Trump Threatens to Send 15000 Troops to U.S.-Mexico Border

Migrants travelling towards the United States taking a rest along a road hoping to hitch a ride on a passing vehicle

Trump says this "has nothing to do with elections", but his timing is striking.

Trump also addressed the asylum policy in the USA, which now allows people to ask for asylum whether they enter the US legally or illegally.

The commander-in-chief gave troops headed to the U.S. -Mexico border a confusing message on Thursday when he said during a press conference that if migrants throw rocks at them, they should consider it a weapon.

"The move to send 5,200 active duty troops to the southern border is a craven political stunt that sets a bad precedent and is arguably an abuse of power", said Kelly Magsamen, a former senior Pentagon official who is now with the Center for American Progress left-leaning think tank. The military is working to create space, but nothing has been finalized.

The company had also scheduled a simultaneous launch event in New Delhi on October 30 but did not reschedule it for October 29 . The minimum storage configuration is 128GB, and the phone will also run Android 9.0 Pie out of the box, as previously reported.

Thousands of Central American migrants have again resumed their trek through southern Mexico after failing find buses to carry them.

Trump earlier Monday tweeted that "very bad people" were among the migrants seeking asylum.

Now more caravans have emerged.

Also, migrants have to ask for asylum at the official "ports of entry", he said. A second, smaller group of 1,000 or so is more than 200 miles behind the first. He has described the caravan as containing "very tough criminal elements" and suggesting to reporters that if they went into the middle of the caravan, "you're going to find MS-13, you're going to find Middle Eastern, you're going to find everything".

But federal police began pulling freight trucks over and forcing migrants off, saying their habit of clinging to the tops or sides of the trucks was risky. "You can ride inside, but not on the outside". It is his latest warning about the migrants, who are still weeks away from reaching the U.S. -Mexico border, in the lead-up to next week's midterm election. -Mexican border could reach 15,000 - roughly double the number the Pentagon said it now plans for a mission whose dimensions are shifting daily. They might as well go back down.

Obama rips Trump, GOP in fiery speeches for Midwest Dems
In 2002, he was arrested for making a bomb threat, according to Miami-Dade County court records. However, FBI Direct Christopher Wray has confirmed that they were risky and not "hoax devices".

On Monday, White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders was asked if troops at the border would adhere to posse comitatus, meaning armed forces can not be used in a domestic police role, but Sanders refused to give a definitive answer. "Mexico has stepped up in an unprecedented way", Sanders told Fox News. Mexican soldiers hurt, were unable, or unwilling to stop Caravan.

President Donald Trump maintained his focus on immigration Wednesday, saying Central American migrants in at least two caravans moving north toward the US border include "tough fighters" and criticizing the Mexican military for being "unable or unwilling" to deter them.

TRUMP: "At this very moment, large well-organized caravans of migrants are marching towards our southern border". "We have about 5,800". We'll do up to anywhere between 10 and 15,000 military personnel, on top of Border Patrol, [Immigration and Customs Enforcement] and everybody else at the border.

The president, speaking in the Roosevelt Room of the White House, told reporters: "We have no choice". A third band of about 500 from El Salvador has made it to Guatemala, and a fourth group of about 700 set out from the Salvadoran capital Wednesday. "And so when the president and supporters of his or people around him attack George Soros and say Soros is funding this caravan, they are trafficking in a well-known and historic anti-Semitic trope". I'm pretty good at estimating crowd size.

"Women push babies in strollers next to clusters of teenage boys".
