CARAVAN CHAOS: The President May ‘CALL UP MILITARY’ to 'Close' US-Mexico Border

posted by Hannity Staff - 10.18.18

President Trump doubled-down on his demands that Central American nations block the growing “migrant caravan” before it reaches the United States’ southern border Thursday; saying he may “call up the military” to stem the escalating crisis.

The Commander-in-Chief issued his direct warning to El Salvador, Honduras, Guatemala, and Mexico on social media as the growing “caravan” passed through Guatemala and headed towards the US.

“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!” posted the President.

The “caravan” is now estimated at several thousand people and will likely reach the United States-Mexico border crossing in Tijuana within days.

CARAVAN CRISIS: Trump Threatens to Cut Honduras Aid Over ‘Growing’ Migrant Caravan

posted by Hannity Staff - 10.16.18

President Donald Trump warned Honduras Tuesday that his administration is prepared to cut aid to the Central American country should they fail to crack down on a second migrant caravan making its way towards the United States’ southern border.

“The United States has strongly informed the President of Honduras that if the large Caravan of people heading to the U.S. is not stopped and brought back to Honduras, no more money or aid will be given to Honduras, effective immediately!” tweeted the President.

The second caravan this year reached 3,000 migrants and continued to grow as more workers joined fellow asylum seekers along the Honduras-Guatemala border.

“The impoverished nations of Central America, from which thousands of migrants have fled in recent years, are under mounting pressure from Trump’s administration to do more to curb mass migration,” reports Reuters.

CARAVAN CRISIS: ‘Migrant Caravan’ Continues to Grow, Heads Towards USA

posted by Hannity Staff - 10.18.18

The “migrant caravan” slowly making its way towards the United States’ southern border continued to grow Thursday morning; defying President Trump’s repeated warnings as they trekked through Guatemala.

The “steadily growing caravan” is estimated at several thousand people and hope to reach Mexico within days.

“We’ve lived in neighborhoods where our children have seen disaster after disaster,” said one woman. “We have seen dead bodies thrown in front of us. So that’s my goal, in truth, to reach a country where life can change for my children.”

“Whatever money I have, I need it to buy drinks for my son, fruit,” added another.

The President has repeatedly warned Honduras and Guatemala to prevent the ‘caravan’ from reaching the United States; threatening to cut aid to the Central American nations should they fail to stem the flow of undocumented workers into their countries.

“Hard to believe that with thousands of people from South of the Border, walking unimpeded toward our country in the form of large Caravans, that the Democrats won’t approve legislation that will allow laws for the protection of our country,” tweeted the President this week.
