Mexico Forming Own Border Patrol, U.S. May Aid Efforts


Mexico is developing its own border patrol, as the country is increasingly burdened by illegal immigration from its southern border.

“Now that Mexico’s birth rate has stabilized, and it’s economy is improving, Mexico more and more finds itself victimized by illegal immigrants,” media outlet WOAI reported. Many immigrants travel through Mexico in order to enter the U.S. illegally; others enter the country illegally with the intention of staying there.

These immigrants, from Central and South America, are largely known as “Other Than Mexicans.” WOAI reported that these immigrants now make up more than half of all illegal entrants into the U.S.
