Doing the Work Democrats Refuse to Do: Mexico Deploys Nearly 15,000 Troops to Border to Stop Migrant Flow to the US

It seems as though President Donald Trump has managed to get Mexico to be more serious about protecting the southern border than the Democratic Party.

The Mexican troops have been ordered to protect the border amid ramped up pressure from President Trump.

“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 press conference alongside President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador, according to a report from the AFP.

Sandoval told reporters that the troops will be stopping and detaining illegal migrants to prevent them from crossing the US border. Mexican officials typically did not stop illegal migrants in the past.

Mexico has also deployed 6,000 National Guardsmen to their southern border to stop Central American migrants going through their nation to get to the US.

“Given that migration is not a crime but rather an administrative violation, we simply detain them and turn them over to the authorities” Sandoval added.

The news comes as a June poll from the Mexican newspaper ElUniversal found that 61.5% of Mexicans want their government to stop allowing migrants from other nations travel through their country to get to the United States.

The number from ElUniversal’s June survey was a significant increase from the 49% who wanted to stop the flow of migrants in October 2018.

The newspaper also reported that the majority of Mexican citizens, 53.7%, do not support granting work visas to Central American migrants — a move that has been pushed by Mexican President Andrés Manuel López Obrador. Another 44.4% want illegal migrants to be immediately deported.

  1. The eternal problem is half of the USA wants an open southern border, lest they be “racists.” It’s a sickness, no question. Why bother with passports or visas at international points of entry, when you’ve got a 2000-mile hole in your border? Before long you won’t hear English spoken in several States. The Dims will be proud of their new 3rd world paradise.

  2. I cheered when The Donald was elected. I did not think he would be any good, but his election was going to stick a red hot poker up the fundamental orifice of all those supercilious main stream media dongbeaters, whom I had begun to hate with a vengeance.
    The Donald has surprised me. I now believe he has become the best US president, at least in my life time.

  3. There are hundreds of thousand of illegals sitting on one side or the other of the US border.
    This is good news.
    15,000 troops, its show the size of the invasion.
    I saw a doco a few year ago which showed hundreds going up Mexico from Central America on trains at night to the USA.
    They come from all over, Central America, South America and yes Africa.

    So Trump is making Mexico pay at last!
    Actions not words OBAMA and the dems
