Migrant Caravan: Trump declares 'NATIONAL EMERGENCY' as 'CRIMINALS' heads for US

The President has accused Democrats, without evidence, of pushing for overrun borders to gain voters in the midterm elections.

It's not unusual for the National Guard to help with border security.

'MUST BE CHANDED [sic],' he added, misspelling 'changed, ' and adding: 'but I am bringing out the military for this National Emergency.

In the current situation, active duty troops will not be on armed security missions that could lead to a similar incident. This would include a variety of things such as vehicles, tents and equipment, and perhaps medical support.

This round of troops would be in addition to the 2,000 National Guardsmen stationed at the border under a previous Pentagon arrangement.

During the "Make America Great Again" rally at Toyota center in downtown Houston, the fourth largest city in the United States, Trump told a crowd of almost 180,000 that the caravan of migrants heading towards the United States is "assault on our country" and that "we need a wall built fast".

"We know this won't end in a few days, and will be a long progress of migration", said Mauro Verzeletti, director of the Casa del Migrante, a migrant shelter in Guatemala City. And Trump, at rallies and on Twitter, has tried to paint the Democrats as pro-illegal immigration, even claiming, with no evidence, that Democrats had organized and paid for the caravan, which remains more than 1,000 miles from the us border. Most are Hondurans, seeking to escape the poverty and violence that plagues the region.

The number fluctuates greatly from year to year, however, and border crossings were down from 408,870 in fiscal 2016, the last year of Barack Obama's presidency. Since entering Mexico at its southernmost tip, the group has advanced roughly 95 miles.

"To those in the Caravan, turnaround", he wrote.

Rapoport says Elway is "extremely angry" and all options, including releasing the second-year quarterback, are still on the table. The home's occupant chased the man out of the residence and responding officers searched the area, police said .

Senior administration officials told reporters Tuesday they have seen a steady increase of unaccompanied children and families compared to single adults apprehended illegally crossing the southern border. The DHS data released Tuesday goes back to 2013.

Much depends on the Mexican government and what routes the caravan is allowed to travel, whether its members are detained or held in certain areas and whether the group is provided with buses to speed their journey.

UNHCR, the UN Refugee Agency, has mobilized staff and resources to southern Mexico since Thursday, following the arrival at the Mexico/Guatemala border of thousands of people as part of a "caravan" of refugees and migrants travelling from Honduras.

The trend with people who travel to the U.S. as part of caravans is to not apply for asylum, Judd added. But those members remain under the control of the governors of the states where they're positioned, and their activities are limited to supportive roles, such as providing surveillance.

A Chiapas church group said they cooked for a full day, then drove over an hour from the mountains to reach the caravan, where they handed out coffee, sugary bread and tamales, cornmeal patties stuffed with meat and vegetables.

Federal law prohibits the use of active duty service members for law enforcement inside the US unless specifically authorized by Congress.

Trump tweeted that "Democrat inspired" laws make it hard to stop people at the border.

Trump told a rally crowd in Wisconsin on Wednesday that the military was "all set". Once you reach the US-Mexico border, if you don't force your way through no one will hurt you.
