ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) STORY: U.S. Department of Homeland Security John Kelly said there would be 'no mass deportations' during a news conference with U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson and Mexico's Foreign Minister Luis Videgaray. 'Everything we do in DHS will be done legally and according to human rights in the legal justice system of the United States," Kelly said. "The focus of deportations would be on the criminal element that have made it into the United States. All of this will be done as it always is in close coordination with the government of Mexico." Videgaray expressed his concerns about the rights of Mexicans living in the United States. Both sides on Thursday pledged further dialogue on migration, trade and security issues facing both nations. Kelly and Tillerson were much more measured in their words than either the Mexicans or President Trump, who on Thursday said a military operation was being carried out to clear "bad dudes" from the United States. None of the officials made direct references to the deportation of immigrants from third countries to Mexico, or to paying for the border wall planned by Trump, a red-flag issue for Mexico.
