Just beyond a chain-linked fence topped with barbed wire, hundreds of Mexican federal, state and local law enforcement officers – clad in riot gear and armed with automatic weapons – stood vigilantly.

Military police soldiers marched in formation in the street behind them.

“Why are they there? We are not criminals,” shouted one migrant inside the fenced-in area.

“It’s not that we’re trying to keep free people. They have to have migrant visas to be in our country and our city and trying to work together to handle this situation as best as we can,” said Piedras Negras Mayor Claudio Bres. “Instead of California, Arizona and New Mexico that all have all land territory, this is a river that in winter is very dangerous for people who don’t know how to swim and we’re not going to put them through that situation.”

Piedras Negras’ robust response comes as the U.S. promised to take “all steps” to make sure the “lawless caravan” doesn’t illegally enter the country. More

Looks like Mexico thinks that there is a crisis on the border. Just remember, if previous presidents had kept their promise to build a wall, none of this circus would be going on now. You know it’s getting really bad when even Mexico is getting sick and tired of these migrants.
