As everyone must surely know by now there is a huge caravan of over 1,200 illegal immigrants crossing Mexico coming from Central and South America with the intention of crossing the border of the United States in violation of Federal law.

Alfonso Navarrete,  Mexico’s interior minister, did not address the issue of the caravan directly, but on Twitter he wrote that he had spoken to the U.S. Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen on Monday and that the two had “agreed to analyze the best ways to attend to the flows of migrants in accordance with the laws of each country.”

Mexican Senator Angelica de la Pena, who presides over the Senate’s human rights commission, told Reuters that Mexico should protect migrants’ rights despite the pressure from Trump, while former President Vicente Fox called for Mexican officials to take a stand against Trump’s attacks. Trump keeps “blackmailing, offending and denigrating Mexico and Mexicans,” he wrote on Twitter on Monday.

Under the laws of Mexico, people who enter Mexico legally from  Central America are generally allowed to move freely through the country, even if their intent is to illegally enter the United States.

President Trump spoke out on Twitter on Monday, accusing Mexico of “doing very little, if not NOTHING” to stop the flow of immigrants crossing the U.S. border illegally. “They must stop the big drug and people flows, or I will stop their cash cow, NAFTA,” he concluded.

Just 30 minutes ago President Trump tweeted giving rise to the writing of this article.

The big Caravan of People from Honduras, now coming across Mexico and heading to our “Weak Laws” Border, had better be stopped before it gets there. Cash cow NAFTA is in play, as is foreign aid to Honduras and the countries that allow this to happen.
