If not, Mexico agrees to consider a long-standing USA demand that Central American asylum seekers crossing through Mexico apply for refuge there, not the United States, Ebrard said on Monday, dropping his previous opposition to that idea.
But on Monday, Mexican Foreign Secretary Marcelo Ebrard held up a paper and pointed to the previously announced details, including Mexico's deployment of 6,000 troops to its border with Guatemala to thwart the surge of Central American migrants heading to the United States.
Mexico said Tuesday it has launched a committee to implement its deal with the United States on curbing undocumented migration in return for a reprieve from President Donald Trump's threatened tariffs.
This comes as Mexico steps up efforts to slow migration from Central America, to avoid USA tariffs.
The deal lays out "a regional approach to burden-sharing in relation to the processing of refugee status claims to migrants", the document said.
President Donald Trump gives an address at the White House on May 22,2019, side-by-side with wine glasses. Since many travel with children who can not be held in detention longterm - they are released into the United States to await the resolution of their asylum cases, something the president calls " catch and release".
Besides, the Mexico's Foreign Minister, Marcelo Ebrard had been quoted saying on his Monday's (June 11th) speech that such measures to involve Brazil and Panama into their asylum deal would require, if number of illegal migrants entering into U.S. soil through its southern border failed to decline within a timeframe of one and a half months.
"It's obvious that on a long-term perspective, President Trump is willing to effectively weaponize tariffs", Wen said. "Because the reality is that a very big effort needs to be made", he said.
Expressions by migrants of a fear of returning to their home countries triggers a US immigration court process, which can take months or years to resolve due to backlogs in the system.
"Mexico will try very hard, and if they do that, this will be a very successful agreement for both the United States and Mexico!" the president said.
Revealing more details of Mexico's strategy for rapidly putting the brakes on immigration, Ebrard said on Tuesday that border infrastructure on its southern frontier would be improved significantly. They have also blasted the Trump administration's handling of the migrants, calling it a humanitarian disaster.
"We're going to sit down at some point with the Democrats, we're going to work it all out", he told reporters.
Six-thousand Mexican troops are headed south to the Guatemalan border to slow migrants bound for the US.
