"Mexico also commits to immediately begin examining domestic laws and regulations with a view to identifying any changes that may be necessary to bring into force and implement such an agreement", it says.

Trump said he had meant to make the announcement next week, "but I'd rather announce it now".

If enforcement measures are not successful after 45 days, Mexico has also agreed to consider making itself a "safe third country".
