Caravan of Immigrants Headed for the US Border

A large caravan of Mexican immigrants have set off for the US border. This caravan is composed of over 1000 people and is headed straight for the border with support from Pueblos Sin Fronteras, or People Without Border.

The caravan traveled through Mexico without authorization last week and is headed for the USA in hopes of using a legal system loophole where they are released while they await a trial. Through this loophole they can escape the justice system and illegally stay in the country.

Trump stated that if the Mexican givernement doesn’t do anything to stop these migrants America will impose economic sanctions on Mexico by pulling the free trade agreement. This threat also stands for all illegal migration to the US forcing Mexico to finally take action against the migration problem the US faces.

Trump also wants to cut off DACA (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program) which is an Obama-era piece of legislation that grants protection to any illegal immigrants that have been brought here as children from deportation.
