The caravan, estimated to contain around 4,000 people, is inching Thursday toward the Mexico-Guatemala border, where Mexican officials have sent 500 additional federal police officers ahead of its arrival, NBC News reported, citing US government documents. "We have the right to protect the citizens of this country".

I am watching the Democrat Party led (because they want Open Borders and existing weak laws) assault on our country by Guatemala, Honduras and El Salvador, whose leaders are doing little to stop this large flow of people, INCLUDING MANY CRIMINALS, from entering Mexico to U.S.

The 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family members in September, the highest one-month total on record and an 80 percent increase from July, according to unpublished Department of Homeland Security statistics. "I'm stunned [by] what this country has become".

The presidentmade his threats in a series of tweets early Thursday morning, demanding that the Mexican government turn around the convoy.

President Trump threatened Thursday to send the US military to America's southern border, in order to stop a caravan of more than 2,000 Central American migrants from exercising their legal right to seek asylum in the United States.

Mr Trump had earlier this week threatened to withhold aid to the region as a caravan with several thousand Honduran migrants travelled through Guatemala to Mexico in the hope of crossing into the U.S. to escape violence and poverty.

Heeding Trump's warning, the Mexican government has sent 500 additional federal police to its border with Guatemala in anticipation of the migrant caravan's arrival. He also claimed that the caravan included criminals.

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

The migrants say they organized for the long and hard journey on social media, but Washington suspects the group has been organized as a deliberate provocation. "All Democrats fault for weak laws!"
