(Mexico attempting to comply with demands)…The demands were placed on Mexico by the Trump administration.
The US President recently told Mexico that in order to avoid increased tariff’s on their exported goods, they had to do more to prevent the influx of Central Americans illegally crossing Mexico to illegally enter the United States. Mexico has formed a new National Guard to undertake those efforts. They are conducting raids on large groups of the illegal migrants. The most recent was Thursday in Chiapas. About 100 of the New National Guard stopped a train carrying about 400 illegal migrants. The migrants scrambled, and the Mexican law enforcement were able to arrest about 40 people. Another raid, the same day, in Vera Cruz was more successful, resulting in the arrest of about 450 migrants
