Trump threatens to 'close border' over Central America caravan

Trump threatens to 'close border' over Central America caravan

The group of would-be immigrants, which has now grown to as many as 4,000 people, left Honduras and plans to head through Mexico toward the U.S. border, infuriating Trump.

The sea of humanity - which started last week with fewer than 200 people - is now approaching Mexico, hell-bent on steaming toward the USA border. "All Democrats fault for weak laws!"

The president's comments come 19 days before the midterm elections, in which he is focusing on rallying his base over his central campaign issue of hardening USA immigration policy.

U.S. President Donald Trump is lashing out over a caravan of Central American migrants trying to reach the United States, saying that if Mexico does not stop the effort, he will use the military to "CLOSE OUR SOUTHERN BORDER".

The president wrote: "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".

President says no more money will be given to Honduras, Guatemala and El Salvador if the caravan is not stopped; William La Jeunesse reports on the march to America.

According to a statement Major League Baseball released Wednesday, the Astros were indeed caught doing something. It's still fishy and the league told the Astros not to do that anymore and report it to the proper authorities.

Nancy Messonnier, director of CDC's National Center for Immunization and Respiratory Diseases , told reporters on Tuesday. It is a rare, but serious condition - fewer than one in a million Americans will get AFM every year, the CDC estimates.

In fact, we have long known that native-born Americans commit violent crimes at far higher rates than either legal or undocumented immigrants.

Organizers reportedly have paid cash to an unknown number of the marchers; and numerous marchers interviewed by journalists appear to have been coached by somebody to say they are heading to the USA because of the poverty and rampant crime in their home countries.

A similar caravan of migrants made the journey to the U.S. in April, taking the same route from Honduras to the United States, via Guatemala and Mexico.

The reason is USA aid is insignificant compared to the billions of dollars such immigrants routinely send back to their families at home.

The official also said the migrant caravan will be a "prominent" topic of discussion at those meetings.

The president announced plans in April to send thousands of National Guard troops to the border, where they could remain until his promised wall is constructed. Some have said they are fleeing gang violence, and are traveling as a group for protection from criminal gangs.
