Trump says U.S. will cut aid over the migrant caravan

Migrants from Honduras, Guatemala and El Salvador say they’re fleeing poverty, persecution and gang violence. The caravan is now estimated to include more than 7,200 migrants, and more are expected to join on Tuesday, potentially pushing the number past 10,000.

They started out on their journey from San Pedro Sula, Honduras, traveling across Guatemala and into southern Mexico. A similar exodus in April with 1,500 migrants reached the U.S. border, and 250 migrants applied for asylum.
