President Trump said Monday he has “instructed” Homeland Security Secretary
Kirstjen Nielsen not to allow “large caravans of people” into the U.S. as a group
of Central American Migrants
starts to reach the border, calling the situation a
“Despite the Democrat inspired laws on Sanctuary Cities and the Border being
so bad and one sided, I have instructed the Secretary of Homeland Security
not to let these large Caravans of people into our Country
. It is a disgrace. We
are the only Country in the World so naïve! WALL,” Trump tweeted early Monday.
The president’s directive came as a group of about 50 Central American
migrants who left southern Mexico in March reportedly reached the U.S.
border, planning to seek asylum. According to U.S. Citizenship and
Immigration Services, asylum seekers must “demonstrate [they] have
suffered persecution or fear that they will suffer persecution due to” five
factors: race, religion, nationalist, membership in a particular social group,
or political opinion."
The group left the Guatemala-Mexico border in late March and grew to more
than 1,000 migrants. More migrants will reportedly be arriving at the U.S.
border in the coming days. Last week, Mexico’s National Immigration Institute
said its agents found hundreds of migrants packed into trucks in the Gulf Coast
state of Veracruz, in the north-central state of Hidalgo, and in central Mexico.
