Pence and Pompeo Met With Mexico About Stopping Illegal Immigration. Here's How It Went.

Vice President Mike Pence and Secretary of State Mike Pompeo met with a government delegation from Mexico at the White House Wednesday afternoon about the country's failure to stop the flow of illegal immigration from Central America to the United States. Mexico faces tariffs on Monday if it can't work out a deal with the Trump administration on the issue, with concrete promises to stem the crisis.

Pence and Pompeo emerged from the meeting with a positive review, but said more work needs to be done. 

President Trump, who is traveling overseas to commemorate the 75th anniversary of D-Day, said the same.

During the meeting U.S. Customs and Border released new detention numbers for May 2019, showing an increase of more than 30 percent from the previous month.
