Trump's comments left his aides scrambling to insist that there are no secret components of an immigration deal struck last week between the United States and Mexico. This comes as House Democrats work to stop border wall construction.

Ebrard said the amount Mexico will spend on border security will be announced Friday, according to Reuters. I'm going to let Mexico make the announcement (on its content) at the right time, "said the president after removing from his bag a sheet of paper folded, which presumed as the alleged secret pact".

"If they elevate the numbers blueprint down, we received't salvage to, but right here is my possibility", Mr. Trump talked about.

The New York Times first reported on President Trump's deal with Mexico to get that country to do more to stem the flow of illegal immigrants into the U.S.in a somewhat odd fashion.

'Even now, the foreign minister of Mexico is saying that's not really the way the president describes is not really the way what we have agreed to, ' she said.

Trump had also threatened to increase tariffs to 10% in July, 15% in August, 20% in September, and 25% in October, if Mexico did not try to slow the flow of migrants. Can you tell us more about what he had to say on that subject? This raises the prospect that the president's frustration over immigration will soon reignite, possibly prompting renewed tariff threats against Mexico.

"Starting from today, and in the coming days, the deployment is going to progress rapidly", Ebrard said during President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador's regular morning news conference.

The MPP was first trialed in at the San Ysidro border crossing between San Diego and Tijuana, Mexico, but has so far expanded to the points of entry in Calexico, California, and El Paso, Texas.

Trump tweeted the story was "shockingly false and untrue" on Sunday, and that the Times "knew it was Fake News before it went out". So if Mexico agrees to this with the US, that would make Mexico this safe country for people to stop in, and it would stop people from being able to request asylum in the U.S.

Nevertheless, Ebrard said other Latin American countries should share the burden, something that the United States appeared to have agreed to.

Trump has made stopping illegal immigration a priority during his two years in office.

This comes as Mexico is stepping up efforts to slow migration from Central America to avoid US tariffs. The document has language suggesting that Mexico might consider changing its laws to facilitate a regional "safe third party" asylum system, subject to "domestic and worldwide legal obligations", in which migrants would have to apply for asylum in the first country they enter.
