  • Homeland Security Can't Force Asylum Seekers to Wait in Mexico, Judge Rules

The Trump administration's policy does not do enough to ensure migrants do not face "undue risk to their lives or freedom" in Mexico, Judge Seeborg said.

Last year, Trump sent thousands of troops to the border as large waves of mostly Central American migrants and asylum seekers made their way north.

"Just the president passive-aggressively fantasizing on camera about ordering the USA military to use violence against unarmed women and children", said MSNBC's Chris Hayes of the remarks.

A seven-year-old migrant from Honduras holds the hand of his mother after a group of seven from Central America who were seeking asylum were apprehended by the U.S. Border Patrol for illegally crossing the Rio Grande river into the U.S. from Mexico in Penitas, Texas, U.S., January 9, 2019.

U.S. officers arrested or denied entry to over 103,000 people along the border with Mexico in March, a 35 percent increase over the prior month and more than twice as many as the same period past year, according to data released by U.S. Customs and Border Protection on Tuesday.

Now Trump's administration, led by anti-immigration ideologue Stephen Miller who acts as senior advisor to the president for policy, are trying to make the process more hard.

They also are looking at trying to curtail the remittances immigrants send back home, looking to erase some of the economic incentive that draws them to the USA, the official told reporters Tuesday, laying out a sweeping agenda for acting Homeland Security Secretary Kevin McAleenan, who is slated to start the job Wednesday. They had child separation. Overall, 44 percent of Americans express disapproval of Trump's handling of the issue, while 35 percent express approval.

A senior Border Patrol agent told a Senate hearing yesterday of dire conditions along the Texas border.

This includes migrants who claim to be children, but who are actually 18 or older, as well as adults who falsely claim to be parents of minors they're traveling with, according to Brian Hastings, chief of law enforcement operations for Customs and Border Protection.

"Dangerous people are coming here and the good people are dying", he said in San Antonio Wednesday. It was focused on freeing and otherwise helping children who come to the border without a parent or guardian and does not call for family separation. "They're coming like it's a picnic".

Peters said the problem "is, in a word, chaos" in the Trump White House. That could mean setting up temporary shelters, he added, and picking up other requests "consistent with things we've done in the past", according to the outlet.

Both Republican and Democratic leaders deplored the idea of separating families and were concerned about the shakeup at the department. "And I think the press should actually report it, but of course they won't".

Foreigners can apply for asylum through U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services, and trained asylum officers interview them, investigate their cases and award them green cards and paths to U.S. citizenship if they prevail. Asked whether he was considering nominating McAleenan as his permanent secretary, Trump said it "could happen".
