DHS: More personnel headed to border to combat crisis

Trump cuts aid to Central American countries as migrant crisis deepens

And they said Trump's threat to close the border with Mexico, if carried out, would hurt the U.S. economy.

CBP expected March to be the highest month for encounters at the southern border in a decade, according to McAleenan. CBC's Kim Brunhuber reports.

He said Mexico needs to solidify its southern border with Guatemala to prevent the caravans from heading north through Mexico to the US and that the three Central American counties need to curb migrants from leaving their countries.

The State Department said in a statement that it will suspend 2017 and 2018 payments to the trio of nations that have been home to some of the migrant caravans that have marched through Mexico to the U.S. border.

Officials hope to have as many as 300 people returned per day by the end of the week, focusing particularly on those who come in between ports of entry, said the official, who had knowledge of the plans but was unauthorized to speak publicly and spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity.

Monica Ganley, principal at Quarterra, a consultancy specialising in Latin American agricultural issues and trade told the news outlet that a closed border would see price hikes for a number of items.

Because, hey, surprise, "Nearly half of all imported USA vegetables and 40 percent of imported fruit are grown in Mexico, according to the latest data from the United States Department of Agriculture".

A State Department spokesman said in a statement it was carrying out Trump's directive by ending aid programs to the three Central American nations, known as the Northern Triangle.

"It's unworkable and unrealistic, and I don't think he could really do it", said Rufus Yerxa, president of the National Foreign Trade Council on Sunday.

Taking drastic action over illegal immigration, President Donald Trump moved Saturday to cut direct aid to El Salvador, Guatemala and Honduras, whose citizens are fleeing north and overwhelming US resources at the southern border. "So, we are truly in a crisis", Johnson said during an interview with MSNBC last week.

President Trump is making the right call cutting aid to Guatemala, Hondorus and El Salvador and by pushing to potentially close the southern border, Sen. He wrote: "Our detention areas are maxed out & we will take no more illegals".

Mario Garcia, a 45-year-old bricklayer in El Salvador, said he was setting off for the United States regardless of the president's threat to close the frontier.

Mr Trump has so far been unable to convince Congress to tighten asylum laws or fund his border wall.

Earlier Monday morning, a top White House economic adviser declined to specify what economic impacts the administration expects if Trump closes the US-Mexico border this week. Likewise, refrigerated trucks full of beef and other perishable commodities would jam border crossings. Several political personalities took to Twitter to voice their support for the move, with some claiming closing the border is the "only solution at this point" and that the situation is "getting out of hand". "In terms of a long-term effect, it's basically shooting yourself in your foot".
