MEXICO CITY – Mexican President Andrés Manuel López Obrador said Saturday his country must help Central Americans fleeing poverty and violence, even as it increases security and revisions to deter migrants from passing through Mexico on route to the U.S.
Mexico plans to deploy 6,000 National Guard troops by Tuesday to its southern border with Guatemala to slow the arrival of migrants and The Associated Press saw Mexican soldiers with black National Guard armbands stationed just north of the Guatemalan border on Saturday.
The article goes on to state the following:
“The truth is that there is a great humanitarian crisis in Central America and many people out of necessity have set out to look for a life in the United States and they pass through our territory,” said López Obrador, speaking in the northern state of Chihuahua.
López Obrador said the refusal to help foreigners in need is “anti-Christian,” adding that “we can’t turn our backs on them.”
