Donald Trump: US planning ‘tent cities’ for migrants

US President Donald Trump has ordered through the Pentagon the deployment of no less than 5,200 troops at the US-Mexico border over refugee and migrant influx.

Additionally, officials were monitoring another group of about 3,000 people that had gathered at a border crossing between Guatemala and Mexico.

Reports say several thousand Honduran migrants moved last week through Guatemala, and some were trying to cross to Mexico local media said.

The United States said on Monday it will send over 5,200 troops to help secure the border with Mexico, a far larger-than-expected deployment.

. Others soaked themselves in the nearby Novillero river.Tensions from a long trek through searing heat with tenuous supplies of food and other goods spilled over Saturday night when a dispute in a food line devolved into a beating. He said the group was near the Chiapas-Oaxaca border in southern Mexico.

Shaughnessy said the plan is to deploy the additional troops first to Texas and then to Arizona and California in support of U.S. Customs and Border Patrol.

The migrant caravan has been moving slowly north from Central America and its numbers have been dwindling.

President Donald Trump earlier said the thousands of Central American migrants heading north would find the USA military waiting for them.

But news reports quote unnamed USA officials as saying the White House is weighing a range of administrative and legal actions on grounds of national security to restrict the ability of migrants to seek asylum.

The Guatemalan government said in a statement that it regretted that the migrants passed on the opportunity to enter Tecun Uman in an orderly fashion and instead chose to cross violently "destroying public property, injuring police agents and throwing glass bottles and rocks". We will, if necessary, to increase the number of military. They represent a fraction of the approximately 5,200 troops approved for the border security mission stood up in response to the migrant caravan - still more than one thousand miles from the US border.

The decision to send active duty forces this time gives the Pentagon the ability to more rapidly mobile greater capability than would be immediately available with the Guard, officials tell Reuters.

Speaking on condition of anonymity, a USA official said the 5,000 figure was right - but cautioned that planning is still under way and said no final decisions have been made on numbers.

Perhaps Trump doesn't understand that it is legal for anyone on USA soil, even if they arrived without documentation or authorization, to claim asylum and start a legal process that can end with them being allowed to stay.

Military personnel are legally prohibited from engaging in immigration enforcement.

On Monday morning, he tweeted: "Many Gang Members and some very bad people are mixed into the Caravan heading to our Southern Border".

Trump said anyone wanting to get into the United States must do so through the legal process.

On Monday he warned that the military would be waiting.

They will bring border "personnel exactly where they need to be, regardless of the conditions", he said.

USA officials have told Reuters the support mission would be coordinated by the U.S. military's Northern Command.
