Trump Admits No Evidence of Middle Easterners in Migrant Caravan

Honduran migrants wait to cross the border from Ciudad Tecun Uman Guatemala to Ciudad Hidalgo Mexico

The order comes as thousands of Central American migrants continue their caravan trek through Mexico toward the hoped-for, but still far-distant US border.

"UNHCR would like to remind countries along this route that this caravan is likely to include people in real danger", Edwards said.

The migrant caravan as of Thursday is still in southern Mexico, more than 1,000 miles away from the nearest entry point into the U.S. Its size is estimated to be around 7,000, but many of those now walking are suffering from exhaustion, dehydration and heat stroke.

Observers have described it as "a river of people".

Some in Trump's administration, like Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen, advocate for a diplomatic approach using relationships with Honduras, Mexico and El Salvador and the United Nations to stop the flow of migrants arriving to the U.S.

The caravan set off from Honduran city of San Pedro Sula on October 13 and by October 19. reached Ciudad Hidalgo in Southern Mexico, where the crowd was estimated between 5,000 and 9,200.

Of those 1,500, only about 250 legally remain in the US pending an immigration hearing, according to Pueblos sin Fronteras, a humanitarian aid organization for migrants. Many have said they are coming to the U.S.to seek a better life, which would not qualify them for asylum under USA laws.

Trump earlier this year ordered the deployment of National Guard members to the U.S. -Mexico border to respond to a spike in illegal border crossing.

Trump, who was elected by stoking fears about immigrants, has been eager to make immigration a top issue heading into the midterm elections next month, which will determine which party controls Congress. Trump and senior White House officials have long believed the issue is key to turning out Trump's ardent base of supporters.

"Every time you see a Caravan, or people illegally coming, or attempting to come, into our Country illegally, think of and blame the Democrats for not giving us the votes to change our pathetic Immigration Laws!"

Trump administration officials say they are still evaluating what to do if a migrant caravan arrives at the USA southern border.

One of the migrants held up a sign reading: "Emigrating is not a crime, let's be free without borders".

"Central American countries have no grounds on which to prevent their citizens from leaving". "We will now begin cutting off, or substantially reducing, the massive foreign aid routinely given to them", he wrote.

"They're going to rest here today and tonight", and then continue their journey north, he told AFP.

Hundreds of Mexican federal police officers and soldiers were waiting for them on the other side. "They will be stopped!"

A second group of more than a thousand people has started a similar journey from Guatemala.

Some of the migrants fainted on the crowded border bridge due to the heat and exhaustion after having walked for six days in a row.

More than 1,500 children are present in the column, according to the humanitarian associations. Those troops, ordered by Trump to the border in April, have been barred from interacting with migrants.

"Meanwhile, there are 3,000 children, women and men in the Ciudad Hidalgo International bridge, shared by Mexico and Guatemala, who are looking to enter Mexico with documents provided by the INM", the news outlet said.

The relief of those who made it into Mexico was great.

What happens when they get to the border?

Locals have been helping the migrants.

"Keep it up, brothers!" and gave them food and water.

The migrants have been sleeping wherever they can as they move further north.

Traveling about 45 miles a day, it would take weeks for them to reach the Texas border 1,100 miles away.
