The Mexican government has released a copy of a deal that Donald Trump has waved to journalists this week that he calls "the agreement everyone says I do not have." According to the president, the document describes previously unannounced immigration rebates. agreed as part of an agreement between the US and Mexico that was negotiated to reduce the number of South American immigrants arriving at the US border and to prevent Mexico from charging fees.
The text of a letter reveals a commitment to start discussions on a future agreement – essentially to reach an agreement on negotiating an agreement ̵
In the letter, Mexico is committed to exploring its current immigration control practices and to identifying the legal changes that may be needed to implement the negotiated agreement. It also sets a time frame for assessing the effect of the changes agreed at the beginning of June.
Under the threat of the president to escalate tariffs for all Mexican goods starting at 5%, the two sides have announced they will take steps to deal with immigrants and asylum seekers. a trip to the United States from South America. The US has promised to speed up the processing of asylum applications; Mexico has pledged to deploy 6,000 members of the National Guard, mostly at the Guatemalan border.
According to the letter, Mexico agreed that if, after 45 days, this deployment and all the other measures he undertook "did not achieve enough results in coping with the flow of migrants to the southern border" in the eyes of the United States, Mexico. will take "all necessary steps" to bring into force the negotiated agreement within the next 45 days.
The letter was presented to the Mexican Senate on Friday by Mexican Foreign Minister Marcello Ebard and was first published by the Mexican newspaper Reform. It seems to contradict a series of tweets Trumps sent after the publication of a joint statement describing the terms of the deal in which the president claims that some elements of the agreement were not publicly disclosed but would have been "They were announced at the right time."
Ebrard, who previously contradicted Trump, saying there was no secret or unpaid deal between the two sides, repeated that there was no other agreement on Friday, according to Reform. Ebard said the two countries would rethink the situation of migrants on the 45-day mark. , Lopez Obrador proposes prison director Francisco Gardounio as his deputy, the AP said as part of the "repression of illegal immigration across its territory in response to US pressure."
The deal, published on Friday, is definitely the same as Trump waved reporters on Tuesday, as it contains many of the same paragraphs that were inadvertently revealed when Washington Post photographer Jabin Botsford improved photos of paper. As he waved the letter, Trump claimed that this was the "agreement that everyone says I do not have," and later beats his pocket, holding the paper, and saying "right here is the story."
The document puts rest (or at least must) on Trump's claim that there are secret elements of the deal the US has reached with Mexico, but also points to a future deal that could be a Trump victory. 19659014] We fully signed and documented another very important part of the agreement on immigration and security with Mexico that the United States wanted to gain for many years. It will be revealed in the not too distant future and will need a vote by the Legislature of Mexico! ..

They do not disclose any new commitments from Mexico and more or less agree with the joint statement published on 7 June. giving priority to its southern border. He also said that "those who cross the southern border of the United States will seek asylum will be quickly returned to Mexico where they can wait for their asylum applications to be handed over."
The agreement does not mention anything about the non-imposition of the Mexican goods tariff that Trump has threatened and the most is an agreement to hold discussions about a potential future deal .
These discussions will give the Trump administration another chance to pursue a future deal containing what Matthew Iglesias described earlier this week as a "Dream Scenario" for Trump:
The dreamy scenario for Mexico is to sign "The agreement with the United States. By concluding such an agreement, the United States could simply send the Central American contingent, which was found to have migrated from Mexico back to Mexico. Any asylum applications should be made there, not the United States. Mexico is reluctant to do so because the country is not really safe from the kind of violence people are fleeing in Central America and because Mexico is afraid to be overloaded by the flow of potential migrants. hinting at himself, defining Mexico as a safe third party, will require a vote by the Mexican legislature, and the success of such a proposal is far from certain – as Dara Lind says, Mexico has no "interest in it." According to reports, the Mexican authorities have rejected the US negotiators' push for progress on the third issue of a safe country as part of the negotiations leading to the joint declaration.
It seems, however, that this may be the unannounced element of the recent agreement Trump has annoyed – one who, as he said, "the US wants to get it for many years." to define himself as a safe third party, Trump will have a huge victory. Even if negotiators fail to make the country safe for asylum seekers, Trump is likely to announce what progress has been made as a victory ( as it did after the release of the Joint Declaration ) will use this progress to expel his immigration mandate in the presidential election in 2020.
