USA signed ‘another very important part’ of immigration deal with Mexico

Mexico's peso rallied against the dollar in response to news that the US had dropped threatened tariffs on imports from the country

If not, Mexico agrees to consider a long-standing USA demand that Central American asylum seekers crossing through Mexico apply for refuge there, not the United States, Ebrard said on Monday, dropping his previous opposition to that idea. "And, specifically, the Democrats, they have to get their act together", he told reporters at the White House. And in here is everything you want to talk about.

Trump said he was going to slap steadily escalating tariffs on Mexico unless it did more to help with the border crisis, a threat with huge downside risks.

Mexico's foreign minister said Monday that the deal doesn't include any secret provisions.

'We had nothing two weeks ago.

"Mexico has agreed to take strong measures to stem the tide of Migration through Mexico, and to our Southern Border", he said. For a long time, for many years, people tried to get what we got in a period of a couple of days, and they couldn't get it.

"They wanted something else totally different to be signed".

He continued to hammer the point that until recently there was no arrangement with Mexico. "I can tell you that the team here at the State Department believes full-throatedly that this an important set of agreements, important set of understandings, one that we'll continue to work on". We had nothing, and the reason we had nothing is because Mexico felt they didn't have to give us anything.

He said the agreement that he waved around would go into affect at his discretion. The tariffs were slated to go into effect Monday and continue to increase each month, reaching 25 percent by October 1, 2019.

He has called for denying citizenship to US-born children whose parents are without documents, and authorised law enforcement officials to investigate the immigration status of anyone they stopped.

Stung by criticism that the agreement mostly ramps up border protection efforts already underway, Trump on Monday hinted at other, secret agreements he says will soon be revealed.

But Marcelo Ebrard, Mexico's foreign minister, said on Monday that "there is no other thing beyond [the previously announced terms]". I'm not going to say one way or another, ' he said.

Discussions would take place with Brazil, Panama and Guatemala - the countries now used by migrants as transit points - to see if they could share the burden of processing asylum claims.

If Mexico fails to curb migration in 45 days, other countries will be drawn into the matter.

Mexico will also require that asylum seekers remain in the country while their claims are prosecuted in the US.

Speaker Nancy Pelosi got in a shot at Trump's negotiations with Mexico during a talk at the Peterson Foundation Tuesday.

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

Last month Trump threatened he would impose a 5 per cent tariff on Mexican imports if the country didn't assist in stopping Central American migrants from flowing into the USA illegally.

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

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.

President Donald Trump said on Monday the United States had signed another portion of an immigration and security deal with Mexico that would need to be ratified by Mexican lawmakers.

Trump's tweets came amid questions about just how much of the deal - announced with great fanfare Friday - was actually new.
