Mexico says US troops on border won't be armed

Caravan in Trump's Crosshairs Stalls Far From Border

"Five migrants who were part of the caravan arrived here this week, but they're already gone", he said. If she had known it would go only halfway across Mexico, she said, she would have tried to work in Tapachula and save money for the journey. "Really bad. You look at Kate Steinle you look at so many bad people", he said, referring to a case in which an undocumented man was accused of shooting and killing a woman in San Francisco in 2015.

"Honestly, I want to be Mexican", Zepeda said. "For the everyday Mexican this represents an aggression and a position of weakness for the government".

Organizers say that migrants can now take buses on their own to Puebla, a city south of the capital, where a workshop on immigration law is planned for Friday.

He was referencing a group of largely central Americans making their way across Mexico, some with the intent of seeking asylum in the United States.

"I will soon be announcing additional Department of Justice initiatives to restore legality to the southern border", Sessions said. Just two weeks ago Congress and President Trump approved an omnibus spending bill that includes $615 million for programs in Central American countries that address the root causes of out-migration and reform justice and security institutions.

He claimed women from Central America are raped at "levels that nobody has ever seen before". Mujica said that "a minimum of 80 percent" of the migrants in the group come from Honduras.

"In many places the same person in California votes many times".

Ohtani slams first Major League Baseball homer
Serving as the designated hitter, Ohtani finished the game 3-for-4 in what had to be a dream come true debut at Angel Stadium. Trout, Justin Upton and Luis Valbuena also homered for the Angels, who broke a 12-game losing streak to the Indians.

"Let me tell you, a lot of people, they sell everything they've got in their country, to come to the States", said Villarreal.

The hundreds of people gathered here still face daunting prospects. Nobody knows where he derived this conclusion from but, apparently, it was an attempt to advocate strengthening US immigration laws. "There's so much trade with the United States, but the wages for workers remain virtually unchanged in the last 30 years".

The Republican president vowed to send the USA military to secure the border and threatened to axe the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) if Mexico did not stop the caravan.

The woman and the boy were broken-hearted, separated from their families, he said.

"You take the risk of staying in your own country, where they are going to kill you, or you take the risk of taking this path, which is risky", Bonilla said. "We will act only in the best interest of Mexican".

So, during the afternoon hours, the U.S. president threatened his Latin American neighbor with ending the negotiations on the North American Free Trade Agreement.

Even before Trump got involved, this had become the biggest caravan - an annual journey to highlight the plight of migrants - that this group of organizers had seen. He has also threatened to reduce USA aid to Honduras, the home country of numerous marchers.
