Currently, As many as 7,000 people are traveling from Central America toward the United States border. Many politicians claim that this is merely political.
Trump tweeted that since "Guatemala, Honduras and El Salvador were not able to do the job of stopping people from leaving their country and coming illegally to the U.S.," the United States "will now begin cutting off, or substantially reducing, the massive foreign aid routinely given to them."
Additionally, Vice President Mike Pence stated in an interview, “What the president of Honduras told me is that the caravan was organized by leftist organizations, political activists within Honduras, and he said it was being funded by outside groups, and even from Venezuela.” Many GOP members believe that George Soros and other democrats may be funding the caravan.

The migrants continue to march towards the United States and will demand entrance into the country.
