The proposed tariffs would have increased 5% per month, maxing out at 25%, until Mexico brought the flow of illegal immigration to a stop. It's very simple. It's right here.

"You never know with that government in Beijing what exactly their next move will be", Moore said.

U.S. President Donald Trump held up a piece of paper along the lawn at the White House Tuesday, saying it was his new immigration deal with Mexico that contains mystery provisions, even as Mexico says it has no idea what he is talking about.

Speaking later Monday on TV network CNBC, Trump denied that, and said the secret part of the deal included "a very powerful tool".

Ebrard said he thought Trump might be making a calculation based on Mexican agricultural imports when freed from the threat of tariffs.

"We have fully signed and documented another very important part of the Immigration and Security deal with Mexico, one that the U.S. has been asking about getting for many years. That's the difference; they couldn't get it", he continued.

"It's sad that, when you think of it, Mexico is doing is more for the United States, as of now, than Congress".

"They have been working very hard".

"We would start conversations about what they would like, which is for Mexico to become a safe third country", Ebrard said on a Mexican radio programme.

He said the agreement that he waved around would go into affect at his discretion. The tariffs were slated to go into effect Monday and continue to increase each month, reaching 25 percent by October 1, 2019. But when migrants come over, they also hop on rafts. "But if they're not, we're going to have to participate in this kind of discussion".

"But we purposely said we wouldn't mention it for a little while".

But Ebrard, holding up a paper and pointing to the previously announced details, said, "There is no other thing beyond what I have just explained".

"I would be surprised if he didn't go, I think he is going".

The document contained references to a regional asylum plan, which would involve several Latin American countries processing migrants' asylum claims in order to stave off United States tariffs.

Trump announced on June 7 that the United States and Mexico reached an agreement about stemming migration.

Speaker Nancy Pelosi got in a shot at Trump's negotiations with Mexico during a talk at the Peterson Foundation Tuesday.

Ebrard also said there was no agreement between the United States and Mexico to buy more agricultural products under the accord, despite Trump saying over the weekend that Mexico had agreed to buy "large quantities" from U.S. farmers.

Last week, the nations signed a last-minute deal to avert the implementation of the tariffs Trump slapped on all Mexican goods.

The deal, in part, according to a joint declaration issued Friday after a meeting between Trump and Lopez Obrador, said Mexico agreed to deploy 'its National Guard throughout Mexico, giving priority to its southern border'.

The comment came as he fended off criticism over a New York Times report that said the key terms of the migration deal had in fact been agreed on months ago.
