Trump Threatens to Send 15000 Troops to U.S.-Mexico Border

In an apparent effort to use anti-immigrant sentiment as a get-out-the-vote tool, President Donald Trump said Thursday that his administration is finalizing a plan to deny asylum to migrants who cross into the USA illegally ― a move that would be sure to draw legal challenges should it come to fruition. "The United States can not possibly absorb them all".

The duties of the troops sent to the border will be limited in scope.

In the past, the practice of metering has resulted in individuals deciding not to endure a lengthy wait to try to get into the country legally and instead to cross illegally.

They planned to take advantage of cool overnight and morning temperatures by hitting the road at 3 Juchitan for a trek to Santa Maria Jalapa del Marques, about 35 miles (57 kilometers) to the west. Outside the structure many more bedded down on blankets or cardboard sheets in the grass, with some lashing tarps to the foliage for rudimentary shelter. "We do not do stunts in this department", Mr. Mattis told reporters at the Pentagon, during a joint briefing with South Korean Defense Minister Jeong Kyeong-doo.

U.S. Secretary of State Michael Pompeo said October 19 that four Mexican police officers were injured in a standoff at the Mexican border, in which an undetermined number of migrants were also injured, according to CNN.

Yesterday, Trump said the United States could send as many as 15,000 troops to the border to confront the migrant caravan, more than twice the number previously disclosed by defence officials. "This is an invasion.We are building massive numbers of tents and we will hold them in tents".

Federal police in Mexico searched the second caravan on Tuesday and arrested Adín Josué, 21, on unspecified drug charges; and Juan Carlos, 47, who is wanted in connection with three homicides in Honduras. He has been on his own since his mother died four years ago, and he hopes to reach an aunt who lives in Los Angeles and have a chance to work and live in peace.

He did not specify who those third parties were, but said "I have talked about there being people tied to criminal activities who have infiltrated the caravan. we have detained some".

While Matias Romero would carry them toward the Gulf coast city of Veracruz and a route toward the Texas border, another large caravan early this year passed through Veracruz and then veered back toward Mexico City and eventually tried to head to Tijuana in the far northwest. The initial group is significantly diminished from its estimated peak at more than 7,000 migrants.

"We are not releasing anymore", he said.

He said: "Oh, they'll be here fast". The Mexican government said the group now consists of 4,000 people, while organizers helping the migrants say there are 10,000.

It's unclear whether the restrictions would apply only to those traveling in the caravans or would extend beyond the caravans to all people trying to enter the country.

And he has asserted that the United States is the only country to grant automatic citizenship to children born on its territory, despite the fact that more than 30 other nations have a similar "birthright citizenship" policies. "But if that's not possible, well, permission here in Mexico to work or stay here". The Posse Comitatus Act proscribes what activities the military can carry out on USA soil.
