Caravan migrants vow to get to US-Mexico border as fencing goes up
The migrants have been walking for three weeks and the most gruelling days demand treks of more than 100 miles (160km).

They reached a gymnasium in Cordoba where they held a vote to cover the 178 miles (285km) to Mexico City on Monday by walking and hitching rides.

Trump's border deployments could cost $220 million as Pentagon sees no threat from migrant caravan
WASHINGTON — President Donald Trump's move to deploy troops to the U.S.-Mexico border is shaping up to cost $220 million, according to two U.S. defense officials who were not authorized to speak publicly.
...
Critics have called the deployment a political stunt. Defense Secretary James Mattis, however, downplayed that criticism last week. "The support that we provide to the secretary for homeland security is practical support based on the request from the commissioner of customs and border police. We don't do stunts in this department," he said Wednesday.

A Pentagon risk assessment found that the caravan did not pose a threat to the United States, according to a person with direct knowledge of U.S. intelligence.
A huh...

So, confidential "sources" for both claims....$220 Million, staff, support, logistics and
material and labor for barbed wire to cover the (non walled) boarder...I could think of worse things to spend money on.

Example:
Mueller "probe" into Russian collusion...

Update: Trump limits asylum, says migrants must "have merit'
WASHINGTON (AP) — President Donald Trump on Friday invoked extraordinary national security powers to deny asylum to migrants who enter the country illegally, tightening the border as caravans of Central Americans slowly approach the United States.

Trump is using the same powers he used to push through a version of the travel ban that was upheld by the Supreme Court. The proclamation puts into place regulations adopted Thursday that circumvent laws stating that anyone is eligible for asylum no matter how he or she enters the country.

"We need people in our country but they have to come in legally and they have to have merit," Trump said Friday as he departed for Paris.
What?
Accept people who have skills that we really need????
Is he trying to turn this country into a meritocracy?

The dems will have standing to file suit: these folks represent critically needed future votes.
