Pres. Trump: Migrant Groups Heading to United States are not 'Little Angels'

Pres. Trump: Migrant Groups Heading to United States are not 'Little Angels'

"You got some bad people in those groups, you got some tough people in those groups".

The agency said camera operators monitoring movement Thursday afternoon along the US-Mexico border in the Yuma area captured images of a large number of people being dropped over the border wall east of the San Luis Port of Entry.

According to Mexican authorities, migrants with valid documents and visas would be allowed in. The Mexican government has pledged to deport those without papers, though it began letting a trickle of immigrants cross the border from Guatemala after Friday's bridge standoff. About 50 managed to push their way through before officers unleashed pepper spray and the rest retreated.

He did not seem concerned about Trump's threat to close the U.S. -Mexico border, saying the threat should be viewed in light of the hotly contested midterm elections in the United States, in which Trump has made border security a major campaign issue.

A caravan of 3,000 migrants is moving north through Central America and toward the us southern border - on a collision course with the midterm elections, as yet another factor that could sway voters.

Changes to detention rules saw thousands of migrant children detained and separated from their parents at the US-Mexico border earlier this year, sparking national and global condemnation.

Pompeo said he had a "good conversation" with Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto and that the two countries are jointly focused on the caravan issue, but "the Mexican government is making all the decisions on how to address this".

Several migrants at the Guatemala-Mexico border spoke of entire neighbourhoods leaving their homes to join the trek after news circulated on social media of a call for a new "caravan" to Mexico six months after the previous one.

Police and immigration agents began letting small groups of 10, 20 or 30 people through the gates if they wanted to apply for refugee status.

Contrary to the federal government, the government of Chiapas affirmed earlier this week that they would not stop the caravan.

Migrants have been known to cross the river on rafts for years - sometimes encountering authorities along the way, sometimes meeting little resistance as they slipped into Mexico and continued their journey north.

Now they are stuck on a bridge over a river that marks the border.

Providing his thoughts on what lies beyond the Earth's atmosphere, Hawking argues that there is more out there than what we know. This argument will do little to persuade theistic believers, but that was never Hawking's intent.


As dusk neared, police were relieved by fresh officers and reformed ranks.

A Honduran migrant, part of a caravan trying to reach the US, cries after others stormed a border checkpoint in Guatemala, in Ciudad Hidalgo, Mexico, Oct. 19, 2018.

"I also asked for authorisation to hire ground transportation for anyone who wants to return, and an air bridge for special cases of women, children, the elderly and the sick", Mr Hernandez tweeted.

Hernández and Morales were expected to meet in Guatemala early Saturday to discuss the situation.

President Donald Trump at a Make America Great Again rally in Mesa, Arizona, on October 19, 2018.

During a press briefing in Arizona on Friday, the President reminded reporters the groups are not "little angels" but rather "hardened criminals".

Hundreds of migrants travelling across Central America in a mass caravan to the USA have tried to breach Mexico's southern border and enter the country.

"We are about law and order, and borders, and jobs".

The fight for social equality means opening up the borders to allow the most exploited and oppressed to travel the planet as they please without fear of deportation or harassment. And what will happen if they do?

Democratic consultant Scott Ferson told the Herald he takes Trump at his word. But as of this moment, I thank Mexico. "These are tough, tough people and I don't want them in our country".

"One way or another, we will pass", the migrants chanted as they moved toward the bridge that connects the two countries as a disorganized crowd of women, men and children. We're calling up the military.
