Trump Floats Making Border Security a Condition for NAFTA Agreement

Central American migrants ride a northern-bound train known as'La Bestia' or The Beast as they arrive to Hermosillo

Mr Trump's threats to exit NAFTA have unnerved USA industry and members of his own Republican party, who say the United States has benefited from the pact.

But Mr. Nielsen said if they are seeking a safe place away from their Central American homes they would stop in Mexico, where they are now traveling, and where authorities are able to provide asylum.

"If members of the "caravan" enter the country illegally, they will be referred for prosecution for illegal entry in accordance with existing law", she added.

In a tweet Monday, he announced he has ordered the Department of Homeland Security to not let the large caravans cross the border.

Sessions said the migrant caravan which reports indicate are mostly Honduran nationals, "have begun to arrive at our southern border with the intent of claiming asylum".

"Trump has railed against the caravan, but migrants have the right to request asylum in the USA and should not be turned away buy border officials unless they fail to pass initial security screenings", the group said.

President Trump is taking action to prevent caravans of Mexican immigrants from entering the country.

The caravan grew at times to more than 1,500 people but largely disbanded in Mexico. Though it is an annual event, this year's march gained prominence thanks to reports from US media outlets describing the ways Mexican authorities were helping the migrants reach the USA border.

In another tweet he said it's crucial to get funding for the border wall.

Along its journey, the caravan dwindled as Mexican immigration authorities detained and deported some migrants who did not have a right to stay in Mexico.

President Donald Trump renewed a threat Monday to make tighter control of the southern border a condition of the sweeping trade deal that his administration is renegotiating with Mexico and Canada, saying, "our Country can not accept what is happening".

President Donald Trump said Monday that his administration may make tougher border security measures a condition for the United States supporting any modernized version of the North American Free Trade Agreement. Earlier this month, 600 migrants left Mexico City en route to the United States to apply for asylum.
