Mexico must bolster southern border to address migration: foreign minister

June 11, 2019

MEXICO CITY (Reuters) – Mexico must expand migration facilities on its southern border with Guatemala to ensure it makes a success of a deal struck last week with the United States to reduce migrant flows, Mexico’s foreign minister Marcelo Ebrard said on Tuesday.

Speaking at a regular government news conference, Ebrard said not enough priority had been given to Mexico’s southern border in the past and that the state need to have a “different” presence across the frontier to deal with migrant flows.
