Representantives from the governments of Mexico and the United States held the first meeting on policies and practices for the use of force at the border by U.S. Border Patrol and Customs agents at Mexico’s Ministry of Foreign Relations (SRE).

The meeting was a result of an agreement between both countries during Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson's visit to Mexico in March in which Secretary Johnson, President  Enrique Peña Nieto, and Foreign Secretary  José Antonio Meade agreed to extend and continue the dialogue in order to prevent violence at the border.
