Trump reverses claim that U.S. would shoot rock-throwing migrants

Trump says border troops could hit 15K, surprising Pentagon

President Donald Trump has ordered USA troops to the Mexican border in response to the caravans of migrants. They are a mix of forces, including military police, an assault helicopter battalion, various communications, medical and headquarters units, combat engineers, planners and public affairs units. I told them to consider it a rifle.

Gov. Miguel Angel Yunes announced Friday evening that authorities in the Gulf Coast state of Veracruz would be providing not only humanitarian assistance to the migrants but buses to leapfrog them to the country's capital, three weeks after the migrants began their grueling journey. "I always want to tell the truth, when I can I tell the truth", Trump told ABC News in an interview. "TURN AROUND!" the US President tweeted earlier, even as he was mocked for scaremongering to drum up support ahead of elections and vilifying desperately poor people, many of them women and children, escaping poverty and violence in their home country. It's disgraceful that those countries aren't able to stop this because they should be able to stop it before it starts.

In the same speech, he said the troops on the border - which now number 5,200 - would have instructions to open fire if migrants threw rocks at them, as they had at the Mexican authorities. Trump was criticized by lawmakers in both parties earlier this year after his administration separated about 3,000 children from caregivers after they crossed the Mexican border.

The migrants claim that the Trump administration has violated their due process, citing the Fifth Amendment.

He responded that stone throwing would be seen as a lethal threat. Trump has said this week that those in the caravan would not get asylum - though US law allows them the right to apply - and warned them to turn around.

Voting issues mark final stretch of Georgia governor’s race
Trump will travel Sunday to Georgia, appearing with Kemp as part of the president's final multistate tour ahead of the midterms. Last week an NBC News/Marist poll showed Kemp leading Abrams by 2 percentage points. "We're here to support Stacey Abrams ".

While it's true that asylum seekers often miss their court dates, the president seems to have overstated this issue. "No, we do not have the capacity, capability to address that type of flow", she said.

Trump's recent statements include that he plans to sign an order that could lead to the detention of migrants crossing the southern border, and barring anyone caught crossing illegally from claiming asylum.

Walking back his previous comments, US President Donald Trump said that illegal migrants who attack the US military with rocks will not be fired upon, but will be detained. "I say, consider it a rifle", Trump said in remarks at the White House, where he was expected to speak about immigration policy but instead it into a campaign speech. We emptied our vehicle and gave them what we had, and drove back quickly to a rural store to buy dozens of 1.5 liter water bottles, hundreds of bananas, and milk for the children. Some have been waiting a long time.

About 20 percent of asylum applications were granted in 2017, according to the Department of Homeland Security.

Despite Trump's increasingly severe warnings of immigration chaos, the government on Wednesday issued figures saying that only about 400,000 people have been apprehended at the border in 2018, down from around 1.6 million in 2000.

Last night, "Extra" caught up with Heidi Klum at her annual Halloween party at LAVO New York, where she dressed up as Fiona from " Shrek ".

But as migrants struggle with exhaustion, blisters, sickness, and swollen feet far from the closest USA border, tempers flared within their ranks.

Trump did not back down Wednesday from his controversial proposal to upend the very concept of American citizenship.

Trump highlighted the case of Luis Bracamontes, a twice-deported immigrant from Mexico sentenced to death in California for killing two police officers.

Senator Jeff Flake, an Arizona Republican, called the ad "sickening" and said Republicans "should denounce it". He deemed the group of migrants from Central America a threat to Americans.
