A throng of Central American migrants continues their trek toward the U.S. border in southern Mexico.
With new estimates of 7,000 Central American migrants now making their way north through Mexico, President Donald Trump lobbed another series of threats Monday against the region’s governments for not being able to stop the growing caravan.
Trump wrote that he would follow through on threats to cut off funding for Guatemala, Honduras and El Salvador now that the caravan has cleared Central America and ensconced itself in southern Mexico. The president warned of “Criminals and unknown Middle Easterners” mixed into the migrant caravan group, which originated in Honduras but has swelled in size as people from other nations have jumped in along the way.
