Mexico sends troops to southern border over migrant deal

Mexico sends troops to its southern border in a bid to stem migration flows into the US.

    It's part of a deal struck with US President Donald Trump to curb the flow of Central Americans seeking asylum in the United States.

    The migrants say they're fleeing violence in their home countries.

    Mexico's move comes as Trump threatened to impose tariffs on the country if it did not do more to stop the migrant tide.
