The United States and Mexico reached an 11th-hour deal on Friday to crack down on migration from Central America, with President Donald Trump relenting on threats to slap potentially devastating tariffs on the neighboring country. Mexico will "offer jobs, healthcare and education" to those people, according to the agreement.
US and Mexican officials discussed a deal calling for Mexico to sharply increase patrols of its border with Guatemala to curb migration, The Washington Post reported, with the deployment of 6,000 National Guard troops.
Mexico has agreed to deploy its National Guard to curb migration at its southern border, the State Department said in a statement detailing the pact.
However, he faced difficulties in moving forward with tariffs against Mexico.
"Our position has not changed".
The president has escalated his trade war despite opposition from the US Chamber of Commerce and other conservative business and agricultural groups.
Mnuchin, who said he participated in a call with Trump just before the deal was announced, said the president would retain the right to impose tariffs if Mexico did not keep its commitments.
"It is likely to have only a small impact on solving the root causes of Central American migration because numerous components are things Mexico is already doing", he continued. Lamy has criticized Trump's use of tariffs in the past.
Democrats blast Trump for forcing Mexico deal to cut illegal immigration
In late March, Trump threatened to shut the entire US-Mexico border if Mexico didn't immediately halt illegal immigration. The number of migrants detained or blocked at the border surged to 144,000 in May, triple the level a year earlier.

Mexico sends about 80% of its exports to the USA, giving Trump ample leverage to put pressure on López Obrador over a surge in migrants to the U.S. border.
The president had threatened to continue raising tariffs on Mexico to as high as 25 percent after the initial levies went into effect if Mexico didn't meet his demands to stop migrants from reaching the United States.
"The others have to find a way to stabilise the multilateral rules-based system", he said, "even if the U.S. want to kill it". It was unclear, however, what - if anything - Mexico had changed.
Mexican Foreign Minister Marcelo Ebrard, who quickly flew to Washington and had stayed ever since following Trump's tariff threat by Twitter on May 30, said he believed the two sides had found a compromise. "It's not a way to meet the humanitarian needs at the border", Pelosi said during her weekly press briefing on Wednesday.
He has made hard line efforts to reduce illegal immigration a cornerstone of his presidency and it is certain to be a key issue in his re-election bid next year.
"Mexico came through", said Senator Chuck Grassley, an Iowa Republican opposed to the tariffs, in a tweet soon after Mr Trump's announcement.
Pence was among the administration officials involved in the talks while the president was in Europe. "This is an historic night!" he tweeted.
"Now that that problem is solved, I'm sure we won't be hearing any more about it in the future", Schumer tweeted.
