De Blasio charged the letter was an attempt by the Trump administration to deflect criticism of the separation policy, which has since been altered.

"The border agents ... let our cars cross the American border into Mexico at a normal checkpoint", he said after an unrelated press conference on public housing in Brooklyn.

The agency alleged that de Blasio and his security detail violated both countries' border laws on June 21 when they illegally crossed into Mexico - and then back into the USA - on foot near the El Paso, Texas, port of entry. The New York Police Department runs de Blasio's security detail. But the group disregarded the order, walking back to their vehicles and driving back to Mexico, according to the letter.

A spokesman for the Border Protection had no comment.

According to a letter written by the Customs and Border Protection agency, which was obtained by The Associated Press, a uniformed border patrol agent saw a group of people just south of the entry port in Tornillo, Texas.

Phillips had posted tweets of the mayor's visit on June 21.
