Enough with beating around the bush.
President Trump is tired of Mexico’s inaction when it comes to illegal immigration and he’s letting them know he won’t take it anymore.
After learning that American soldiers were disarmed by Mexican troops on the U.S. side of the border, 45 is now prepared to send “ARMED SOLDIERS” down south.
A very big Caravan of over 20,000 people started up through Mexico. It has been reduced in size by Mexico but is still coming. Mexico must apprehend the remainder or we will be forced to close that section of the Border & call up the Military. The Coyotes & Cartels have weapons!
Mexico’s Soldiers recently pulled guns on our National Guard Soldiers, probably as a diversionary tactic for drug smugglers on the Border. Better not happen again! We are now sending ARMED SOLDIERS to the Border. Mexico is not doing nearly enough in apprehending & returning!
Can anyone comprehend what a GREAT job Border Patrol and Law Enforcement is doing on our Southern Border. So far this year they have APPREHENDED 418,000 plus illegal immigrants, way up from last year. Mexico is doing very little for us. DEMS IN CONGRESS MUST ACT NOW!
About the detained U.S. soldiers, via Washington Examiner:
Armed Mexican troops disarmed two United States soldiers while they were on the American side of the border, U.S. defense officials have said.Advertisement - story continues below
U.S. Northern Command said in a statement that “five to six Mexican military personnel questioned two U.S. Army soldiers who were conducting border support operations” this month. The U.S. soldiers were in an unmarked Customs and Border Protection [CBP] vehicle near the southwest border near Clint, Texas.
Officials confirmed that the Mexican troops were armed with what seemed to be rifles. They raised their weapons when they saw the two U.S. soldiers, and then took a pistol from one and put it in the CBP vehicle. According to officials talking to CNN, the two Americans obliged “in an attempt to de-escalate a potential volatile situation.”
Olga Sánchez Cordero, the interior minister of Mexico, made it clear. The “mother of all caravans,” or “caravana madre,” is forming in Honduras.
Upwards of 20,000 migrants may soon be making their way through Mexico with hopes of landing in the United States of America.
This is no joke. This would be devastating.
As it stands right now, border patrol is overwhelmed.
Just imagine if tens of thousands of more migrants started banging on the gates.
Without actually saying how will Mexico respond to it, Sánchez Cordero warned today about the “mother of all caravans” forming in Honduras https://t.co/GzzZZLWbHp

From El Economista:
Mexico is preparing to face the problem of mass migration, before the so-called “Caravan Mother”, which is being formed in Honduras with a contingent that is estimated could reach more than 20,000 people.
Mexico's Interior Minister:
•MX will deploy measures at the Isthmus of Tehuantepec (migratory stations/police) to “contain” CentralAm migrants
•”We cant have hundreds of thousands of migrants transiting through MX reaching the Northern border (with/US)”pic.twitter.com/iARXP1JNqw

@M_OlgaSCordero announces that MX will no longer give large numbers of humanitarian visas to migrants crossing through the country. Says MX will continue to give worker / tourist visas that keep migrants in southern Mexico and enforce migratory laws for those traveling north. https://t.co/lZRlKxBt7i
