Mattis approves US troops at border with Mexico

Police halt 2nd migrant group trying to enter Mexico

The U.S. defense secretary on Friday approved a request to deploy additional U.S. troops along the U.S. -Mexico border, fulfilling President Trump's vow to use the American military in an expanding campaign to stop a caravan of migrants and asylum seekers.

In what seems to be a growing concern for the Mexico, the government faces a dilemma between averting the travel of several thousand Central American migrants towards the U.S. border in a caravan or improving its worldwide human rights image, a report in the ABC News stated.

President Trump has vowed to take steps to prevent the migrants from crossing the USA border and has slammed Mexican authorities for failing to stop the caravan.

A larger group of thousands of Central American migrants has been winding its way through southern Mexico with the goal of reaching the USA border. A White House official said "a wide range of administrative, legal and legislative options" were being considered, but that no decisions had been made.

"Let's go to Mexico", shouted the migrants in the group as they headed for the Mexican customs office.

Thousands of migrants, majority Honduran, are crossing Mexico on foot, headed toward the USA border.

But when Election Day rolls around on November 6, the caravan could still be somewhere in the middle of Mexico, depending on the group's location, how fast it's been traveling and how long it's taken other groups of migrants to cross the country.

"They are terrorizing us", he said.

"There are people fainting, there are wounded", said Martin Rojas, an agent of Grupo Beta who spoke to The Associated Press after dropping off a group of women and children in Tapanatepec after spotting them on a highway trudging through temperatures approaching 104 degrees Fahrenheit (40 degrees Celsius).

Another group of Central American migrants is setting out in a caravan in hopes that the strength of numbers will help them reach the United States.

Search For Jayme Closs Enters 2nd Week; Sheriff Asks For 2,000 Volunteers
Barron County's sheriff is once again putting out a call for volunteers in the search for missing and endangered teen Jayme Closs. The group is gathering at the staging area at 1883 Highway 25 in Barron, also known as The Hungry Hollow Grounds.

A coordinator of the caravan said they would strike out again before dawn for Tapanatepec, about 29 miles (46 kilometers) away across the Oaxaca state line.

There's a possibility some members will split off and try to make their own way to the US-Mexico border.

When MacCallum asked if that could include cutting aid to Guatemala, Honduras and El Salvador - the countries numerous migrants originated from - Nielsen reiterated that any and all measures are possible to protect America's borders and citizens.

The wall celebrated Friday replaces shorter, older fencing installed in the 1990s that was now out of date and operationally inadequate, Nielsen said.

The group crossed into Mexico a week ago, almost a week after the caravan formed in San Pedro Sula, Honduras.

Not long after the caravan resumed its advance Saturday, government officials lent them a hand.

President Donald Trump, meanwhile, reiterated that the country needs "a strong, attractive border".

'Our destiny is to get to the border, ' said Orellana, who left three children behind in San Pedro Sula.

The Hope Border Institute of El Paso, Texas, published information October 26 about the group being referred to as a "caravan", which it says numbers between 3,000 and 7,000 people and, of those, about 2,000 are youth and children. He also harshly criticized the Democrats for standing in the way of effectively updating immigration laws.
