Mexico releases copy of letter touted by Trump

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.

Marcelo Ebrard, Mexico’s top diplomat, presented the document to the Mexican Senate on Friday and said there was no other agreement from the negotiations with the U.S., Reforma reported.
