Hence, effectively Mexico is given around the 90-days period to stem the flow of migrants to the USA border. "Mexico is open to negotiations if we fail, but we are not going to fail".

"It's sad that, when you think of it, Mexico is doing is more for the United States, as of now, than Congress". President Trump spoke Tuesday about a part of that deal, which still needs to be approved by Mexico's legislature. "This is one page of a very long and very good agreement for both Mexico and the United States", he said, crediting his threat to slap tariffs on the country for what he has called a breakthrough on border security.

Later on Tuesday in a press conference, Mexico's foreign minister Marcelo Ebrard confirmed that there would be a 45-day deadline to reduce US bound migrants.

Asked for details, Trump demurred.


Close-up photographs of the paper reveal that it discusses "burden sharing in relation to the processing of refugees" - likely a reference to some kind of policy that would keep migrants seeking asylum in Mexico or elsewhere instead of the U.S.

"High tariff rates constitute the single most restrictive barrier to USA wine exports", the group says on its website.

'If they bring the numbers way down, we won't have to use it.

Many migrants say they are afraid of returning to their home countries, which triggers a US immigration court process that can take months or years to resolve due to backlogs in the system.


In his letter to Mexico's Senate, Ebrard says US officials repeatedly pushed Mexico to agree to the safe third country provision, but that Mexico did not accept.

It said Mexico agreed to examine domestic laws and regulations with a view to possible changes in order to implement a migrant deal. "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. To meet its commitments to Washington, Mexican migration facilities in the south need to be revamped, he said.

He further said the wineries themselves had approached him to complain about having to pay to import their wines into France.

"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".


Taking questions alongside President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador at a news conference, Ebrard said Mexico was accelerating deployment of its National Guard, a militarized police force, along the border with Guatemala and that migrants entering Mexico would have to register with authorities.
