Mexico agrees to increase border security to control illegal immigration into U.S.

Mexico doubles down on border security amid calls from the U.S. to curb the tide of illegal immigration. According to reports this week, Mexican soldiers, armed police, and migration officials have blocked hundreds of migrants attempting to cross Mexico’s border with Guatemala. Mexico has vowed increase border security, and recently announced it will deploy National Guard troops throughout the country to dismantle human smuggling and trafficking organizations.
