‘CARAVAN’ CRISIS: Authorities Admit Over 150 Migrants into the United States

posted by Hannity Staff - 5.04.18

The United States government permitted dozens more Central American migrants into the US this week; allowing the asylum seekers a chance to plead their case and ask for legal-resident status in America.

According to Reuters, federal officials admitted at least 158 undocumented workers into the country at the US-Mexico border outside of San Diego, California despite harsh criticism from the Trump administration and other top aides.

“Seventy men, women and children were allowed into the crowded port of entry border crossing early Thursday morning, according to Alex Mensing, a caravan organizer with advocacy group Pueblos Sin Fronteras,” writes Reuters.

Attorney General Jeff Sessions deployed dozens of additional judges and attorneys to the border crossing this week to help process the migrant ‘caravan’ as they attempt to cross into the US from Mexico.

“We are not going to let this country be overwhelmed. People are not going to caravan or otherwise stampede our border,” said Sessions. “We need legality and integrity in the system.”

‘CARAVAN’ CRISIS: Over 50 Asylum Seekers ALLOWED into USA

More than 50 Central American migrant workers seeking asylum were admitted into the United States this week and have been permitted to “have their claims processed,” said the organizers behind the ‘caravan.’

NBC News reports that 53 migrants are currently in the process of obtaining legal-resident status at the US-Mexico border crossing outside San Diego, California.

Hundreds of undocumented workers remain in Tijuana awaiting further instructions.

“I can’t take it here anymore,” said one migrant who was admitted into the US Wednesday. “The nights are too cold and sleeping on the floor is painful. We have to walk a mile to use the bathroom every day at a nearby shelter. I can’t do it any longer.”

Attorney General Jeff Sessions deployed dozens of additional attorneys to the border crossing in recent days to help federal agents “better prosecute illegal entries into our country.”

Earlier this week, 11 individuals were charged with illegally entering the United States after successfully sneaking across the porous border between the two nations.

“We are not going to let this country be overwhelmed. People are not going to caravan or otherwise stampede our border,” said Sessions. “We need legality and integrity in the system.”

'CARAVAN' CRISIS: Group Say Trump Threatening Immigrants With ‘MASS VIOLENCE’

The organizers behind a massive “caravan” of US-destined immigrants slammed the Trump administration while traveling through Mexico Tuesday, saying the US President was threatening Central Americans with “threats of mass violence.”

According to Fox News, the leaders of the 1,000-immigrant strong march towards the United States’ southern border accused Trump of “bullying” the refugee community; adding his “caravan” will continue to stand with all “displaced peoples.”

“On April 1st, the U.S. President opportunistically invoked refugee caravans as a pretext for threatening immigrants already in the country, specifically DACA recipients, with a so-called ‘Nuclear Option’ to remove their protections from detention and deportation,” said a statement from People Without Borders.

“In the face of this bullying and these threats of mass violence, we continue to stand in solidarity with displaced people of all races, ethnicities, creeds, abilities, and gender and sexual identities,” the organization said.

President Trump called for “tougher laws” Monday night following news of the approaching Central American immigrants, saying “Honduras, Mexico and many other countries that the U.S. is very generous to, sends many of their people to our country through our WEAK IMMIGRATION POLICIES. Caravans are heading here. Must pass tough laws and build the WALL. Democrats allow open borders, drugs and crime!”
