Skip to comments.With Trumpís Tough Deterrents, Many Asylum Seekers on the Border are Giving Up

Pushed beyond their limits by prolonged waits in dangerous and squalid conditions in parts of Northern Mexico, thousands of caravan members who had been waiting to seek asylum in the United States appear to have given up, Mexican officials said, dealing President Trump an apparent win after a humbling week for his immigration agenda.
About 6,000 asylum seekers who had traveled en masse, many of them in defiance of Mr. Trumps demands that they turn around, arrived in Northern Mexico in late November as part of a caravan that originated in Honduras. Since then, more than 1,000 have accepted an offer to be returned home by the Mexican government, the officials said. Another 1,000 have decided to stay in Mexico, accepting work permits that were offered to them last fall, at the height of international consternation over how to deal with the growing presence of migrant caravans.

Democrats and Children harmed the most.
Uh...so clearly the don’t need asylum.
Best election, best POTUS, evah!
MAGA!!! Finish the wall!!
A huge powerful wall will protect our borders.
It will also serve as a powerful deterrent, sending the message loud and clear: Dont even THINK about sneaking in illegally!
If the “Wait In Mexico” policy survives court challenges, that will be a game changer.
Waiting in Mexico for months or years, will make them turn around and head home or just stay in Mexico permanently.
Where did people get the idea that if things were tough in their own country, that we somehow owed them a fix for it?
Fix your own nation folks. Leave us the heck alone.
Boo f’n hoo.
Trump is finessing the art of quick rebar/razor wire impediments. He needs to keep it up and get even better
Maybe Trump’s many, many FR enemies will STHU for ten minutes.
We need a powerful Jedi like Yoda to mind control them: “This isn’t the country you’re looking for”. “Go home, band together, and fight, kill, torture the bad guys; whatever it takes to get rid of the gangs”.
“whatever it takes to get rid of the gangs”
Most of them aren’t fleeing gangs. That is their excuse to apply for asylum. Most are seeking better paying jobs.
How many have been granted asylum since November 2018? Why don’t we have those numbers? And while youre at it, throw in the numbers of H1B visas since then.
Let’s have the whole story, not this whitewashed crap.
Good..I want these cockroaches to go back where they came from. The second they come to the border, tell them to turn their asses around! They are NOT coming here for a better life, they are coming here for the FREE Govt goodies they are promised by the Dems, food stamps, welfare, free housing, education, etc..and Dems ask in return ONE thing..their vote
My understanding is that most aren’t granted asylum. Like 80-90% are rejected (who show up for their court hearing).
The bigger issue is that most don’t show up for their court hearing for asylum. They just disappear into the country...
That is why the Wait In Mexico initiative is so important. That policy is heading to court.
TOTAL BS!!! They are trying to down play the NE declaration and the crisis on the border!! Move along nothing to see here... Let the brainwashing commence!! Where is Baghdad bob when you need him!!! Perfect meme!!
In the mean time, another caravan is
on its way. There are also smaller
groups that have gotten thru in areas
like Antelope Wells, NM.
“The group was the 28th group of over 100 people apprehended in the El Paso sector since late October.”
