Mexico says migration reduction measures to be reviewed after 45 days

Mexico says migration reduction measures to be reviewed after 45 days”

In February, Mr Trump declared an emergency on the US-Mexico border, saying it was necessary in order to tackle what he described as a crisis.

According to the Bloomberg report, the White House declined to comment or offer proof to back up Trump's tweet.

There is further uncertainty around Trump's comments on Saturday that Mexico had agreed to "immediately begin" buying "large quantities" of agricultural goods from USA farmers.

In the deal announced by Trump on Friday, Mexico agreed to use its national guard to keep migrants seeking asylum in the USA in Mexico.

He signaled Monday on the CNBC network that it was "another powerful tool" to control the surge of Central American migrants headed to the United States, something the USA has been "trying to get from Mexico for 20 years". 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. "Something that the Mexican ambassador said to me is, 'Well, we just can't have Mexico, we just can't have this many migrants in our country.' I said, 'Think about what it's like for our country'".

Republican colleagues of Trump in Congress have praised the president for concluding the deal, but opposition Democrats have criticized it as not containing much that is new.

US border officers caught over 132,000 people crossing from Mexico in May, the highest monthly level since 2006.

Mexican Foreign Minister Marcelo Ebrard wrote in a tweet on Monday morning that he would brief the Mexican President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador on the details of the agreement.

Ebrard said he thought Trump might be making a calculation based on Mexican agricultural imports when freed from the threat of tariffs.

But The New York Times, which cited unidentified officials from both countries, claimed the program's expansion was already agreed upon in December and that Mexico had already agreed in March to deploy its National Guard.

"We're very pleased with this agreement".

When Trump announced the deal Friday night, Senate Democratic leader Charles Schumer joked, "This is an historic night!"

President López Obrador's government also said that it would take in several thousand people seeking asylum in the U.S. while their cases were... But U.S. officials had already been working to expand the program, which has already led to the return of about 10,000 to Mexico, without Mexico's public embrace.

". The tariffs scheduled to be implemented by the US on Monday against Mexico are hereby indefinitely suspended - Mexico has agreed to take strong measures to stem the tide of Migration through Mexico. details of the agreement will be released shortly by the State Department". Without the threat, Trump has insisted, Mexico never would have acted.
