Trump Says Mexican Troops ‘Unable or Unwilling’ to Stop Migrants

Posted November 02, 2018

White House spokeswoman Sarah Sanders pointed out that Trump "was also asked to come by some" and insisted that he'd gone to "represent the country in this moment".

Mark Krikorian, executive director of the Center for Immigration Studies, says an obstacle to keeping that promise is the plan to erect "tent cities" for asylum seekers.

Trump said families will remain together in tents and other structures that the Army Corps of Engineers is now putting together while their asylum cases play out.

Several caravans of migrants from Central America are slowly winding north. "We will consider that the maximum we can consider that, because they're throwing rocks viciously and violently". He says he will issue an executive order next week on immigration.

The migrants "are going to stay with us until the deportation or the asylum hearing takes place, we are not releasing them into the community", he said.

On another immigration front, Trump said this week he would seek to scrap the constitutional right of citizenship for USA -born children of non-citizens and illegal immigrants, saying he would issue an executive order on so-called birthright citizenship. The U.S. also doesn't have space at the border to manage the large-scale detention of migrants, with most facilities at capacity. The military is working to create space, but nothing has been finalized. But in recent days, officials from Mexico's immigrant-protection agency have organized rides for straggling women and children on the caravan as a humanitarian effort.

"In that case, the Obama administration had submitted evidence from senior officials from the Department of Homeland Security claiming that these mothers and children were national security risks", says Mukherjee. What is being prepared in the southwest United States is an army of occupation, the size of which has not been seen since the border wars of the Mexican Revolution of 1910-20. An official who spoke on the condition of anonymity said there are about 2,600 USA troops now at staging bases, largely in Texas, with several thousand more expected to flow in through the weekend and move into California and Arizona.

That's according to three people familiar with the plans who spoke to The Associated Press on Thursday on the condition of anonymity because they weren't authorized to speak publicly.

It is the latest increase, with 800 soldiers initially sent to the border by the Pentagon - a figure that then rose to 5,200 earlier this week.

The migrants have not said what route they intend to take northward or where on the US border they planned to reach.

US President Donald Trump said today that he would deploy as many as 15,000 military personnel to the border with Mexico in response to a caravan of Central American migrants making its way northward.

Controlling illegal migration has become a key campaigning issue used by the President ahead of the midterm elections as trump rallies to help Republicans in next week's vote.

At first there was just one so-called "caravan" of people seeking to enter the US.

Trump has sought to use immigration as an issue to motivate Republican voters ahead of the November 6 elections, where Republicans will seek to maintain control of both congressional chambers.
