Trump Jr.’s tweet came after around 15,000 soldiers and National Guard policemen have been deployed by the Mexican government to the U.S. border in a bid to check migration flow from Central America.
Mexican Secretary of Defense Luis Sandoval said in Cancun on Monday: “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.”
Rep. Mark Meadows (R-NC) also weighed in on the news, tweeting: “If true, what a message to skeptics who repeated talking points that @realDonaldTrump’s agreement with Mexico was an empty piece of paper. And perhaps more importantly: what a message to Washington Democrats, who are now being outdone by MEXICO on securing America’s own border.”

In the meantime, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) announced Sunday, June 23, that a supplemental border law would be introduced this week in the lower chamber to provide funding relief to the southern border humanitarian crisis. But Pelosi said that the bill would not finance the policy of mass detention of the Trump administration.
On Sunday, President Trump stayed firm on his decision to delay the deportations of thousands of families in the United States illegally, reaffirming that he is giving Democrats two weeks to complete an asylum agreement.
The president asserted: “I want to give the Democrats every last chance to quickly negotiate simple changes to Asylum and Loopholes. This will fix the Southern Border, together with the help that Mexico is now giving us. Probably won’t happen, but worth a try. Two weeks and big Deportation begins!”
