Trump: Caravan migrants are ‘wasting their time’
President Trump told Fox News on Monday evening that Central American migrants who are approaching the U.S.-Mexico border in caravans are “wasting their time” and vowed, “they are not coming in.”
Trump spoke to “The Ingraham Angle” hours after the Pentagon announced it would deploy some 5,200 troops to the southern border in what the commander of U.S. Northern Command described as an effort to “harden the southern border” by stiffening defenses at and near legal entry points.
“When they are captured, we don’t let them out,” Trump told host Laura Ingraham. “We’re not letting them out … We’re not catching, we’re not releasing … We’re not letting them into this country.”
Trump also said the administration would build “tent cities” to house any asylum-seekers who have joined the caravan.
“We’re going to put tents up all over the place,” the president said. “We’re not going to build structures and spend … hundreds of millions of dollars. We’re going to have tents, they’re going to be very nice and they’re going to wait and if they don’t get asylum, they get out.”

Trump is serious about protecting the border. Thank goodness he won the 2016 election.
