Trump teases 'Phase two' of U.S.-Mexico border deal

Cuban migrants land on the Mexican side of the Suchiate River on the border with Guatemala after crossing on a raft near Ciudad Hidalgo Mexico early Tuesday

U.S. President Donald Trump had been threatening to impose 5% import tariffs on all Mexican goods starting on Monday if Mexico did not commit to do more to tighten its borders.

A photo of the page Trump was holding, taken by the Washington Post, said that if the usa determines not enough has been been done after 45 days "the Government of Mexico will take all necessary steps under the domestic law to bring the agreement into force". Details of the agreement will be released shortly by the State Department.

Under the deal signed on Friday, Mexico agreed to take steps to control the flow of people from Central America, including deploying 6,000 members of the country's National Guard across its border with Guatemala. They continue to say that everything that was agreed between the US and Mexico is on the table, is out there in public.

"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", Trump wrote. However, three Mexican officials said Saturday that they were not aware of any side accord in the works, and that agricultural trade hadn't been discussed during three days of negotiations in Washington that culminated in the joint communique between the countries last Friday.

"I$3 f the Democrats got together with me for 15 minutes, we could wipe out the loopholes and we wouldn't need anything from anybody", he said. This is being done to greatly reduce, or eliminate, Illegal Immigration coming from Mexico and into the United States. Have you seen any sign of them?

"But regardless, I mean, you knew enough of what it said".

"A lot of things have to happen in 45 days", Mr Ebrard said.

No one would challenge the notion that Washington has the right to take a tough stand during trade negotiations, including by threatening to employ tariffs against its economic partners, which is the way nearly all U.S. administrations have behaved in the past.

A crowd of thousands gathered on the streets of Tijuana on Saturday afternoon to hear López Obrador give a victory speech, the day after he inked a deal to discontinuance a long way from Trump's threatened tariffs on all Mexican items if Mexico did now not stem the migrant waft.

Mexico has previously withstood calls from Washington to be a safe haven for Central American asylum seekers crossing the country heading to the US. They include the deployment of 6000 Mexican soldiers to the southern border with Guatemala and allowing Central Americans to wait in Mexico until their asylum claims, most of which are fraudulent, are processed. But the long-term costs of such an approach could be very high, since it creates a climate of global instability and endangers United States relations with close allies, like Mexico, while threatening to escalate tensions with competitors like China.
