We've seen this before, take cursory action to show that you're doing something then back off when the pressure eases. Trump has hit a nerve. The announcement last week that a trade official was coming to the WH to negotiate the new tariffs coupled with apparent action at their southern border look encouraging. Hope they finally got the message.

Mexican soldiers, armed police and migration officials blocked hundreds of migrants after they crossed the border from Guatemala in a caravan into southern Mexico on Wednesday, and detained dozens of them, a witness from a migrant aid group and an official said.

The Mexican response in the border town of Metapa, which included dozens of soldiers, marked a toughening of the government’s efforts to curb the flow of mainly Central American migrants, said Salva Cruz, a coordinator with Fray Matias de Cordova.

Another Mexican standoff.

I mentioned in the OP that this isn't the first time this has happened. They did it when Trump threatened to close the border the first time. Their southern border is only 600 mi long and their unfettered use of their military is common on their borders they should have no problem controlling it.

Many politicians claim mexico has stricter immigration laws than the usa. It does not seem that way since the majority of people coming here go through mexico.

Trump really hasn't. Any sane country would try to negotiate a potential trade war. They haven't shown any signs of increased immigration policies.

Also, what is MEXICO going to do? They are an impoverished, war torn country full of gang wars and corrupt politicians. their economy and government are starting to pick up and we hit them with this. We should focus on funding our borders in an effective way with more enforcement and giving opportunities for those who overstay there visas to become citizens.

The main problem is really people overstaying visas, not drug dealers climbing mountains and swamp lands with a bag of drugs to get over a river. Immigration has steadily declined. We should give opportunities for the hardworking Hispanics in this countries to legally becoming citizens rather than separating families for a needless racial crusade.

I'm waiting for your irrational republican retard logic clicker.:)

Just saw two news flashes, one that stated that the tariffs might be delayed pending talks and later another told us that a preliminary deal has been made. One part leaked is that the Mexican govt will allow other than Mexicans to be deported back to Mexico from the US. It is a huge stumbling bloc to deporting those from other than Mexico back to Mexico the way they came in.
Libs won't like this one bit because it allow us to send them back when it's determined they aren't eligible for asylum etc.

From the OP:

Mexico’s National Migration Institute (INM) said in a statement that a group of about 300 people entered Mexico by a border bridge Wednesday morning, and another 120 people joined the group as they walked to the city of Tapachula.

The migrants later agreed to be taken by bus to a migration office to be processed, the INM said.
