Trump plans 'tent cities' at US-Mexico border

Migrant caravan takes a break in southern Mexico Migrants and police clash, one killed

President Donald Trump warned the "caravan of migrants" approaching the US-Mexico border Monday that the US military will be waiting for them when they arrive.

It's a dramatic increase over the 800 to 1,000 troops initially forecast.

President Donald Trump is escalating his threats against a migrant caravan traveling to the US border, labelling the effort an "invasion" and declaring the "Military is waiting for you".

President Donald Trump has been tweeting repeatedly about the caravan, calling significant attention to it ahead of the mid-term elections.

General Terrence O'Shaughnessy, the head of U.S. Northern Command, defended the operation at a briefing on Tuesday.

On Monday morning, he tweeted: "Many Gang Members and some very bad people are mixed into the Caravan heading to our Southern Border".

Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto on Friday offered temporary work permits, medical care and other benefits to migrants if they agree to register with authorities and remain in the Mexican states of Chiapas and Oaxaca, far from the US border.

Children of migrants wait for a ride near Tapanatepec, Mexico, as their caravan continues toward the USA border, October 29, 2018.

"If they apply for asylum, we are going to hold them until such time as their trial takes place".

US economy grew at strong 3.5 percent rate in Q3
The housing market contracted at its steepest pace in more than a year in the third quarter, also dimming the economy's outlook. During the past 4 quarters, GDP has grown 3.0 percent. "The stock market is going to go up and down", he said.

Several thousand Central American migrants planned to resume their trek through southern Mexico before dawn Monday, while authorities in that country and Guatemala tried to sort out the killing of a migrant at a border crossing.On Sunday, while the band of migrants was resting and reorganizing in Tepanatepec, several hundred in another group more broke through border barriers in the Guatemala town of Tecun Uman just as members of the caravan did more than a week earlier.

The president has stepped up his focus on immigration in the days leading up to the midterm elections.

The troops will join the more than 2,000 National Guardsmen that Trump has already deployed to the border.

The White House is also weighing additional border security measures, including blocking those traveling in the caravan from seeking legal asylum and preventing them from entering the U.S.

The Pentagon already has sent 22 miles of concertina wire to the 1,954-mile-long border, he said, and has enough additional wire to cover 150 miles. The troops will include military police, combat engineers and others helping on the border.

"These migrants need water, diapers and basic necessities - not an army division", Shaw Drake, policy counsel for the ACLU's Border Rights Center in El Paso, said in a statement.

He added: "This is an invasion of our Country and our Military is waiting for you!"

Migrants are entitled under both USA and worldwide law to apply for asylum. U.S. Transportation Command posted a video on its Facebook page Monday of a C-17 transport plane that it said was delivering Army equipment to the Southwest border in support of the operation.

Perhaps Trump doesn't understand that it is legal for anyone on USA soil, even if they arrived without documentation or authorization, to claim asylum and start a legal process that can end with them being allowed to stay.
