Mexico toughening up migration controls at southern border

ROUGH CUT - NO REPORTER NARRATION Mexico is toughening up its migration controls near its southern border with Guatemala as part of a deal reached with the United States to avert escalating import tariffs of 5% on Mexican goods.

National Immigration Institute officials accompanied by military personnel were conducting checks on vehicles traveling along a highway in Mexico's southern state of Chiapas on Wednesday (June 12).

Meanwhile, large crowds of migrants continued to await permission to remain in or travel through Mexico outside an Immigration Institute office nearby.

Also on Wednesday, Mexican President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador said the sale of the former presidential jet and other aircraft from the last government would help fund components of the deal struck last week with Washington.

Lopez Obrador said the price tag of the Boeing 787 Dreamliner used by his predecessor Enrique Pena Nieto would start at $150 million, citing a United Nations evaluation.

The plane has been on sale for several months.

Lopez Obrador has shunned the often luxurious trappings of Mexico's wealthy elites, choosing to fly coach.

He has also rolled out a string of welfare programs for the poor and the elderly, cut salaries for top civil servants and says he is saving public money by eliminating corruption.
