The White House had notified Congress that it plans to allocate $20 million in foreign assistance aid to Mexico, to help the country deport undocumented Central American immigrants.

The move is intended to stem the flow of immigrants into the U.S. and comes after Pres. Trump insisted for years that Mexico would give money to the U.S. for border protection.
