MEXICO CITY — Mexico’s top security official said Wednesday the government will close off illegal entries at its southern border with Guatemala, but didn’t say how the country plans to do it.

Interior Secretary Olga Sanchez Cordero also said the migrant caravans that crossed the southern border in October “is no longer an issue.”

The article goes on to state the following:

“Do you know why it is no longer an issue? Because in five days this administration solved the issue, five days,” she said, referring to the first week since President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador took office Dec. 1. “The United States was impressed.”

The new administration has mobilized material and equipment to improve conditions at the migrants’ shelter in the northern border city of Tijuana, but problems continue because the Central American there are frustrated by the slow pace at which U.S. officials are processing asylum requests.

Sanchez Cordero said Mexico will promote a “Christmas at Home” campaign to encourage many of the migrants to return to their home countries for the holidays.

Discussing the entry of migrants, she said the new administration will end the practice of undocumented or illegal crossings over the Suchiate River, which marks much of the border between Mexico and Guatemala.

    Talk them into going back home or staying in Mexico because the United States does not want or need them

    Mexico can close off their southern border and STOP all illegial crossings because they don’t have a bunch of liberal assholes dictateing what the government can do when it comes to illegials

    Sure, the thousands that are already there are not an issue? If they are knocking on our Southern door, and willing to knock it down to get in, that is still a problem.

    Mexico owns the problem in Tijuana. Mexico closed their southern border, Trump can do the same.

    Stop saying what will or is going to be done- just do it! Surprise the hell out of everybody. Can’t stay between a rock and a hard spot- make a choice no straddling the fence.
