Trump, for his part, withdrew a threat to impose a five percent tariff on all Mexican imports, beginning Monday and escalating to 25 percent by October.
Commentators suggest this is the "safe third country" arrangement, under which migrants would have to apply first for asylum in Mexico, rather than the United States, and be turned away if they do not. The official spoke on condition of anonymity to share details of closed-door talks.
Mr Ebrard said the USA facet also wished to designate Mexico as a "protected third nation", which would have required Mexico to soak up asylum seekers heading for the U.S. and direction of their claims by itself soil.

The U.S. -Mexico migration agreement reached last week includes a regional asylum plan and Mexico's commitment to examine and potentially change its laws, according to a copy held up to journalists by President Donald Trump on Tuesday.

Aside from the significant uncertainty that recurrent negotiations over possible tariffs will create for businesses and their supply chains on both sides of the border, the possibility of tariffs will also complicate the Mexican leadership's political future.
Mr Ebrard said the U.S. had been insistent on this measure. That's a lot. And we're moving along very rapidly.
"It won't stop migration because, one way or another, migrants are going to get through".
