Ebrard said he is reviewing the situation at checkpoints in the border cities of Ciudad Juarez, Tijuana and Nuevo Laredo with industry associations in an attempt to find the best solutions to normalize flow.

He adds that, "right now" McAleenan is "the man".

There have been thousands of American troops deployed to the southern border over the previous year.

President Trump said Tuesday that his administration isn't bringing back the policy of family separation for migrants and blamed former President Barack Obama for putting illegal immigrant children in cages.

He thinks the separations work to deter migrants from coming.

President Donald Trump is wholly mispresenting the immigration detention policy he introduced that forced migrant children from their parents at the border.

"We are not looking to do that, no", Trump said, when asked by reporters in the Oval Office. "They are coming like it's a picnic, like 'let's go to Disney Land.' President Obama separated children".
