    158 caravan asylum seekers let in to U.S. from Mexico

    MAY 3, 2018 / 2:06 PM / UPDATED 32 MINUTES AGO

    Dozens more caravan asylum seekers let in to U.S. from Mexico

    Delphine Schrank

    TIJUANA (Reuters) - Dozens more Central American caravan migrants were let into the United States to begin pleading their case for asylum on Thursday despite sharp criticism from U.S. President Donald Trump, bringing the total to 158 since last weekend.

    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.

    Another 62 migrants were still waiting for a chance to begin the asylum process, he said.

    On Monday, U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions beefed up legal resources on the border, including more prosecutors and judges, to handle the groups of people from the caravan.

    Throughout the caravan’s 2,000-mile (3,220-km) odyssey from southern Mexico, its mostly Honduran, Salvadoran and Guatemalan members kept hoping they would ultimately get the chance to make their case for asylum in the United States,
    All the while, they have known their pleas might be rejected.

    U.S. border officials had allowed through only small groups at a time, saying the busy San Ysidro crossing to San Diego was saturated and the rest must be patient.

    The migrants have spent four chilly night camped outside the port of entry.


    In response to the caravan’s arrival at the U.S-Mexico border crossing, the U.S. Justice Department said it was sending 35 additional assistant U.S. attorneys and 18 immigration judges to the border.

    Trump wants to tighten laws to make it harder for people to claim asylum, citing a more than tenfold rise in asylum claims versus 2011.


    He has railed against so-called “catch and release” policies that allow some migrants to remain in the United States while their cases await hearing in a clogged legal system.


    The Republican president’s hard-line stance on immigration, both legal and illegal, has animated many of his core supporters even as his support among the broader American public hovers around 40 percent.

    I would like to know how many of these folks claims are being considered credible after their initial asylum interview. Would someone please share that information with the American public?

    Why?

    Well, I assume the prosecutors are there to deal with the illegals hiding out among the asylum seekers that are being prosecuted for reentry and those caught sneaking across the border illegally. They've already caught some that fit that description. I further assume the judges are there for that and to expedite the hearings on the asylum seekers that pass the initial interview. Why do you think the prosecutors and judges were sent?

    Heard on the radio this morning that although some have been let in they have been advised not to get their hopes up on staying. Hope it is true.

    I hope that is true Jean. We need to see busloads deported and send the message...DO NOT COME HERE!

    Cut off the foreign aid to Mexico and Central America. They take our money, laugh in our face, and dump their people on us.

    They need to clean up their own countries.

    No more kicking this can down the road.

    Send them ALL back, they are not welcome or wanted here.

    Soros is loaded...he can go open businesses South of the border.
