Mexico will not detain migrants at USA border: president Lopez Obrador

Migrant families fleeing violence caught up in politics Mexico deploys nearly 15,000 troops to the US border

"Luis Sandoval, Mexico's secretary of defense, said that the country has 'deployed a total of nearly 15,000 troops composed of National Guard elements and military units", to the US-Mexico border.

Mexico has not traditionally used security forces to stop undocumented foreign citizens leaving the country for the United States, and photographs of militarized police catching Central American and Cuban women at the border in recent days have met with criticism. US border security officials say an unknown number of these units use fraudulent birth certificates to fake family ties.

"If we left it completely in the hands of the National Institute of Migration it wouldn't be possible", he added.

If that fails, Lopez Obrador's government has said it will consider changing its laws to satisfy Trump's demand that Mexico become a buffer zone to stop migrants entering the United States.

In Ciudad Juarez, just south of El Paso, Texas, National Guardsmen turned back migrants trying to cross the border during the weekend.

Lopez Obrador, an anti-establishment leftist who came to office in December vowing to protect migrants' rights, has been pushed into a more hardline stance by Trump, who threatened last month to impose tariffs on all Mexican goods if the government did not do more to slow migration.

"Migration is not a crime", Sandoval said in his statement, "it is an administrative responsibility".

Migrants already in the United States received a temporary reprieve this weekend after Trump called off promised deportation raids to see if Democrats and Republicans could set aside their differences and "work out a solution to the Asylum and Loophole problems at the Southern Border".

Former Mexican national security official Gustavo Mohar said Mexico's security forces had not been used this way before, describing the development as "sad". A partnership between the United States and Mexico when it comes to asylum.

Some 2,000 Mexican national guard troops were deployed to the country's southern border with Guatemala and Belize, bringing the total number of Mexican troops sent there above 6,000.

In the deal, Mexico also committed to taking "decisive action to dismantle human smuggling and trafficking organizations as well as their illicit financial and transportation networks".
