Trump, Mexico move to stop 2K Honduran migrants

Trump threatens to send army to US-Mexico border in migrant row

A first group of several hundred migrants arrived late on Wednesday in the border town of Tecun Uman, Guatemala, where they overflowed a local shelter, leaving many to sleep in the town square or on the street, an AFP correspondent said. A number say they hope to reach the United States, where it's thought they could reach the border in the next few weeks.

Mexico's president, Enrique Peña Nieto, is also hosting emergency talks with the U.S. secretary of state, Mike Pompeo, on Friday, to assess the situation.

USA discussions with the Mexican government have involved both the administration of outgoing president Enrique Peña Nieto and representatives of incoming president Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador, who won election in July and will take office December 1.

The exhausted travelers are mostly from Honduras, but migrants from other Central American countries have joined the caravan. If Mexican police don't get the job done. this will get interesting. "There is a lot of disposition in both the current and the incoming Mexican government to cooperate with the US on some aspects of immigration control".

Gutierrez made the rounds on cable news programs Thursday night explaining his country's position.

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo has welcomed the country's plan and assures the White House will assist in the efforts.

But foreign minister Videgaray said that was "false" and that no such deal had been made.

Hondurans have the right to free movement in some Central American countries, although there have been reports of migrants being blocked at the Guatemalan border.

She said it started as a group of 1,600 and quickly grew to 4,000 as the media fed into a narrative that those who refuse to welcome the migrants "are cruel, horrible, rotten people". The nearest border is about 110 miles (177 km) away.




Ingraham said President Trump "finally" wants to tackle the problem instead of passing it to the next president, as Barack Obama.

At a recent speaking engagement in Austin, Texas, Democratic House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi told candidates not to focus on Trump's attacks on immigrants, explaining that calling for "shutting down ICE [Immigration and Customs Enforcement]" merely "serves the president's goal". Mexico seems to have gotten the message, and is sending hundreds of federal cops to try to stem the caravan.

The president tweeted Thursday morning that Democratic Party leaders "are doing little to stop this large flow of people INCLUDING MANY CRIMINALS".

".The assault on our country at our Southern Border, including the Criminal elements and DRUGS pouring in, is far more important to me, as President, than Trade or the USMCA". And he threatened to send troops to "shut down" the southern USA border if Mexico failed to stop what he called an "onslaught".

He was referring to the United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement, which is awaiting ratification.

"Mexico also issued a very clear statement saying if somebody is seeking asylum, Mexico is there along now with the U.N.to look at those claims, we want to make sure those claims are legitimate".

"We have to secure that border once and for all", McCaul told Fox News.

Guatemala has closed its border gate and is standing guard with dozens of troops and two armored jeeps.

Their journey began in San Pedro Sula, Honduras, last week.
