The illegal migrant caravan crossing through Mexico has swelled to over 7,200 people in recent days. Currently, the arrival trajectory is in around 2 weeks, with election day, November 6th, seeming to be a possibility.
In response, President Donald Trump is threatening to use military force on the border, and has announced he is cutting aid to the Central American countries whose citizens make up the caravan.
It is these threats from Trump that is encouraging Mexico to act, which they have done in a way.
Immigration police commissioner Francisco Echeverria told reporters they planned to channel the people to Tapachula, where they would be issued permits to remain in the country.
But those offers aren’t going anywhere, as the migrants are set on entering the U.S., not staying in Mexico.
The only way to change the trajectory of the caravan at this point is through police force. But as reported by Buzzfeed News, the police in Mexico have continually stood down, writing:
It was an unprecedented day in the annals of Central American migration as a stream of people took over the highway linking Ciudad Hidalgo with Tapachula. They filled one side of the highway, linking arms to form human chains as organizers in the group shouted for people to stay on the right side of the yellow dividing line.
A large contingent of federal police at one point had descended on the highway, but packed up and retreated as the caravan advanced, only to reassemble hours later farther up the highway. More than a dozen buses carrying uniformed men and women parked on the side of the highway, a police helicopter circled low over the marchers, and a police patrol car drove past the caravan. But there was no effort to stop the marchers’ forward progress.
So with Mexican Police standing down, it will likely come down to U.S. authorities having to deal with them in the event they try to illegally cross the border into the U.S.
Hostilities Explode As Armenia, Azerbaijan Fight Over Disputed Nagorno-Karabakh Region
Dozens have been killed.
Intense combat broke out between the military forces of Armenia and Azerbaijan over the weekend, with the two west Asian countries intensifying a conflict over the disputed territory known of Nagorno-Karabakh.
Reports indicate that more than thirty fighters between the two sides were killed over the weekend.
Nagorno-Karabakh’s (also known as Artsakh) pro-Armenian local government claimed that the Armenians had destroyed 20 UAV’s, 3 helicopters, and thirty tanks or fighting vehicles of the Azerbaijani armed forces.

The Armenian ministry of defense has confirmed that more than 200 of its personnel fighting in the conflict have been wounded. It’s possible casualties could explode over the week if Azerbaijan continues its attempt to conquer towns and villages administered by the Artsakh government.

The small territory is inhabited by a majority Armenian population, who wholly support the region’s integration into Armenia. Ethnic warfare over the area first erupted in 1988 as the two nations separated from the collapsing Soviet Union, and has flared up intermittently since then.
The region is largely internationally recognized as part of Azerbaijan, and Azeri attempts to assert sovereignty over the mountainous region have been met with fierce resistance from the local population before. The fighting exploded over the weekend when Azerbaijan attempted to move its military personnel into the area, and it appears that the latest round of fighting has been the most vicious so far.
The warfare escalated when Armenia accused Azerbaijan of deploying artillery and airstrikes against pro-Armenian fighters in the region, with Azerbaijan claiming it only used the weapons in response to Armenian attacks of the same variety.
Armenia is Christian, and Azerbaijan is Muslim. The former has conditional backing from the Russian Federation, while Azerbaijan is staunchly supported by neighboring Turkey. Many Armenians are staunch in their defense of the region as an Armenian territory, citing the legacy of the Ottoman Empire’s genocide of the Armenian population of Anatolia following World War I.
