Trump Thanks Mexico for Deterring Migrant Caravan

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

Migrants broke down the gates at the border crossing and began streaming toward a bridge into Mexico. Later, he retweeted a video of Mexican federal police arriving at the Guatemalan border and wrote: "Thank you Mexico, we look forward to working with you!"

The Mexican government is "fully engaged" and is making all the necessary decisions to address the issue, Pompeo emphasized, expressing support for the government's plans to call in the United Nations to set up a migrant processing center.

Back on the bridge, police eventually regained order, but the migrants' mission north continues.

Some are chanting "Walk!" In a separate interview with Milenio television, he accused people not part of the caravan of attacking police with firecrackers and rocks.

Guatemalan President Jimmy Morales told the Conference for Prosperity and Security in Central America last week that "not only have we arrested them within our territory, but they have been deported to their countries of origin". The last one reached the USA border in the spring.

When confronted by reporters en route to the border, many migrants have said they are hoping to reach the U.S.to find work. "Orderly, with established procedures, never through violence or force as a group of people attempted".

Thousands of migrants are about to be at Mexico's doorstep.

About 50 migrants managed to push their way through. Some in the caravan threw rocks.

What awaited them across the border was uncertain.

Multiple migrants, federal police and journalists were wounded. In some places in the area, the US has installed three layers of walls and fencing.

Carrying backpacks and small children, many simply sat down on the bridge.

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.

The caravan of disorganized women, men and children headed toward the border post Friday morning.

"One way or another, we will pass", they changed, clambering atop to USA -donated military jeeps parked at the scene as Guatemalan police looked on.

Vaughan also pointed out that Guatemala has already caved into the caravan, but she is encouraged that Mexico has deployed officers to its southern border. Some of them talked among themselves. Late Thursday, some 300 Mexican federal police officers equipped with antiriot gear were deployed to the border crossing ahead of the caravan's expected arrival.

Earlier Friday, Mexico's ambassador to Guatemala said his country meant to enforce what he called a policy of orderly entry in the face of the thousands trying to cross.

The United States provides millions of dollars in aid to countries like El Salvador, Honduras, and Guatemala, Trump noted.

"There is nothing there", Orellana said.

He said "many criminals" were coming into the United States from Central America.

Members of the caravan began arriving in recent days in Ciudad Tecún Umán, a Guatemalan border city, where they slept in migrant shelters and in plazas and parks.

A handful of migrants jumped into the Suchiate River below to swim for rafts. During a presidential debate, Lopez Obrador indicated his administration would stop doing "dirty work" for the United States by detaining Central American migrants. "It's the third time that I'm trying to cross", the 22-year-old Salvadoran said.

"That's a big step", he said at the time.
