RIO GRANDE VALLEY, Texas – There has been a buildup of security forces in Mexico near its border with Guatemala.
Mexican National Guard patrols arrived in Tapachula today to help restrict migration north through Mexico to the U.S.
Some of the patrols were deployed to back up Mexican immigration agents at a checkpoint.
This is all being done to avert new U.S. tariff’s on goods. Mexico’s president agreed to a 45-day deadline to make visible progress in reducing the number of people trying to cross the U.S. border illegally.
