Rocks Thrown At Military By Migrant Caravan To Be Treated As Rifles

Mexico's ambassador to US claims there are very violent migrants in caravan Trump pressures Mexico to stop migrant caravans
Andrew Cummings | 02 November, 2018, 05:36

Earlier in the week, the administration said it would send thousands of troops to the border; on Thursday, Trump said these troops could treat migrants who throw rocks as if they were using firearms.

"Migrants seeking asylum will have to present themselves lawfully at a port of entry", Trump told reporters at the White House.

Trump has also contradicted military leaders this week on the number of troops preparing to go to the border, and the tents they will bring, which military leaders say are for border-patrol agents and Trump has implied will be used to house migrants. We're gonna consider, and I told them consider it a rifle.

Under the current Immigration and Nationality Act, "Any alien who is physically present in the United States or who arrives in the United States (whether or not at a designated port of arrival and including an alien who is brought to the United States after having been interdicted in worldwide or United States waters), irrespective of such alien's status, may apply for asylum in accordance with this section". "We have thousands of tents".

Migrants who cross illegally are generally arrested and often seek asylum or some other form of protection.

At least 5,000 members of the military, and perhaps as many as 15,000, are being dispatched to America's southern border ahead of multiple caravans that are coming up from Central America. Administration officials have railed against what they say are loopholes created to encourage people, especially from Central America, to come to the USA and claim asylum.

The president's idea to limit asylum seekers to those who have arrived at designated ports of entry could particularly impact those in the most unsafe circumstances, notes Geoffrey Hoffman, director of University of Houston Law Center's Immigration Clinic. Generally, only about 20 percent of applicants are approved.

But it remains unclear how many people now en route to the USA will even make it to the border. A second, smaller group of 1,000 or so is more than 200 miles behind the first. And you look at what's happening in Guatemala along with El Salvador and Honduras.

Trump has nonetheless mounted an enormous show of force in response.

Apple’s laptop line is more of a mess than ever
Apple has introduced a new MacBook Air with a 13-inch Retina display, Touch ID , the latest processors and a more portable design. It's got 17% less volume than the previous one, is 10% thinner at 15.6mm and Apple says it's kept the weight down to 1.2kg.

The migrant caravan making its way toward the USA border hasn't stopped but it is seeing some attrition after Mexico refused to provide the group with transportation.

But troop estimates have been changing at a dizzying pace.

Those units that regularly carry weapons will be allowed to deploy with them.

While it's true the underlying laws were the same, the Trump administration mandated anyone caught crossing the border illegally was to be criminally prosecuted.

Trump said Thursday he was "not going to put up with" any sort of violence directed at those US forces, warning the military would fight back.

Trump has rejected the idea he has been "fearmongering" and using the issue for political purposes, but on Thursday he blamed Democrats for the "incompetent, very, very stupid laws that we have". He added that an executive order was in the process of being finalized, but provided few details.

Trump also tweeted a video Wednesday alleging Democrats were responsible for allowing a homicidal immigrant into the US but provided no evidence supporting that claim.

Later, he told reporters at the press conference that migrants who attempt to use rocks to attack USA authorities will be treated as if they were using guns. As Massachusetts governor, Dukakis supported the furlough program.
