Trump claims undisclosed component to US-Mexico migrant deal, Mexico contradicts him

A senior administration official, speaking on condition of anonymity to share details of closed-door talks, said Mexico had expressed openness to the idea during negotiations, and said the two countries would continue to discuss the issue over the coming months.

There has been confusion and consternation on both sides of the border after Trump earlier Monday claimed the United States signed what he calls "another very important part of the Immigration and Security deal with Mexico". "I think they probably got it the probably from somebody who worked here and said how well they were doing", he said, without elaborating, before arguing that his deal with Mexico was new.

'It's a very simple agreement.

A day before, Trump said the June 8 report from the paper had been proven to be "shockingly false and untrue", and accused the paper of knowingly publishing it as such. For a long time, for many years, people tried to get what we got in a period of a couple of days, and they couldn't get it.

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". "They are truly The Enemy of the People!"

Mexico also agreed to take back more Central American asylum seekers who cross their territory en route to the U.S. That is an expansion of the Migration Protection Protocols, a program that the U.S. announced previous year that has been tried on a small basis but will now be in effect borderwide.

US border officers apprehended more than 132,000 people crossing from Mexico in May, the highest monthly level since 2006. "You're going to reach a point where Mexicans say, 'Enough is enough.' The question is, when?" I'm not going to say one way or another, ' he said.

"Mexico, in turn, has agreed to take strong measures to stem the tide of Migration through Mexico, and to our Southern Border".


The United States 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 long rejected.

Under the deal, they said Mexico also agreed to expand what is known as the Remain in Mexico policy, which allows the U.S.to send back Central American asylum-seeking migrants to Mexico while their cases make their way through immigration courts.

McAleenan added that "Mexico came to the table with real proposals".

It has been two days since President Trump claimed in a tweet that there was a secret agreement between the USA and Mexican governments, in addition to the deal that was announced Friday to avert Trump's threatened tariffs.

He said the tax on those goods would increase each month the problem persisted until October, when it would cap at 25 per cent. It has also pledged to reinforce its southern border with Guatemala with 6,000 members of its National Guard militarized police force. "That will be announced at the appropriate time", Trump continued.

The claim was contradicted on Monday by Mexico's foreign minister, who said that Mexico was already planning to send 6,000 National Guard troops to the Mexico-Guatemala border but that, as a result of the deal with the US announced Friday, that deployment is now happening faster.

The president called the story "fake news" and insisted the deal was brand new.
