Mexico Sends 15,000 Troops to Border with U.S.

Mexican troop deployment falling short of promise

Mexican troop deployment falling short of promise

"In the northern part of the country we have a total deployment of 14,000, nearly 15,000 units between the National Guard and the Army", Sandoval told a regular news conference.

Mexico now has some 15,000 troops deployed to its northern border with the U.S.to try to help control the flow of migrants headed north, a top official revealed Monday.

Some 2,000 Mexican national guard troops were deployed to the country's southern border with Guatemala and Belize, bringing the total number of Mexican troops sent there above 6,000.

Mexico is trying to curb a surge of migrants from third countries crossing its territory in order to reach the United States, under the threat of tariffs on its exports by U.S. President Donald Trump, who has made tightening border security a priority.

The deployments come after renewed pressure from the Trump administration on Mexico to help slow migration flows northward.

Earlier this month, Washington and Mexico City hammered out an 11th-hour deal to avoid the imminent imposition of tariffs on Mexican goods entering the United States.

Responding to weekend reports of heavy-handed interventions by the military, Luis Cresencio Sandoval, the head of the Army, said soldiers were needed to back up migration officials in containment operations.

The policy is a shift from its previous practice.

In some cases, migrant families have been separated when some members manage to cross the border and others get detained on the Mexican side.

The practice caused an outcry after an AFP photographer documented last week how heavily armed National Guardsmen in Ciudad Juarez forcefully stopped two women and a young girl from crossing the Rio Grande river into the United States.

The government has faced criticism for stopping migrants from crossing the US-Mexican border. This policy is a clear violation of human rights, ' added Calvillo, a Catholic priest.

Most of the people caught on the U.S. -Mexico border are from three Central American countries suffering from high levels of gang violence and poverty: Guatemala, Honduras and El Salvador.

However, global law protects the right of undocumented migrants to cross worldwide borders to request asylum. The total included a record 89,000 families.

"Mexico doing more to protect America than Democrats", Trump Jr. tweeted.

Mexico says it has sent almost 15,000 troops to the United States border.

Mexico has 45 days to prove they've ramped up border security otherwise sanctions will be imposed.
