Trump says secret deal with Mexico takes effect when he wants

Mexico had no specific target for the reduction of migrant numbers, Ebrard said.

The president said that he doesn't expect the latter to be "a problem" but would reinstate tariffs if necessary.

Asked about the portion of the agreement that hasn't been announced yet, the president told reporters on Monday: "we have an agreement on something that they will announce very soon".

He has suggested that the US and Mexico agreed to things beyond what was written in the joint declaration Friday announcing Mexico would deploy thousands of national police to the border region, and would host some Central Americans who reached the USA but whom American authorities want to make wait outside the country as their immigration cases proceed. "Companies move out of Mexico and they move out of China and they'll come into the United States", Trump said. "I haven't heard that he is not", Trump said.

Trump over the weekend hinted at additional measures between the US and Mexico, after he vowed that Mexico would soon make "large" agricultural purchases from the U.S.as part of the deal on border security and illegal immigration. "And that was a big victory for us", he said.

Trump said he was going to slap steadily escalating tariffs on Mexico unless it did more to help with the border crisis, a threat with huge downside risks.

Stung by criticism that his deal to avert threatened Mexican tariffs mostly ramps up existing border efforts, President Donald Trump is insisting there's more to it than meets the eye.

Many had thought Trump was alluding to the idea of Mexico becoming a "safe third country", which would make it harder for asylum seekers who pass through the country from other places to claim refuge in the U.S.

Washington wants Mexico to be declared a safe third country in which asylum seekers would have to seek safe harbor instead of the United States, a demand Mexico has rejected in the past.

Under the agreement, Mexico will rapidly expand a programme under which migrants applying for asylum in the United States wait out the process in Mexico.

Ebrard said this week that Mexico's Senate would need to be consulted about any such changes.

Trump has spent the days since Friday's announcement defending the scope of the deal.

But The Washington Post on Tuesday published a separate report, citing Trump administration and Mexican officials as well as documents, giving a different perspective.

Through the agreement, the U.S.is slated to extend its policy of returning asylum applicants to Mexico while their claims are processed.

"We have been trying to get some of these Border Actions for a long time, as have other administrations, but were not able to get them, or get them in full, until our signed agreement with Mexico", he tweeted Sunday, adding during a call-in interview with CNBC Monday morning that officials had "talked about it for months and months and months", but couldn't reach agreement until the threat.

He said the agreement that he waved around would go into affect at his discretion.

Expressions by migrants of a fear of returning to their home countries triggers a USA immigration court process, which can take months or years to resolve due to backlogs in the system.

Over the weekend there was no sign that Mexico had started to harden the border, with migrants and locals crossing a river on rafts in sight of a busy official port of entry.
