Trump vows to send as many troops 'as necessary' to keep growing migrant caravan out

Today 15:26 GMT

In an interview aboard Air Force One on Monday, President Trump made clear there was no limit to the number of troops he's willing to send to the border to address the growing migrant caravan quickly making its way through hot and humid temperatures in Mexico to the U.S. border.

TRUMP THREATENS TO CUT AID TO GUATEMALA, HONDURAS, EL SALVADOR AS CARAVAN APPROACHES.

Kennedy: The reasons why the caravans keep coming

Today 15:26 GMT

The first step is ending the drug war and legally refocusing the supply chain so people can make consensual transactions without collaterally damaging entire societies that seek constant refuge in ours.

That's all part and parcel of the drug war, squeezing well connected informants to address the supply end of our nations longest and deadliest money-suck, and while it's good for murderous bad guys and corrupt thugs to rot in dingy jail cells, it never addresses the *demand* in this country.

Trial of eight accused of murdering Honduran activist in chaos

Monday 08:04 GMT

The trial of eight men accused over the murder of Honduran indigenous leader Berta Cáceres has been thrown into disarray after judges ousted the victim’s lawyers from proceedings.

In a statement, the family said: “This fraudulent decision by the court leaves us the victims completely defenceless, because, for two years and a half, the Public Prosecutor’s Office has demonstrated its inability and unwillingness to follow correct judicial process… it shows a commitment by the authorities to maintain in total impunity the criminal structure responsible for the systematic attacks against Copinh and the murder of Berta Cáceres.”
