Trump Threatens Foreign Aid To Honduras Over Caravans

Posted April 04, 2018

Mr Trump's latest salvo against the migrants' journey comes as he has stepped up his immigration rhetoric in recent days, and his administration has moved to further crack down on people who are in the U.S. illegally. Caravan organizers, local officials, and other said that some of the group took a train to Veracruz, a neighboring state, but it is not if that group has dispersed, the Post reported. "NEED WALL!", Trump tweeted Sunday.

Ultimately, this means that some significant number of the thousand or more illegal aliens now in the caravan will be able to either stay in Mexico or pursue their prior goal of travelling to the USA border.

Mexico's Interior Ministry said in a statement on Monday that "under no circumstances does the government of Mexico promote irregular migration". The caravan, which is now hundreds of miles south of Mexico City, is comprised of approximately 1,300 migrants, and is trying to call attention to the hard situation faced by migrants, according to organizers.

Mexico's foreign minister pushed back Sunday, tweeting, "Every day Mexico and the US work together on migration throughout the region".

They were getting advice from Mexican immigration officials on filing for temporary transit or humanitarian visas in Mexico.

"Trump's Easter rant about the Dreamers, apparently in response to a Fox TV piece that morning, was riddled with factual inaccuracies about the DACA program - but the bigger message is that he's willing to scrap NAFTA unless he gets an immigration deal - including a wall - from Congress", Valliere said.

Navarrete Prida had said earlier that he talked with U.S. Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen on Monday about handling migration, "in accordance with each country's laws". "They can remain in the country and move around while their immigration situation is worked out".

"Mexico has the absolute power not to let these large "Caravans" of people enter their country".

An organizer of the caravan, Alex Mensing, said that it "didn't bring anyone" to the United States, but "accompanied people who have made a decision to flee".

"It is not this government's responsibility to make immigration decisions for the United States or any other country, so it will be up to the appropriate authorities of the United States to decide whether to authorize the entry of the caravan participants to USA territory", the statement said.

He called the caravan "a mass nonviolent collective action" that was organized to "raise the political cost of repression" by immigration officials.

The "Viacrucis Migrante 2018" under the banner, "Migrantes en la Lucha" (Migrants in the struggle), which primarily includes people from Honduras, El Salvador, Nicaragua, and Guatemala, began their trip on Palm Sunday to escape "dangers such as extortion, robbery, murder, sexual assault, torture and deportation". Recent elections in Honduras were marred by irregularities and accusations of fraud, and a subsequent crackdown on protesters has been condemned as heavy-handed.

After the symposium, some migrants might go to Mexico's capital, where it is easier to make an asylum claim. "These people are fleeing their homes and seeking protection for a reason".

Andrade's network of humanitarian shelters, which offer migrants modest places to sleep and rest en route, disavowed the caravan, saying such methods of moving migrants didn't offer better security.

Andrade said members of his organization tried to accompany a caravan of migrants in 2014, but it became "infiltrated" by organized crime.

At some point this spring, the caravan's 2,000-mile (3,200-km) journey that began at Tapachula near the Guatemalan border on March 25 will end at the US border, where some of its members will apply for asylum, while others will attempt to sneak into the United States.

"They can not cross the border", Andrade said.

Trump's tweets once again threatened the ongoing re-negotiation of the NAFTA trade deal and came as campaigns kicked off for Mexico's July 1 presidential elections.

"The Mexican government is under a lot of pressure from the United States to show that it has control over its borders", he said.

Enrique Peña Nieto was responding to reporters in Mexico City who asked, "What about Trump?"
