The crisis at the southern border still isn't solved, even despite Mexico's help with enforcement measures, according to top U.S. official.

Figures show the number of migrants nabbed at the border fell in June, but the number is on track to cross the million by the end of 2019, according to Customs and Border Protection (CBP) Deputy Commissioner Robert Perez.

Speaking on Fox News "Special Report," Perez said the projected figure us "unprecedented."

"We're still in the crisis. Even with what we're expecting the July numbers to show, which is still another 20 percent drop ... from last month, that's still 80,000 apprehensions along our southern border."

Perez said immigrant smuggling organizations are "really fueling the crisis."

"Incredibly vulnerable populations ... are being taken advantage of," he said.

He added that America's southern neighbor is working to secure its southern border with Guatemala while tacking migration difficulties in its own country.

Mexican President Andrés Manuel López Obrador said the country must help Central Americans trying to escape poverty and violence.

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