Trump says he's reducing Central American aid over migrants

Trump says he's reducing Central American aid over migrants

Earlier Monday, US President Donald Trump said the United States would begin cutting aid to Honduras, Guatemala and El Salvador because they had failed to stop the movement of migrants.

Local news reports said once the migrants broke into Mexico, authorities there did not try to stop them. Those questions have only grown as media outlets across the globe broadcast images showing Mexican law enforcement officers powerless to prevent the migrant's march through the country's cities and highways en route to the U.S.

U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo met with Mexican officials on Friday, and the president at times last week praised Mexican efforts to keep migrants from advancing past Guatemala.

He vowed to reach the US border, still almost 2,000 road miles away at its closest point.

Guatemala received $176,928,403 from the U.S.in 2016.

He adds: "I have alerted Border Patrol and Military that this is a National Emergy".

After taking office, Trump imposed a travel ban on people from several Muslim-majority nations, saying it was necessary to stop terrorists from entering the country. Others who had a case for asylum would be allowed to make it.

As many as 7,000 migrants, according to one local estimate, have now joined the caravan that started on October 13 in Honduras, many wearing flip flops and carrying their children on a journey that will be at least 1,500 miles long, depending on which part of the US border they reach. In 2017, Honduras was ranked the most risky travel destination in the world. The number of people applying for asylum in Mexico has soared by more than 150 percent since Trump was elected president. Many migrants said they were fleeing a toxic mix of violence, poverty and corruption in Central America. Must change laws!Caravan of migrants grows as it heads to U.S.

Those proposals have not gotten traction among congressional Democrats, who view those changes as anti-immigrant.

They defied threats by Mr Trump to close the US-Mexico border if they went any further.

"At least four journalists travelling with the caravan have said they've seen nobody from the Middle East or heard of anybody from the Middle East", wrote Dale. It remains unclear how numerous caravan's new additions were previously deported from the US for committing violent crimes. Most looking to enter the United States undocumented follow the same route north.

Court records show that fee typically runs from $1,000 to $2,000.

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.

She repeated USA backing for the governments that have tried to stem the flow.
