Mexico Deploys National Guard, Ramps Up Crackdown on Immigrants

HeadlineJul 02, 2019

Meanwhile, Mexico’s newly formed National Guard officially began operations Sunday, deploying 70,000 members across the country. The force was set up by President Andrés Manuel López Obrador to combat violence from organized crime, but critics have called out recent incidents showing members detaining Central American migrants at the border.

In related news, Mexican immigration officials said they recently deported over 80 Haitian migrants, amid mounting pressure from the U.S. to stem the flow of northbound migrants.
