeting products from agricultural and industrial states regarded as Trump's electoral base, a tactic China has also used with an eye toward the Republican president's 2020 re-election bid.

The deal did not include a key USA demand that Mexico accept a "safe third country" designation that would have forced it to permanently take in most Central American asylum seekers.

"The United States looks forward to working alongside Mexico to fulfill these commitments so that we can stem the tide of illegal migration across our southern border and to make our border strong and secure", Pompeo said. The top USA diplomat says, "The United States looks forward to working alongside Mexico to fulfill these commitments so that we can stem the tide of illegal migration across our southern border and to make our border strong and secure". If the border agencies can not keep pace with the cartels' transport networks, they may be forced to release some migrants into the United States.

U.S. President Donald Trump said on Friday Mexico's government had reached a deal with the United States to avert a tariff war by pledging to take "strong measures" to contain the migration of mostly Central Americans crossing the southern U.S. border.

The deal was also confirmed in a tweet by Mexico's Foreign Secratary Marcelo Ebrard.

President Donald Trump says he has "indefinitely suspended" tariffs he has threatened to impose Monday on Mexican imports. "President Trump proved he wasn't bluffing, and his bold leadership just resulted in a huge win for America's safety and security".

Unlike many other news organizations, we have not put up a paywall. Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin said in a statement.

Trump's announcement came via a pair of tweets on Friday night.

"In response, Mexico will authorize the entrance of all of those individuals for humanitarian reasons, in compliance with its worldwide obligations, while they await the adjudication of their asylum claims", the declaration said.

In exchange, the U.S will also work with Mexico to spur regional economic development.

U.S. Customs and Border Patrol apprehended 144,278 people along the southern border in May, shattering April's intake of migrants with a 32 percent increase.

But Leticia Calderón Cheluis, a migration expert at the Mora Institute in Mexico City, said the agreement is essentially a series of compromises exclusively by Mexico, which she said committed to "a double clamp at both borders".

Schumer took a different approach, saying - seemingly with as much sarcasm as can drip on Twitter - that since Mr. Trump has struck a deal, he can stop talking about illegal immigration.
