Trump makes new threat to send soldiers to US-Mexico border

19 Migrants packed into smuggler's pickup truck

Central Time, a group of five or six suspected Mexican soldiers approached an unmarked vehicle of two USA soldiers stationed at the border in El Paso County, Texas, and ordered them out of the vehicle. "The Mexican soldiers disarmed one of the US soldiers and placed his sidearm in the USA vehicle", his report said. Although the area was on the US side of the border north of the Rio Grande in Texas, it was south of the border fence. Mark Lazane, a spokesman for NORTHCOM.

An incident report describing the incident and obtained by Newsweek said the us soldiers were "gently searched" by Mexican forces, and that the Mexican forces did not have any military identification on their uniforms other than Mexican flags.

The Mexican troops had believed the USA soldiers were south of the border and therefore in Mexico.

"We don't want them to have free passage and not just for legal reasons but also for security", he told his morning news conference. The Mexican soldiers eventually returned the weapon. (The FX-05 Xiuhcoatl is a Mexican manufactured assault rifle issued only to the Mexican Army's Special Forces units and Airborne Infantry Brigade.) The Mexican soldiers detained and questioned the US troops.

He is scheduled to leave the White House for a prescription drug speech in Atlanta around 10:40 a.m., and could be hoping reporters ask him about the border situation rather than the special counsel's report.

U.S. Northern Command, which is coordinating military assistance to CBP on the border, said an investigation is ongoing.

The president's tweets come after several Mexican military personnel reportedly questioned U.S Army soldiers who were on patrol duty near the border in Texas.

This indicates that the Mexican soldiers became aware of their mistake following the discussion.

Earlier this month, Trump visited the border amid an escalating immigration crisis, lamenting that "our country is full" and warning potential migrants thinking about crossing into the USA that this country "can't take you anymore".

According to reporting by ZeroHedge.com, both USA soldiers reported hearing someone yell vámonos in Spanish from the Mexican side. The truck departed from the area, heading westbound on the border.

"But we're not going to fight with the USA government", he said.

Trump has declared the issue a national emergency and demanded United States legislators commit billions of dollars to building a border wall to keep migrants out.

President Donald Trump threatened the Mexican government this morning by announcing the USA will send "armed soldiers" to the border after members of Mexico's military confronted Americans National Guardsmen who they believed were on their side of the border. Mexico must apprehend the remainder or we will be forced to close that section of the Border & call up the Military.

American citizens are beginning to take matters into their own hands after the USA government failed to uphold its basic commitment to protect the borders from invaders. Mexico is doing very little for us.

Trump's frustration comes as the number of apprehensions at the border surpassed 100,000 in March.

According to Ms. Laila's reports, over 1.5 million illegal aliens will enter the United States in 2019 if the surge continues at the current rate.

Trump also threatened the Mexican military in another tweet.
