McAleenan: Mexico OKs ‘More Than Tenfold’ Increase in Troops to Its Southern Border
 

(CNSNews.com) – President Trump on Sunday dismissed as false a New York Times report saying his much-touted immigration deal with Mexico contained nothing new, and his stance was backed up later in the day by acting Homeland Security Secretary Kevin McAleenan.

On a key element of the bilateral agreement, McAleenan said Mexico has previously deployed just several hundred troops to its southern border with Guatemala, but has now agreed to a “more than tenfold” increase in numbers.

Trump tweeted that his administration, like predecessors, have been working on some parts of the agreement regarding border actions expected of Mexico, but had been unable to secure them, or secure them fully, until Friday’s signed deal.
