Mexico is reportedly increasing efforts to stem the unprecedented number of illegal aliens crossing its southern border en route to the United States, following Democratic President Joe Biden’s policies, which have caused the crisis to expand in numbers, with rates estimated to be the highest in the Department of Homeland Security’s history.

In reaction to the crisis that has arisen at the US-Mexico border in recent weeks, President Andrés Manuel López Obrador is reportedly planning to “significantly reinforce” his actions on the border with Guatemala, according to multiple sources.

“Mexico is preparing to significantly reinforce efforts to detain US-bound migrants who illegally cross its border with Guatemala, in response to a jump in people trying to enter the United States, according to four people familiar with the matter,”  Reuters reported.

It also stated, “Mexico would deploy security forces to cut the flow of migrants, the bulk of whom come from Central America’s so-called Northern Triangle of Guatemala, El Salvador, and Honduras, whose economies were battered by the coronavirus (CCP Virus) pandemic and hurricanes last year.”

Mexico is sending a team to assist with migrant caravans.

According to the report, Mexico’s National Guard militarized police—which led efforts to reduce the number of illegal aliens entering the country from Central America during a spike in 2019 “would be at the fore of the containment drive.”

“The operations will be more frequent, more continuous, and we will be taking part from next week,” Reuters cited from the National Guard’s member.

Mexico’s assistance will be critical in assisting President Biden in dealing with the unprecedented number of people arriving at the U.S. border, which reached a new high last month and is expected to rise higher in March.

The Customs and Border Protection (CBP) reported that it had known at least 100,441 individuals in February alone, a 28% rise over January, as the Biden administration tried to downplay the situation at the border, refusing to label it a crisis.

Unaccompanied children (UACs) have been arriving at the U.S. border at a greater pace than officials can process and move them to sponsor homes, according to the CBP. At least 13,000 unaccompanied children are currently being held in U.S. custody.

Mexico is concerned about the surge at U.S. border crisis.

According to The Associated Press, after Mexican law enforcement officials confirmed catching 20 illegal aliens at a checkpoint using “falsified paperwork with letterheads from the U.N. refugee agency, UNHCR,” another report fueled Republican concerns that terrorist suspects are using the border situation to reach the country.

Mexico had previously expressed concern that “the new US administration’s asylum policies are stoking illegal immigration and creating business for organized crime,” noted Reuters.

President Biden also recently ordered illegal aliens “not to come” while maintaining that the border situation is under control.

During a phone call with Fox News host Maria Bartiromo, former President Donald Trump criticized Biden for destroying the “great relationship” that the United States had established with Mexican president—in working to stop the tide of illegal immigration—and claimed that Biden jeopardized the progress by reversing his border policies and halting the building of the border wall.

Trump warned, “It is a crisis like we have rarely had and certainly we have never had on the border. But it is going to get much worse.” Trump had enforced strict border policies and had demanded that those trying to enter the country should do that legally.
