United Nations Refugee Agency has warned President Trump that he must allow the thousands of caravan migrants, currently marching toward the US Southern Border, free access into the United States.

The UN has stated that the migrants are "fleeing persecution and violence" in their home countries and demands that the president stands down and allows them to flood into America.

Up to 14,000 migrants from Central American countries are pushing north through Mexico toward US soil and are expected to reach their destination in the next few weeks, with some expected to begin arriving as early as next week, just before the midterm elections.

In anticipation of their arrival, Trump has deployed over 5,000 troops to defend the border, from what the US Government is considering as an "invasion."

According to the Daily Wire, Trump has vehemently opposed the march, warning Central American countries that they could lose U.S. aid if they do nothing.

But the U.N., which is aiding the caravan by putting 50 workers within the group made up mostly of young men, now says the U.S. must admit them.

In an interview with Voice of America, Andrej Mahecic, a spokesman for the UN Refugee Agency, said:

"Our position globally is that the individuals who are fleeing persecution and violence need to be given access to territory and protection including refugee status and determination procedure.

"And, if the people who are fleeing persecution and violence enter Mexico, they need to be provided access to the Mexican asylum system and those entering the United States need to be provided access to the American asylum system."

Meanwhile, the Pentagon is deploying more than 5,00 active-duty Army troops to the southern border. "Border security is national security," Gen. Terrence O'Shaughnessy, head of U.S. Northern Command, told reporters Monday.

The general said the 5,200 soldiers will aid the 2,100 National Guard personnel already deployed on the border.

Reports of violence have been emerging from Mexico, with new reports that a second and even third caravan are also on their way to the U.S. border.

A group of Central American migrants who were reportedly facing deportation set fire to a Mexican immigration facility, Televisa Noticias reported.

Mexican authorities have also reported the use of firearms and Molotov cocktails within the migrant caravans.

And Trump also warned that the caravan must be stopped, writing on Twitter on Wednesday: "The Caravans are made up of some very tough fighters and people. Fought back hard and viciously against Mexico at Northern Border before breaking through. Mexican soldiers hurt, were unable, or unwilling to stop Caravan. Should stop them before they reach our Border, but won’t!"



Trump also said: "Our military is being mobilized at the Southern Border. Many more troops coming. We will NOT let these Caravans, which are also made up of some very bad thugs and gang members, into the U.S. Our Border is sacred, must come in legally. TURN AROUND!"
