Honduran Caravan Continues to U.S. as Trump Threatens Central American Leaders +

Oct 19, 2018

In immigration news, a migrant caravan of about 4,000 Hondurans is continuing its journey toward the U.S. border, as the migrants flee rampant violence and economic deprivation. Trump has lashed out against the caravan on Twitter, attacking at turns Democrats, his Central American counterparts and the migrants. Trump has also threatened to cut foreign aid to Central American countries, nullify the U.S.-Mexico-Canada trade deal if Mexico doesn’t stop the migrants, and even deploy troops to “close” the border. The United States faced widespread criticism last year for backing the re-election of Honduran President Juan Orlando Hernández despite allegations of widespread election fraud.
