President Donald Trump threatened to withdraw from the North American Free Trade (NAFTA) agreement if Mexico does not quell the flow of illegal immigrants into the U.S., in an Easter Sunday tweet.

Trump’s tweets appear to have been sparked by a Fox News segment highlighting the progress of a current illegal immigrant caravan from Central America bound for the U.S. border. The migrants openly admit their desire to illegally emigrate to the U.S. and have organizers who do not believe in the concept of borders.

The president has long made his displeasure known about the current state of the NAFTA agreement and has repeatedly threatened to withdraw the U.S. if more favorable terms cannot be reached. Trump has also been frustrated recently with lack of Congressional funding for his proposed $25 billion border wall.

Mexican authorities have made no effort to stop the caravan, which is composed of hundreds of Central American migrants who illegally crossed into their country.
