Mexico migrant deal includes regional asylum plan - document


"What the world is exhausted of, and what I am exhausted of, is a president who consistently goes to war, verbal war, with our allies", Senator Bernie Sanders said on CNN.

Beyond these points made known in a joint statement, in recent days Trump has said in the aforementioned social network that there are parts of the deal that have not yet been made public, and went on to say that Mexico had agreed to buy large quantities of Farm products. Mexico's leaders showed they weren't willing to play along.

President López Obrador's government also said that it would take in several thousand people seeking asylum in the United States while their cases were...

"We told them - I think it was the most important achievement of the negotiations - 'let's set a time period to see if what Mexico is proposing will work, and if not, we'll sit down and see what additional measures [are needed]'".

But the deal announced Friday made no mention of the issue.

But Mexico has flatly denied the existence of any such undisclosed deal.

Mexico has insisted it has not agreed to the "safe third country" deal, and that doing so would require the approval of local lawmakers.

The U.S. president hailed the deal as a major breakthrough, but the Democrats sharply criticized his frequent resort to tariff threats and said numerous Mexican concessions were made months ago.

The EU exported 11.3 billion euros of wine in 2017 to third countries, 32 percent of which was to the US. "But that is what there is here".

The document that Trump waved at reporters laid out "a regional approach to burden-sharing in relation to the processing of refugee status claims to migrants"; talked of "45 days"; and said Mexico had committed to immediately examine its laws and rules to enable it to implement such an agreement. "This is being done to greatly reduce, or eliminate, Illegal Immigration coming from Mexico and into the United States", Trump added. Details of the agreement will be released shortly by the State Department.

Republicans previously pleaded with Trump to remove steel and aluminum tariffs on Canada and Mexico, and they've publicly anxious about the lasting impact of changes to global commerce as a result of Trump's multi-front trade wars.

Senate Democratic leader Chuck Schumer said there appeared to be little new in the deal, adding it was a "bogus" solution used by Trump to get out of an ill-conceived tariff threat.

Trump has spent the days since Friday's announcement defending the scope of the deal.

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. It also includes an agreement to publicly support the expansion of a program under which some asylum seekers are returned to Mexico as they wait out their cases.

Asylum seekers from El Salvador and Honduras first pass through Guatemala when fleeing their homes, while Cubans and Haitians often fly first to Panama before heading to the USA through Mexico.

Mr Ebrard said the United States had been insistent on this measure, and that they had wanted this to be implemented straight away.
