Mexican ambassador makes a stunning accusation about migrant caravan from Honduras

Donald Trump has threatened to cut aid to Central America and close his country's border with Mexico if a caravan of Honduran migrants marching toward the United States is not turned back.

Trump labeled some of the migrants as "criminals", and said he would resort to "stopping all payments" to Central American countries if Mexico did not "stop this onslaught" on the U.S.

Trump, who has vowed to curtail immigration and build a border wall on the U.S. -Mexico border, threatened this week to halt aid if Central American governments did not act. Earlier this year, some National Guard members were deployed to the border on a limited mission that does not include contact with migrants.

The head of Mexico's federal police says that they have achieved their first objective of preventing a violent breach of the border by some 3,000 migrants trying to enter from Guatemala. Any who are determined to have a legitimate claim will begin the process of being placed in a host country - which may or may not be the USA - and the rest will be sent packing.

"One way or another, we will pass", they changed, clambering atop to USA -donated military jeeps parked at the scene as Guatemalan police looked on.

Thousands of migrants traveling in a caravan briefly moved toward a border crossing on the Mexico-Guatemala frontier before turning around.

However, by the end of Thursday, Trump was also thanking Mexico for its efforts to contain the caravan.

Mexican authorities are particularly wary of migrants attempting to cross the Suchiate River that forms the southwestern border with Guatemala, a popular illegal route into Mexico.

Any who decide to cross illegally and are caught will be detained and deported, the Mexican government has said.

The latest on the caravan of Central American migrants trying to advance toward the United States.

Last year, the USA gave Honduras some £138.92million ($181m) in aid to finance security, anti-drug trafficking and poverty reduction programmes, according to the Washington Office for Latin America.

The caravan, of initially 1,600 people, took off last Friday and has been on the road ever since. Some of them talked among themselves.

It remains unclear how many migrants were able to successfully enter Mexico by force.

Mexico says people arriving at the border will be able to apply for refugee status, and has asked for help from the United Nations refugee agency.

"Whoever wants to work in our country is going to have support, is going to have a work visa", he said.

"The assault on our country at our Southern Border, including the Criminal elements and DRUGS pouring in, is far more important to me, as President, than Trade or the USMCA", Trump said, referring to the United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement.

"It was predictable and also the election process is very close, so he is making a political calculation", he added. And he threatened to send troops to "shut down" the southern US border if Mexico failed to stop what he called an "onslaught".
