Migrant caravan must walk as Mexico ignores the demand for buses

Migrant caravan must walk as Mexico ignores the demand for buses

A first caravan, which has dwindled and now numbers some 4,000 people, according to an aid group called Pueblos sin Fronteras, arrived Tuesday in the town of Juchitan, in Oaxaca, while a smaller group of 2,000 people managed to cross the Suchiate River separating Mexico from Guatemala the day before.

On Tuesday, Gutierrez explained there have been multiple instances where migrants have been "very violent", while rebelling against border authorities.

The first caravan includes gang members and people with "significant criminal histories", U.S. Homeland Security Department spokesman Tyler Houlton said earlier in October.

Six military bases in San Diego County will be used as logistics hubs for supplies and troops to help with securing the Southwest border following President Trump's announcement Wednesday that he would deploy as many as 15,000 military personnel in response to caravans of Central American migrants making their way northward. "We don't do stunts in this department", he said.

Thousands of Central American migrants resumed their slow trek through southern Mexico on Thursday, as immigration agents and police nibbled at the edges of the two caravans now in the country. Officials said they had no plans to deploy as many as 15,000 troops.

That total alone is roughly equal to the number of USA troops remaining in Iraq and Syria.

The Frenchman said: "I have dedicated my whole life to one club - it would be hard and not well accepted". Real Madrid are now seeking a new boss and Wenger is one of most fancied names, according to bookmakers.


U.S. Defense Secretary Jim Mattis has denied that the deployment of more than 5,200 active duty troops to the southern U.S. border is a political stunt to help Republicans in the midterm elections.

US President Donald Trump is bolstering the border. "And so when the president and supporters of his or people around him attack George Soros and say Soros is funding this caravan, they are trafficking in a well-known and historic anti-Semitic trope". A contingent of 2,092 National Guard members are already stationed at the border.

He also claimed that what he terms "so-called Birthright Citizenship" is "not covered by the 14th Amendment".

"If he can do DACA, we can do this by executive order", Trump said, using the acronym for the Obama-era Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program. "I didn't want to go, but I'm unemployed and I have to get money to buy food for my son", Santos said.

Additionally, dozens of migrants have admitted to various news agencies that they're attempting to reenter the United States after having been previously deported, which is a felony crime, such as one who said that he was convicted of attempted murder and deported.

In fact, House Speaker Paul Ryan and scholars widely pan the idea that Trump could unilaterally change the rules on who is a citizen.
