US Reports Border Detentions ⬇️ Declines in August as 🇲🇽 Mexico Show Support

Nothing Least than 64,000 people were detained or turned back at the southwest border in August, down 22% from July and down 56% from a high mark in May, US border officials said on Monday, citing greater cooperation from Mexico in cracking down on Central American migrants.

The total, still the highest for the month of August in more than a decade, was reported as a U.S. district judge dealt a setback to a new Trump administration rule that sought to block almost all asylum applications at the border.


Mark Morgan, the acting commissioner of U.S. Customs and Border Protection, said “unprecedented support and cooperation” of Mexico helped stem the tide, and also credited Central American countries that had come to see mass migration as a regional crisis, not just a problem for the United States.


Washington received Mexican pledges to cooperate after threatening to impose tariffs on its southern neighbor and major trading partner.
