Mexico dispatched two Boeing 757’s full of federal police officers to intercept the migrant Karavan that’s heading their way. The standoff could happen at the Mexican border with Guatemala. This could get ugly. President Trump has threatened to pull aid (see below) from the countries allowing this caravan to travel through. He also has threatened to call our military to close our southern border with Mexico:
….In addition to stopping all payments to these countries, which seem to have almost no control over their population, I must, in the strongest of terms, ask Mexico to stop this onslaught – and if unable to do so I will call up the U.S. Military and CLOSE OUR SOUTHERN BORDER!..

Honduran government officials are begging the people in the caravan to stop and come home. So far, the caravan has only gotten bigger…
The caravan has grown to over 4,000 making the trek to the U.S. border! See our previous report below.
Translation of the tweet reads:
