President Donald Trump delivers speech on immigration and border security

Trump had previously thanked Mexico for deploying anti-riot forces to the country´s southern border, and White House spokeswoman Sarah Sanders said on Fox News Wednesday that "Mexico has stepped up in an unprecedented way".

Trump this week has dispatched more than 5,000 troops to the southern USA border with Mexico to block a caravan of several thousand migrants, many of them women and children, from entering the U.S.

The groups of migrants Trump has sought to cast as a threat to the United States are still in southern Mexico, hundreds of miles (kilometers) from the U.S. border.

But administration officials claim that many asylum-seekers are exploiting "loopholes" in the law to gain entry to the U.S. Trump insisted that asylum-seekers are reading off a prepared script when they claim they would face danger back home.

Behind them, a third group of migrants from El Salvador had already made it to Guatemala, and on Wednesday a fourth group of about 700 Salvadorans set out from the capital, San Salvador, with plans to walk to the US border, 1,500 miles away.

Reported by the Wall Street Journal, a total of 5,000 troops will be deployed to the southwest border by the US military.

This comes after Mexican officials warned some migrants in Guatemala are building makeshift bombs to use against police officers guarding the border between Mexico and Guatemala.

On Wednesday, it said more than 7,000 troops would support the Department of Homeland Security along the border.

"We're stopping people at the border", Trump said.

Trump pays tribute at Pittsburgh synagogue
Rabbi Josh Brown from Temple Israel said the tragedy at Tree of Life was very real and painful for his Akron congregation. Bowers has been charged with 29 counts of criminal activity , including hate crimes and using a firearm to commit murder.

German Chancellor Angela Merkel stepping down as party leader
The CDU lost ten percentage points in Hesse compared to 2013, a fortnight after losses on a similar scale in Bavaria . But according to German public radio, Merkel wants to stay on even after handing over the party leadership.

With his eyes squarely on Tuesday's contests, Trump has rushed a series of immigration declarations, promises and actions as he tries to mobilize supporters to retain Republican control of Congress.

The caravan of migrants is still hundreds of miles from the border. Trump said that policy ends today and illegal aliens will be detained until they are fully processed to deportation.

Trump played the traditional presidential role of healer-in-chief at the Tree of Life synagogue, laying memorial stones and spending more than an hour at a nearby hospital with the widow of one of the slain.

"As far as the caravan is concerned, our military is out".

"Continue on to the United States, that is the first objective", said Carlos Enrique Carcamo, a 50-year-old boat mechanic. "We don't do stunts in this department", he said. "The United States can not possibly absorb them all", Trump said during a news conference at the White House. He also tweeted: "We will NOT let these Caravans, which are also made up of some very bad thugs and gang members, into the U.S. Our Border is sacred, must come in legally".

President Donald Trump further hardened his pre-election anti-immigration rhetoric in a Florida campaign stop on Wednesday, after threatening to deploy as many as 15 000 soldiers on the Mexican border - equal to the size of the U.S. contingent in Afghanistan.

Trump then took another shot at the caravan.

On another immigration front, Trump said this week he would seek to scrap the constitutional right of citizenship for USA -born children of non-citizens and illegal immigrants, saying he would issue an executive order on so-called birthright citizenship.
