Presidential Twitter tirade on Mexico's migrant caravan: The truth behind the noise

Presidential Twitter tirade on Mexico's migrant caravan: The truth behind the noiseā€¯

"The Caravan is largely broken up thanks to the strong immigration laws of Mexico and their willingness to use them so as not to cause a giant scene at our Border", the president tweeted.

Even before Trump got involved, this had become the biggest caravan that this group of organizers had seen.

On Thursday, Trump tied the alleged rape of women in the caravan to the need to tighten USA immigration laws and build a wall on the border with Mexico.

A BuzzFeed News reporter who has been traveling with the caravan also tweeted that he hasn't seen or heard reports of people being raped.

Santiago: One of the organizers told me he didn't expect to get such attention, but added that [the caravan is] meeting the goal of raising awareness of the conditions many are fleeing in Central America.

Santiago: Organizers have not said.

Organizers had originally made bold claims that they would take the 1,500-strong group of invaders to the U.S.to either demand asylum or outright evade USA law enforcement.

On Tuesday afternoon, she cooked a cauldron full of sliced squash and eggs over an open fire for the caravan's security team, volunteers who keep an eye on things.

"Not sure why the media is acting like this isn't a well-established fact - women and young girls are brutally victimized on the journey north, strikes me as quite freaky that reporters would try to cover up the gross atrocities perpetrated by smugglers and coyotes", White House press secretary Sarah Sanders said in a statement after Trump's comments. Mujica said that "a minimum of 80 percent" of the migrants in the group come from Honduras.

They said that the size of the group of more than 1,000 people had made travel too hard, The Washington Post reported.

"The last numbers we had was more than 600,000 people registered to vote in the United States".

The hundreds of people gathered here still face daunting prospects. While all of the candidates criticized the USA president, the one whose response rings truer is leftist frontrunner Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador.

"If you have a baby on our land, congratulations, that baby is a United States citizen", Trump lamented.

The activists organizing the migrant caravan have announced they will no longer try to reach the border en masse, and individual migrants and families have each begun going their own way. They're not sending you, they're not sending you. "We will act only in the best interest of Mexican". He has warned that Mexico must stop the group or risk being penalized in the negotiations over revising the North American Free Trade Agreement.

Santiago: No. The caravan is one of many annual marches called Via Crucis in Mexico. He has also threatened to reduce US aid to Honduras, the home country of numerous marchers.
