President Donald Trump threatened on Thursday that he is more than willing to close the U.S.-Mexico border if the migrant caravan coming from Guatemala ends up making it to the United States southern border.
About 3,000 Hondurans have traveled through Guatemala, and are now heading towards the United States. President Trump has put major pressure on Mexico to stop the migrant caravan before it reaches the U.S..
In response, Mexico dispatched more police officers to the border on Thursday. But Mexican officials say that the Hondurans will have to show proper visas and passports to enter, something that many won't be able to do.
President Trump also made sure to highlight the political issues associated with the migrant caravan and border security. With less than three weeks until the midterm elections, Republicans hope this will help their base fight for more secure borders.
