After US President Donald Trump made several threats to cut foreign aid to Honduras, Guatemala and El Salvador if they did not halt the migration caravan, he applauded Mexico for sending troops to the border.
A caravan of some 3,000 migrants fleeing Honduras is continuing to walk north to the U.S. border, as Trump threatened to deploy the military and close the U.S. -Mexico border. If Mexico ultimately cracks down on the caravan, it would be seen as a coup for the administration in the United States - especially among Trump's supporters -and would speak to how successful efforts to build bridges with the Mexican government have been, even as Trump continues to boast about building a border wall.
He did not seem concerned about Trump's threat to close the U.S. -Mexico border, saying the threat should be viewed in light of the hotly contested midterm elections in the United States, in which Trump has made border security a major campaign issue.
It was the second time in six months that Trump suggested the possibility of military action to curb immigration at the U.S. -Mexico border.
Vigil said he believes Trump is partly to blame for the recent exodus from Honduras because of USA involvement in the country's contested presidential election a year ago.

The migrants say they organized for the long and hard journey on social media, but Washington suspects the group has been organized as a deliberate provocation.
In Mexico, authorities say that any immigrant who crosses the border illegally will be deported. During a presidential debate, Lopez Obrador indicated his administration would stop doing "dirty work" for the United States by detaining Central American migrants.
Mexico says people arriving at the border will be able to apply for refugee status, and has asked for help from the United Nations refugee agency.

"We have evidence that this caravan is also very much politically motivated", he claimed.
