Mexico’s government on Friday released a copy of a letter that President Trump touted in front of cameras earlier this week in teasing additional details of a deal reached with the country to stem the flow of migrants heading toward the U.S.
The letter, first published by the Mexican newspaper Reforma, states that the U.S. and Mexico “will immediately begin discussions to establish definitive terms for a binding bilateral agreement to further address burden-sharing and the assignment of responsibility for processing refugee claims of migrants.”
The article goes on to state the following:
The document, signed and dated June 7, states that under such an agreement both countries would commit to “accept the return and process refugee status claims, of third-party nationals who have crossed that party’s territory to arrive at a port of entry or between ports of entry of the other party.”
It adds that if the U.S. determines after 45 days from the joint declaration reached last week that the measures adopted by Mexico “have not sufficiently achieved results in addressing the flow of migrants to the southern border” then Mexico will take steps to bring the agreement into force within another 45 days.
