Tired migrant caravan rests in south Mexico, asks for buses

For that reason, Krikorian says, he is skeptical President Trump will keep the migrants from entering the United States. "There is no national security rationale requiring the administration to send active-duty troops or deploy the National Guard".

"It's a risky group of people": Donald Trump says about the migrant caravan headed to the US-Mexican border.

Trump has ordered the deployment of thousands of American troops to the U.S. -Mexico border ahead of a thousands-strong caravan of migrants heading north from Central America, who are now in Mexico.

Military troops will help with planning, engineering, transportation, logistics and medical support to the U.S. Customs and Border Protection, according to the Northern Command statement.

Trump says that the USA was "going to be prepared" and that the migrants are "not coming into our country". They're trying to get up any way they can.

Trump also said the U.S. is building "massive" tent cities to house asylum seekers, including children, while their claims are processed. He said he told the armed troops deployed to the border that they could open fire if migrants throw rocks at them, something Border Patrol agents have done in the past.

President Donald Trump maintained his focus on immigration Wednesday, saying Central American migrants in at least two caravans moving north toward the USA border include "tough fighters" and criticizing the Mexican military for being "unable or unwilling" to deter them.

Italy’s ‘unprecedented’ budget spooks the financial markets
The government's budget plan targets a decrease of the deficit to 2.1 per cent in 2020 and 1.8 per cent in 2021. The EU commission has the task of checking if budget plans stick to EU rules.


In recent days, he has sought to present as a threat to the United States a large group of migrants from Central America who have left poverty and violence at home and are heading slowly through Mexico toward the US border.

The decision to deploy such a large number of troops in the days before the Midterm elections has resulted in accusations from critics of the President that he is using the issue as a political stunt created to fire up a base concerned about immigration.

Trump made the comments Thursday in a speech on immigration. Mr. Trump on Wednesday said he will send up to 15,000 troops to the border, he has threatened to end aid to some Central American countries, and in an interview that Axios aired Tuesday, he said he intends to end birthright citizenship by executive order. President Donald Trump has said the number could reach 15,000.

Trump's response to the caravan has escalated in recent days, along with his rhetoric on immigration, as crucial midterm elections near.

"Hundreds of thousands of illegal immigrant children are made automatic citizens every year because of this insane policy and they are all made instantly eligible for every privilege and benefit of American citizenship", Trump said during a campaign rally in Estero, FL. "They're not coming into our country". "There are billions of people living at the poverty level". Approximately 1,000 miles separate the group from the nearest US border crossing in McAllen, Texas.

The leading caravan is still about 900 miles from the closest entry point into the US - but their intended route remains a mystery. The 53-second spot includes expletives uttered by Bracamontes during his trial as he professed regret at not killing more officials.

It was reminiscent of the infamous "Willie Horton" ad used against Democratic presidential candidate Michael Dukakis in 1988 and condemned as racist.
