Trump threatens to close southern U.S. border over caravan of migrants

Trump threatens to send army to US-Mexico border in migrant row

The president's tweets come after more than 2,000 Honduran migrants hoping to come to the USA resumed their travel northward Wednesday even hours after Trump warned "anybody entering the United States illegally will be arrested and detained" in a tweet.

Here is a look at the differences between the Guatemala-Mexico border and the U.S. -Mexico border between Tijuana and San Diego where members of a migrant caravan arrived last spring.

Mexican authorities, in a bid to soothe Mr Trump's fury and to deter the migrants, without appearing to violate worldwide law, have asked the United Nations to set up a migrant processing centre near its southern border. It was at that time that President Trump deployed National Guard troops along the border and threatened to rip up the North American Free Trade Agreement, or NAFTA.

The caravan, full of some 3,000 migrants, had planned to try to enter Mexico around 11 a.m. local time (CST) on Friday, with some trying to get through main border entrances and others crossing the river on rafts.

It was explaining the options to migrants and helping those who chose to apply for refugee status to navigate the lengthy process.

"We hope that in this big caravan group, they let us in", he added, referring to the United States. The official said on September 20, Border Patrol encountered 275 adults and children.

The caravan arrived at the border in southern Mexico on Thursday but turned around Friday, the Associated Press reported. Gaetz suggested in his tweet that Soros was paying this group of people to "join" a caravan and "storm" the USA border.

This is the 10th outbreak since 1976 in Congo, where the virus is endemic, and the second this year. In fact, he said the disease was being brought under control in North Kivu province.

In other posts, Trump claimed that many in the caravan are criminals.

Hundreds of Honduran migrants stand at the shore of the Suchiate river on the border between Guatemala and Mexico, in Tecun Uman, Guatemala, Thursday, Oct. 18, 2018. Pompeo thanked Mexico for its efforts to address the migrant flow, including calling in the United Nations for assistance. A number say they hope to reach the United States, where it's thought they could reach the border in the next few weeks.

Trump has made it clear to Mexico that he is monitoring its response.

Lieutenant Colonel Jamie Davis, a Pentagon spokesman, said that while National Guard troops were now supporting the Department of Homeland Security on the USA southern border, the Pentagon had not been tasked to provide additional support. There are no official estimates of the size of the group.

President Donald Trump took to Twitter to threaten Honduras with foreign aid cuts if the migrants aren't stopped. He also gleefully pointed out that Gianforte's assault may have helped him win his election.

The Honduran Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation urged citizens to stop participating in the caravan, as it could put their lives at risk.
