But Mexican Foreign Minister Marcelo Ebrad announced part of the plan on June 10. He said Mexico had agreed to a 45-day timetable to prove that greater enforcement was effective in reducing mobility. If the plan fails, Mexico agrees to consider the long-standing U.S. demand for Mexico to become a safe third country for Central American refugees. Mexico had previously rejected that request.

This level will be maintained until Mexico substantially prevents immigrants from going north to the United States. This tariff was avoided by an immigration agreement between the two sides.
