Mexico is deploying 15,000 troops to the US border to stop illegal immigrants from entering the United States.

Mexican Secretary of Defense Luis Sandoval confirmed that Mexico is sending thousands of soldiers to the U.S.-Mexico border to help stop the flood of illegal immigration.

"Mexico has deployed almost 15,000 troops to the US-Mexico border to curve migration flow," CNN's Nick Valencia tweeted.

"An additional ~2,000 National Guard elements have also been deployed across the country’s southern border with Guatemala & Belize.: MX Secretary of Defense Luis Sandoval."

According to CNN, Sandoval said the following today in Cancun: "In the northern part of the country, we have deployed a total of almost 15,000 troops composed of National Guard elements and military units."

Director of Rapid Response for President Trump's 2020 re-election campaign, Andrew Clark, tweeted: "President Trump getting things done on the southern border (now if only Democrats in Congress could do the same!)"

To which Valencia responded: "I have never seen this kind of cooperation from Mexico before in terms of immigration."

According to the Daily Wire, the move by Mexico comes after the Trump administration increased pressure on the Mexican government to significantly increase its efforts to stop the seemingly endless flow of migrants that are illegally entering the United States.

Trump announced at the end of last month that Mexico would face tariffs that would devastate their economy if they did not step up to the table and make serious efforts to help stop the problem.

Trump tweeted: "On June 10th, the United States will impose a 5% Tariff on all goods coming into our Country from Mexico, until such time as illegal migrants coming through Mexico, and into our Country, STOP.

"The Tariff will gradually increase until the Illegal Immigration problem is remedied, at which time the Tariffs will be removed.

"Details from the White House to follow."

The tariffs were set to increase by 5% every month, maxing out at 25%, until Mexico addressed the problem.

On June 7, Trump tweeted that the United States had reached an agreement with Mexico, writing: "I am pleased to inform you that The United States of America has reached a signed agreement with Mexico.

"The Tariffs scheduled to be implemented by the U.S. on Monday, against Mexico, are hereby indefinitely suspended.

"Mexico, in turn, has agreed to take strong measures to stem the tide of Migration through Mexico, and to our Southern Border.

"This is being done to greatly reduce, or eliminate, Illegal Immigration coming from Mexico and into the United States.

"Details of the agreement will be released shortly by the State Department. Thank you!"

In early June, U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) released its apprehension data for the month of May.

CBP tweeted: "CBP continues to face a worsening crisis at the Southwest border.

"In May, CBP apprehended or deemed inadmissible 144,278 individuals along the SWB—a 32% increase over the previous month."

CBP's full data release showcases the incredible trajectory of our border crisis.

Solely looking at apprehensions recorded between points of entry, CBP recorded 132,887 in the month of May alone.

That is double the number of apprehensions from just February when CBP recorded 66,884 apprehensions.

Going back to the beginning of the fiscal year in October 2018, CBP has recorded a staggering 160.52% increase in apprehensions recorded between points of entry in the first eight months of this fiscal year alone.

These are eye-opening numbers that ought to indicate the depth of the national crisis to every sober viewer relatively familiar with basic arithmetic.
