Trump threatens Mexico over migrant caravan

Mexico sends federal forces to its southern border as migrant caravan heads north

"I am watching the Democrat Party-led (because they want Open Borders and existing weak laws) assault on our country by Guatemala, Honduras and El Salvador, whose leaders are doing little to stop this large flow of people, INCLUDING MANY CRIMINALS, from entering Mexico to U.S." the president wrote.

Mexico dispatched additional police to its southern border, after the Casa del Migrante migrant shelter in Tecun Uman on the Guatemalan side of the border reported that hundreds of Hondurans had already arrived there.

The president took to Twitter Thursday, saying if Mexico fails to intervene then the USA military will close the border completely.

In a string of tweets, Mr Trump also said the issue was more important to him than the new trade deal with Mexico to replace the North American Free Trade Agreement pact.

President Trump's watching his worst nightmare unfold - more than 1,500 immigrants marching from Honduras to the US, and he's vowing our troops will stop them. if Mexico can't get the job done.

Numerous more than 2,000 Hondurans in a migrant caravan trying to wend its way to the United States left spontaneously with little more than the clothes on their backs and what they could quickly throw into backpacks.

In his third tweet of the morning, the president called the caravan part of an "an assault on our country by Guatemala, Honduras and El Salvador" - and he accused Democrats of leading the effort through their support of open borders and a weak enforcement of USA immigration laws.

Now, he has been arrested alongside three migrants near the Guatemala-Mexico border.

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

Mysterious paralyzing illness reported in 22 states — CDC
There have been cases each year since, but the numbers have been higher on alternate years. "You can't tie it up in a neat bow". Sixty-two cases of the rare but serious condition have now been confirmed in 22 states, including Pennsylvania and New Jersey.

Trump has threatened to cut aid to Honduras and Guatemala if their governments do not stop the caravan.

Mexico's Foreign Ministry responded with a statement on Thursday that it would ask the United Nations refugee agency for help coordinating with Central American governments related to people seeking refugee status at the country's southern border.

The group has swollen in size since leaving San Pedro Sula, one of the world's most unsafe cities, on Friday.

"Republicans must make the horrendous, weak and outdated immigration laws, and the Border, a part of the Midterms!" he said.

Vigil said he believes Trump is partly to blame for the recent exodus from Honduras because of USA involvement in the country's contested presidential election past year. In April, the president did deploy the National Guard to assist at the border, a move previously done by both President George W. Bush and President Barack Obama.

Thousands of people and goods legally cross the US-Mexico border daily.

While Trump is threatening to eliminate aid, Vice President Mike Pence and Secretary of State Mike Pompeo have been pushing efforts to improve USA ties in Central America to reduce the flow of migrants.

Arpaio applauded Trump's warning of possible financial penalties for Central American nations if the threats to the US border are not addressed.

"We're going to take care of our relationship with the United States government", he said.
