Trump in rape claims over migrant caravan

  • Central American migrants arrive to a sports center during the annual Migrant Stations of the Cross caravan or

"It's not that Central Americans have stopped leaving their countries and trying to come into the USA -it's because Mexico has stopped letting them through".

Even before Trump got involved, this had become the biggest caravan that this group of organizers had seen.

"It is a far more prosperous, wealthy area than the rest of Mexico", he said. Our conversation, conducted via email and lightly edited for flow, is below. He and his family moved to the Rio Grande Valley in South Texas from a border town in Mexico when Villarreal was just a child.

If by "rethink how to help migrants", NBC means "surrender them to Mexican authorities" that story is roughly accurate.

He said: "They're all important for me and he'll be an important player until the end of the season". But in the second half, we came forward more and created danger. "True, nobody else does that".

The letter, signed by Senate President Ernesto Cordero, called on the Mexican government to suspend bilateral cooperation in immigration matters and the fight against organized crime until "Trump behaves with civility and shows respect to Mexico". They're sending people that have lots of problems, and they're bringing those problems with us.

The caravan, which set off from Mexico's southern border on March 25, aims to raise awareness about the plight of migrants, and has been running annually since 2010, the government said. So yes, the caravan is diminishing in numbers and the group will disperse. It's not a Trump effect. At the time, he was speaking about Mexicans and said outright, "they're rapists". Those I've talked to tell me they are fleeing violence, political corruption and poverty.

"But Trump sees gang members, criminals, people trying to take jobs illegally-to be frank, he sees nonwhite people", Isacson continued. "They don't want to mention that". In 2018? Beyond that?

Jorge de Santiago, a maquiladora worker whose house sits right on the border, said of the deployment: "It looks bad, but it doesn't do much".

Mexican immigration officials are working to issue transit visas to hundreds of marchers from the Central American illegal alien caravan to ease their travel through the country, confirming prior reporting from Townhall.

There may be little truth to Trump's claims that Mexico is doing nothing to allay the number of immigrants crossing the southern border. He told reporters on Tuesday, "Until we can have a wall and proper security, we're going to be guarding our border with the military".

The Trump administration is working with four southwestern USA states to deploy the Guard troops, who will not be involved in law enforcement, Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen has said. [Of Trump's move to position National Guard troops at the border], Mexico's Foreign Ministry has said: "In all of its communications on the topic, the Mexican government has stated to the U.S. government that if the announced deployment of the National Guard results in the militarization of the border, it would seriously damage the bilateral relationship".
