Trump Threatens Military Action If Mexico Doesn't Stop Migrant Caravan

Trump digs in on immigration amid family separation crisis

In morning tweets, Trump repeated vows to halt US aid to Central American countries that do not disband the caravan and issued a fresh threat to the Mexican government, which said Wednesday that it would treat those in the caravan no differently than it does other migrants.

Mr Trump's threat came as US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo prepared to travel later in the day to Panama and then Mexico City, where he was to meet with Mexican President Enrique Pea Nieto on Friday.

".The assault on our country at our Southern Border, including the Criminal elements and DRUGS pouring in, is far more important to me, as President, than Trade or the USMCA".

President Donald Trump took a break from defending the Saudi royal family, believed to have ordered the execution of a WaPo columnist, to whip up his base before the midterm elections with some good old fashioned Twitter fear mongering.

President Trump is again ramping up his rhetoric on an issue he said he hopes can energize his Republican base heading into the midterms, with an all-caps threat to shut down the southern US border if Mexico doesn't stop the "onslaught" of a caravan of migrants fleeing Honduras.

Trump has made migrant caravans a symbol of all that is wrong with US immigration policies.

EU likely to reject Italy’s budget, but no decision yet: Oettinger
A survey by pollster Demopolis on Friday showed 52 percent backed the plan, compared with 38 percent who gave it the thumbs down. The EU executive has never taken this step since it was given beefed-up powers in 2013.

Trump appeared willing to end his new trade deal with Mexico if the caravan was not stopped.

U.S. secretary of state Mike Pompeo is preparing to set off on a tour of the region.

Mexico's foreign ministry did not immediately respond to a request for comment. Dwindling in numbers along the way, the caravan totalled around 150 migrants by the time it reached Tijuana, at the USA border.

The migrants say they organized for the long and hard journey on social media, but Washington suspects the group has been organized as a deliberate provocation. Earlier this year, some National Guard members were deployed to the border on a limited mission that does not include contact with migrants.

But at least five USA states later refused to send the troops amid an outcry over a since-abandoned White House policy to separate migrant children from their parents at the border.
