Mexican ambassador makes a stunning accusation about migrant caravan from Honduras

Mexican ambassador makes a stunning accusation about migrant caravan from Honduras

The Honduran migrants, trekking in a caravan toward Mexico's southern border, say they'reheaded for the United States - fleeing violence and searching for economic opportunity.

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

The caravan arrived at the border in southern Mexico on Thursday but turned around Friday, the Associated Press reported. But that would probably enrage Trump, who appears to see Mexico's responsibility as stopping migrants from reaching the USA border by any means.

US and Mexican officials have agreed on a plan to handle the Honduran migrant caravan - estimated to contain between 1,000 and 4,000 people - approaching the US-Mexico border.

Barely a week goes by without him warning about the danger posed by ultra-violent Central American gangs like MS-13, while chants of "build the wall" are a staple of his pre-midterms campaign rallies.

On Thursday, Trump said he prioritizes border security over even the recently struck trade deal to replace NAFTA, the United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement, or USMCA.

Other Twitter users agreed with Bell that some of the storylines in the older fairytales didn't age well. Some fans also pointed out how Snow White isn't the only Disney film that features questionable content.


Lieutenant Colonel Jamie Davis, a Pentagon spokesman, said that while National Guard troops were now supporting the Department of Homeland Security on the U.S. southern border, the Pentagon had not been tasked to provide additional support. "There isn't money. There's no help from the government".

Carlos Lopez, 27, said he was hopeful of securing a 40-day work visa in Mexico.

"I would like to highlight that for the Mexican government it is essential, in the first place, to respect and protect the human rights and the fundamental dignity of all of the migrants, and to do it under the logic of respectful, humanitarian treatment", said Foreign Minister Videgaray.

A caravan of vehicles carrying more than 2,000 migrants left last Saturday from the northern Honduran city of San Pedro Sula after organizing themselves on social media.

Mexico has vowed to detain any migrants who cross without visas, though it has also said it will process their asylum requests, and has asked for the United Nations refugee agency's help in doing so.

In Guatemala City, where migrant shelters filled with people, waves of people departed at daybreak on roads leading to Mexico.

Secretary of State Michael R. Pompeo will visit Mexico City on Friday to meet with Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto.

"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". Images of the migrants have prompted questions about whether the United States and Mexico will be able to strike a deal before the migrants reach the US' southern border.

One of the migrants, Juan Escobar, 24, said he had heard about Trump's comments but said they would not dissuade the migrants from continuing their journey.

The President is blaming the Democrats, this time around, for encouraging the caravans.

This past spring, when another caravan of Central American migrants crossed intoMexico, such policies allowed the group to make it to the USA border.
