Mexico Deploys 15,000 Troops to U.S. Border



Mexico’s government has deployed nearly 15,000 troops and National Guardsmen to its border with the United States, Mexico’s defense minister, Luis Cresencio Sandoval, said during a press conference Monday.

Under pressure from US President Donald Trump, to slow the surge of humanity from all corners of the globe crossing into the U.S., Mexico promised earlier this month to reinforce its southern border with 6,000 National Guardsmen but had not previously disclosed the extent of it’s operation on its northern border.
