No 'Military Forces' Will Be Used In Deportations, Trump Officials Say

Thursday's talks - which were also attended by Homeland Security Secretary John Kelly and Mexican Interior Secretary Miguel Angel Osorio Chong - come just days after the Department of Homeland Security released a pair of memos that detailed how it would implement President Trump's January 25 executive orders on immigration.

Top Trump administration officials are on their way to Mexico to talk through their controversial new deportation guidelines, as the White House claimed in spite of evidence to the contrary that everything "is phenomenal" between the countries.

But White House spokesman Sean Spicer insisted Wednesday that Washington has "a very healthy and robust relationship with the Mexican government".

Trump has continually pushed for his election promise to construct a border wall between the two countries with Mexico footing the bill.

Speaking after the meeting, Mr Tillerson said he and Mexican officials had discussed deep differences between their countries. "We listened closely and carefully to each other and we respectfully and patiently raised our respective concerns".

Kelly and Tillerson were more measured in their words than either the Mexicans or Trump, who on Thursday said a military operation was being carried out to clear "bad dudes" such as gang members and drug lords from the United States.

Videgaray said Wednesday that Mexico had no reason to accept unilateral decisions imposed by another country.

The visit by Mr Tillerson and Mr Kelly took place soon after announcements of a United States crackdown on undocumented migrants that will involve automatically sending people back to Mexico when they cross the border illegally - even if they are not Mexican.

The reason is simple: A 20 percent tariff on Mexican imports would be a disaster for the Mexican economy, destroying jobs and driving numerous jobless to seek work - legally or illegally - in the United States.

During the 2016 presidential campaign, Trump referred to Mexican immigrants in the United States as rapists and criminals.

Trump's stance has strained previously good US-Mexican relations, said Maureen Meyer, an expert at the Washington Office on Latin America, a US human rights advocacy organization.

Donald Trump has sent US-Mexico relations into a tailspin.

Videgaray said the Mexican government would not hesitate to turn to the United Nations to denounce actions by the United States.

"We will not accept it, because there's no reason why we should, and because it is not in the interests of Mexico", added Videgaray. "This is not going to be resolved in three days".

Two memos released by the US Homeland Security Department on Tuesday said the federal government will start expedited deportation of immigrants captured at US borders.

In a call meant to mend fences, Trump volunteered to send USA troops to Mexico to fight drug cartels and crime. "He has had missteps that are placing him against the weight of reality". For Tillerson, the deportation change is yet another issue fueling tensions between the U.S. and Mexico that he likely will confront on his visit this week - along with questions about the wall, U.S. -Mexico trade and more. "But not under the administration of Donald Trump", Holman said. "But we have to recognize that, yes, we have strategic advantages and strengths in this process of dialogue and eventual negotiation". He observed, "Mexico needs the United States and the United States needs Mexico". If they couldn't be deported to their home country, many would be sent to wait in Mexico.

He also stressed that Mexico did not seek a row with its northern neighbor.
