Mexico deploys hundreds of riot police as migrants near

Trump threatens to send army to US-Mexico border in migrant row

At a Thursday evening Montana rally, Trump said he would be willing to send the military to the U.S. -Mexico border "because of the illegal immigration onslaught brought by the Democrats" and referred to the 2018 midterm elections as "an election of the caravan", referring to the thousands of migrants headed to the United States from Honduras. "That would really hurt legal transit between the two countries and manufacturing and trade, which would affect American workers", Selee said.

In Guatemala City, where migrant shelters filled with people, waves of people departed at daybreak on roads leading to Mexico.

Mr Trump has previously threatened to cut Honduran aid.

In part, the response is meant to both dissuade the migrants from even attempting to enter Mexico and potentially to show the Trump administration that Mexico is willing to, as the government put it, "maintain order".

"It's a situation that is nearly impossible to resolve at this time for Mexico", Salazar told CNN en Español Thursday.

Why does it concern Trump?

An immigration enforcement advocate is encouraged by the efforts being made to stop a caravan of migrants from reaching the United States illegally.

Migrant Luis Navarreto, 32, said he had read about Trump's threats regarding aid to his country but was undeterred.

Trump's comments came as he has been urging fellow Republicans to make immigration a central issue in the closing weeks of their midterm election campaigns and blaming Democrats for his failure to pass immigration legislation in the GOP-controlled Congress.

Where is the caravan now?

Oil extends losses as markets fall, inventories climb
Almost 40 percent of daily crude oil production and more than one-third of natural gas output was lost from offshore U.S. Michael crashed ashore Florida on Wednesday as the third most powerful hurricane ever to strike the U.S. mainland.

Late Tuesday, the Office of the U.N. High Commissioner for Human Rights called on Honduras, Guatemala and Mexico to respect the rights and ensure the safety of the migrants traveling in the caravan.

The caravan has been growing steadily since it left the violent Honduran city of San Pedro Sula on Saturday.

The migrants are fleeing widespread poverty and gang violence in one of the world's most murderous countries, and many blamed Honduran President Juan Orlando Hernandez for what they called unlivable conditions back home.

Vigil said he believes Trump is partly to blame for the recent exodus from Honduras because of USA involvement in the country's contested presidential election past year.

Thousands of people and goods legally cross the US-Mexico border daily.

In April, Trump signed a proclamation to send the National Guard to the border to keep the migrants from entering the United States.

As the mass of humanity strung out from Guatemala City to the border, it was unclear whether those who made it the farthest would wait for their countrymen to arrive before attempting a mass crossing into Mexico.

"Later on, UNHCR could help the Mexican government to find places to settle (migrants) inside or outside Mexico for those granted refugee status, but that hasn't been defined with UNHCR yet", Videgaray told Reuters.

Honduran activists have said they would welcome such a move, as most is channelled to security forces who are accused of repression. Mexico, however, requires a passport at entry.
