A massive caravan of migrants is currently headed for the border of the United States. Now, President Trump is issuing a massive warning to all those wishing to illegally enter the country.
"The United States has strongly informed the President of Honduras that if the large Caravan of people heading to the U.S. is not stopped and brought back to Honduras, no more money or aid will be given to Honduras, effective immediately," Trump tweeted Tuesday.
Some estimates have been taken of the large caravan. Some say anywhere between 1,600 and 2,000 people could be heading for the southern border. Patrols in the area are on high alert.
Some of the migrants seem to be joining the caravan under false pretenses. A widespread rumor circulated that they will be given asylum in America and that Mexico would allow them to pass through the country. The caravan originally started near Honduras.
"Before heading further north on Tuesday, dozens attended Mass at a local Roman Catholic basilica to receive a blessing for their journey, according to The Associated Press. On Tuesday, they were heading north towards the city of Chiquimula. Guatemala's Red Cross said on Tuesday that it had provided care to nearly 400 people associated with the caravan. A Guatemalan priest estimated that more than 2,000 migrants had been fed at three shelters run by the Roman Catholic Church," reported NBC News.
Those traveling to America have said they are seeking safety and opportunities. The Central American refugees are said to be fleeing from violence and poverty in their home countries.
