Trump on Migrants Throwing Rocks: ‘I Didn’t Say Shoot’

President Trump speaks to the media before departing on Marine One at the White House

Honduran migrant Saul Guzman, 48, spent the night under a tin roof in the Oaxaca state town of Matias Romero with his son Dannys, 12, before setting out for the town of Donaji, 30 miles north.

Any asylum-seekers who cross the border illegally will be deported, and those who cross at points of entry will be held in tent cities with their families while they await adjudication, rather than be released into the US, Trump said on Thursday at the White House.

The official says 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. Three smaller ones are following behind it.

In stressing that his administration will not allow a "catch and release" policy, Trump also claimed this week that 25 million to 30 million immigrants now live in the country illegally because previous administrations had "released" immigrants in the USA after they had been caught crossing the border as they awaited immigration hearings. Both propositions are legally dubious.

President Trump has, to say the least, been exploiting the caravan by making it into a sensationalized wedge issue that paints the migrants themselves as barbarians coming to storm the gates of attractive, civilized America (a good, non-partisan radio report can be found here). We're gonna consider, and I told them consider it a rifle.

A third caravan of migrants - this time from El Salvador - waded over the Suchiate River into Mexico on Friday, bringing another 1,000 to 1,500 people hoping to reach the USA border.

"This complaint is poorly written and looks more like a press release than a lawsuit, using politically charged terms and hyperbole instead of carefully reasoned legal claims", says Breitbart News Senior Legal Editor Ken Klukowski.

In his hometown of Ocotepeque, Honduras, he left behind a coffin, either for his mother, who suffers dementia, "or for me, if I don't make it", Guzman said.

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

The revelations come amid efforts by South Korea and the USA to lead North Korea to give up its nuclear weapons programs. She told The Washington Post she was "picked" as a rape target by a guard at a detention facility in North Hamgyong.

Google Employees In Boulder Join Worldwide Protests
Twitter account Google Walkout For Real Change is documenting the various protests around the world and offering words of support. Employees posted photos and video of the walkout on social media, but it's unclear how much of Google's workforce participated.

A USA official says the first 100 or so active-duty troops have arrived at the U.S. "I always want to tell the truth, when I can I tell the truth", Trump told ABC News in an interview. He also said he would detain migrants, including those seeking asylum, in "tent cities" near the border. But Trump offered few details on how exactly he planned to overhaul an asylum system he claimed was plagued by "endemic abuse" that he said "makes a mockery of our immigration system".

"He should think of us as equals".

She said her department had discovered nothing to indicate a "sustained effort to hack voting infrastructure" by any foreign government.

The migrants have not said what route they intend to take, but any trek through the Gulf coast state of Veracruz could take them toward the Texas border.

Asked by a reporter if US troops might fire on the migrant caravan full of women and children that is now about 900 miles away, and moving very slowly, Trump said: "I hope not, I hope not - but it's the military".

"For at least for a matter of days, if not longer, there will be very extreme harm for asylum seekers", she warns.

While Trump tried to portray the caravans as a "crisis" the closest group is still hundreds of kilometres from the U.S. border.

But many are hopeful.

"Asylum was never meant to alleviate all problems, even all serious problems, that people face every day all over the world", he said in June.
