Contractors given timetable to pitch to build border wall with Mexico
Mexican leaders scolded their American counterparts on Thursday for President Trump's new immigration policies, using an initial meeting to register their displeasure and demand that the USA not increase the number of people deported to Mexico.
However, President Trump stated otherwise in the White House, ensuring that military operations would be used for the deportation of undocumented immigrants.
A high-level USA delegation is trying to sell new deportation policies to Mexico.
But Maureen Meyer, an expert at the Washington Office on Latin America, a USA human rights advocacy organization, said "relations have been severely strained by the Trump administration's rhetoric and actions".
Mexico may not want those million criminals back, but it really has nothing to say about it.
The new plans, which were announced on Tuesday, instruct all border enforcement agents to swiftly detain and deport undocumented migrants.
"There will be no, repeat no mass deportations", Kelly told a news conference in Mexico City after meeting with Mexican ministers.
US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson landed in Mexico City on Wednesday afternoon.
According to reports, the foreign minister has previously identified states including Iowa, Texas and Wisconsin as possible targets for retaliatory tariffs.
If the United States taxes imports from Mexico, there will be a response that "hits them where it hurts," La Jornada and Reforma reported Videgaray as saying, based on recordings obtained of a closed-door session with lawmakers on Wednesday.
Mexico's Interior Minister Miguel Osorio Chong expressed disagreement Thursday "with some of the measures announced by the USA government that have implications for our country and compatriots". Tillerson will also visit staff at the U.S. Embassy.
Mr Kelly, Mr Tillerson and their Mexican counterparts spoke before the two Americans planned to meet with Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto, an outspoken opponent of Mr Trump's immigration plans, which include making Mexico pay for a wall along the border.
"This group is exactly who we want in Mexico". Non-Mexicans crossing the border would also be prioritized and instead of being flown to their country of origin, they would be sent to Mexico.
Nevertheless, White House spokesman Sean Spicer said in Washington US-Mexico ties were "phenomenal right now" and that he expected a "great discussion".
As Mexican officials rushed to contact the State Department for more information, the timing of the guidelines' release threatened to severely hinder what could have been a diplomatic make-up session, US and Mexican officials and analysts said.
A group of protesters gathered outside Mexico's Ministry of Foreign Relations shouting slogans outside and holding banners that said "The secretaries are not welcome", and "Stop Donald Trump, Hate, Racism, Ignorance".
Speaking after the meeting, Mr Tillerson said he and Mexican officials had discussed deep differences between their countries.
