BORDER CHAOS: Second 'Migrant Caravan' Makes its Way Towards US Border
A second migrant caravan encompassing thousands of Central American workers slowly made its way towards the United States’ southern border with Mexico this week; setting the stage for a high-stakes showdown with the Trump administration and immigration officials.
“The caravan formed a day after Vice President Mike Pence met with the presidents of Honduras, Guatemala and El Salvador in Washington, where he offered economic development assistance in exchange for tighter controls on gang violence and migration. Pence also called on the Central American leaders to warn their citizens against trying to cross the U.S. border,” writes the Daily Caller.
“Tell your people — don’t put your families at risk by taking the dangerous journey north to attempt to enter the United States illegally,” said the Vice President during the meeting.
The caravan marks the second gathering of Central American migrants heading towards the United States this year.
A similar group attempted to enter the US last April but were rejected by immigration authorities at checkpoints near Tijuana, Mexico.

CARAVAN CHAOS: Migrant Caravan Swells to 7,000, Trump to CUT AID
The “migrant caravan” of undocumented workers from Central America swelled to 7,000 people over the weekend; crossing into Mexico as they slowly made their way towards the United States’ southern border.
According to the Daily Mail, Mexican authorities have been ineffective in cracking down on the caravan as they marched north, with President Trump vowing to cut-off aid to several nations should the migrants reach the United States.
“Guatemala, Honduras and El Salvador were not able to do the job of stopping people from leaving their country and coming illegally to the U.S. We will now begin cutting off, or substantially reducing, the massive foreign aid routinely given to them,” tweeted the President.

“Every time you see a Caravan, or people illegally coming, or attempting to come, into our Country illegally, think of and blame the Democrats for not giving us the votes to change our pathetic Immigration Laws,” wrote the President last week.
