Trump: We Will Hold Asylum Seekers in Tent Cities Until Hearing
WASHINGTON, DC – October 30, 2018
President Donald Trump has no intention of letting migrants from Central America, traveling from Honduras to the United States, penetrate into the country, he said in an an interview on Monday’s edition of the Fox News Channel’s “Ingraham Angle.”
Trump added that he will sends troops to the southern border, not the National Guard, as was done before, because many migrants are criminals, and their penetration in the US is to be compared with an invasion.
He also stated that asylum applicants will be held in tent cities until their hearing takes place, and people with rejected asylum applications will “get out.”
Trump stated, “If they apply for asylum, we’re going to hold them until such time as their trial takes place.”
He added, “We’re going to put up — we’re going to build tent cities. … We’re going to have tents. They’re going to be very nice, and they’re going to wait, and if they don’t get asylum, they get out.”
Migrant caravans are humanitarian actions, the organizers of which aim to draw attention to the fate of the inhabitants of the poor republics of Central America.
The migrant horde, at least 4,000 in number, is seeking better socio-economic opportunities in America, something lacking in their home country.
On October 29, it became known that Washington is going to send 5,000 troops to the border with Mexico.
