Migrant Caravan Tears Down Border Fence, Storms Mexico

Honduran migrants board trucks sending them back to Honduras after they crossed the border into Guatemala illegally in their bid to reach the U.S. in Agua Caliente Guatemala

US President Donald Trump threatened Thursday to send the military to the Mexican border and to imperil a trade deal in an intensification of his anti-immigrant rhetoric ahead of congressional elections. He also appeared to threaten a revamped trade deal with Mexico and Canada.

Trump ran for president in 2016 on promises to toughen US immigration policies and build a wall along the USA border with Mexico.

Dozens of Arizona National Guard members were among those deployed to the border.

Launched Saturday from Honduras, the caravan reportedly has grown to more than 4,000 people, including whole families and - in some cases - children traveling without their parents.

Mexico's interior ministry says in a Thursday statement that the government will ask the Office of the High Commissioner for Refugees to support Mexican agencies attending to the migrants.

President Trump's watching his worst nightmare unfold - more than 1,500 immigrants marching from Honduras to the USA, and he's vowing our troops will stop them. if Mexico can't get the job done.

Trump has long touted a need for increased border security, warning criminals and drugs were regularly pouring across the southern border.

Mexico's ambassador to Washington, Geronimo Gutierrez, told Fox News that seven migrants had already made requests to receive refugee status in Mexico.

At a news conference with Videgaray, Pompeo called illegal migration a "crisis" and emphasized "the importance of stopping this flow before it reaches the US border", while also acknowledging Mexico's right to handle the crisis in a sovereign fashion.

Mr Trump returned to the issue on Thursday adding: "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".

The latest on the caravan of Central American migrants trying to advance toward the United States.

While some troops are helping with surveillance, majority are working to maintain Border Patrol vehicles or performing administrative tasks to free up Border Patrol agents to perform law enforcement work, a defense official said Thursday.

Central American migrants in a mass caravan have clashed with Mexican riot police guarding a border post on the country's southern frontier.

When confronted by reporters en route to the border, many migrants have said they are hoping to reach the U.S.to find work.

"We are going to the United States!" he shouted.

"It was predictable, and it's also very close to the election".

Meanwhile, the rafts that normally ferry throngs of people across the river were carrying mostly merchandise and the raft operators said they had been warned by Mexican authorities not to carry people.
