NYT Dismisses Trump's Successful Mexico Deal

NYT Dismisses Trump's Successful Mexico Deal”

While the president did not speak about the contents of the document, photographers were able to take images of the piece of paper, which revealed some of the proposals.

Foreign Minister Marcelo Ebrard, who led Mexico's negotiating team in Washington, repeated his denial that there is a secret annex to the deal.

Other details included a reference to "45 days" - the amount of time for Mexico to show it can reduce the flow of migrants across the border with the U.S. before other Latin American countries got involved in processing asylum claims.

Marcelo Ebrard, Mexico's foreign minister, has already declared Mexico had 45 days to strengthen its presence at its southern border in order to stem the flow of asylum seekers making their way north.

Mexican officials convinced Trump to delay his demand for a "safe third country" agreement and give them 45 days to show that the other measures in the agreement will work.

On CNN Tuesday night, Chris Cuomo was losing patience for Trump's theatrics.

Mexico says about 600,000 migrants traveled through the country to the US border between January and May.

Migrants from Honduras cross the Rio Bravo river to enter illegally into the United States to turn themselves in to request asylum in El Paso, Texas, U.S.as seen from Ciudad Juarez, Mexico June 11, 2019. Bearing the headline, "Mexico Agreed to Take Border Actions Months Before Trump Announced Tariff Deal", the story informs us that Trump was being overly dramatic and that his announcement of a deal was inconsequential.

I was in Juarez, Mexico last month assessing the impacts of the returns program - which swept up over 11,000 people, raising serious concerns about their access to fair process in the US.

The deal ended a proposed 5% tariff on imports from Mexico, which Trump said was punishment for an influx of migrants "coming into our Country from Mexico". Details of the agreement will be released shortly by the State Department.

'I don't want to say and you can just figure it out yourselves.

So far, there's no sign of the Mexican National Guard where CBS News' Manuel Bojorquez is stationed at the nation's southern border - but there's plenty of activity at checkpoints operated by immigration agents and military police.

Mexico's leftist government 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.

After providing a detailed report to the Senate about his conversations with US officials in Washington last week, Ebrard on Wednesday said a phone call he had with US President Donald Trump at the conclusion of the negotiations lasted five minutes.
