Migrant caravan swells to more than 5,000 as group marches toward U.S.

Today 18:10 GMT

As the caravan of Central American migrants left the Mexico-Guatemala border, walking north in the heat, it became clear that the group had swelled in number.

The group appears to be at least double the size of the caravan that wound through Central America and Mexico this spring, prompting outrage from President Trump ahead of the administration’s policy of family separation. Through Sunday morning, officials in Mexico had done little to stop the group from crossing into the country from Guatemala.

Newt Gingrich: The caravan is an attack on America -- Stop the caravan now

Saturday 15:25 GMT

The caravan of about 4,000 migrants from Central America seeking to enter Mexico and then the United States illegally is attempting to invade and attack the U.S.

This assertion will almost certainly be denounced by the usual sources as being hateful or offensive, but it is long past time we stop letting the left prevent us from using words that clearly communicate reality. The fact is: Thousands of people have openly stated their intention to break American law and invade our country.

Trump threatens to summon military to close U.S.-Mexico border, upend trade deal in response to migrant caravan

Friday 08:05 GMT

President Trump threatened Thursday to summon the military to close the U.S.-Mexico border and upend a trade deal, expressing mounting frustration with a large caravan of migrants from Honduras that has been making its way toward the United States.

“In addition to stopping all payments to these countries, which seem to have almost no control over their population, I must, in the strongest of terms, ask Mexico to stop this onslaught - and if unable to do so I will call up the U.S. Military and CLOSE OUR SOUTHERN BORDER!” Trump said in one tweet. In another, he suggested that the “onslaught” of immigrants could undermine a recently announced reworked trade deal with Mexico and Canada, writing that immigration is “far more important to me, as President, than Trade.”

More irregular border-crossers have arrived so far this year than by this time last year

Friday 15:27 GMT

READ MORE: More than half of Quebec asylum seekers had some kind of ‘legal status’ in U.S. before crossing to Canada. While that is fewer than the 1,881 intercepted in September 2017, it keeps the overall number of irregular arrivals in Canada so far this year, above the number who arrived by this time last year.

If the remaining months of the year see 1,263 people arrive each month — the lowest monthly amount seen so far this year — Canada will end the year with 19,515 irregular border-crossers arriving.

Criminals target women, children as migrant caravan makes its way to Mexico

Saturday 20:00 GMT

As thousands of Central American men, women and children travel en masse to the Mexican border to escape extreme violence in their homelands, many are doing so knowing the lengthy trip holds hidden dangers that could be fatal for their families.

David Leopold, chairman of the Immigration Law Group, says despite reports of migrants marching and singing the Honduran national anthem as they make their way to Mexico, the trek out of Central America isn’t a “fun ride” but one filled with unimaginable abuse directed at women and children. “The trip is awful,” Leopold told Fox. “(Migrants) are susceptible to crime.

UK and EU agree to extend Brexit talks after summit ends with no results

Friday 04:15 GMT

European Union leaders gave themselves several more weeks – perhaps until the end of the year – to clinch a friendly divorce with Britain before their separation, after a Brexit summit Wednesday avoided any friction but also produced no tangible results.

There’s a 25 per cent chance Britain could leave the E.U. without a Brexit deal: poll. So uncertain was that prospect that a special EU summit on Brexit that had been penciled in for next month to finalize a deal was taken off the table.

Laura Ingraham: The caravan of lies and manipulation – Americans see through Democrats' phony compassion

Saturday 16:20 GMT

Democrats' phony compassion politically timed in a desperate attempt to turn out Latino voters who themselves are seeing the wonders of the Trump economy, record low unemployment and the best economy in decades.

I say it's time to walk away from the Democrats' cynical game of identity politics and emotional manipulation and towards candidates whose policies result in higher wages and better security for all Americans.

Europe’s top court ordered Poland’s government on Friday to immediately halt implementation of a controversial law designed to force more than a dozen of the nation’s Supreme Court justices into early retirement.
