A caravan of close to 2,000 Honduran immigrants is continuing to make its way through Guatemala to the United States, a day after President Trump warned Central American countries that they may lose American aid if they let illegal immigrants cross the U.S. border.
We have today informed the countries of Honduras, Guatemala and El Salvador that if they allow their citizens, or others, to journey through their borders and up to the United States, with the intention of entering our country illegally, all payments made to them will STOP (END)!

The president also hit Democrats Wednesday morning, calling their inaction on immigration reform a “great midterm issue” for the GOP.
Hard to believe that with thousands of people from South of the Border, walking unimpeded toward our country in the form of large Caravans, that the Democrats won’t approve legislation that will allow laws for the protection of our country. Great Midterm issue for Republicans!
