Mexico has deployed army and police reinforcements to a border highway connecting to Texas. Those troops were deployed on Sunday as officials in the state of Nuevo Leon have been working to secure the highway.

The area is dominated by drug cartels and is a major border crossing to and from Laredo, Texas. Thousands of travelers use this freeway each day to cross the border in and out of Laredo.

“With the National Guard, we have been patrolling the highway on the Nuevo Leon side,” Jorge Fernando Garza of Nuevo Leon Civil Force Commissary explained. “There are also parts in which the National Guard, Civil Force, and the Army Guard dissuade and search for individuals who are looking to harm people.”

In the past few months, over 40 travelers have gone missing from the highway and nearly 20 have been robbed.
