    The head of Mexico's immigration agency, Tonatiuh Guillén, tendered his resignation to President Andrés Manuel López Obrador on Friday, according to the Associated Press. It is unclear whether Guillén quit voluntarily or was asked to step down.

    López Óbrador acknowledged earlier Friday that controls are lacking at dozens of migrant crossing points at the country's southern border, and vowed to correct the situation.

    "We have identified 68 crossings like that, and in all of them there will be oversight," said López Óbrador during a morning news conference.
    The president, who took office Dec. 1, attributed the problem to residual corruption at the National Migration Institute and the customs agency and noted that more than 500 immigration workers have been let go as part of a purge.
    We are cleaning house, but this work takes time,” López Obrador said. -AP
    Mexico has taken steps over the past few months to step up enforcement in southern Mexico - seeing up highway checkpoints and more recently raiding a Central American migrant caravan to keep them from boarding the infamous northbound train known as "the beast."
    Trump to step up asylum returns

    Also on Friday, a Mexican immigration official announced that the United States would be doubling the number of asylum seekers it sends back to Mexico from El Paso, Texas.
    Luis Carlos Cano, a spokesman for Mexico’s national immigration agency in Ciudad Juarez, across the border from El Paso, said starting Thursday some 200 asylum seekers per day were being sent back, up from 100 previously.
    Under pressure from U.S. President Donald Trump, Mexico agreed last week to expand the program, known as the Migrant Protection Protocols, which forces mostly Central American asylum seekers arriving at the U.S. southern border to remain in Mexico to await the outcome of their U.S. asylum claims. -Reuters
    The program, 'Remain in Mexico' has returned close to 12,000 people to Mexico since January.

    Long lines of migrants, mostly Central Americans, line up daily outside the Tapachula offices of the refugee agencies of Mexico and the United Nations.
    Meanwhile, a polyglot throng including people from Africa, Asia and the Caribbean regularly gathers at the local headquarters of the National Institute of Immigration, Mexico's agency for migrant affairs.
    Almost all those seeking help have a common destination - the United States - but they find themselves caught in an expanding Mexican immigration crackdown prompted by U.S. pressure and marooned in this sweltering city in southern Mexico.


    In recent weeks, Mexican authorities have set up immigration checkpoints along the main northbound highway and have been aggressively detaining and deporting thousands of migrants.
    The law enforcement squeeze seems destined to tighten with Mexico's vow to deploy some 6,000 National Guard forces to its southern border as part of a deal reached last week with the Trump administration to avert U.S. tariffs.


    The Mexican strategy is a familiar one: Position checkpoints on the limited number of roads radiating north from the notoriously porous Guatemalan border, which stretches for some 600 miles along jungle, mountain and river terrain. The idea is to bottle up and detain migrants in the south. Mexico also appears to have stepped up enforcement against northbound freight trains, another popular mode of migrant travel.
    In March, the Mexican interior minister, Olga Sanchez Cordero, said Mexico planned to create an enforcement containment belt along the Isthmus of Tehuantepec, Mexico's narrowest point, about 125 miles across from the Pacific to the Gulf of Mexico, to keep the migrant flow from advancing north.
    The current scenario in the southern state of Chiapas is far removed from the atmosphere of months past, when tens of thousands of Central Americans - both in organized caravans and in small groups - moved freely through the corridor. Many were quickly granted humanitarian visas as part of Mexican President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador's vow to assist migrants. The welcome mat has now been yanked.
    Mexican officials reported deporting more than 30,000 foreigners during April and May, almost 70% more than during the same period a year earlier. Police also broke up the two most recent northbound migrant caravans, arresting hundreds.

    Migrants who make it to Tapachula, some 20 miles north of the Guatemalan border, say they have little choice but to remain and apply for immigration paperwork - visas, temporary visitor permits, refugee status or departure documents that give recipients 30 days to get out of Mexico. But it has become a tortuous waiting game.

    Mexican officials have detained nearly 800 undocumented migrants discovered in four trucks in eastern Mexico in four trucks
    Mexico's National Migration Institute (INM) said in a statement late on Saturday that 791 foreign nationals were found in the trucks stopped in the eastern state of Veracruz, confirming earlier reports of mass arrests.
    The discovery of the illegal immigrants was one of the biggest swoops by the INM in recent months.

    Mexico's efforts to slow Central American migration across its territory showed some bite Monday as some people turned around to head south in the face of increased enforcement, while government officials said they would target human smuggling rings.One government official announced that the 6,000 National Guard members who officials had repeatedly said would be sent to the southern border will actually be distributed across the northern border and other areas as well, while another suggested measures were showing results.
    A senior Mexican official, who requested anonymity to discuss negotiations with the U.S., said that three weeks ago about 4,200 migrants were arriving at the U.S. border daily and that now that number has dropped to about 2,600 per day. The official warned it was too early to draw conclusions from such a small window, but that Mexico was optimistic its measures would work.
    On the Suchiate river that forms part of Mexico's southern border with Guatemala, usually bustling cross-water commerce appeared to slow at this border town a day after just a half dozen marines showed up on the Mexican shore.
    Tomas Leyva, a 65-year-old construction worker turned pastor from El Salvador, was preparing to board a raft back to Guatemala. Saying he fled his home under threat from a gang, he planned to return later to Mexico vis the border bridge and apply for asylum at an official immigration control station .
