Mattis to travel to Mexico border on Wednesday

Mattis to travel to Mexico border on WednesdayU.S. Defense Secretary Jim Mattis said he would travel to the border with Mexico on Wednesday following the deployment of thousands of troops to bolster President Donald Trump’s efforts to crack down on illegal immigration. “I’ll visit the border tomorrow,” Mattis said before the start of a meeting with his Qatari counterpart. It will be Mattis’ first visit to the border since the military announced that over 7,000 U.S. troops would go to or near the border with Mexico as a caravan of Central American migrants slowly heads to the United States.
