"Migrants at the Southern Border will not be allowed into the United States until their claims are individually approved in court," he tweeted. "All will stay in Mexico."

The tweets came after The Washington Post reported the US had reached a deal with Mexico's incoming government that would represent a major overhaul of border policy.
