Durazo indicated that the new border-police force would be part of a much larger regional effort to reduce poverty and violence that plagues so many Central American countries, which ultimately leads to a flood of families crossing into Mexico. He said the new police force will be sizeable and deployed to Mexico's southern border. Durazo declined to offer more specifics to Bloomberg, but he noted that the police force would be used to secure the northern border as well.
"We're going to create a border police force that will be highly specialized," Durazo told Bloomberg.
"They need to apply the law," against illegal immigration and human trafficking crossing into Mexico, which Durazo points out often occurs under the supervision of corrupt officials.
