It already made news last week that the Trump Administration ordered the National Guard to the border in a few states to give US Customs and Border Patrol extra support during the “high season” of illegal immigration.
Now, they are also planning to send in a posse of attorneys and judges to help process the caravan headed towards the US southern border filled with alleged asylum seekers.
This week legal professionals are starting to arrive at the border, reports the Texas Tribune. When the anticipated caravan reaches the border, if anyone crosses illegally they “will be referred for prosecution.” Should anyone claim asylum, they will be processed with immediate attention and if their claims are “without merit” these posers will be deported back to where they came from.
“If you enter the United States illegally, let me be clear: you have broken the law. And we will enforce the law through prosecution of illegal border crossers,” a Department of Homeland Security official told media in a statement. “DHS encourages persons with asylum or other similar claims to seek protections in the first safe country they enter, including Mexico.”
The DHS isn’t aware on of how many migrants will actually make it. The caravan, which is an annual occurrence, had 1,5000 people. It has dwindled down to the double digits now, with most people disappearing in Mexico, some attempting to cross the California border.
“The President called, Monday, for Mexico to police its own illegal immigrants, intercept what remains of the caravan, and send it back home,” reports the Daily Wire.
