As Democrats Cry About Trump, Mexico Working to Seal Its Own Southern Border

As Democrats in the U.S. whine about how there is no crisis at the border, Mexico is taking action to seal its own southern border to stop illegals from breaking through into their country from Guatemala.

Our Democrats insist that there is no reason to stop illegals from streaming across our border. Mexico doesn’t agree… at least not with its own southern border.

When Mexico’s new President, Andrés Manuel López Obrador, took office there were some hints that he and is new administration wanted to move to stop illegals from streaming through Mexico.

Now, there was no reason to take these rumblings seriously because the Mexicans have said this before yet done nothing to address the situation. But it looks like Obrador is getting a bit more serious than past governments.

As HotAir reports:

They don’t have the time, money or resources for an actual wall (yet), but the government is stationing federal troops at hundreds of common crossing points to shut down the flow as much as possible.

According to the Seattle Times:

The Mexican government says it will put guards at some 370 illegal crossing points along the country’s southern border with Guatemala.

Mexico’s interior secretary has not set a date for accomplishing the task of securing the porous border.

Olga Sanchez Cordero said the crossings “will be guarded and controlled to prevent the entry of undocumented people.”

Currently, migrants cross along almost the entire length of the Usumacinta River that separates the two countries.

The Mexicans may have a bit more trouble with their boarder than the U.S. in the fact that its southern border with Guatemala is easy crossing. No vast deserts, or treacherous topography.

In any case, while Mexicans have talked about trying to stem the tide in the past, but made no moves to actually do so, Obador is actually taking steps.

We will have to see how ar he goes to fulfill his campaign promise.
