Migrants Returning Home amid Mexico's Crackdown, Says AP

The Mexican Navy has already been deployed at the Guatemala border's Suchiate River, stopping illegal migrants who appear by raft, according to Reforma, a Mexican news outlet.

He says their payments were made in their home countries or in the USA, but as they passed through Mexico they also were going to pay "commissions" to ensure their free passage.

CBN News reported this month on two stories of separate ISIS terrorists who revealed ISIS plans to sneak across the U.S. border to bring their jihad inside the United States. Among numerous things, Mexico is deploying up to 6,000 newly-formed National Guard troops to its southern border with Guatemala, a hotspot for northbound Central American migrants.

Since January, some 600,000 migrants have arrived at the USA border after crossing Mexico.

The country is under US pressure to reduce the surge of mostly Central American migrants through its territory.

Mexico's foreign affairs secretary says the government will not tolerate human trafficking and provided new details of the weekend "rescue" of almost 800 migrants packed into semi-trailers. "But I think it's still too early to tell".

Kyrie Irving to join Lakers after Anthony Davis

If the June arrest numbers continue to decline, it would be the first month this year that CBP has seen a decrease in enforcement actions.

Mexican authorities nabbed 791 illegal migrants on Saturday, according to the National Migration Institute, a department within the Mexican government that tracks and manages migration through the country.

Mexico is often sensitive to offers of US help with anything.

Last week, quite possibly under pressure from Lopez Obrador, Mexico's immigration chief resigned.

He estimated the entire value of the truck caravan's human cargo at more than $3.5 million (69 million pesos) and said the smugglers were going to pay roughly $500,000 to $800,000 in "commissions" to ensure the migrants' free passage.
