translated from Spanish: The flow of migrants by National Guard down 36.2%

The migration flow on the southern border decreased by 36.2%, from three thousand 880 migrants per day to two thousand 652, with a cut from 7 June to 13 July, Chancellor Marcelo Ebrard reported.
The chancellor stressed that the reduction is the result of the deployment of the National Guard and the implementation of the immigration law. 
He added that a new meeting with U.S. authorities would be held in Washington in 45 more days, and said that Mexico would continue the effort to reduce migration flows and that immigration standards are met.

“If we are not able to have those who enter territory register, we will have thousands of people in territory without us knowing what their destination is,” the official noted.
Mexico calls on US for greater gun control
Ebrard noted that during his meeting with the U.S. Secretary of State, Mike Pompeo asked him for greater control of weapons that cross the United States into Mexico.

“We asked to organize an operation because moving weapons from the United States to Mexico is illegal,” he said at the morning conference, detailing that the review mechanisms will be implemented at the border crossings in Tijuana, Ciudad Juarez, Nuevo Laredo, Reynosa and Matamoros.
Ebrard explained that he also spoke to Pompeo about joining a binational commission to recover the assets of Sinaloa cartel and Joaquín “El Chapo” Guzmán, on the subject of Mexican tomato exports, as well as the repatriations of Mexicans.
