Trump Warns Caravan of Immigrants 'Had Better Be Stopped' Before Reaching U.S. 'Weak Laws' Border

President Donald Trump has warned that the caravan of people traveling from Honduras toward the U.S. "had better be stopped" before it reaches America's "weak laws border."

Trump's Tuesday morning tweet came following a series of messages about the roughly 1,200 people who are taking part in the caravan. The caravan is a humanitarian effort during the Holy Week to provide physical and financial help to those seeking asylum.

But the president has made it clear he is not happy with the idea that a number of people are attempting to reach the U.S. and plan to seek asylum there.

"The big Caravan of People from Honduras, now coming across Mexico and heading to our "Weak Laws" Border, had better be stopped before it gets there," Trump said in a Tuesday morning tweet.

"Cash cow NAFTA is in play, as is foreign aid to Honduras and the countries that allow this to happen. Congress MUST ACT NOW! " he added, in what appeared to be a follow-up to a series of tweets on the topic over the weekend.

Among the president's complaints about the caravan over the weekend was that Mexico was not doing enough to prevent people from attempting to enter the U.S. A number of people in the caravan said they would be attempting to claim asylum in the U.S. or Mexico.

In a statement to CNN, Mexico's foreign ministry said it had repatriated around 400 people who had entered Mexico unlawfully, and stressed that it was not responsible for other countries' immigration decisions.

"Under no circumstance does the government of Mexico promote illegal migration," the statement added.

Many of the current caravan, which has become something of an annual tradition and also protects refugees from gangs en route, are fleeing from Honduras following the December election of President Orlando Hernández.
