Spending legislation Congress passed past year allows up to 25% of aid to the countries to be withheld if the secretary of State doesn't certify to Congress that they're making progress reducing illegal immigration. The marchers are presently stopped at Mexico's border with Guatemala, where officials are slowly processing them. Nothing. They did nothing for us. "I have never seen the spirit that we have right now, whether it's Kavanaugh, whether it's tax cuts that we gave, whether it's common sense". That doesn't include thousands of dollars in other fees that cover foot guides, drivers, stash houses and the rest of the illegal journey. "They, like a lot of others, do nothing for our country".
A USA -bound caravan of thousands of mostly Honduran migrants whom President Donald Trump has declared unwelcome, crowded into the Mexican border city of Tapachula on Sunday, setting up impromptu camps in public spaces under a heavy rain.
Mexican authorities had managed to block the migrants on the Mexico-Guatemala border after they burst through a series of barriers on the Guatemalan side on Friday. "Criminals and unknown Middle Easterners are mixed in", Trump tweeted Monday. "And guess what, we're not letting them in this country", Trump said in response to a reporter while answering questions in an impromptu news conference before boarding the Marine One helicopter on the White House lawn to fly to Joint Base Andrews. It's a disgusting thing, and it's a lot bigger than 5,000 people, and we got to stop 'em at the border.
Saying they weren't content to wait for authorities to process and admit them in smaller groups, they overcame Mexican police who had been deployed to try to prevent the mass entry. You're going to find everything. Numerous invaders are attempting to transit these countries and, in the process, are violating their sovereignty, their laws, and their procedures.
More than 7,000 people have joined the migrant caravan headed toward the U.S. border with Mexico, a United Nations spokesman said Monday, citing estimates of the International Organization for Migration.
The International Organization for Migration announced on Monday that large numbers of migrants arrived in Mexico, with many likely to remain for an extended period. By swimming or floating across on makeshift rafts, the migrants were able to reach Tapachula, Mexico, a city approximately 23 miles north of the Guatemalan border, as of Sunday. By this past weekend, the caravan had swelled to an estimated 7,000 people.

During his presidential campaign, he also vowed a complete ban on Muslims entering the country, arguing that all members of the faith group presented a terror risk.
He went on to tweet that illegal immigration in the U.S. is due to Democrats "not giving us the votes to change our pathetic immigration laws!"
US Secretary of State, Mike Pompeo also said that the immigrants will not be allowed to enter the US.
"I have alerted Border Patrol and Military that this is a National Emergy", Trump tweeted.
President Trump has been incensed over the group of around 5,000 migrants, mainly Hondurans, who say they are fleeing violence, poverty, and corruption in their homeland.
