Mexico Claims Success in Stopping Migrants; Activists Say No

Friday, 06 September 2019 12:38 AM

MEXICO CITY (AP) — Mexico says it has complied with a 90-day deadline from the U.S. to reduce the flow of migrants through its territory.

Foreign Relations Secretary Marcelo Ebrard is to give a final report on Mexican government efforts Friday, three months after threats by U.S. President Donald Trump to impose tariffs on Mexico unless it cracked down on hundreds of thousands of mainly Central American migrants arriving at the U.S. border.

The figures appear to bear out Mexico's position. The number of migrants detained at the U.S. border has fallen from 133,000 in May to 95,000 in June and 72,000 in July. Mexico has reinforced security on its porous southern border and set up checkpoints on highways leading north, deploying 21,600 police and troops across the nation.
