Mexico launches committee to implement US migration deal

"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", Trump wrote.

Contrary to Mexico's foreign minister Marcelo Ebrard's comments of no secret deal with the USA, as reported by New York Times, Jabin Botsford, Staff Photographer at The Washington Post, and VICE news, gave details of the deal waved at them recently.

Mexico offered, among other things, to step up efforts by deploying the newly created national guard along its southern border.

He said further talks would only come after seeing how well the current agreement performs over the course of 45 days, and stressed the need to prove the worth of measures, such as investing in development in Central American countries so that people do not feel the need to leave their homelands to escape poverty and violence.

However, he said other Latin American countries should share the burden, something that the United States appeared to have agreed to.

"Agriculture is a significant piece of the global economy and it simply doesn't make sense to leave it out", US Senator Chuck Grassley, the chairman of the tax and trade-focused Senate Finance Committee, said in April.

He acknowledged that in 45 days if the U.S. does not assess that progress has been made, the Trump administration probably will ask again for a "safe third" agreement. And the reason we had nothing is because Mexico felt that they didn't have to give us anything. Given that the USA immigration system is overwhelmed by asylum requests, the two countries have agreed that some will be resolved on Mexican soil.

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. The tariffs would gradually increase from 5 percent up to a ceiling of 25 percent by October if the Mexican government did not take action to curb illegal immigration into the United States, Trump said in a tweet. "We'll only move on to that if it's necessary", Pence told the Fox News Channel's "Special Report with Bret Baier" on Monday.

- President Trump renewed his promise to "do something" about French wine tariffs during a phone interview with CNBC on Monday, calling the tariff on American wine imposed by the French government "unfair".

Mexico's Foreign Minister Marcelo Ebrard speaks during a news conference at the National Palace in Mexico City, Mexico June 10, 2019. To meet its commitments to Washington, Mexican migration facilities in the south need to be revamped, he said.

But Mexico faces huge pressure to deliver immediate results at the US-Mexican border.
