President Donald Trump Monday, declaring a massive caravan of immigrants heading to the United States border as a national emergency, said the U.S.will cut off or reduce the "massive foreign aid" given to Guatemala, Honduras and El Salvador after they did not stop the migrants' trip north.
"I have alerted Border Patrol and Military" that this is a national emergency, Trump said, while calling the movement a national emergency and declaring that the United States "must change laws!"
"Sadly, it looks like Mexico’s Police and Military are unable to stop the Caravan heading to the Southern Border of the United States," he added. "Criminals and unknown Middle Easterners are mixed in."
The president attacked Guatemala, Honduras, and El Salvador in another tweet, saying they were "not able to do the job of stopping people from leaving their country and coming illegally to the United States. We will now begin cutting off, or substantially reducing, the massive foreign aid routinely given to them."
Trump also blamed Democrats for the caravan, saying they did not allow enough votes to change "our pathetic immigration laws."
"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," the president said. "Remember the Midterms! So unfair to those who come in legally."
