Mexico Sends Federal Police To Intercept Caravan After Trump Threatens Border Closing
After a stern warning from President Donald J. Trump about the consequences of a caravan of Honduran migrants swarming the U.S. border, Mexico has reportedly dispatched two Boeing 727s filled with Federal Police to intercept the mob.
“Five hundred federal police officers in riot gear arrived on Wednesday in Tapachula, Chiapas on the border with Guatemala, where some 4,000 migrants are now marching northward,” the report said.
Trump used the power of his Twitter account to issue a stern ultimatum to Mexican authorities on Wednesday.
“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!..” he said.
“The group reached Guatamala City on Wednesday, about 180 miles from the Mexican border, where Mexican officials greeted leaders of the march,” the report said. “Mexico’s Foreign Ministry said that at the meeting, ‘reliable and updated information was provided on the procedures required by the Government of Mexico to allow regular entry of migrants to Mexico and the process to be followed for those who wish to request recognition of refugee status.'”
Wednesday, Big League Politics reported on a video shared by Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-Fla.) which showed members of the migrant caravan being paid along their journey.
Republican Rep. Matt Gaetz shared footage Wednesday showing women and children being paid cash to join the migrant caravan that is hurdling toward the U.S. Southern border.
Gaetz suspected that George Soros cash was being used, based on very clear-cut evidence of George Soros involvement in recent political matters including the Brett Kavanaugh confirmation process.
