Migrant caravan to rest following report of abducted child

Migrant caravan to rest following report of abducted child

Trump had tweeted Monday that he'd alerted Border Patrol and the military that the caravan was "a National Emergy", but the Pentagon said then that they'd received no new orders to provide troops for border security.

Thousands of Central American migrants vowed Saturday to continue pressing north to the USA border after many of them rejected an offer of refugee status from Mexico.

U.S. President Donald Trump has vowed to prevent a caravan of thousands of immigrants from Honduras, Guatemala and El Salvador from entering the United States.

At a church in Arriaga that opened its grounds to women and children Friday, Ana Griselda Hernandez, 44, of Mapala, Honduras, said she and two friends traveling with children had made a decision to pay for a bus ride from Pijijiapan, because the 4-year-old and 5-year-old would have never covered the 60-mile distance.

Instead they will be putting up emergency fencing at points along the border the migrants are thought to try and cross.

Democrats have accused Trump and Republicans of "fearmongering" on immigration ahead of the election. No combat forces are to be deployed, but because some troops may be armed for self-defense, Pentagon lawyers were working out rules governing the use of force before final deployment decisions are made, the official said.

Mexico's government has said that more than 1,700 people in the convoy have registered for asylum, while others have returned home.

To ignore refuge and continue, in some cases, to come to the United States raises questions of what their real motives are'.

When asked about her discussions about her performance and border security with the President, Nielsen said she talks with him often and "everything is on the table" to address immigration issues.

Finally, in a caravan apparently organised via the social networks, some 150 Salvadorans, including women and children, on Sunday began heading northwards toward the USA looking for better living conditions, just like the other groups.

Caravan spokesman Alexander Martinez said at a press conference that all except about 300 members of the group chose to remain in the town and resume their journey on Monday morning while they organise safety and security committees. The caravan is still about 1,000 miles from the U.S. -Mexico border.

According to organizers, some 5,500 men, women and children are taking part in the migrant caravan, while authorities put the number at 3,630.

Many say they are fleeing gang violence in their home countries; Honduras, for instance, has one of the highest murder rates in the world.

More than 7,000 people, a lot of them Hondurans, had set out shortly after 3am local time (08:00 GMT) from Arriaga, aiming to walk 43km and reach Oaxaca state.

When MacCallum asked if that could include cutting aid to Guatemala, Honduras and El Salvador - the countries numerous migrants originated from - Nielsen reiterated that any and all measures are possible to protect America's borders and citizens.

Mujica accused immigration officials of trying to scare them.

"Our destiny is to get to the border", she said.

They were headed to the town of Pijijiapan, some on trucks but most making the seven hour trek on foot.
