Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said the U.S. is quickly approaching a “moment of crisis” on immigration as a “caravan” of over 4,000 migrants makes its way up Central America toward Mexico, while placing much of the onus on America’s southern neighbor to deal with the situation.
“We are quickly reaching a point which appears to be a moment of crisis,” said Pompeo during a press conference in Mexico with Mexican Foreign Secretary Luis Videgaray Caso.
The article goes on to state the following:
“Foreign Secretary Videgaray and I spoke about the importance of stopping this flow before it reaches the U.S. border. We are deeply aware that the way that Mexico will handle this, the way that you will handle this is your sovereign decision. Mexico will make its decision, its leaders and its people will decide the best way to achieve what I believe are our shared objectives,” he added.
RELATED: At about the same time Pompeo was speaking, the migrant caravan of an estimated 3,000 to 4,000 people broke down the barrier fence at the Guatemala-Mexico border and surged forward as police stood helplessly by.
