Trump Calls on Mexico to Stop Immigrant Caravan From Entering

Trump's Caravan Tweet Draws Attention To Mexico's Migrant Policies

"Mexico has the absolute power not to let these large "Caravans" of people enter their country", Trump said in a Twitter posting on Monday. Trump has declared protections for so-called Dreamer migrants "dead"; accused Democrats of allowing "open borders, drugs and crime"; and warned Mexico to halt the passage of "caravans" of immigrants or risk U.S. abandonment of the North American Free Trade Agreement (Nafta).

The department also said that unlike in previous yearly caravans, "this time Mexican immigration authorities have offered refugee status" to participants who qualify.

Mexican authorities responded to Trump's Sunday threat to rebuke NAFTA by pledging to disband the caravan and allow some transmitters to apply for asylum in Mexico.

The caravan, estimated to contain more than 1,000 migrants, is part of an annual caravan that is meant to raise awareness of the struggles that immigrants making the journey from Mexico to the US face, the Post reported.

Pueblo Sin Fronteras, said, in a statement, "The unprecedented number of people who have joined the current refugee caravan and the high percentage of people fleeing Honduras in the group are the result of multiple political crises in the region provoked in large part by the policies of the US government".

EPA Will Ease Vehicle-Emissions Standards
EPA Administrator Scott Pruitt said in a statement Monday that the agency will work with California to finalize new standards. That target will be replaced with a weaker fuel economy standard that the administration will settle on at a later date.

In January and February, Mexico deported more than 12,000 Central American migrants, according to a report from the country's interior ministry.

"Mexico is doing very little, if not NOTHING, at stopping people from flowing into Mexico through their Southern Border, and then into the US", he tweeted Sunday. The plan boosted patrols near Mexico's long-neglected border with Guatemala and also aimed to improve railway infrastructure to prevent migrants from stealing rides on a northbound freight train known as "The Beast".

So, in other words, the caravan is now being aided by an arm of the Mexican government whose express objective is to help and "protect" migrants within Mexico, including illegal aliens from Central America just like those in the current caravan. Cash cow Nafta is in play, as is foreign aid to Honduras and the countries that allow this to happen.

"We will act with complete sovereignty in enforcing our laws", he said Monday.

"It is not this government's responsibility to make immigration decisions for the United States or any other country, so it will be up to the appropriate authorities of the United States to decide whether to authorize the entry of the caravan participants to US territory", the statement said.

Lue announced he was leaving the club on March 19, saying he experienced chest pains and "other troubling symptoms" this season. CLEVELAND (AP) - LeBron James accepted the game ball and raised it high over his head for everyone to see - the flawless pose.

"Under no circumstances does the government of Mexico promote irregular migration", the statement said.

"These kinds of caravans are utilized by people that are not migrants, who pass themselves off as migrants and try to extort other participants in the caravan", said Alberto Xicoténcatl, director of a migrant shelter in Saltillo, in northern Mexico. The remaining migrants will be subjected to an "administrative migration procedure", the government said, though it was unclear how many marchers would be allowed to continue their journey to the USA border.

Mexico has preferred to keep other issues such as security and immigration out of the NAFTA renegotiations, "unlike Trump. who puts everything on the table", said Brenda Estefan a former security attaché at the Mexican Embassy in Washington.

"They can not cross the border", he said.

Navarrete Prida had said earlier that he talked with US Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen on Monday about handling migration "in accordance with each country's laws".
