USA military will shut Mexico border to stop illegal immigration

For the second year in a row, President Donald Trump is upset about a caravan of Central American migrants headed to the United States.

The migrant caravan reached the Guatemala-Mexico border on Thursday, overwhelming the border town of Tecun Uman's shelters and forcing hundreds to sleep in the town's central plaza, in the pouring rain. Defense Secretary James Mattis later authorized the National Guard to deploy up to 4,000 troops on the southern border.

But experts on refugees say those moves are unlikely to stop this caravan or stem future ones, since the migrants are primarily driven by conditions in their home countries, not US policy.

The migrants planned to wait for the rest of the caravan to arrive, then cross the border en masse in hopes of overwhelming the Mexican authorities, who have vowed to detain anyone without a visa. Believing their chances of entering the U.S. are greater in numbers, the migrants have been hitching rides and hiking through Guatemala, with the aim of approaching the United States through Mexico.

"We are going to the United States!" he shouted euphorically. The official said on September 20, Border Patrol encountered 275 adults and children.

Early Thursday he tweeted: "I must, in the strongest of terms, ask Mexico to stop this onslaught - and if unable to do so I will call up the U.S. Military and CLOSE OUR SOUTHERN BORDER!" The last one reached the USA border in the spring.

Vox declared that "Trump's "caravan" tantrum could put migrants in danger".

Mr Trump made the threat in a series of tweets, where he described the movement of migrants as an "assault on our country" by Central American nations, led by the Democratic Party.


18, the migrants were seen standing at the shore of the Suchiate River, which separates Guatemala and Mexico, raising fists and waving Honduran and Guatemalan flags.

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.

"You get in touch with the Mexican government and say that we are willing to help you with the U.S. Army across the border", Arpaio told Breitbart News in an interview.

His successor, Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador, takes office December 1.

Trump has told Mexico that he is monitoring the country's response.

The Washington Post reported this week that Border Patrol agents arrested 16,658 family members in September, the highest one-month total on record and an 80 per cent increase from July, according to unpublished Department of Homeland Security statistics.
