Trump says rocks thrown by migrants to be treated as ‘rifles’

Trump says rocks thrown by migrants to be treated as ‘rifles’

We have about 5,000, eight [thousand], we'll go up to anywhere between ten and 15,000 military personnel on top of Border Patrol, ICE, and everybody else at the border, ' Trump said. Not good - and the kids right up to the front, ' Trump said. 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.

Under the current Immigration and Nationality Act, "Any alien who is physically present in the United States or who arrives in the United States (whether or not at a designated port of arrival and including an alien who is brought to the United States after having been interdicted in global or United States waters), irrespective of such alien's status, may apply for asylum in accordance with this section".

"These illegal caravans will not be allowed into the United States and they should turn back now because they are wasting their time", Trump said. The military is working to create space, but nothing has been finalized. Illegal aliens from Central America are required to be released after 20 days in detention if they are traveling with children.

Thousands of Central American migrants have again resumed their trek through southern Mexico after failing find buses to carry them.

Now more caravans have emerged.

Asked Monday whether the administration was considering closing the southern border, White House spokeswoman Sarah Sanders said, "we have a number of options on the table and we're exploring those". A second, smaller group of 1,000 or so is more than 200 miles behind the first.

They were spending Tuesday night in tents in an abandoned bus station. The migrants refused, saying they meant to continue. Several Guatemalan police officers and migrants were injured, according to the Associated Press. "You can ride inside, but not on the outside".

The American approach seems to mimic the Israeli tactics used by the IDF to repel Palestinian protesters at the border, denouncing them as armed and risky Hamas operatives.

The number of migrants will decline once the new rules are established, he said.

The president was also critical of Mexico, declaring that Mexican soldiers "were unable, or unwilling to stop" the migrants.

Those travelling with the caravan have told Al Jazeera they are fleeing violence, including political persecution, poverty, and poor healthcare. "We have about 5,800". Defense officials tell VOA that military personnel will be moving border patrol agents around, setting up razor wire fencing and building temporary housing facilities for border agents when needed.

President Donald Trump put forward the claim that the caravans are "a lot" larger than what is being reported - and cited his own skills at estimating crowd sizes to back it up.

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".

Trump has been hitting the campaign trail hard this week as he attempts to energise his Republican base ahead of the midterm elections.

Worn down by days of long walks, many migrants have dropped out and returned home or applied for protected status in Mexico.

A migrant child barely able to continue onward jumps onto a truck to rest during the caravan to Tapachula, Mexico. The Mexican government said the group now consists of 4,000 people, while organizers helping the migrants say there are 10,000.
