BREAKING: Mexico Deploys 15,000 Troops to US Border

On Monday, new reports indicated that the Mexican government had deployed approximately 15,000 soldiers to the US-Mexico border in an effort to quell the surging numbers of illegal aliens, following pressure from President Trump.

“We have a total deployment, between the National Guard and army units, of almost 15,000 men in the north of the country,” explained Defense Minister Luis Cresencio Sandoval during a Monday announcement.

The move comes after the recent deployment of around 2,000 additional soldiers to Mexico’s southern border in an attempt to prevent further mass-migration from Central America.

Trump supporters and proponents of increased border security took to social media to praise Mexico for their efforts, which many pointed out are much more than Democrats have been willing to offer thus far.

From The Hill:

Mexico’s defense minister said Monday that the nation has deployed nearly 15,000 troops to its northern border to increase border enforcement, part of a deal to avert U.S. tariffs on Mexican goods, according to Agence France-Presse (AFP).

“We have a total deployment, between the National Guard and army units, of 14,000, almost 15,000 men in the north of the country,” Defense Minister Luis Cresencio Sandoval said at a Monday joint press conference with President Andrés Manuel López Obrador.

Mexico had previously announced its plans to deploy 6,000 national guardsmen to its southern border with Guatemala, but its plans to beef up security on its border with the U.S. had not previously been disclosed, according to the news service.

Sandoval confirmed the Mexican forces were detaining migrants attempting to cross the border, according to AFP.

“Given that (undocumented) migration is not a crime but rather an administrative violation, we simply detain them and turn them over to the authorities” at Mexico’s National Migration Institute, Sandoval said.

Mexican security forces have not historically detained migrants at the northern border, and the government has been subject to increased criticism following a photograph last week depicting heavily armed national guardsmen stopping women and a child from crossing the Rio Grande, according to AFP.

President Trump had threatened to hit Mexico with tariffs if the country did not take steps to secure the border. Under the agreement between Mexico and the U.S., Mexico has 45 days to demonstrate increased border enforcement.

Where are our troops on our side ? Mexican troops have already escorted illegals and drugs over our border and shot at US troops on our side after crossing into our territory. You have the equivalent of the fox guarding the hen house here.
Hey Mr. President , where are the troops on our side ?
You can project power halfway across the world , but you can’t mobilize them on their home turf to protect it ?
Are you trying to lose 2020? Do you even want the job anymore ? Do you need to admit the crime syndicate in DC has beaten you ?
