  • President Trump speaks to the media before departing on Marine One at the White House

He also did not clarify how he wants to detain asylum-seekers, but hinted that he wants to build tent cities and "we're going to hold them right there" without providing details.

The memo, obtained by Newsweek, states that troops "may perform missions that require direct contact with migrants and/or the public", which "may require them to be armed".

Hours after Trump's remarks on Thursday, the Nigerian Army cited his comments to justify the recent fatal shooting of rock throwers in Nigeria.

Associated Press President Donald Trump launched his campaign with an attack on immigrants and hasn't stopped since. Lawyers on both the right and left have said Trump can't alter the interpretation of the amendment by fiat.

That's because asylum-seekers, along with unaccompanied children from countries other than Mexico and Canada, have special protections enshrined in law, based on the principle that vulnerable individuals should have a chance to have their claims heard before they are shipped back to potential danger. President Donald Trump has said the number could reach 15,000.

The caravan otherwise has been overwhelmingly peaceful, receiving applause and donated food from residents of the towns they pass.

Nevertheless, she acknowledged they may still have tried, and were still trying to do so.

Republican Senator Chuck Grassley, an ally of the president and head of the powerful Senate Judiciary Committee, said in a letter to the secretaries of the Department of Homeland Security and the State Department that his office had received information that several members of the caravan had "significant criminal histories".

Although the rag-tag caravan of impoverished and unarmed migrants is almost a thousand kilometers away from the U.S. border in Mexico's deep south and could take weeks to reach the United States border on foot, Trump raised the specter of an imminent and violent "invasion" in what many observers saw as a crude attempt to rally his nativist supporters.

It's not clear how Trump's proposal would work under existing law.

The policy resulted in 2,654 children being separated and widespread outrage before Trump canceled it in June.

Notably, he said his executive order would come next week, which means it could be after Election Day.

Asylum is not a program for those living in poverty.

THE FACTS: He's largely right.

"Decisions regarding arming of DoD personnel for self-defense purposes and related rules for the use of force", reads an October 25, 2018 memorandum from the Department of Homeland Security to the Pentagon, "will be informed by the circumstances of their missions and made by the DoD.and in consultation with the CBP". Because of court backlogs, some cases take years to complete, and limits on indefinite detention of children result in many families being released in the meantime.

The offer of buses to Mexico City and the subsequent reversal came after the migrants' request for buses to the capital were ignored by the Mexican government days earlier when they were in Juchitan, Oaxaca state. Claims have spiked in recent years, and there is now a backlog of more than 800,000 cases pending in immigration court.

His announcement marked Trump's latest attempt to keep the issue of immigration front-and-center in the final stretch before next Tuesday's elections.

In 2014, when there was an increase in families crossing the country's border, the Obama administration detained families who were waiting on asylum claims. That number is basically unchanged from 2009.

The lawsuit was filed in the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia and is so rushed that it targets Thomas Homan, the retired former acting Director of ICE.
