Migrants hit snags with Mexican immigration

Trump says he will cut off aid to Central American nations for failing to stop migrant caravan

Earlier Monday, the President said he alerted the military -and the border patrol - about the situation.

Mexico's government said in a statement on Tuesday that it had received 1,699 requests for refugee status, including children.

They are being joined by others from across Central America, creating a group estimated to be about 4,000 strong. There are no bathrooms there, and little donated food. The group's organizers and global aid groups, including UNHCR, say more than 7,000 people are still headed north. "So this is an opportunity to improve my family's life", said Elsa Romero, a Guatemalan mother of four in Huixtla.

Pressed again, he said, "there's no proof of anything, but there very well could be". Then they started walking north in the so-called migrant caravan of people who've banded together for security and support. Some local media put the number in the column above 2,000.

Later in the broadcast, we'll go to Phoenix, Arizona, to speak with immigrant rights organizer Jacinta González about a shocking new report detailing how companies like Amazon, Palantir and Microsoft are profiting from and expediting Trump's deportation operations.

John Elway disappointed, concerned with Chad Kelly's actions
Denver Broncos quarterback Chad Kelly (85) speaks to the media following rookie minicamp drills at the UCHealth Training Center. He has since posted a $2,500 bond and was scheduled to have a court appearance on Wednesday morning.

Trump, who made fear about immigrants a major theme of his 2016 election campaign, has been eager to make it a top issue heading into the November 6 midterm elections, which will determine control of Congress.

While the president and his predecessors have requested state governors to deploy the National Guard to the border before, as Trump did in April when a smaller migrant caravan tried to cross into the U.S., he had warned last weekend that he would send in "the military, not the guard".

But in June, U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions overturned an Obama-era policy and made it harder for asylum-seekers to claim gang violence, drug smuggling and domestic violence as credible fears.

Federal law prohibits American servicemembers from performing civilian law enforcement duties on USA soil outside of military installations.

Meanwhile, the U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations, Nikki Haley, posted on Twitter on Tuesday that there was a "need to look at political motives behind the caravan".

But US President Donald Trump, who campaigned on a promise to curb illegal immigration to the US, said he would not let the caravan cross into the US.

Donald Trump says U.S. will build up its nuclear arsenal
Welcome to the high church of arms control in which treaties are sacrosanct no matter the violation. The INF resolved a crisis over Soviet nuclear-tipped ballistic missiles targeting Western capitals.

He added: "I mean, the idea that they would not be in this large throng, that what the president of Honduras told me was organized by leftist groups in Honduras, financed by Venezuela and sent north to challenge our sovereignty and challenge our border".

Neither Haley nor Pence provided evidence.

Honduran authorities say that at least two men have died so far on Mexican roads during the advance of the caravan.

Despite raising Trump's ire, thousands of Central American men, women and children seeking to escape violence, poverty and government corruption in their home countries continued their journey toward the distant US border.

USA officials apprehended 396,579 people between ports of entry on the southwest border between October 2017 and the end of September, CBP reported.

President Trump tweeted Wednesday that the migrant crisis in Europe should serve as a warning. If they violate those rules, they face deportation.
