Illegal immigrants to be apprehended and would not be released
President Donald Trump has said illegal immigrants trying to enter the United States would now be apprehended at the border and, unlike the current practice, would no longer be released. Announcing a significant change in the current catch-and-release policy for illegal immigrants, Trump said these illegal immigrants would be released only after a US court pronounces its judgement on their asylum application. If negative, they would be deported to their original country. The US will not be releasing them into our country any longer. They will wait for long periods of time. We`re putting up massive cities of tents; the military is helping us incredibly well, Trump said in a major policy speech on illegal immigrants. The policy speech days ahead of the crucial midterm poll comes because of a caravan, estimated to be comprising between 5,000-7,000 people, from three Latin American countries, El Salvador, Honduras and Guatemala. Trump has deployed military at the Southwestern border to stop them. At this very moment, a large well-organised caravan of migrants are marching towards our southern border. Some people call it an invasion. It`s like an invasion. They have violently overrun the Mexican border. You saw that two days ago, he said.
