Trump's paper hints at deal to share burden on refugees with Mexico

Cuban migrants land on the Mexican side of the Suchiate River on the border with Guatemala after crossing on a raft near Ciudad Hidalgo Mexico early Tuesday

The neighbouring countries reached a deal last week and co-signed the document on June 7 2019.

The U.S. secured an agreement with Mexico on Friday, averting tariffs in exchange for increased border security.

So they say there's no secret agreement and that in these 45 days, they're going to work and show the USA that they can make the progress that they need to.

Trump, appearing at the White House on Wednesday with Poland's President Andrzej Duda, didn't elaborate on what could unfold in the next phase. I didn't do it on goal.

"If they elevate the numbers blueprint down, we received't salvage to, but right here is my possibility", Mr. Trump talked about. Before travelling to Iowa for a series of rallies on Tuesday, Trump addressed reporters on the South Lawn of the White House and pulled the sheet of paper from his jacket pocket.

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. The suspense was cut short, however, when photos of some of the visible text began circulating online after photographers managed to snap photos of the paper made transparent by sunlight.

The document that Trump waved at reporters laid out "a regional approach to burden-sharing in relation to the processing of refugee status claims to migrants"; talked of "45 days"; and said Mexico had committed to immediately examine its laws and rules to enable it to implement such an agreement. 'This is one page of a very long and very good agreement for both Mexico and the United States'.

According to Mexican news outlet Excelsior, the Secretary of Public Security, Alfonso Durazo, said that the National Guard will grow to around 150,000 members within the next six years. For the Times, though, it was as if Trump's deft ploy was not the real story.

Foreign Minister Marcelo Ebrard, who led Mexico's negotiating team in Washington, repeated his denial that there is a secret annex to the deal. However, that centrepiece of the deal was settled in December and not a result of the recent 5 percent sanctions threat.

Over the weekend, Trump announced a deal with Mexico had been reached in order to hold off tariffs that were set to go into affect today. If Mexico were designated "a safe third country", those crossing its southern border would have to seek asylum and settle there. But the long-term costs of such an approach could be very high, since it creates a climate of global instability and endangers U.S. relations with close allies, like Mexico, while threatening to escalate tensions with competitors like China.
