Thousands of Mexican troops deployed to borders

Posted: Tuesday, June 25, 2019. 9:39 am CST.

By BBN Staff: Belizeans traveling to Chetumal this week should notice a spike in military presence after Mexico deployed some 2,000 additional troops to its southern border with Belize and Guatemala to add to the already 4,500 troops spread across the area.

The increased military presence comes in response to pressure from the United States government, led by President Donald Trump, for Mexico to slow migration flows into the US.

Mexico’s Secretary of Defense, Luis Sandoval, said that an additional 15,000 troops have been deployed to its northern border shared with the US.

The US has intensified its crackdown on illegal migration, and has stressed that the migration flows begin from Central America and go northward into the US through Mexico.

Sandoval told international media that curbing migration is not a job Mexico can handle alone because “migration is not a crime, it is an administrative responsibility.”
