Kevin McAleenan, the Customs and Border Protection commissioner, said in a written statement that the agency had "reached capacity at the San Ysidro port of entry for CBP officers to be able to bring additional persons traveling without appropriate entry documentation into the port of entry for processing".

He also threatened to revoke North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) which provides financial aid to Canada and Mexico via the U.S. in retaliation to movement of the migrants across its border.

The U.S.travel advisory on Honduras says: "Violent crime, such as homicide and robbery, is common".

Caravan organizers say Trump has made it harder for migrants to seek asylum by threatening to detain foreigners seeking the protection, and in some cases turning immigrants back at the border or jailing them for months.

"We can build a base in Iraq in under a week".

While terming the immigrants as "caravans" Trump warned to use the Nuclear option as part of which the US Senate is allowed to override a rule in spite of no majority vote. "I don't believe it", Nicole Ramos, a lawyer who provides legal assistance to caravan members, told a news conference.

Approximately 1,500 people left the Mexico southern border city of Tapachula on March 25, although that number has dwindled to an estimated several hundred.

Sessions had his own response to the caravan, issuing a statement Monday saying he'd "directed our U.S. Attorneys at the border to take whatever immediate action to ensure that we have sufficient prosecutors available". She said they can't live there anymore.

Young children - and in one case, a pregnant woman - were detected among people trying to enter the US illegally through "a dark, treacherous canyon that is notorious for human and drug smuggling", CBP Chief Patrol Agent Rodney Scott said, adding that it was "unconscionable" that children were being smuggled into the country in what he referred to as risky conditions.

Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen said asylum claims will be resolved "efficiently and expeditiously". "If you assist or coach an individual in making a false immigration claim, you have broken the law and will be referred for prosecution".

The majority of asylum seekers from Central America ends up being denied refuge in the US.

MYTH: Most people who seek asylum in the USA receive it. The murder rate in the U.S.in 2016, the most recent year for which data is available, was about 5 per 100,000 residents, though several big cities in the USA have much higher homicide rates.

Maria de Los Angeles, 17, said she felt confident after speaking with an attorney that USA authorities would release her while her case moves through the courts because she was traveling alone with her 1-year-old son. For asylum-seekers whose cases were decided in the San Francisco immigration court over the past six years, for example, the odds of rejection ranged from 9.4% to 97.1% depending on the judge.
