Mexico Gives Transit Visas to Illegal Alien Caravan Marchers

Mexico Gives Transit Visas to Illegal Alien Caravan Marchers

In a sign of the Pentagon's unpreparedness for Trump's initial border directive, which came Tuesday, just hours before the commander-in-chief announced the size of the troop deployment, military officials said they had no idea how many Guardsmen would go to the border, whether they will be armed, when they will deploy and how long they will be there.

Caravans like this one are common as an attempt to raise awareness, but they exist apart from the regular flow of migrants. Using mid-20th-century solutions for today's problem is a ideal example of Mr. Trump's ill-informed decision-making.

Anderson Cobach Zacarias, a 10-year-old from Guatemala at a church in Puebla, Mexico, that has been converted into a shelter for several hundred migrants from Central America, many of home had hoped to travel to the US border, drawing the ire of President Trump.

"The president was clear that this caravan needed to be stopped before it arrived at our southern border, and his efforts now appear to be successful", Attorney General Jeff Sessions said in a statement released by the Justice Department.

Elmer Zelaya Gomez, 38, from eastern El Salvador, has been sleeping with his wife and three children aged 7, 13 and 14 on the soccer field under blankets as they wait for temporary transit visas from Mexico to continue to the United States border.

Santiago: Organizers have not said.

"I see it as something really sad, because I don't understand how a child this age can make things hard for him", said Hernandez, a 27-year-old who is two months pregnant.

Police shoot, kill man who pointed pipe at them
Jaccbot Hinds told the New York Daily News that the officers never asked the suspect to put his hands up in the air. After the shooting, dozens of Crown Heights residents crowded around police lines, some apparently angry.

Many Hondurans who fled after their country's contested presidential election in November had already amassed in Tapachula and joined the caravan when it set off late last month.

"About 80% of them are from Honduras", he said. "They're rapists. And some, I assume, are good people", he said previously.

The hundreds of people gathered here still face daunting prospects.

"Our job with the caravan ends in Mexico City", the organization's director Irineo Mujica told The Washington Post.

She would like to get into the US, where she has a cousin in Houston.

The woman and the boy were broken-hearted, separated from their families, he said. They're not sending you, they're not sending you. "We thought it would be better to flee". In a barrage of tweets, he threatened to end the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) to punish Mexico for not detaining immigrants, blamed Democrats for weak immigration laws, and boldly exclaimed that DACA, the program to help students and professionals brought to the United States as children, was dead.

Trump at turns blasted Mexico for allowing the mass of migrants to trek across its country and also praised the country's immigration laws as tougher than the U.S. He has also threatened to reduce USA aid to Honduras, the home country of numerous marchers.
