The migrants say they are fleeing persecution, violence and poverty back home. "Instead, migrants seeking asylum will have to present themselves lawfully at a port of entry".
The Immigration and Nationality Act states that anyone who arrives in the U.S. "whether or not at a designated port of arrival" may apply for asylum if he or she has a "well-founded fear of persecution on account of race, religion, nationality, membership in a particular social group, or political opinion". I would like to remind President Trump that USA law states very clearly that it does not matter where or how people seeking safe haven enter the country - they are allowed to apply for asylum.
The U.S. president has spent the final days of the campaign hammering the issue as he tries to energize Republican voters, and his favorite target has been the migrant caravan of nearly 4,000 people that is still more than 800 miles away from the nearest U.S. border.
"I want to offer the migrants that while this problem is being resolved they accept my invitation to go to a city in Veracruz" that has the conditions to host them, he said. We came upon them and stopped our vehicle to hear their stories.
This after members of the migrant group reportedly pelted Mexican military forces with rocks this week.
Critics said the speech seemed mostly created to scare, with no specifics on what mechanisms Trump meant to use to push through his desired changes. "You put them and all law enforcement in a very hard emotional, let alone security posture".
This comes after President Trump announced the White House could send as many as 15,000 troops to secure the border. "Immigrants have built that country", she said.
"As far as the caravan is concerned, our military is out", Trump said Wednesday.

Trump's half-hour remarks were chock-full of off-base claims about his own record on immigration, and about former President Barack Obama's.
Several immigration experts have pointed out the Obama administration did not implement a policy of separating families. We will NOT let these Caravans, which are also made up of some very bad thugs and gang members, into the US.

Associated Press President Donald Trump launched his campaign with an attack on immigrants and hasn't stopped since.
Donald Trump has warned migrants making their way toward the USA, that US troops at the border would return fire if caravan members throw rocks at them.
But as migrants struggle with exhaustion, blisters, sickness, and swollen feet far from the closest US border, tempers flared within their ranks. "Opioids are a bigger threat". Just a week ago the caravan was reportedly as large as 7,000 people but Fox News reports that number had dropped down to about 4,000.
The number of such immigrants had reached a height of 12.2 million in 2007, representing about 4 percent of the USA population, before declining due in part to a weakening US economy. "They have helped us in new ways to slow this down, to break this up and keep it from moving as aggressively toward the United States". The number conceivably could reach 10,000, counting the 2,100 National Guard soldiers who have been operating along the border for months as part of a separate but related mission.
