Mexico’s foreign minister Marcelo Ebrard has also talked up the prospects of an agreement with the US.
Ebrard is in Washington on a diplomatic mission to prevent America hiking tariffs on Mexican imports, as threatened by Donald Trump late last week.
He’s told reporters that his officials will present a new proposal to control immigration from Mexico to the US tomorrow. It may help placate the White House, which wants the flow of migrants curbed.
Ebrard told a news conference that talks have already been productive, pledging:
“We’re going to find common ground, I think… We are ready.
