President Trump tweets that the U.S. military will "CLOSE OUR SOUTHERN BORDER" if officials don't stop the migrant caravan coming from Honduras. Reports says the procession has now grown to about 4,000 people.
“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.,” Trump tweeted Thursday morning.
He added: “In addition to stopping all payments to these countries, which seem to have almost no control over their population, 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 caravan which originated in Honduras, is closing in on the Mexico-Guatemala border. According to NBC News, Mexican officials have sent 500 additional federal police officers ahead of the caravan’s arrival.
Should President Trump send the military to the Southern border?
