Migrants who throw rocks will be arrested, not shot

Trump says border troops could hit 15K, surprising Pentagon Trump details plan for tougher US entry for migrants

"Migrants seeking asylum will have to present themselves lawfully at a port of entry", Trump said.

And it also was unclear whether Trump has the legal authority to change the rules.

The Immigration and Nationality Act grants immigrants the ability to apply for asylum, but Trump insisted his plan would pass legal muster. And any change would nearly certainly be immediately challenged in court.

But there could very well be, ' Trump said.

The legally binding agreement requires facilities housing detained minors to be run by licensed programmes and provide toilets, drinking water, contact with family, and adequate temperature control and ventilation, among other conditions.

U.S. President Donald Trump delivers remarks on immigration and border security in the Roosevelt Room of the White House, in Washington, D.C., on November 1, 2018.

Probably not. In remarks to reporters a day after suggesting that rock throwers would be considered as using rifles, Trump declared that any members of the caravan who throw rocks will be arrested, not shot.

Retired Col. Paul Yingling, who commanded US troops in Iraq, was blunter.

"They've overrun the Mexican police and they've overrun and hurt, badly, Mexican soldiers", Trump said of so-called migrant "caravans" from Central America.

With or without the Mexican government's help, it remained unclear how many migrants would make it to the US border; many days of scorching heat, constant walking, chills, rain and illness have taken their toll. And the majority of people in them apply for asylum.

Protesters and "anarchists" arriving along the border also pose a risk, according to the report. In McAllen, Texas, in the Rio Grande Valley, workers were seen installing additional gates and fences along a walkway on a bridge between the US and Mexico, according to The Monitor paper of McAllen.

Immigrant advocates say the new tactics at the border are aimed at discouraging asylum claims.




Under current protocol, many asylum seekers are released while their cases make their way through backlogged courts - a process that can take years. Generally, only about 20 percent of applicants are approved.

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.

The migrants in the caravans are mostly from Honduras, where it started, as well as El Salvador and Guatemala.

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

The President reaffirmed the group will not pass into the US on Friday, just days after the White House deployed over 5,000 troops to secure the border.

Last week officials indicated 800 to 1,000 troops might be sent. On Monday, they announced that about 5,200 were being deployed.

Just 24 hours later, Trump caught the Pentagon by surprise.

Trump has ramped up his tough stance on illegal immigration in recent days. "But we're going to arrest those people quickly and for a long time", Trump added.

"The real issue is whether the military is being used for partisan political purposes", said Dubik, a senior fellow with the Institute for the Study of War.

He has also threatened to indefinitely detain asylum-seekers in "tent cities" and floated the idea of ending birthright citizenship by executive order.

He responded that stone throwing would be seen as a lethal threat. "What they did to Mexican military is disgrace".

The spot includes expletives uttered by Bracamontes during his trial professing regret at not killing more officials. The ad features courtroom footage of the trial of an immigrant convicted of murder with the words "Democrats let him in... who else would Democrats let in?"
