Trump Threatens Crackdown on Asylum-Seekers

Trump says border troops could hit 15K, surprising Pentagon Trump's Deployment of US Forces on S Border to Stock Immigration Fear - Pelosi

That's because asylum-seekers, along with unaccompanied children from countries other than Mexico and Canada, have special protections enshrined in law, based on the principle that vulnerable individuals should have a chance to have their claims heard before they are shipped back to potential danger. Another contingent is trying to make additional headway by pushing to Tierra Blanca, Veracruz, which lies about 80 extra miles (128 kilometers) to the north.

The president said he will send about 15,000 armed troops, border patrol officers and ICE agents to the border to block asylum seekers from crossing into U.S. territory.

US President Donald Trump has backtracked from his suggestion to have soldiers shoot migrants who throw stones at the US-Mexico border. "They do that with us they're going to be arrested for a very long time".

"If these caravans are allowed into our country, only bigger and more emboldened caravans will follow - and you see that's what's happening now", Trump said. The U.S. also doesn't have space at the border to manage the large-scale detention of migrants, with most facilities at capacity. A second, smaller group of 1,000 or so migrants is more than 200 miles behind the first caravan.

Responding to Mr Yunes in an open letter, the migrants said the governor's decision to withdraw his offer to help transport people hundreds of kilometres was unacceptable.

Tensions are fraying the edges of the caravan of Central American migrants making their way through southern Mexico. "We're going to hold them right there", he said.

At a meeting hosted by the Council on Foreign Relations in New York, Nielsen was asked repeatedly about how her immigration enforcement agencies would carry out the potentially unconstitutional plans Trump outlined without detail, including a suggestion that soldiers would fire at people throwing rocks near the US-Mexico border. 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.

Mexico is now faced with the unprecedented situation of having three caravans stretched out over 500 kilometres of highways in the states of Chiapas, Oaxaca and Veracruz, with a total of more than 6,000 migrants. The first, largest group of mainly Honduran migrants entered Mexico on October 19.

In any case, Fox News also reports that there was some confusion over whether the caravan was heading for the California border or for the much closer border crossing in McAllen, Texas. That group includes Hondurans, Salvadorans and some Guatemalans.

Babies born in the US are deemed American citizens under the Constitution's 14th Amendment, which grants citizenship to "all persons born or naturalized in the United States".

"This caravan, this group of poor people, including a lot of women and children, doesn't pose a threat not a national security threat".

Immigration agents and police have been nibbling at the edges of the first two caravans. There has also been pressure on the main caravan, with federal police pulling over freight trucks that pick up migrants and forcing them off, saying that clinging to the tops or sides of the trucks was unsafe. They were exhausted and dehydrated, pleading for water as most had had none all day. A 140-year-old law called the Posse Comitatus Act generally bars a president from using the active-duty military within U.S boundaries.

"Migrants seeking asylum will have to present themselves lawfully at a port of entry", Trump told reporters at the White House, painting a caravan of migrants travelling from Central America toward the United States as a unsafe threat. "We want them to come into our country", he said.
