Mexico is a country in the southern part of North America whose capital is Mexico City. It is part of NAFTA, and the Mexican economy is strongly tied to the US. Known for its resorts, Mexico attracts tourists from all over the world.
Mexico has sent nearly 15,000 troops to its northern border, announcing a crackdown on illegal crossings and caving in to President Donald Trump’s threats to impose punitive tariffs unless it cuts the flow of migrants into the US.
Mexico has started deploying its National Guard to its southern border, as part of a bargain with Washington to do more to curb the flow of Central American migrants, or to endure threatened tariff hikes on its imports to the US.
