President Donald Trump has threatened to call in the military to seal off the US" southern border with Mexico, unless the Mexico takes action to halt a "caravan' of migrants making its way to the USA from Central America.

President Donald Trump threatened today to scrap a crucial trade deal and send soldiers to close the USA southern border in response to a large caravan of Central American immigrants now heading toward the United States.

In another, he suggested that the "onslaught" of immigrants could threaten a recently announced reworked trade deal with Mexico and Canada, writing that immigration is "far more important to me, as President, than Trade".

Trump has made migrant caravans a symbol of all that is wrong with US immigration policies.

The president's warning echoes an earlier tweet on Wednesday, in which he again blasted Democrats for refusing to approve tighter border control and immigration laws.

The situation has sparked tough words from President Donald Trump regarding what he calls an "assault" on the US.

Take, for example, the latest migrant caravan now making its way to the United States. Trump said in one tweet.

As such, the Trump administration's current attempts to put an end to mass migration by caravan (e.g. by sending a clear message that ineligible caravan members will be denied asylum and by refusing to provide promised foreign aid to Honduras and Guatemala) have been correct under worldwide law, as well as under domestic law.
