  • Stuck at US border caravan migrants losing hope

Illegal immigration was a central theme of Trump's presidential bid, and he repeatedly invoked the issue ahead of the November 6 midterm elections as a caravan of migrants from Central America made their way toward the United States and deployed some 5,800 us troops to the border.

McAleenan told reporters earlier Monday that as many as 1,000 people that were part of a migrant caravan traveling through Central America and Mexico sought to enter the United States illegally.

Meanwhile, some Central Americans have approached federal police officers and the Beta Group - a unit of the National Institute of Migration specialised in providing guidance and assistance to migrants - upon learning that there is an option for people who wish to return voluntarily to their countries of origin.

Trump also told Politico that he saw little need to work with Congress over immigration reforms to address the roughly 700,000 so-called Dreamers, young adults who were brought to the United States illegally as children, and would instead see how court challenges play out.

On the opposite side of the spectrum, Trump insisted that some migrants had "grabbed" random children to increase their chances of being granted asylum.

The President later also denied that the tear gas was used against children.

What started as a peaceful march spiraled out of control Sunday as migrants heading toward a pedestrian border crossing were met by Mexican police trying to block their path, journalists at the scene told CNN. But most hang on to the hope of entering the U.S.

House Republicans approved $5 billion for Trump's wall in a key committee, but a bipartisan bill in the Senate allocates just $1.6 billion for the border.

Democratic lawmakers and immigrant rights groups blasted the border agents' Sunday tactics.




Firearms were used 45 times in budget year 2013 compared with 17 in 2017, according to data from Customs and Border Protection.

Yesterday, U.S. Customs and Border Protection agents and officers in San Diego effectively managed an extremely risky situation involving over 1,000 individuals who sought to enter the U.S. unlawfully in large groups.

"And in some cases, you know, they are not the parents.

But we can not take the whole responsibility of dealing with this situation", he said.

"I don't want them to stay", she says in Spanish, "because they're rebellious, they're people who've only come to create conflict".

Ms Nielsen accused migrant caravan organisers of using women and children as "human shields" during their encounters with law enforcement, "putting vulnerable people in harm's way". We've got to have $5 billion for border security.

"The Democrats would like people to believe that they're legitimate asylum seekers, but legitimate legitimate asylum seekers don't attack border guards".

The agents' response - firing tear gas into the crowd - triggered widespread outrage and rekindled complaints that the Border Patrol, bolstered by President Donald Trump's tough talk, is too quick to use force, particularly when responding to people throwing rocks. The chaos followed what began as a peaceful march to appeal for the U.S. to speed processing of asylum claims.

Four agents were hit with rocks, but due to their protective gear they were not seriously injured, McAleenan said.
