Mexico blasts Texas for National Guard on border
MEXICO CITY (AP) — Mexico’s Foreign Relations Department is denouncing Texas’ decision to deploy National Guard troops along the border.
The department said in a statement Friday that Texas’ decision “doesn’t help joint efforts to have a modern, prosperous and safe border.”
A new wave of National Guard troops were deployed along Texas’ border with Mexico this week as part of a counterdrug task force. Mexico says there hasn’t been a change of border security to justify the decision.
It says such measures “deviate from the path of dialogue and cooperation.”
