Secretary of State Michael R. Pompeo met today with Mexican Foreign Secretary Marcelo Luis Ebrard Casaubon in Mexico City. The two discussed shared efforts to stop illegal immigration, the status of the United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement, and our joint commitment to promote opportunity and economic prosperity in southern Mexico. Secretary Pompeo thanked Foreign Secretary Ebrard for Mexico’s increased immigration enforcement efforts, which initial indications suggest is leading to reduced flows of illegal immigrants arriving at the U.S. southern border.
