Mexico should deport migrants trying to enter the US back to their home nations, Donald Trump has said, adding that many members of the so-called caravan were criminals and that the US would permanently seal its border if needed.
“Mexico should move the flag waving Migrants, many of whom are stone cold criminals, back to their countries. Do it by plane, do it by bus, do it anyway you want, but they are NOT coming into the U.S.A. We will close the Border permanently if need be. Congress, fund the WALL!” the US president tweeted on Monday.
Mexico announced that it will deport some of the 500 migrants involved in an altercation on the US-Mexico border on Sunday, in which US border guards used tear gas against a group that tried to force its way across the border.
