The plan to levy tariffs came to a halt after Mexico and the United States reached an agreement to curb illegal immigration.

The United States and Mexico signed a key portion of an immigration deal which will require approval by Mexico's legislative body, President Donald Trump announced on June 10.

The deal lays out "a regional approach to burden-sharing in relation to the processing of refugee status claims to migrants", the document said.

Still, Mexico's government said on Monday it had 45 days to show its measures were yielding results.

US authorities say they have been overwhelmed by a shift in the type of migrants turning up at the border.

Mexican Foreign Minister Marcelo Ebrard dropped his previous opposition to that idea in comments on Monday, but said other Latin American countries should share the asylum load with Mexico under such an arrangement.

Ebrard said this week that Mexico's Senate would need to be consulted about any such changes.

Last fall, in a Twitter outburst against French president Emmanuel Macron, Trump, who owns Trump Winery, a Charlottesville vineyard run by Eric Trump, claimed that wine in the U.S. is just as good as the beverage made in France. -Mexican border say they are fleeing violence and repression. Given that the USA immigration system is overwhelmed by asylum requests, the two countries have agreed that some will be resolved on Mexican soil. In January, the Trump administration began sending thousands of migrants back to Mexico to wait there instead.

Lopez Obrador, an anti-establishment leftist, has insisted tighter borders can not be the only solution, insisting on the need to protect migrants' rights and fund major infrastructure and development projects in Central America.

"I am very happy and satisfied with the agreement reached with the government of the United States. we avoided an economic and financial crisis, it was no minor thing", said the Mexican president.

"It's obvious that on a long-term perspective, President Trump is willing to effectively weaponize tariffs", Wen said.

Revealing more details of Mexico's strategy for rapidly putting the brakes on immigration, Ebrard said on Tuesday that border infrastructure on its southern frontier would be improved significantly.

To meet its commitments to Washington, Mexican migration facilities in the south need to be revamped, Ebrard added.

Twitter reactions to the possible hint at a new United States trade war target were not long in coming, with some noting the tariffs would have to be applied to the European Union bloc, while others mocked the very idea.

Over the weekend there was no sign that Mexico had started to harden the border, with migrants and locals crossing a river on rafts in sight of a busy official port of entry.
