Presidential Twitter tirade on Mexico's migrant caravan: The truth behind the noise

Presidential Twitter tirade on Mexico's migrant caravan: The truth behind the noise

Some Central American migrants moving as a caravan through Mexico will reportedly break up into smaller groups to try and cross the USA border.

According to the Associated Press, the Mexican government announced that 465 illegal aliens had officially applied for transit visas.

He watches the news daily to get an update on the estimated 1,000 men, women and children walking from Central America into Mexico, many of whom have hopes of seeking asylum at USA ports of entry.

"Mexico is doing very little, if not NOTHING, at stopping people from flowing into Mexico through their Southern Border, and then into the U.S.", Trump tweeted Sunday.

"We have support teams at the border if there are people who need assistance there, but they would have to travel on their own", he told AFP in the town of Matias Romero, in the southern Mexican state of Oaxaca.

Organizers said the caravan will not disperse, instead heading north soon. The number of people traveling this year is greater than that of last year.

President Trump tweeted that those in the caravan only want to take advantage of DACA and he threatened to cut off all aid to the Honduran government.

The caravan at the heart of the latest border flareup was marching northward to draw attention to the migrants' plight, with most heading to official USA border crossings to apply for asylum and some hoping to break off and cross illegally.

"Not sure why the media is acting like this isn't a well-established fact - women and young girls are brutally victimized on the journey north, strikes me as quite freakish that reporters would try to cover up the gross atrocities perpetrated by smugglers and coyotes", White House press secretary Sarah Sanders said in a statement after Trump's comments.

"Five migrants who were part of the caravan arrived here this week, but they're already gone", he said.

"We are looking for some reaction, some change in the policies", Mujica said.

Jorge de Santiago, a maquiladora worker whose house sits right on the border, said of the deployment: "It looks bad, but it doesn't do much".

On Wednesday, the Mexican Foreign Ministry reported that officials repatriated some 400 caravan migrants, sending them back to their native countries. In 2014, the USA wrestled with what to do with the more than 68,000 children who had crossed the southern border, many of them unaccompanied.

"I couldn't wait for them to kill me, " Colindres Ortega said.

"In many places, like California, the same person votes many times. We will act only in the best interest of Mexican". Just two weeks ago Congress and President Trump approved an omnibus spending bill that includes $615 million for programs in Central American countries that address the root causes of out-migration and reform justice and security institutions. These are the types of investments - not a further militarized border - that will lead to more sustainable solutions for the United States, migrants, and their home countries.
