Donald Trump warns Honduras to stop migrant caravan headed for U.S.

Donald Trump warns Honduras to stop migrant caravan headed for U.S.

Pence told Central American leaders at the conference last week that the US would provide more support for efforts to improve economic opportunity and social conditions if they would do the same.

US President Donald Trump said US aid to Honduras will be stopped unless its government stops a so-called "caravan" from heading towards the US border. Trump announced on Twitter.

'We are seriously concerned about the caravan of migrants traveling north from Honduras, with false promises of entering the United States by those who seek to exploit their compatriots, ' the U.S. Embassy in Honduras said in a statement on Sunday evening.

Reuters could not independently verify the number of participants, but images showed a group carrying backpacks and clogging roads near the border, some waving the Honduran flag.

Trump did not follow through on a similar threat to the Central American nation in April over an earlier caravan, which eventually petered out.

Meanwhile, Trump threatened to cut off aid to Honduras if they allow the march to continue. The Trump administration congratulated Hernandez on his victory in December after a month-long standoff with his opponent, who also claimed to have won the November election.

Mara also previously expressed his frustration about Beckham's dog-peeing touchdown celebration last season. However, he backed head coach Pat Shurmur and new general manager Dave Gettleman to arrest the slide.

The government said it will act to stop the caravan from crossing into Guatemala.

The development came just days after Pence met with Honduran President Juan Orlando Hernandez, President Jimmy Morales of Guatemala and Vice President Oscar Ortiz of El Salvador, asking them to step up and help combat illegal immigration in return for help from the U.S.

Honduran President Juan Orlando Hernandez lamented that the United States had been cutting its funding, and voiced concerns over the reunification of migrant families illegally crossing the American border.

China is strengthening ties with Central America. "Mexico is doing very little, if not NOTHING, at stopping people from flowing into Mexico through their Southern Border, and then into the U.S. They laugh at our dumb immigration laws". Guatemalan police initially blocked the migrants, but the group was ultimately able to cross, according to Reuters. In August, El Salvador broke off diplomatic relations with Taiwan in favour of China, citing economic reasons and following on the heels of Panama in 2017.

Honduras is one of a dwindling number of countries that still has formal diplomatic ties with Taiwan.
