Mexico seeks assistance from United Nations for migrant caravan

Trump threatens to send troops to border to stop migrant caravan

"It's a challenge that Mexico is facing, and that's how I expressed it to Secretary Pompeo", Videgaray told a news conference alongside his USA counterpart. Those caught entering the country in what Mexican officials called an "irregular manner", however, will supposedly be detained and deported.

Mexican authorities, in a bid to soothe Mr Trump's fury and to deter the migrants, without appearing to violate worldwide law, have asked the United Nations to set up a migrant processing centre near its southern border.

Mexico has now requested that the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees establish shelters along the border with Central America, a move both confirmed and welcomed by U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo.

The caravan arrived at the border in southern Mexico on Thursday but turned around Friday, the Associated Press reported.

Mexico did not immediately respond to Trump's latest tweets about immigration.

The threat followed another one earlier this week to cut off aid to Central American countries if the migrants weren't stopped.

Leopold also pushes back on President Trump targeting caravans and says the United States needs to get to the root of the problem to make a sustainable impact on illegal immigration.

CNN's Bill Weir was on a bridge that links Mexico and Guatemala Friday, as the caravan of migrants pushed through the border.

Cristian, who is among the informal leaders of the caravan, estimated about 30 percent of the migrants want to apply for refugee status in Mexico.

Under this plan, if a migrant evaded the new system and traveled through Mexico into the United States, Mexico's government would in future allow the person to be returned to Mexico, Fox News said, citing an unnamed official.

The Mexican visit is important for future relations because it comes just ahead of the inauguration in December of President-elect Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador. "At the time more than 60,000 UACs-many with criminal histories-had stormed into the U.S.in a matter of months". Mexican Federal Police released a video of officers arriving in the border state of Chiapas, some toting riot gear.

Many said they were making the journey for economic reasons. He was referring to the United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement, which is awaiting ratification.

Trump has long touted a need for increased border security, warning criminals and drugs were regularly pouring across the southern border.

Tension was palpable in Ciudad Hidalgo, a tiny tropical village in Mexico surrounded by rain forest and banana plantations that borders Tecun Uman in Guatemala, with the two towns separated by a muddy river.

Marcelo Ebrard, Lopez Obrador's pick to become foreign relations secretary after he takes office, said Trump's tweets needed to be understood in the context of the upcoming USA midterm elections.
