United States President Donald Trump has threatened to close the US border with Mexico for an undisclosed period of time if his administration determines that its southern ally has lost control on its side. 


The repeated threat, which came on Thanksgiving Day in the US, is in response to thousands of migrants and refugees who have arrived in the border town of Tijuana, many hoping to apply for asylum. Trump said, if US find that it's uncontrollable, it will close entry into the country for a period of time until things can get under control. 

Thousands of Central Americans, fleeing violence, extreme poverty and political persecution, have made their way to the border over the past month as part of a caravan, dubbed as the Central American exodus. Thousands more are following behind. 

According to Mexico's Baja California state governor, more than 5,600 migrants and refugees have arrived in the Tijuana area in recent days.

Thousands of US troops have been deployed along the country's southern border with Mexico to help strengthen border security while offering only engineering, logistics and medical support.
