In early April, Mexican soldiers clashed with two US soldiers on the edge of Texas because they thought American soldiers had crossed the border into Mexico. Mexican soldiers were said to have disarmed an American soldier. The North American Command said “after a quick discussion with the soldiers of the two countries, the Mexican military forces left the region.”

At a press conference on April 24, Mexican President Andrés Manuel López Obrador pledged to investigate the case. “We will not fight against the US government. The most important thing is that we want to have mutual cooperation and respect for development,” he said.

The Mexican Ministry of Foreign Affairs described the incident as a habitual mistake in an unclear border area between the two countries.

“I think the president just wants to make it clear, as he always does, that he has many different measures to stop this crisis,” Conway said on Fox News.
