Trump Backtracks, Says Troops Will Not Fire On Migrant Caravan

The first, largest group of nearly 4,000 entered nearly two weeks ago and is now in Donaji, Oaxaca.

President Donald Trump on Friday backtracked from his suggestion a day earlier that American troops sent to the USA border with Mexico would be free to fire on migrants who throw rocks at them, saying that rock-throwers would only be arrested.

According to a document published by a Fox News anchor Thursday evening, a group of migrants on one of the caravans heading towards the USA border have already filed a lawsuit against the Trump administration for acting unconstitutionally against them. He said he told the armed troops deployed to the border that they could open fire if migrants throw rocks at them, something Border Patrol agents have done in the past. If they want to throw rocks at our military, our military fights back.

In a statement posted on its social media pages, the army claimed the sect in massive numbers forced their way into the troops checkpoint after overrunning the police force.

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

Trump made the comments Thursday in a speech on immigration. President Donald Trump has said the number could reach 15,000.

Mr Trump said he "wouldn't be surprised" if George Soros, the billionaire and prominent Democrat donor, was funding the caravans, echoing unproven claims voiced by far-right commentators.

But many appear to be growing increasingly angry with caravan organizers after confusion broke out regarding buses that would have taken migrants to Mexico City more quickly.

At a campaign rally in Miami on Friday, former President Barack Obama accused Mr Trump of cynical politics and a political stunt over his plans to send troops to the Mexican border.

Similar caravans have occurred regularly over the years and passed largely unnoticed, but Trump has focused on the latest marchers seeking to make border security a hot-button issue in next week's midterm elections.

U.S. Customs and Border Protection "is violating the law and turning away asylum seekers on Texas bridges", said Shaw Drake, an El Paso-based attorney with the Texas ACLU's Border Rights Center.

USA intelligence and law enforcement officials warned in October of attempts to interfere in the midterms by agencies of Russia, China and Iran.

A White House aide said Trump is expected to unveil or propose changes to the way migrants can request asylum. Some threw rocks and glass bottles and local first responders told Reuters that 26-year-old Henry Adalid was killed by a rubber bullet.

In June, the attorney general, Jeff Sessions, ordered United States immigration courts to stop granting asylum to victims of domestic abuse and gang violence.

The setback comes days after caravan leaders asked for "safe and dignified" transport to Mexico City, a checkpoint along the way for a group that has been dwindling in size as members either apply for protected status in Mexico or drop out over fatigue exacerbated by the sweltering weather conditions they have been facing.
