Trump's hype on migrants, illegal immigration

Trump says border troops could hit 15K, surprising Pentagon

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 caravan, once estimated at more than 7,000 people, is now down to about 3,500 asylum-seekers and other migrants and is still hundreds of miles from the border.

Trump has railed against illegal immigration, including several caravans of migrants from Central America slowly moving toward the USA border.

According to a document published by a Fox News anchor Thursday evening, a group of migrants on one of the caravans heading towards the us border have already filed a lawsuit against the Trump administration for acting unconstitutionally against them.

In a meandering speech at the White House about immigration, Trump recycled numerous talking points he touts on the campaign trail - but offered little in the way of concrete ways to address the problems he embellished.

"We're not going to stand for what they did to the Mexican military and the Mexican police", he added, again referring to the rock-throwing incident. "Not going to happen to our soldiers".

"The United States can not possibly absorb them all", Trump said during a news conference at the White House. The suspect in that case, Robert Bowers, reportedly posted anti-Semitic and anti-immigrant comments on social media, claiming Jews were helping a migrant caravan that he likened to "invaders".

The migrants had already made a grueling 40-mile (65-kilometer) trek from Juchitan, Oaxaca, on Thursday, after they failed to get the bus transportation they had hoped for. What I don't want is these people throwing rocks. The Salvadorans expressed misgivings that they would be deported, so they turned around and waded across a shallow stretch of the river to enter Mexico.

"The people in the caravan have walked for weeks under the rain and sun from Central America, where they left their houses and families; they were forced to leave their countries due to the violence, death and hunger", the letter reads.

The assessment also indicates military planners are concerned about the presence of "unregulated armed militia" groups showing up at the border in areas where USA troops will operate.

Thousands of Central American migrants traveling in a caravan through southern Mexico resumed their journey Saturday toward the United States by hitchhiking and walking along highways.

He added: "No nation can allow itself to be overwhelmed by uncontrolled people rushing our border". The second group includes Hondurans, Salvadorans and some Guatemalans.

In the smaller caravans, immigration agents and police have at times detained migrants. Federal police have been pulling freight trucks over and forcing migrants off, saying their habit of clinging to the tops or sides of the trucks was risky.

"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 risky threat. They were exhausted and dehydrated, pleading for water as most had had none all day.

A USA official says the first 100 or so active-duty troops have arrived at the U.S.

Trump's fascistic proposals yesterday come amid a series of dictatorial immigration measures, including proposing to repeal the 14th Amendment by executive order, eliminating the right of infants born on US soil to American citizenship, as well as deploying 15,000 soldiers to the US-Mexico border, more than the US has deployed in Iraq, Afghanistan and Syria combined. Some people call it an invasion.These are tough people in many cases; a lot of young men, strong men and a lot of men that maybe we don't want in our country.This isn't an innocent group of people.
