Mexican national guard forces will begin deploying to the country's southern border as part of an immigration enforcement deal reached with the U.S., Mexican Foreign Minister Marcelo Ebrard said Wednesday.

"Starting from today, and in the coming days, the deployment is going to progress rapidly," Ebrard said in a news conference with Mexican President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador, according to Reuters.

In the deal the U.S. and Mexico signed Friday, Mexico agreed to step up efforts to stop the flow of migrants fleeing Guatemala, Honduras and El Salvador and traveling through Mexico. The agreement averted the imposition of tariffs on Mexican goods, which President Donald Trump threatened to implement if Mexico did not increase its immigration enforcement.

The Mexican national guard, which was created earlier this year, is part of a civilian security ministry. Military soldiers and police have been stationed at some places along the southern Mexican border to help immigration authorities, according to The Associated Press.

Ebrard said the amount Mexico will spend on border security will be announced Friday, according to Reuters. Lopez Obrador said some of the funding will come from the sale of the former presidential plane and other aircraft.

The foreign minister also said Mexico has implemented a working group in those three Central American countries – known collectively as the Northern Triangle – to attempt to decrease the flow of migrants.
