WATCH: Mexican Troops Hold Back Mob of Migrants at Guatemala Border

A new video shows Mexican authorities detaining large groups of Africans attempting to enter Mexico at the Guatemala border, whose ultimate goal is to reach the US.

The move comes in response to President Trump’s recent negotiations with the Mexican government, including his threat to impose a 5% tariff on Mexican goods entering the country, should the government fail to address the migration crisis.

Recently, detained African migrants have protested conditions in Mexican detention centers while detailing their long and illegal journeys in hopes of reaching the United States.
