“NATIONAL EMERGENCY” President Trump Announces He Will Begin Cutting Off Central American Aid as Migrant Caravan Marches to U.S.

President Trump declared a national emergency Monday morning and announced that he will begin cutting off aid to Honduras, El Salvador and Guatemala as the migrant caravan marches through Mexico up to the U.S. border.

As previously reported, the illegal migrant caravan was marching through Chiapas in southern Mexico on Sunday, their numbers ballooned to over 7,000 overnight from just a few thousand as it became apparent the caravan would not be stopped by Mexico.

Thousands of military-aged, virile male Hondurans breached the Guatemala border gate over the weekend and stormed the Mexican border bridge; Mexican authorities ultimately let the caravan through.

A second caravan of 2,000 migrants formed on Sunday and started marching to Guatemala with a plan to reach the U.S. as their final destination.

Both caravans are expected to grow in size as new migrants latch on with hopes to reach the U.S. border so they can leech off the U.S. welfare system.

The president previously issued a stern warning to the Central American nations to stop the caravan or he will cut off U.S. aid–on Monday, Trump followed through.

TRUMP: Sadly, it looks like Mexico’s Police and Military are unable to stop the Caravan heading to the Southern Border of the United States. Criminals and unknown Middle Easterners are mixed in. I have alerted Border Patrol and Military that this is a National Emergy. Must change laws!

TRUMP: Every time you see a Caravan, or people illegally coming, or attempting to come, into our Country illegally, think of and blame the Democrats for not giving us the votes to change our pathetic Immigration Laws! Remember the Midterms! So unfair to those who come in legally.

TRUMP: Guatemala, Honduras and El Salvador were not able to do the job of stopping people from leaving their country and coming illegally to the U.S. We will now begin cutting off, or substantially reducing, the massive foreign aid routinely given to them.
