President Trump Announces Aid Cuts to Multiple Countries Over Illegal Caravan

It was clear though that more migrants were continuing to join the caravan.

President Trump, who's been unable to win changes to US laws, has pressured Honduras - the source of most of this caravan's members - as well as Guatemala and Mexico, which the caravan must travel through to reach the USA, to do more. "Criminals and unknown Middle Easterners are mixed in", he said on Twitter.

Trump added, in a misspelled tweet: "I have alerted Border Patrol and Military that this is a National Emergy". Watch Pete Hegseth bring that up in the video above, and make the leap to tie that comment to the caravan of immigrants.

WASHINGTON-President Trump on Monday said the US would cut off or "substantially reduce" foreign aid to El Salvador, Guatemala and Honduras, as a caravan of thousands of Central American migrants-many of whom crossed the Mexican border illegally-continued its journey toward the U.S. He claimed, without evidence, that Central American countries were allowing "many criminals" to enter the U.S.

More than 3,400 Hondurans migrants were returned to their home country over the weekend, according to a migrant assistance body.

According to a press release by the U.S. Department of State, the United States is closely following the migrant invasion force, in which thousands of nationals from Honduras and other countries continue to make a unsafe journey through Guatemala and into Mexico.

Later Sunday, authorities in Guatemala said another group of about 1,000 migrants had entered that country from Honduras. The president has also criticized Mexico for failing to stop the crowd.

He pleaded guilty to violently assaulting Jacobs on May 24, 2017, the night before his election to the House of Representatives. Never", Trump said of Gianforte.

"People have to apply for asylum in Mexico first, and if they fail to do that, the U.S. will turn them away".

An earlier caravan in the spring led to the US government amassing about 2,400 National Guard troops from four states near the southern border, although they are prevented by law from performing law enforcement duties or interacting with migrants.

Mexico's government have also said they would listen to requests for asylum from the travellers but if anyone refuses, the government says they will force them to leave.

Early this morning, United States President, Donald Trump dropped a bombshell announcement on Guatemala, Honduras and El Salvador.

He said the migrants' rights must be protected as they break into Mexico and head north.

Trump had warned Mexico's government last week "in the strongest of terms", to halt the caravan's advance, and threatened to rip up a recently signed trade agreement with Mexico if Enrique Peña Nieto's government doesn't act to stop illegal immigration.
