In a Twitter post earlier on Tuesday, Trump said the caravan "heading to our "Weak Laws" Border, had better be stopped before it gets there".

He also threatened to kill the North American Free Trade Agreement, which is now being renegotiated with Mexico and.

"Republicans must go to Nuclear Option to pass tough laws NOW", Trump tweeted.

"If he thinks that because he says no to the DACA deal it's going to stop undocumented students and Dreamers like myself to not be vocal about the power that we have within our voices, then he's underestimating the power we have". The spending bill included $1.6 billion the border wall, far less than the $25 billion Trump has sought.

Trumps announcement came a day administration officials said theyre crafting a new legislative package aimed at closing immigration “loopholes.”.

The president has also been declaring protections for so-called Dreamer immigrants "dead", accusing Democrats of allowing "open borders, drugs and crime" and warning Mexico to halt the passage of "caravans" of immigrants or risk USA abandonment of the North American Free Trade Agreement. Projected to cost at least $20 billion, the package includes only $1.6 billion for border wall funding, most of it targeted towards repairs in the existing wall. And much of that money can be used only to fix existing segments, not to build new sections.

He's been complaining that US borders are too porous and its immigration laws are too weak.

Among the measures the administration is pursuing is ending special safeguards that prevent the immediate deportation of children arrested at the border and traveling alone.

Trump has been annoyed by the lack of progress on building what was the signature promise of his campaign: a "big, attractive wall" along the Mexican border.

It wasn't immediately clear exactly how the proposal would work or what kind of troops Trump wanted to deploy. But Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has dismissed that option in the past, saying Republicans will welcome the filibuster if they return to being the Senate minority. Some of those loopholes include a now policy that protects children under 18 from countries that don't border the US, who cross the border unaccompanied, from being deported without first seeing a judge and going through a lengthy deportation process. The current 51-49 Senate split favors Republicans. In January a federal court ruled that the Trump administration used flawed legal reasoning when it chose to end the Obama-era program, and ordered it to continue processing DACA renewals.

Notably, Trumps favored solution for extending the protections mustered only 39 votes in the Senate, meaning it couldnt have passed even if the rules had been changed. President tirade began Sunday morning, not long after the program "Fox and Friends" aired this segment about a caravan of Honduran immigrants on their way through Mexico towards the United States border where they plan to seek asylum. “Its like we have no border.”.

In southern Mexico, officials screened the dwindling number of hundreds of largely Central American migrants on Tuesday.

About 1,100 migrants, many from Honduras, have been marching along roadsides and train tracks in the southern Mexican state of Oaxaca. They began as short processions of migrants, some dressed in biblical garb and carrying crosses, as an Easter-season protest against the kidnappings, extortion, beatings and killings suffered by many Central American migrants as they cross Mexico.
