Trump's secret deal with Mexico news to them

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".

Pompeo on Monday would not go into specifics about what new measures Mexico agreed to during the recent talks, aside from saying that it agreed to send an additional 6,000 Mexican National Guard troops to the border in an effort to deter migrants from entering the USA illegally.

President Trump announced Monday that his administration has inked a secret agreement with Mexico on immigration enforcement that will be unveiled in the "not too distant future".

But on Monday, President Trump warned that tariffs were not off the table completely, saying that if the part of the deal which required approval by Mexico's congress was not passed, the tariffs would be reinstated.

With his threatened Mexican tariffs now on the backburner, President Donald Trump was looking to claim victory even as some of his Democratic challengers for the White House criticized him for overselling a deal that mostly ramps up existing efforts.

Trump has long criticized Mexico for not doing enough to cut the number of people arriving at the southern USA border and ahead of Friday's announcement had vowed to impose 5% tariffs, with future escalations, unless the Mexican government took more action to curb the surge of migrants. It has also pledged to reinforce its southern border with Guatemala with 6,000 members of its National Guard militarized police force.

Ebrard also said there was no agreement between the United States and Mexico to buy more agricultural products under the accord, despite Trump saying over the weekend that Mexico had agreed to buy "large quantities" from USA farmers. "So we didn't bring it up, but most people know that answer". The White House declined to comment, according to Bloomberg.

In an interview on CNBC, Trump defended his use of tariffs as a negotiating tool that forced Mexico to reach the deal with the US. As a part of the agreement, Mexico not only allows those returned from the U.S. to stay in Mexico but also must offer them work permits, health care and education, the CBS report says.

The tweets came amid questions about just how much of the deal - announced with great fanfare Friday - was really new. And now he appears to be doing just that, hinting that Mexico has secretly agreed to new rules that would mean asylum seekers wouldn't be in the United States while they await a ruling.

US stocks were higher on Monday after the deal, easing worries about the impact of another trade war on the global economy.

"Sonia Hernández (the mayor of Suchiate) told the newspaper Milenio that the government asked authorities in Suchiate to provide the land for the new base", the Daily News reported and added that the "municipal government spent 1.2 million pesos (U.S. $61,000) to purchase a three-hectare parcel of land in Nuevo Dorado, a small town nine kilometers north of the Mexico-Guatemala border".

"In the meeting with the vice president of the United States, they were insistent on the safe third-country issue", Ebrard told a press conference. U.S. Border Patrol last week announced it had apprehended more than 132,000 people at the border in May, including a record 84,542 adults and children traveling together, straining federal resources and leaving officials struggling to provide basic housing and health care.
