Trump defended the agreement on Sunday against criticism there were no major new commitments to stem a flow of mostly Central American migrants crossing into the United States, many seeking asylum protections, and pledged to provide additional details soon.
Mexico will also take "decisive action" to dismantle human trafficking along the border, including their "illicit financial and transportation networks", according to a joint statement from the countries released by the State Department on June 7.
The move puts to an end - for now - a threat that had sparked dire warnings from members of Trump's own party, who warned the tariffs would damage the economy, drive up prices for consumers and imperil an updated North American trade pact.
Trump lashed out at what he called "another false report in the failing New York Times" tweeting on Sunday that "We have been trying to get some of these Border Actions for a long time, as have other administrations, but were not able to get them, or get them in full, until our signed agreement with Mexico". Now, he said, "I have full confidence, especially after speaking to their President yesterday, that they will be very cooperative and want to get the job properly done".
"This is likely to have only a small impact on solving the root causes of Central American migration because numerous components are things Mexico had already said they would do", Schumer said on Twitter.
"There is now going to be great cooperation between Mexico & the US, something that didn't exist for decades", Trump tweeted Sunday.

Mexico will also reinforce its southern border with Guatemala with thousands of National Guard officers. "They might have accelerated the timetable, but by and large the President achieved nothing except to jeopardise the most important trading relationship that the United States of America has". Contrary to those arguments, there were no real new measures that Mexico has agreed to in this deal, instead, the best that can be said is that they agreed to get it done faster, how much faster is a question we don't have an answer to.
It was unclear whether Mr. Trump believed that the agreement truly represented new and broader concessions, or whether the president understood the limits of the deal but accepted it as a face-saving way to escape from the political and economic consequences of imposing tariffs on Mexico. This after Foreign Minister Marcelo Ebrard reported that he proposed to the USA government to send 6,000 elements of the National Guard to the border with Guatemala, in the midst of negotiations for tariffs.
Murtaugh applauded Trump for using "the threat of tariffs to bring Mexico to the table" and "showing that he is willing to use every tool in his toolbox to protect the American people".
That said, the Wisconsin lawmaker added, "I think he used them as leverage in this situation brilliantly".
Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer said the deal was "likely to be one of the President's typical, bogus solutions" to justify retreat from the tariffs, which had prompted a fierce backlash from business interests and many Republicans. And while the "third safe country" agreement did not make it into the deal, it is something officials plan to continue to discuss in the coming months.
