U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson and Department of Homeland Security Secretary John Kelly will meet Mexican officials February 22 and February 23.

Tillerson and Kelly will meet over Wednesday night and Thursday with Mexico's President Enrique Peña Nieto, as well as the Mexican ministers of foreign relations, finance, interior, national defense and the navy.

"It's a non-starter", a Mexican official familiar with the situation said, switching to English for emphasis. Among the issues they will discuss are border security, trade and law enforcement, said the statement.

No detailed agenda has yet been released for the Mexico visit.

Mexico's Foreign Minister Luis Videgaray said on Wednesday that the country "will not accept new unilateral" USA immigration policies.
