Mexico to ramp up southern border infrastructure to tackle migration

"Starting from today, and in the coming days, the deployment is going to progress rapidly", Foreign Minister Marcelo Ebrard said during a news conference on June 12 with President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador.

Tweeting earlier this week, Trump said tariffs are "a great negotiating tool" and "revenue producer".

If, after 45 days, the United States government "determines at its discretion" that the results aren't enough, the document says, "the Government of Mexico will take all necessary steps under domestic law to bring the agreement into force."The document gives the Mexican government another 45 days to achieve that". Mexican Foreign Minister Marcelo Ebrard first denied any such deal, but he and Obrador conceded Monday that the full scope of the agreement with the US had not yet been disclosed. The MPP, which was enacted on January 24, forces asylum-seekers traveling north into the United States to wait in Mexico while their claims are processed.

Mexico hopes "to prove that it is possible to regulate the flow (of migrants) with a set of measures", he said.

"The deal continues the Trump administration's commitment, the strongest by any administration in history to confront the tide of illegal immigration and many other problems along our southern border, including the drug trafficking issues that transit there", he said.

Trump said Mexico would soon disclose part of the agreement, adding that portion would have to be taken up by the Mexican Congress.

Vice President Mike Pence also referred to a regional approach, suggesting Guatemala could receive asylum seekers from its neighbours.

It also stated that Mexico had committed to doing everything it could immediately to become a safe third country. This is one page. On the subject of how Mexico would pay for the increased security, Obradror said the increased security would be in part paid for by the off-loading of the presidential jet and helicopters purchased by his predecessor. "We now have the capacity to do this full-throttle and engage this in a way that will make a fundamental difference in the calculus for those deciding to transit Mexico to try to get into the United States", he said".

Trump's actions haven't been limited to tariffs. "Mexico has already deported thousands, but along with plans for a new national guard presence, wants to maintain deal to avoid United States tariffs".

Aguilar says the troops' pending arrival already appears to be slowing the flow of migrants.
