  • Hondurans Challenge President Trump's Tough Immigration Stance With 'March of the Migrant' Event

President Donald Trump is threatening to cut off all USA aid to Honduras if that government doesn't turn off the "caravan" of immigrants headed toward the United States.

On Tuesday, Trump issued a warning to Honduras, where most of the immigrants in the latest group are from: "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 announced on Twitter.

The group was organized using social media, according to Reuters, which quoted Bartolo Fuentes, the alleged organizer, who said those in the march will request refugee status once they reach Mexico or a pass to allow them to continue north to the usa border.

The group has swollen in size since leaving San Pedro Sula, one of the world's most risky cities, on Friday. "There's no work in Honduras, and you live in fear that they're going to kill you or your children", Barahona said.

The caravan of at least 1,600 crossed Monday into Guatemala, chanting "yes we can" as they defied the Guatemalan governments orders to stop.

It was not clear how Honduras would be able to exercise control over people who had already left the country.

This new massed movement of migrants fleeing Central America mirrors a similar caravan in April that was assembled by a US -based group known as Pueblo Sin Fronteras or "People Without Borders".

Bartolo Fuentes, the organizer, told the news agency that the group plans to march through Guatemala and into Mexico.

"Rows of Guatemalan police in black uniforms, some wearing helmets and shields, initially blocked migrants from reaching a customs booth, Reuters images showed". Then it's on to Mexico and possibly the United States, though if history holds, numerous migrants will break off and remain in Central America.

The march comes days after Vice President Mike Pence met with the presidents of Honduras, Guatemala and El Salvador.

Honduras is one of a dwindling number of countries that still has formal diplomatic ties with Taiwan.
