Trump Threatens To Send Military To Block Honduran Migrant Caravan

This is the second time a caravan of migrants have gotten together and seem intent on pushing towards and across the US/Mexico border.  As a result of the news, President Donald Trump has threatened to send the military to the border to block them.

Reuters reports on the caravan.

More Honduran migrants tried to join a caravan of several thousand trekking through Guatemala on Wednesday, defying calls by authorities not to make the journey after U.S. President Donald Trump threatened to cut off regional aid in reprisal.

The caravan has been growing steadily since it left the violent Honduran city of San Pedro Sula on Saturday. The migrants hope to reach Mexico and then cross its northern border with the United States, to seek refuge from endemic violence and poverty in Central America.

Several thousand people are now part of the caravan, according to a Reuters witness traveling with the group in Guatemala, where men women and children on foot and riding in trucks filled a road on their long journey to Mexico.

In a series of tweets on Thursday, President Trump said the right things.

“I must, in the strongest of terms, ask Mexico to stop this onslaught – and if unable to do so I will call up the U.S. Military and CLOSE OUR SOUTHERN BORDER!” Trump wrote on Twitter.

“Hopefully Mexico will stop this onslaught at their Northern Border,” he added. “All Democrats fault for weak laws!”

Not only did Trump threaten to send the military to the border, but he also threatened to stop all federal payments to Guatemala, Honduras, and El Salvador if they didn’t block the caravan.
