Mexico 'Not Doing Nearly Enough' to Block Migrants

Share

President Donald Trump shared a theory without evidence on Wednesday, April 24, that Mexican soldiers recently drew guns on US soldiers at the border as a diversion for drug smugglers, a comment at odds with the USA military's assessment of what happened.

President Trump is irate over reports of National Guard troops being stopped at gunpoint by Mexican military at the southern border.

Still clad in their camouflage uniforms, the remaining handful of gunmen drove out of the Sunland Park, New Mexico, encampment after two months spent detaining thousands of illegal migrants. The truck departed from the area, heading westbound on the border.

According to reporting by ZeroHedge.com, both U.S. soldiers reported hearing someone yell vámonos in Spanish from the Mexican side.

The area where the confrontation occurred is south of America's border security but is still technically US land.

The president of the National Border Patrol Council, Brandon Judd, said over the weekend that "these things don't just happen by accident".

Northern Command said that the soldier allowed the weapon to be taken "in an attempt to de-escalate a potential volatile situation". "They just can't publicly say that". A group of almost 400 - mostly children - surrendered to border agents there April 16.

In recent days, there have been about 8,000 Central American migrants moving through southern Mexico in various groups.

"We don't see this very often, but we do know the potential is there".

Maisie Williams Reacts To Arya's Sex Scene

"If we can do something to slow them down and locate and pin them, we'll pin them in a bush", he said.

The agents who found him were responding to a call about migrants crossing the Rio Grande, said communications director Irma Chapa with Border Patrol's Rio Grande Valley Sector, according to CNN.

He said Wednesday at an event in Atlanta that "Mexico is starting to detain" and send people "back to their country, where they came from", but said too many drugs are still coming across the border.

"The rule of law is vital to securing our borders", he said. Karish said he believes the boy was with a larger group.

The Federal Bureau of Investigation moved in on Saturday to arrest Hopkins on 18-month-old weapons charges.

Mexico has returned 15,000 migrants in the past 30 days, a senior government official said on Tuesday, pointing to an uptick in deportations in the face of pressure from Trump to stem the flow of people north.

Former supporters began to desert the UCP after the charges.

Officials arrested or denied entry to more than 100,000 people along the Mexican border in March, more than twice as many as during the same period past year, according to U.S. Customs and Border Protection. "Masked militiamen are the antithesis of what a free republic looks like".
