Trump says U.S. needs to build border wall fast - USA

Republicans have always performed well in elections when they can convince voters to pivot to fear - whether it's fear of people of color, LGBT people, Muslims or terrorists.

According to U.S. Vice President Mike Pence, Honduran President Juan Hernández said that the caravan was organized by leftist organizations and financed by Venezuela when they met for talks on October 23.

"While political pressure over the caravan mounted north of the border, in Mexico the migrants continued their journey". Here's what you really need to know about the "migrant caravan".

UNHCR is also identifying those who are particularly vulnerable, counseling them on their best options.

The Mexican government has declined to give the migrants food, water, or even access to bathroom facilities, leaving it to private citizens, church groups or sympathetic local officials to provide essential goods, according to Associated Press.

The caravan of more than 7,000 Central American migrants continues its journey in spite of exhaustion, heat, hunger and opposition from Mexican border police.

Staff from the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees arrived earlier this week in the Mexican town of Tapachulas, which is near the Guatemalan border, to help stabilize the migrant caravan's chaotic situation and to register asylum seekers. We have to leave our country because it's very risky.

The Honduran ambassador in Mexico, Alden Rivera, said the main caravan planned to make its way across Chiapas - the southern state where it was Tuesday - to Oaxaca, Veracruz and Tamaulipas, where it would try to cross the U.S. border at McAllen, Texas.

What does this have to do with Democrats?

Pressed further on his point about whether there was any proof that people from the Middle East were in the caravan, Trump responded, "there very well could be".

Last year, the US sent more than $300 million in foreign aid to Honduras, Guatemala and El Salvador.

In addition to the testing tunnel and the East Coast route, the Boring company lists an underground tunnel project in Chicago. While the trial tunnel injects a dose of realism to his vision of a hyperfast underground system, key questions remain.

So that George Soros funding story?

He also has warned that if the migrant caravan from Honduras makes it to the USA border, "We'll call up our military if we have to". "Those who seek to come to America must do so the right and legal way".

Nope. Again, a lie - and one the president is desperate that you believe.

Trump kept up his almost-daily Twitter attacks on the approaching caravan, calling it a national emergency and said he had alerted the USA border patrol and military.

"There will be people who stay in Mexico, there will be people who go to different borders because everyone has their own plan and different support where they have family members".

It should be noted that none of these claims have actually been confirmed.

Writing in capital letters, he appeared to say he wanted the laws changed but misspelled the word - typing that the laws "must be CHANDED".

Thursday morning, Trump tweeted, "I am bringing out the military for this National Emergency".

Official data showed that the Trump administration has sharply slashed aid to the three countries in Central America, projecting some 40-percent plunge in aid in the 2019 financial year compared with that of 2016.

U.S. and Mexican officials are trying to negotiate about how to handle a massive caravan of migrants should it reach the American border, according to a Department of Homeland Security (DHS) official.

UNHCR would like to remind countries along this route that this caravan is likely to include people in real danger. Their prime concern is the election - and that's a mere two weeks away.
