Mexico seeks assistance from United Nations for migrant caravan

20 October, 2018, 04:25
Mr Trump had earlier this week threatened to withhold aid to the region as a caravan with several thousand Honduran migrants travelled through Guatemala to Mexico in the hope of crossing into the United States to escape violence and poverty.
Meanwhile, in a tweet today, the U.S. president threatened to cut USA humanitarian aid to Honduras if the caravan was allowed to arrive at the border.
Photos posted online show some of the migrants breaking down the fence's gate and continuing towards the border bridge.
Waving Honduran flags and carrying umbrellas to protect against the sun, the migrants arrived earlier at the Guatemalan side of the muddy Suchiate River that divides the country from Mexico, noisily demanding they be let in.
In a series of raging tweets, the USA president urged Mexico to "stop this onslaught" and prevent the would-be immigrants from entering the US.
The exhausted travelers are mostly from Honduras, but migrants from other Central American countries have joined the caravan.
Trump took things up a notch, falsely accusing Democrats wanting "Open Borders" and leading the "assault on our country" by a "large flow of people, INCLUDING MANY CRIMINALS". Mexico reportedly responded by sending police to its own southern border to stop the caravan from coming through after the threat was made.
Throughout the week, federal police aircraft arrived in the city of Tapachula, near the border with Guatemala, with hundreds of federal officers equipped with antiriot gear.

Pompeo said he and Videgaray spoke of the importance of stopping the caravan before it reaches the US border.
The president announced plans in April to send thousands of National Guard troops to the border, where they could remain until his promised wall is constructed.
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.
In April, Mexican immigration officials had some success in dispersing the smaller caravan by processing many who made a decision to seek refugee status in Mexico, but some did continue on to the USA border where they were processed over several days.
Mexico says people arriving at the border will be able to apply for refugee status, and has asked for help from the United Nations refugee agency.
