More than 7,000 people headed for USA in migrant caravan

Thousands of Central American migrants resumed an arduous trek toward the U.S. border Monday, with members bristling at suggestions there could be terrorists among them and saying the caravan is being used for political ends by U.S. President Donald Trump.

Late last week, Trump threatened to scrap the new U.S. -Mexico-Canada trade deal if Mexico failed to stop the caravan and, soon afterward, Mexico's foreign affairs secretary made a personal request to the UN High Commissioner for Refugees, The Washington Times reported. "If he doesn't repent, he's going to hell".

They are hoping to gain access to the United States of America to live and work, but President Trump is unhappy that so many people are attempting cross the US-Mexico border illegally.

The people in this group do not come from any one place - they come from lots of different countries. Thousands of Central American migrants now walking to the US border are doing the same, fleeing deadly violence on a trek that has drawn worldwide focus. "The crisis comes about when US border officials discourage people from political asylum, leave them on the bridges or threaten them that if they go forward with a political asylum claim, they might lose their children". As President Trump has stated, consistent with USA law, the United States will not allow illegal immigrants to enter or remain in the United States.

Trump also said the USA will start to cut aid to the countries where the migrants are from.

Migrants are fleeing widespread gang violence and poverty in the Central American states they hail from. "They will put themselves in that group".

President Donald Trump said on Monday that he'll begin "cutting off, or substantially reducing" aid to three Central American nations over migration to the United States.

With Mexico's immigration authorities controlling migration more assiduously, Central Americans were forced to take more isolated, unsafe routes where the chances of being mugged were higher.

The Department of Homeland Security issued a warning Monday, as well, voicing Trump Administration concerns that Mexican drug cartels may be using the caravan as cover.

That hasn't worked, but experts said the strategy would take up to a decade and require continued investment and oversight under a coordinated strategy that was upended when Trump succeeded US President Barack Obama.

Mexican immigration authorities said they had allowed some 1,028 migrants through the official border crossing in Ciudad Hidalgo near the bridge spanning the Suchiate River over the past three days. "Change the immigration laws NOW!"

After being temporarily halted by Mexican police in riot gear as they tried to cross the Guatemalan border in Mexico, the group reorganized and vowed to march to the United States border.

"We fully support the efforts of Guatemala, Honduras and Mexico, as they seek to address this critical situation and ensure a safer and more secure region".

The migrant caravan, which started out more than a week ago with less than 200 participants, has drawn additional people along the way. Honduras receives more than $74 million in American aid per year, according to the USAID, as does El Salvador.
