'Our country is being stolen', says Trump

President Trump arrives at Palm Beach International Airport in Florida for Easter weekend

The BuzzFeed report notes that "no one has made any effort to stop" the migrants as they travel through Mexico without authorization.

Donald Trump returned to the offensive on immigration on Monday, repeating a claim that "caravans" of migrants from Central America are threatening to enter the U.S. via Mexico and demanding: "Act now Congress, our country is being stolen!"

As concern grows daily about the risky drugs, and criminal immigrants flowing into the country from the Mexican border, Trump blamed Mexico directly.

"More enforcement will not prevent people from coming to the United States escaping war, poverty from their home countries", she said in a telephone interview.

"'Caravans' coming. Republicans must go to Nuclear Option to pass tough laws NOW".

A few hours later in the morning, the president pivoted to the media, Amazon and the U.S. Postal Service, and the Justice Department in a series of tweets.

"For five days now", Adolfo Flores reported on Friday, "hundreds of Central Americans - children, women and men, a lot of them from Honduras - have boldly crossed immigration checkpoints, military bases, and police in a desperate, sometimes chaotic march toward the United States". Those detained after crossing the border are also sometimes released due to bed shortages and a court ruling that limits the detention of women and children in custody to 21 days.

"They want in on the act!" he wrote.

Trump rescinded the Obama-era program, which protects immigrants who arrived in the country without documents as children, but it is now tied up in the courts and the fate of the so-called "Dreamers" remains in a legal limbo. "I do love the Dreamers", Trump said at the annual Gridiron Club Dinner in March.

And given that Trump's administration rescinded DACA, immigration officials are not accepting applications from people who have not previously received deferred action protection.

Proposed DACA deals crafted by lawmakers and rejected by Trump also were not open to new participants. "We wanted to include DACA". And actually, it could even be more. They did not provide a timetable for submitting it to Congress and did not say whether provisions to help DACA recipients would be included. The Democrats would not do it. The country deported upwards of 76,000 Central Americans previous year.

Trump is now calling on Congress to invoke the "nuclear option", which would allow the Senate to pass immigration legislation with 50 votes, instead of the 60 votes that are needed today. The month prior, he said Republicans "are just wasting time" if they maintain the filibuster.

In light of Trump's call for the "nuclear option", a spokesman for Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell noted on Monday that Republican senators opposed changing existing rules governing the debate and passage of legislation.

Trump said he would like to reach a deal with Congress to protect young immigrants from deportation in exchange for funding to build his long-promised wall at the U.S. -Mexico border.

The president, in his tweets, criticized what he called "Catch & Release", a practice in which illegal aliens detained in the USA are sometimes released as they wait for hearings before immigration judges.

A spokeswoman for the White House did not immediately respond to an emailed request for comment.

Trump also threatened to end the North American Free Trade Agreement if Mexico does not do more to stop migrants on Mexico's northern border. While the move could be blocked by legal challenges and Congress, a successful bid to exit the pact could badly hit Mexico's economy, which in 2016 sent 73.3 percent of its exports to the U.S.

Outside the church on Sunday, the president said the Democrats "blew it" after having "had a great chance".
