"Migrants seeking asylum will have to present themselves lawfully at a port of entry", Trump told reporters in the Roosevelt Room at the White House on November 1.

President Donald Trump said asylum-seekers will have to "lawfully present themselves" at a US port of entry in remarks he gave on November 1 addressing what he called a "crisis at the southern border".

As thousands of Central Americans march through Mexico toward the U.S. border, Mexican Ambassador to the U.S. Geronimo Gutierrez joins former acting ICE Director Tom Homan on "The Ingraham Angle" to debate solutions to stopping migrant caravans.

President Donald Trump said that Honduran caravan migrants who throw rocks at US law enforcement officials at the border could be fired upon.

Behind them, a third group of migrants from El Salvador had already made it to Guatemala, and on Wednesday a fourth group of about 700 Salvadorans set out from the capital, San Salvador, with plans to walk to the USA border, 1,500 miles away.

A US official told Reuters that as of Wednesday the Pentagon had identified more than 7,000 active-duty troops, which included about 2,000 on standby, that could be deployed to the border with Mexico if needed. -Mexican border in response to the still far-off caravans - roughly double the number the Pentagon said it now plans for a mission whose dimensions are shifting daily. The caravan, once estimated at more than 7,000 people, is now down to about 3,500 asylum-seekers and other migrants and is still hundreds of miles from the border.

On Tuesday, Gutierrez explained there have been multiple instances where migrants have been "very violent", while rebelling against border authorities.

Later Wednesday, Trump told ABC News, "We have to have a wall of people".

If the deployment reaches 15,000 troops, it would be roughly equivalent to the size of the USA military's presence in Afghanistan and three times the size of the presence in Iraq.

"As far as the caravan is concerned, our military is out", Trump said Wednesday.

And he has asserted that the United States is the only country to grant automatic citizenship to children born on its territory, despite the fact that more than 30 other nations have a similar "birthright citizenship" policies.

"You have caravans coming up that look a lot larger than it's reported, actually", Trump said.

As of press time Trump's proposal received muted media coverage and was not referenced on the online front page of the New York Times. "So we don't do stunts in this department".

He said Thursday that he would issue an executive order "sometime next week" that would be "quite comprehensive".
