Trump Orders Troops To Prevent Illegal Migrants From Entering The US
The US has threatened to arrest around 100 Central American migrants if they try to sneak in from the US-Mexico border where they have gathered, prompting President Donald Trump to order troop reinforcements on the frontier.
Two busloads of migrants arrived on Tuesday which sits opposite Calexico, California and paused for a rest stop before continuing on to Tijuana.
They are said to be part of a caravan of more than 1,000 people who set out from Mexico’s southern border on March 25.
Media coverage of the caravan triggered a flurry of furious tweets from Trump, who ordered thousands of National Guard troops to the border and called on Mexico to stop the migrants.
As the issue exploded into a diplomatic row, organizers of the caravan quietly broke it up.
