Mexican National Guard steps up presence at country’s northern border

The Arizona Republic's Rafael Carranza explains the impact of the deployment.

Mexico began sending its National Guard to the country’s border with Guatemala in June, and it has since expanded those deployments to the U.S.-Mexico border. The initial move stems from President Trump's threats to levy new tariffs on trade unless Mexico did more to deter migration from Central America. Arizona Republic reporter Rafael Carranza has covered the deployment’s expansion and discussed its impact in the state of Sonora.
