A migrant caravan, now estimated anywhere from 5,000 to 10,000 people, which originated in Honduras, continues its march towards the United States, while President Donald Trump blamed the Democrats said that the United States will “begin cutting off, or substantially reducing, the massive foreign aid” to three Central American countries.
In spite of a recent announcement by Mexican Ambassador to the U.S. Geronimo Gutierrez of a deal with the US and submitting a request to the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) establish shelters along its southern border with Central America – the migrant caravan continues to grow from an estimated 4,000, at the time of his announcement, to now anywhere between 5,000-10,000 refugees who are vowing to reach the United States.
Trump alerts military and border control
On Monday, President Donald Trump tweeted: “Sadly, it looks like Mexico’s Police and Military are unable to stop the Caravan heading to the Southern Border of the United States. Criminals and unknown Middle Easterners are mixed in. I have alerted Border Patrol and Military that this is a National Emergency. Must change laws!”
Trump threatens says US will aid to Central America
On Monday, President Trump tweeted: “Guatemala, Honduras and El Salvador were not able to do the job of stopping people from leaving their country and coming illegally to the U.S. We will now begin cutting off, or substantially reducing, the massive foreign aid routinely given to them.”
Trump places blame on the Democrats
On Monday, Trump tweeted: “Every time you see a Caravan, or people illegally coming, or attempting to come, into our Country illegally, think of and blame the Democrats for not giving us the votes to change our pathetic Immigration Laws! Remember the Midterms! So unfair to those who come in legally.”
