Trump Threatens Military Closure at U.S. Border to Stop Migrants

Another Illegal Alien Caravan is Headed for the U.S. and President Trump Just Issued Them a Warning Donald Trump slams Democrats for being weak on border as migrant caravan approaches
Ellis Copeland | 18 October, 2018, 20:26

On Twitter, Trump said he wanted "Mexico to stop this onslaught", or he will use the military to "CLOSE OUR SOUTHERN BORDER".

Meanwhile, a Honduran caravan of migrants headed for the USA border has grown to 4,000.

"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", he said. The president has said repeatedly that he thinks immigration should be a top issue on the campaign trail, as Republicans are fighting hard for control of the House and Senate.

Now more than 2,000 people - including many who left home so quickly they brought only backpacks - are making their way from Honduras, traveling through Guatemala and heading toward the U.S., The Associated Press reports.

Heeding Trump's warning, the Mexican government has sent 500 additional federal police to its border with Guatemala in anticipation of the migrant caravan's arrival. And it is also true that previous migrant flows have already exhausted our government's resources for detaining asylum-seekers and processing their claims (although, this is partly because the Trump administration refuses to expand alternatives to mass detention, largely out of a principled commitment to treating migrants with wanton cruelty).

No evidence has emerged of criminal affiliations among the migrants.

The Washington Post reported this week that Border Patrol agents arrested 16,658 family members in September, the highest one-month total on record and an 80 per cent increase from July, according to unpublished Department of Homeland Security statistics.

Trump has frequently portrayed undocumented immigrants to the U.S. as a criminal threat and in league with Democrats - a tactic also adopted by many Republican candidates in the ongoing mid-term election campaign.

The president's warning echoes an earlier tweet on Wednesday, in which he again blasted Democrats for refusing to approve tighter border control and immigration laws. "Hopefully Mexico will stop this onslaught at their Northern Border", Trump wrote, referring to the newest trade deal known as the United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement.
