The Heat: US-Mexico border tensions

The Heat

Immigration, and securing the U.S.-Mexico border, continue to be major issues for United States President Donald Trump.

As thousands of migrants try the enter the U.S., either by seeking asylum or crossing illegally, President Trump is warning that he’s prepared to shut down the border between the United States and Mexico.

And, he’s taking a hard line against El Salvador, Guatemala and Honduras announcing that he’s cutting aid to the three Central America countries. He says they haven’t done enough to stop large numbers of their citizens heading to the U.S..
