The nonpartisan Pew Research Center estimates there were about 11.3 million immigrants in the US illegally in 2016, the most recent data available.

In the same press conference, Trump also made said his administration is finalising plans that would include potentially denying asylum claims if migrants and refugees cross in between ports of entry.

"In some very limited cases, we have seen access, but they've been quickly prevented or mitigated".

On Oct. 30, Trump said he will have more tent cities built at the southern border to hold migrants who cross into America, which would help solve space problems federal authorities have had due to the number of migrants.

US President Donald Trump has backtracked from his suggestion to have soldiers shoot migrants who throw stones at the US-Mexico border.

Trump suggested that any rocks thrown at United States troops will be considered equivalent to rifles, allowing troops to engage with live ammunition.

After three grueling weeks walking along highways and hitching rides, thousands of Central American migrants traveling in a caravan through southern Mexico were told Friday that they would soon be leapfrogging ahead to the nation's capital in buses only to have their hopes dashed nearly immediately when the offer was pulled. "When they throw rocks like what they did to the Mexican military and police I say consider it a rifle".

In a statement posted on its social media pages, the army claimed the sect in massive numbers forced their way into the troops checkpoint after overrunning the police force. He underscored that asylum is to be granted based on safety considerations, not poverty.

In his Wednesday tweet, Trump highlighted the case of Luis Bracamontes, a twice-deported immigrant from Mexico sentenced to death in California for killing two police officers.

Two years ago the Federal Bureau of Investigation and DHS released a joint document detailing methods used by Russian intelligence services to influence the 2016 US Presidential election, which was eventually won by Donald Trump.

Mr Trump said he "wouldn't be surprised" if George Soros, the billionaire and prominent Democrat donor, was funding the caravans, echoing unproven claims voiced by far-right commentators.

The migrant caravan set off on 12 October with a plan to trek for more than a month.

The caravan of migrants is still hundreds of miles from the border.

It remained unclear how many migrants would make it; 20 days of scorching heat, constant walking, chills, rain and illness had taken their toll. "We are stopping people at the border".

Other presidents have deployed forces to the border.

Under the Immigration and Nationality Act, migrants claiming asylum are allowed to do so at the border crossings, but also if they cross illegally. This includes reorienting training from that required for the smaller wars the U.S. has fought since the Sept 11 terrorist attacks to a "great power" struggle with Russian Federation and China.

In August 2017, the Trump administration announced it shut down the Central American Minors (Cam) program, which allowed people lawfully in the USA to apply for refugee resettlement or temporary immigration status for their children or other eligible family members.

Earlier this year, Attorney General Jeff Sessions said that victims of gang and domestic violence no longer qualify for asylum.

The offer of buses to Mexico City and the subsequent reversal came after the migrants' request for buses to the capital were ignored by the Mexican government days earlier when they were in Juchitan, Oaxaca state.
