  • Central American migrants making their way to the U.S. in a large caravan cling to the trucks of drivers who offered them free rides as they arrive to Tapachula Mexico

A team of AP journalists travelling with the caravan for more than a week has spoken with Hondurans, Guatemalans and Salvadorans, but has not met any Middle Easterners, who Trump suggested were "mixed in" with the Central American migrants. "Remember the Midterms! So unfair to those who come in legally", Trump tweeted Monday morning.

"I wanted to go to the United States with my family, but we've seen that the new government there has made things harder".

"Sadly, it looks like Mexico's Police and Military are unable to stop the Caravan heading to the Southern Border of the United States", Trump tweeted on Monday.

Oglesby says just a fraction of migrants who begin the trek make it to a USA point of entry each year, as many turn back or peel off if they can find work or safety in Mexico instead.

President Donald Trump and his administration have threatened to cut aid if the caravan wasn't stopped, and he said on Monday that he will make good on the threat.

President Trump also expressed disappoint with Mexico's government for failing to block thousands of migrants headed toward the USA border.

Trump has raised alarm over a group of thousands of migrants traveling through Mexico to the USA, saying, "Sadly, it looks like Mexico's Police and Military are unable to stop the Caravan".

WASHINGTON-President Trump on Monday said the USA would cut off or "substantially reduce" foreign aid to El Salvador, Guatemala and Honduras, as a caravan of thousands of Central American migrants-many of whom crossed the Mexican border illegally-continued its journey toward the U.S.

Around 5,000 Central American migrants are attempting to enter the USA, despite Mexican efforts to stop them at the border.

More than 3,400 Hondurans migrants had been returned to their home country over the past 48 hours by Sunday afternoon, according to a migrant assistance body led by the wife of Honduran President Juan Orlando Hernandez, Ana Garcia de Hernandez.

It is yet unknown whether it will affect the caravan's progress by that time.

Caravan members say they are fleeing gang violence at home and looking for jobs in the USA - neither of which has traditionally been enough reason to win asylum on its own.

He says "no one is capable of organizing this many people". White House officials could not immediately provide details. The caravan is unlike previous mass migrations for its unprecedented large numbers and because it largely began spontaneously through word of mouth. And said on Sunday that the United States, Mexico, and Canada should invest in Central America and southern Mexico. "It's better that we rest today", she said.
