USA finalising plan to crack down on asylum seekers

The group of approximately 3,500 migrants is travelling slowly through Mexico and remains weeks away from arriving at the border, where many reportedly plan to follow legal procedures and seek asylum.

Trump's professed and enacted policy towards thousands of caravanners seeking asylum in the United States is shockingly unconstitutional.

He promised an executive order sometime next week that would ban migrants from claiming asylum if they cross the border illegally, and would set up vast tent cities that would hold anyone coming over the border.

"I hope there won't be that", Trump said, but added that anybody throwing rocks at the military service members will be considered to be using a firearm, "because there's not much difference when you get hit in the face with a rock".

The leading migrant caravan trying to make its way to the United States border is admitting defeat after asking the Mexican government to provide dozens of buses to speed up the group's journey northward. It left Honduras in mid-October, although many are expected to drop off before reaching the USA border.

The second caravan, also of about 1,000 to 1,500 people, entered Mexico earlier this week and is now in Mapastepec, Chiapas.

"This case is not ripe for adjudication, but regardless, if President Trump issues a presidential proclamation denying entry to this class of aliens, then Supreme Court precedent makes clear Congress has given him the legal authority to do so", he said. He intends to hammer this message on the campaign trail now through Tuesday's elections, hosting at least eight rallies in 10 states.

"They won't have to fire", Trump said, referring to the military's response to the hypothetical rock throwing. "We are stopping people at the border". On previous days, they have ordered passenger vans to stop transporting migrants. In the meantime, these troops will fill in the gaps and form a human wall to help border agents handle the crisis along our 2,000-mile southern border.

Most of the migrants in the caravans are from Honduras.

Speaking at a Council on Foreign Relations event, she said: "What we've seen is continued attempts to scan. Vote Republican now!" The ad claimed, "President Donald J. Trump and Republicans are making America safe again!"

"If they do that with us, they're going to be arrested for a long time".

"What Trump said is stupid", Maldonado said while walking to the town of Donaji.

Immigrant rights groups are expected to challenge any limits placed on access to asylum. "For that reason, we also offered them transportation so that, if possible, tomorrow. they may be able to go to Mexico City or to the place they wish".

The U.S. has also signed the U.N.'s Convention and Protocol Relating to the Status of Refugees, which means it can not return a refugee to a country where his or her life would be threatened on the grounds of race, religion, nationality, membership in a particular social group or political opinion. She first crossed into the USA seven years ago but was deported last year. Just a week ago the caravan was reportedly as large as 7,000 people but Fox News reports that number had dropped down to about 4,000.

In a speech at the White House on Thursday, Trump ratcheted up his attacks on the migrants, insisting without evidence that the impoverished families walking toward the USA are violent invaders who will endanger Americans' safety if they're allowed into the country.
