MIGRANT CARAVAN: HEADING TO THE U-S BORDER

2018-10-24 18:34
WITH THE U-S MIDTERM ELECTIONS FAST APPROACHING... PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP SAYS HE'S CONSIDERING A MILITARY OPTION BEYOND THE NATIONAL GUARD - TO PROTECT THE BORDER WITH MEXICO. THAT'S WHAT HE TOLD REPORTERS -- AS THOUSANDS OF MIGRANTS CONTINUE TO HEAD NORTH THROUGH MEXICO TOWARDS THE U-S BORDER. MISTER TRUMP HAS SAID HE THINKS THE U-S HAS THE "DUMBEST IMMIGRATION LAWS ANYWHERE IN THE WORLD." MEANWHILE -- THE UNITED NATIONS SAYS AS MANY AS SEVEN-THOUSAND PEOPLE MAKE UP THAT MIGRANT CARAVAN. BUT THE MEXICAN GOVERNMENT SAYS THAT NUMBER HAS NOW DROPPED DOWN TO ABOUT 45-HUNDRED. IT STARTED IN HONDURAS -- PASSED THROUGH GUATEMALA -- AND IS NOW IN THE SOUTHERN MEXICAN TOWN OF HUIXTLA (PRONO: "WEEKS-LAH.") IT WILL LIKELY BE WEEKS-- IF NOT MONTHS-- BEFORE THE MIGRANTS EVEN REACH THE U-S BORDER.
