US, Mexico meet to discuss border security

The United States and Mexico are set to meet Tuesday to discuss ways to improve border security and border enforcement, US State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki said Tuesday.

Psaki told reporters the meeting will be focused on the two countries’ relationship on immigration, and that the United States has long supported Mexico’s push for more border enforcement and increased border security.

Psakis said President Donald Trump will attend.

Psakes the US is willing to work with Mexico and others to develop a comprehensive immigration reform plan that would make our border more secure, Psaki added.

She did not say when the meeting would take place.

The Trump administration has faced criticism over the border, particularly in recent months over the number of people crossing into the US illegally and at the cost of hundreds of thousands of lives.
