Trump again suggests sending troops to U.S. southern border

Mexico sends federal forces to its southern border as migrant caravan heads north

Mexico's ambassador to Guatemala says his country has chose to enforce a policy of "metered entry" since thousands of migrants are clamoring to cross.

USA discussions with the Mexican government have involved both the administration of outgoing president Enrique Peña Nieto and representatives of incoming president Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador, who won election in July and will take office December 1.

Their emigrants make up the bulk of people now caught trying to enter the United States illegally every year.

The US president has made it clear to Mexico that he is monitoring its response.

As the sun rose, a military helicopter could be seen overhead, foreshadowing the difficulties that migrants will have as they try to reach the U.S.

On the Mexican side, the foreign ministry said its government was in constant communication with members of the caravan explaining the migrants' options.

Some 3,000 Central American migrants prepared to cross into Mexico from Guatemala on Friday with hopes of eventually arriving to the United States.

The "March of the Migrant" began on Saturday in Honduras with just over 1,000 Hondurans en route to the United States of America. The migrants intent to claim refugee status but some have raised doubts over who these people really are and whether they are fleeing violence. The nearest border is about 110 miles (177 km) away.

Some of the migrants traveling in a mass caravan towards the U.S. -Mexico border organized a rope brigade to ford its muddy waters.

"Let's get these people out of there, there's something wrong, they're cuckoo", he said.

The migrant caravan has angered U.S. President Donald Trump.

He also threatened to send in the USA military to "CLOSE OUR SOUTHERN BORDER!" and keep out "MANY CRIMINALS" among the migrants.

The caravan successfully used the same strategy on Monday to cross from Honduras to Guatemala at the border town of Agua Caliente, despite efforts by some 100 police to stop them.

He was referring to the United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement, which is awaiting ratification.

He has urged the Republicans to make immigration a central issue of important Congressional elections which take place in the U.S. next month.

"We have to secure that border once and for all", McCaul told Fox News.

The 1878 Posse Comitatus Act bars Trump from using the military as a police force, and while Trump could ask Congress for a waiver, that is unlikely because Senate Democrats, who oppose his border security agenda, can block passage of most legislation.

Edwin Santos of San Pedro Sula was one of the first to race past helpless Guatemalan police, clutching the hands of his father and wife. There are no official estimates of the size of the group.

"They seem to be responding to the statements of President Trump and our indications that our relationship is in trouble if they don't behave like good neighbors". Mexico's foreign ministry did stipulate, however, that individuals with proper documents or those seeking asylum would be granted entry into the country. Guatemalan troops are also said to be putting up resistance. "He's making a political calculation".
