    Trump threatens to call US military to close southern border as 4,000-strong migrant

    Trump threatens to call US military to close southern border as 4,000-strong migrant caravan pushes north

    By Greg Norman
    Published 1 hour ago

    President Trump warned Thursday he will “call up the U.S. Military and CLOSE OUR SOUTHERN BORDER” with Mexico if officials there don’t stop the northward flow of a growing migrant caravan that's swelled in size to about 4,000 people.

    The president’s latest threat against the caravan that originated in Honduras – and which is heading to the U.S. in a bid to escape Honduras’ poverty and violence – comes as Secretary of State Mike Pompeo is heading to Central America to talk with leaders about the issue.

    “I am watching the Democrat Party led (because they want Open Borders and existing weak laws) assault on our country by Guatemala, Honduras and El Salvador, whose leaders are doing little to stop this large flow of people, INCLUDING MANY CRIMINALS, from entering Mexico to U.S.,” Trump tweeted Thursday morning.

    He added: “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!”

    The caravan, estimated to contain around 4,000 people, is inching Thursday toward the Mexico-Guatemala border, where Mexican officials have sent 500 additional federal police officers ahead of its arrival, NBC News reported, citing U.S. government documents.

    Mexico has said anyone with travel documents and the correct visa will be allowed to pass and others can apply for refugee status, but also warned that those who try to cross in an “irregular manner” could be detained and deported, according to the Associated Press.

    The news agency added that none of the migrants it spoke to who are making the journey were carrying passports, signaling a looming showdown with Mexican border officials in the coming days.

    One of the Honduran migrants, Henry Tejeda, told the Associated Press that he left his wife and four children behind to join the caravan. He said his mother was murdered four years ago and his brother was shot.

    "I am carrying the documents to prove I'm not lying," Tejeda said. "I want to seek political asylum [in the United States] and help my family."

    Pompeo – fresh off of traveling to Saudi Arabia and Turkey for meetings over the disappearance of activist Jamal Khashoggi – is now heading to Panama City Thursday and Mexico City tomorrow.

    He will meet with the presidents of both countries to “discuss our ongoing security cooperation efforts to disrupt the illicit movement of cash, weapons, drugs across our shared border as well as the issue of stemming illegal immigration and strengthening accountability for corruption and human rights abuses, and bringing members of transnational criminal organizations to justice,” a senior State Department official said.

    The official also said the migrant caravan will be a “prominent” topic of discussion at those meetings.

    “Certainly it’s an issue that we have viewed as a shared challenge and we continue to work closely with countries in the region to address the underlying economic, security, and governance conditions that have driven illegal immigration to the United States,” the official added.”

    Since 2015, the U.S. government has sent more than $2.6 billion in foreign assistance to the Northern Triangle countries of Guatemala, Honduras and El Salvador. Trump has repeatedly threatened to cut off that aid if the mass migration continues.

    The caravan set off last Friday from San Pedro Sula, Honduras’ second-largest city and a place widely considered to be one of most dangerous in the world by homicide rate. At its start, its size was estimated by the Associated Press to be around 160 people.

    The growing caravan is now banding together as a means of protection against crimes that may occur during the journey northward.

    I never thought it would stop them from coming and have repeatedly said as much. The time for threats is over, time for action.

    Judy's Plan B:

    Tell all these countries, if your citizens don't stop entering our country illegally, then your country will have no aid from or trade with the United States.

    As the threat to end aid has shown, it won't work. There is nothing we can do that would force a government to imprison a whole country of its own people. That's why we must take responsibility for our own country by securing our border and rewriting our asylum laws. Time for Congress to get off their fat duffs and get this done!

    Judy's Plan will work, work fast, and effectively. It's the best option, short and long term, to stop the scourge of illegal immigration at the source in their home countries.

    I hope this includes all of the USAID,World Bank and State Department "aid" that been pouring into Honduras. As long as Honduras and El Salvador are receiving a large percentage of GDP off of remittance "secularization, they will keep pumping people up here to send money home. US aid to these countries comes from a lot of "pots" and it all needs to be stopped. IMO.

    Example:

    Here is another that is specific to Honduras.

    OUR LISTA INITIATIVE HAS ALREADY REACHED 20K PEOPLE IN HONDURAS!

    Financial Education,
    LISTA

    Our LISTA Initiative keeps on advancing in different countries! On this occasion, we are proud to share that LISTA has already trained 20,000 people in Honduras, thus fulfilling the commitment acquired with our partner USAID.

    In Honduras, back in 2016, we started an alliance to work together with the Inter-American Development Bank (IADB) and the government. Both institutions were interested in exploring new ways to disseminate financial education massively, and that’s how the LISTA Honduras model was born. We started the implementation in May 2017, rotating digital tablets to massively bring high-quality financial education to people who have already been banked through the Conditional Cash Transfers program “Bono Vida Mejor,” managed by the Sub-Secretariat of Social Integration (SSIS).

    In partnership with the Honduran government, LISTA has already reached 36 municipalities in 7 different departments of the Honduran territory (Cortés, Atlántida, Colón, Comayagua, Choluteca, La Paz and Santa Bárbara). Now, LISTA will also reach Copán, Lempira, Intibucá, Yoro and El Paraíso. The articulation with government officials has generated the best conditions for the project to develop with excellent results. Officials share that they are delighted with LISTA, since the project does not suppose an overload of work, and they can see high performance in the learning of families, especially regarding training and empowerment of women leaders present in the territories. There are already more than 600 women empowered as women leaders in Honduras, a role that is new in this country and that is inspired by the “mother leaders” of the project in Colombia, who have been key to the success of the program in this country.

    During the pilot in Honduras, 73% of the trained participants were women, and 27% were men. This is the highest male participation rate in the history of LISTA, and this result is significant because it points to a change in sensitivity in the distribution of household tasks and responsibilities, with men who are more involved in financial planning and family budget management.

    Also, beyond financial education, LISTA offers participants a first contact with the digital world and facilitates losing their fear of using electronic devices. Thus, digital inclusion adds up to financial inclusion.

    And now? LISTA does not stop growing and evolving! Our goal is to reach all the beneficiaries of the Bono Vida Mejor with this innovative tool, totaling 300 thousand holders and their families.

    Since Hillary Clinton entered into the MOA with Honduras in 2010. The remittances have increased dramatically.

    Remittances in Honduras increased to 434.90 USD Million in August from 427.60 USD Million in July of 2018. Remittances in Honduras averaged 183.36 USD Million from 1998 until 2018, reaching an all time high of 456.20 USD Million in May of 2018 and a record low of 11.90 USD Million in January of 1998.
