A U.S. District Court Judge has blocked President Trump policy of denying asylum to people who illegally cross the U.S. border between ports of entry. To apply they must go those ports.
Spokesmen for the Department of Homeland Security and the Justice Department denounced the ruling. They stated, “Our asylum system is broken, and it is being abused by tens of millions of meritless claims every year. . . . It is absurd that a set pf advocacy groups can be found to have standing to sue to stop the entire federal government from acting so that illegal aliens can receive a government benefit to which they are not entitled.”

Mexicans in Tijuana continue to protest the arrival of caravan migrants in their city. One stated, “They entered the country violently, they are demanding services. . . . The United States already said they can’t come, so what’s going to happen?” A large number anti-caravan protesters marched through the streets chanting, “Out of Tijuana” and “Mexico has its own problems.” Many sang the Mexican national anthem.
The Guardian, a left-wing U.K. newspaper, labeled the protesters “racists,” even though they and the caravan people are of the same racial background.

Democrats and cheap labor Republicans may push an amnesty for illegal aliens in the upcoming lame-duck session of Congress. One possible strategy may be to offer President Trump funding for a border wall in exchange for signing an amnesty bill for 3.5 million illegal aliens in the DACA category. Immigration reform advocates say this would be a bad deal because a wall alone would do little to stop illegal immigration, while amnesty would be a strong encouragement for more foreigners to come to this country illegally.
Outgoing House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-WI) may lead this effort. The billionaire Koch brothers are spending millions of dollars to support a DACA amnesty during the lame-duck session.

It’s becoming more difficult to fix the location of the (original) caravan.
