More than 100,000 migrants encountered at USA southern border in March

Homeland Security Can't Force Asylum Seekers to Wait in Mexico, Judge Rules

It was most notable in the El Paso sector, where it surged by 1,670%.

A U.S. federal judge on Monday blocked President Donald Trump's policy of returning asylum seekers to Mexico to wait out the processing of their cases, saying the Department of Homeland Security had overstepped its authority. When an inquiry was made as to the intention to continue to deter illegal border crossing with family separation policies, Trump responded, "We're not looking into it".

The administration is allowed to separate children under certain circumstances including the health and welfare of the child and a parent's criminal history; this is why children were separated under Obama. Without his tough border security policies, the president said, murderous migrants "will probably stay at your house", the outlet reported. Oklahoma Republican James Lankford, pointing to the role of smuggling operations in organizing the influx said, "Our laws are incentivizing them", and must be changed. "We have to close up the borders".

The Department of Homeland Security said it arrested or denied entry to more than 103,000 people along the border last month, more than double the March 2018 figure.

Even some of Trump's critics admit that the president has a point about USA asylum laws not being up to the current task: US immigration courts and the asylum system are overwhelmed, with 850,000 cases and 424 judges, making them inefficient and unwieldy. They're gaming the system; they have been for years. "So our military can't act like they would normally act - or like, let's say, another military from another country would act". Another would be to have U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement put more emphasis on tracking down illegal immigrants already ordered deported.

"Once you don't have it, that's why you see many more people coming".

U.S. officers arrested or denied entry to over 103,000 people along the border with Mexico in March, a 35 percent increase over the prior month and more than twice as many as the same period past year, according to data released by U.S. Customs and Border Protection on Tuesday.

BJP manifesto a bunch of lies: Congress
People walk past the Election Commission of India office building in New Delhi , India March 11, 2019. Voters will elect 543 of 545 MPs to India's lower house of parliament, the Lok Sabha.

Caring for the families is hindering U.S. Customs and Border Protection's ability to perform all of its duties, officials said.

The court cases themselves have been marred by technical issues.

It's likely that Monday's injunction is only the first volley in what will become another lengthy legal battle over a Trump administration plan to reduce legal routes to immigration-all happening while human beings fleeing gang-violence in Central America hang in the balance.

Bur critics continued to lay the blame for the ongoing problem at the feet of the Trump administration, saying the White House does not want to address the root of the problem - turmoil in the Central American countries from which most of the recent migrants come. "We can't take you anymore", he said last week to asylum seekers.

Trump, for his part, insisted he was not "cleaning house" at the agency despite a number of staff changes. "And that's what he's trying to do".

"Who the hell can live like this?" he asked, according to The Dallas Morning News.

Asylum claims hit a record high of 150,000 in 1995, according to the report. Later, Congress mandated that foreigners seek asylum within one year of arriving in the United States.
