Trump promises executive order next week to change US asylum laws

Pentagon readies 7,000 troops for border duty as Trump warns of ‘gang members’ in caravan

Trump has ramped up his tough stance on illegal immigration, an issue that appeals to his core supporters, before elections on Tuesday that will determine whether his fellow Republicans keep control of Congress.

On average, once released, an asylum case takes three and half years to complete.

The 1965 Immigration and Nationality Act states that an alien who is physically present in the US, "whether or not at a designated port of arrival", may apply for asylum in accordance to laws.

Under the Immigration and Nationality Act, migrants claiming asylum are allowed to do so at the border crossings, but also if they cross illegally.

Trump made the comments Thursday in a speech on immigration.

"These illegal caravans will not be allowed into the United States and they should turn back now because they're wasting their time".

Mexico has said 2,800 to 3,000 people are in the caravan, which left Honduras in mid-October, although many are expected to drop off before reaching the USA border. Other large groups from Honduras and El Salvador are following behind them up through Guatemala and Mexico.

President Donald Trump on Friday attempted to clarify what he said the day before, when he claimed rocks thrown by migrants crossing into the United States would be considered the same as gunfire.

We knew it was a big chance. "He'll have them well drilled and hard to play against". "[The question] is for me that, not him". We've not had an Old Firm final for a good few years so it would have been incredible to be involved in that.

"We have thousands of tents". They're going to be very nice, and they're going to wait and if they don't get asylum, they get out. But immigrant advocates at the border earlier this year said that Customs and Border Patrol officers made it hard for migrants to cross bridges, turning them away at the midpoint between Mexico and the U.S. In June, officers were visible on bridges in the Rio Grande Valley, blocking pedestrians from crossing. And so they did, some for days in the cold and rain. "No, we do not have the capacity, capability to address that type of flow", she said.

Narzilloev ran a construction supply business in Moscow, but fled after he was extorted by local mafia and received death threats, including one from a man who called and said he knew where Narzilloev's son attended kindergarten, Narzilloev said. "I told them, 'Consider it a rifle"'.

In a lengthy speech on Thursday, Mr Trump said migrants are abusing the asylum system and making a "mockery" of immigration laws. "Has it happened yet?" he said.

Last week officials indicated 800 to 1,000 troops might be sent. The Mexican government is processing more than 2,000 requests for asylum. Immigration officials have turned away asylum-seekers at ports of entry because of overcrowding, telling them to return at a later date. Earlier in the week, the US President had claimed the migrant caravan had claimed there were terrorists, unknown Middle-Easterners and MS-13 gang members in the caravan, even while admitting he had no proof.

It also remained unclear how many migrants would make it; 20 days of scorching heat, constant walking, chills, rain and illness had taken their toll. Federal prosecutors have also fought to narrow the definition of political asylum.

"The border is closed to these people". Mexico's Interior Department says almost 3,000 of the migrants in the first caravan have applied for refuge in Mexico and hundreds more have returned home.

The US president used a string of extraordinary claims to sound the alarm over border security ahead of the key vote, while defending his suggestion that up to 15,000 soldiers could be sent to the frontier.
