Trump signed a proclamation Wednesday night ordering the secretary of defense to support the Department of Homeland Security in securing the southern border to stop the flow of drugs and migrants.

He added that his administration "has no choice but to act".

Trump also referred to an unrelated terrorist attack in Manhattan in November previous year carried out by Sayfullo Saipov, an immigrant from Uzbekistan, who investigators say appears to have been radicalized online in the US, not in his home country.

Trump said Thursday, without providing details, that women in the caravan had been raped "at levels that nobody has ever seen before".

Many Hondurans who had fled after the contested presidential election in November already had amassed in the southern Mexican border city of Tapachula and joined the caravan when it set off late last month. Kate Linthicum, a Times reporter who covered the caravan, described it as peaceful and family-oriented, with about 300 children among its members.

In March, 37,393 immigrants were caught along the Southwest border, the highest monthly total since December 2016. I'd say it's likely but not sure if they will have bigger or smaller group next year.
