Amid speculation about the contents of Mexico'sdeal to curb migration in order to avert President Donald Trump's threat of tariffs, Foreign Minister Marcelo Ebrard said he had rebuffed the USA demand for such a measure, but agreed to revisit the matter in 45 days. "I'm sure Mexican negotiators would have conveyed that message" of any additional agreements to the Mexican public.
Ebrard said Lopez Obrador would discuss the deal during his morning news conference. If implemented, the tariffs would have been disruptive at a time when USA growth is perhaps slowing, been an economic gut-punch to an allied country whose stability is important to us, and probably precipitated a congressional revolt against the policy.
Any deal still has to be approved by Mexico's Congress before it can become law.
Another portion of the deal would have to be ratified by Mexican lawmakers.
Asylum seekers who cross into the US will be quickly returned to Mexico where they'll wait for their claims to be resolved; the USA agreed to accelerate adjudication.
Under the deal, Mexico will expand deployment of its national guard throughout the country, "giving priority to its southern border", according to a joint statement from the two countries.
During the talks last week, Mexican sources said officials were resisting safe third country status, which would mean migrants seeking asylum would have to make such a request in the first safe country they crossed. European Union tariffs for imported wine are higher than those implemented by the United States. "And one urgent one at this moment is immigration", said Martha Barcena.
"The Tariffs scheduled to be implemented by the USA on Monday, against Mexico, are hereby indefinitely suspended", Trump said on Twitter on Friday evening. "What did we win?"
Washington wants Mexico to be declared a safe third country in which asylum seekers would have to seek safe harbor instead of the United States, a demand Mexico has rejected in the past.
Mexico's Ebrard referred to Mexico's resistance to that demand over the weekend and said that the United States began with demands for "drastic measures" but they were ultimately able to reach "middle ground". "This is being done to greatly reduce, or eliminate, Illegal Immigration coming from Mexico and into the United States".
"Now that that problem is solved, I'm sure we won't be hearing any more about it in the future", Schumer added.
