Sessions sends more prosecutors, supervisory judges to border to handle immigration cases

A total of 145 Central American migrants who traveled as part of a "caravan" from their home countries through Mexico have so far entered the United States to seek asylum, officials said.

Fellow co-host Ainsley Earhardt commented that asylum seekers should have been told to "stay in Mexico". One mom and her three kids and one father and his daughter wait patiently by the gate.

The 65 people allowed to enter was a sharp increase, as only a few asylum seekers had been allowed in each day for the past week. Customs and Border Protection in San Ysidro, according to media reports from Tijuana.

The caravan has been criticized by President Trump, and on Wednesday Atty.

Some of the waiting had been told that USA border facilities were at capacity and could not accept more applicants, according to Gault.

Most of the asylum seekers who have traveled to the USA with the caravan, which left southern Mexico for the US border a month ago, are coming from countries like Guatemala, El Salvador and Honduras, where they say they face threats of violence and/or political persecution if they return. "It's very clear that President Trump and Attorney General Sessions do not understand this section of federal law", says attorney Nicole Ramos, director of the Border Rights Project of Al Otro Lado, who represents members of the caravan.

"We are sending a message worldwide: Don't come illegally".

The caravan is an annual event organised by volunteer group Pueblos Sin Fronteras (PSF), Spanish for "people without borders". By deploying these additional resources to the Southwest border, the Justice Department and the Trump Administration take yet another step in protecting our nation, its borders, and its citizens. "We must not let attempts to undermine our lawful immigration system deter that progress, and the men and women at EOIR are proud to play a small role in the Attorney General's response to the crisis at our Southwest border".

Sessions said in a press release that 35 new assistant US attorney positions have been allocated to USA attorney's offices along the Southwest border.
