Trump threatens to 'close border' over Central America caravan

Trump appears to threaten USMCA deal when lashing out at migrant caravan

In another, he suggested that the "onslaught" of immigrants could undermine a recently announced reworked trade deal with Mexico and Canada, writing that immigration is "far more important to me, as President, than Trade".

President Trump is slamming the left for being weak on border security, while also demanding Mexico stop the large influx of immigrants approaching the southern border.

The president took to Twitter Thursday, saying if Mexico fails to intervene then the USA military will close the border completely.

Trump also said that if a solution is not found, it could upend the new trade deal negotiated between Mexico and the United States. Earlier this year, some National Guard members were deployed to the border on a limited mission that does not include contact with migrants.

The leader of a group who led a caravan of hundreds of migrants towards the United States border last spring has been arrested by Mexican authorities.

Under this plan, if a migrant evaded the new system and traveled through Mexico into the United States, Mexico's government would in future allow the person to be returned to Mexico, Fox News said, citing an unnamed official.

Now, he has been arrested alongside three migrants near the Guatemala-Mexico border.

Trump has made security on the southern border one of the signature issues of his two-year presidency, calling for a "wall" and frequently railing against what he describes as a flood of rapists, gangs and "bad hombres".

The Honduran government has urged people not to join the caravan, but the government of Guatemala is powerless to stop its progress, as citizens of Honduras, Guatemala, El Salvador, and Nicaragua can freely move between the four countries showing only an ID card.

Samsung Electronics: Samsung Electronics buys network analysis firm Zhilabs in 5G push
The acquisition, according to Samsung, is about helping the company get better prepared for the era of widespread 5G availability. Samsung Electronics has announced its acquisition of Zhilabs, a company that offers AI-based network and service analytics.

The statement warned that anyone who enters Mexico in an "irregular manner" faces detention and deportation.

In April, he said in a meeting with foreign leaders that the U.S.is "going to be guarding our border with our military".

Because children are afforded special protections in the USA, their arrival is creating anxiety within the Trump administration that has pledged to decrease illegal immigration.

The last caravan numbered more than 1,200 people at its highest point with 300 of those people having crossed into the US. It was at that time that President Trump deployed National Guard troops along the border and threatened to rip up the North American Free Trade Agreement, or NAFTA.

"Republicans must make the horrendous, weak and outdated immigration laws, and the Border, a part of the Midterms!" he said.

Initial election results showed opposition challenger Salvador Nasralla with a 5-percentage-point lead over incumbent President Juan Orlando Hernandez.

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 Pena Nieto.

If a person or persons is determined to have a legitimate claim, they will undergo a United Nations process of being placed in a host country, which could ultimately be the USA or any other country that has an agreement with the UNHCR, the official said.

"We are not leaving because we want to", he said.
