Mike Pompeo, the US secretary of state, is leaving the G20 in Buenos Aires early, and flying up to Mexico to hold talks with his Mexican counterpart, Marcelo Ebrard, on Sunday. On Monday the US homeland security secretary, Kirstjen Nielsen who on Friday made a highly unusual plea for police to be sent to reinforce the US-Mexico border will meet with more members of Mr Lopez Obradors cabinet.
