Reuters — Mexico detains 791 undocumented migrants, National Guard starts to patrol southern border:
Mexico’s National Migration Institute (INM) said in a statement late on Saturday that 791 foreign nationals were found in four trucks stopped in the eastern state of Veracruz, confirming earlier reports about a mass detention.
The apprehension came as Mexico steps up efforts to reduce a surge of migrants toward the U.S. border under pressure from U.S. President Donald Trump, who vowed to hit Mexican goods with tariffs if Mexico does not do more to stem illegal immigration.
As part of those efforts, Mexico has pledged to deploy 6,000 National Guard members along its border with Guatemala.
I like this. Marc Thiessen says it shows “Trump’s Mexican-Tariff Move Was A True Victory.” It will be a victory when the Mexican government makes it official policy that lasts more than 45 or 90 days.
