Trump promises immigration crackdown ahead of US congressional elections

In a speech Thursday, he suggested without evidence that the migrant caravans are full of hardened criminals; in fact, they are mostly poor people with few belongings who are fleeing gang violence. "Those who choose to break our laws and enter illegally will no longer be able to use meritless claims to enter our country". "Instead, migrants seeking asylum will have to present themselves lawfully at a port of entry".

Trump did not back down Wednesday from his controversial proposal to upend the very concept of American citizenship.

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

"A group of people in the migrant caravan is suing the USA government in federal court", said Daily Mail David Martosko, Daily Mail editor.

"We're not going to stand for people doing what they did to the Mexican military and the Mexican police".

"I would like to ask the migrants, while the problems get solved and we wait for an in-depth solution to this issue, that they accept an invitation to go to a city of Veracruz further to the south, to a bigger city where they will have adequate installations to provide them with safety".

Thousands of Central American migrants resumed their slow trek through southern Mexico yesterday as immigration agents and police nibbled at the edges of the two caravans now in the country. "Trump was frustrated in his effort to build a physical wall on the border, now he's trying to build a human wall by using the U.S. military". A second caravan of about 3,000 migrants is also traveling to the United States, followed by at least two smaller groups.

Fani, a young pregnant woman and her husband Gustavo, said, "The Mexican people have been nothing but kind, giving us food, water and love".

Trump repeatedly blamed Democrats and the courts for the caravan and other unauthorised immigration.

"These illegal caravans will not be allowed into the United States and they should turn back now because they're wasting their time", Trump said Thursday.

Chuck Hagel, a former Republican senator and Vietnam War veteran who served as defense secretary under President Barack Obama, told CNN the mission is "folly" because there is "no need, no threat".

Several immigration experts have pointed out the Obama administration did not implement a policy of separating families. Their determination to journey some 2,000 miles, despite the bad suffering and complete lack of money or resources, is what also has inspired many in Mexico to come to their aid.

Trump has drawn a hard line on immigration just ahead of the midterm elections. "There are tens of thousands of migrants between the Guatemala border and the USA border moving toward us at any given time".

President Donald Trump on Thursday said he would order border agents to refuse to consider the asylum claims of people apprehended while crossing the border between ports of entry - though immigration lawyers asserted the move runs afoul of US and worldwide law. The U.S. also doesn't have space at the border to manage the large-scale detention of migrants, with most facilities at capacity.

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

"They operate under the guise of citizen patrols", the report reads, warning of "incidents of unregulated militias stealing National Guard equipment during deployments".

On Thursday, Trump claimed this immigration crisis is largely caused by the USA having "the hottest economy anywhere in the world". And the majority of people in them apply for asylum.
