Family Border Crossings Surge To 'Crisis' Levels: White House

Washington (AFP) - Families crossing the US-Mexico border illegally surged to a "crisis" level in September as Trump administration policies failed to deter the inflow of migrants from Central America, officials said Tuesday.

The US Border Patrol apprehended 16,658 people who arrived in the country as families last month, some 900 more than August and nearly 12,000 more than September one year ago.

The surge was reported as President Donald Trump has called a caravan of some 7,000 migrants planning to traverse Mexico to the southern US border a "national emergency" and threatened to close the border completely to halt illegal immigration.

US Customs and Border Protection said for the full fiscal year that ended September 30, a total of 521,090 people without immigration documents have been apprehended or blocked at the Mexico border.

That was up by more than 105,000 from the previous year, Trump's first year in office when he declared that his tough crackdown on immigration was working.

Out of that, people arriving as families, many requesting asylum in the United States from the violence in their home countries, and as unaccompanied minors, has jumped as a percent of the total, to around 40 percent.

Speaking under condition of anonymity, a senior administration official called it a border crisis "that is unprecedented in our history."

The official said laws meant to protect the rights and safety of border crossers are also making it impossible to return people to their home countries and forcing the government to process their asylum claims and release them into the United States.

"The cost on society is enormous," the official said.

"We are apprehending these aliens. If we could return them, there would be no crisis."












第二波「移民大篷車」 向美邊界挺進



Northbound migrant group doubles in size, enters Guatemala

By Jorge Cabrera

AGUA CALIENTE, Guatemala (Reuters) - Up to 3,000 migrants crossed from Honduras into Guatemala on Monday on a trek northward, after a standoff with police in riot gear and warnings from Washington that migrants should not try to enter the United States illegally.

The crowd more than doubled in size from Saturday, when some 1,300 people set off from northern Honduras in what has been dubbed “March of the Migrant,” an organizer said. The migrants plan to seek refugee status in Mexico or pass through to the United States.

Reuters could not independently verify the number of participants, but images showed a group carrying backpacks and clogging roads near the border, some waving the Honduran flag.

The impoverished nations of Central America, from which thousands of migrants have fled in recent years, are under mounting pressure from U.S. President Donald Trump’s administration to do more to curb mass migration.

“We are seriously concerned about the caravan of migrants traveling north from Honduras, with false promises of entering the United States by those who seek to exploit their compatriots,” the U.S. Embassy in Honduras said in a statement on Sunday evening.

U.S. Vice President Mike Pence last week called on presidents in the region to tackle the issue, saying Washington would be willing to help with economic development and investment in return.

Guatemala said in a statement on Sunday that it did not promote or endorse “irregular migration.”

Rows of Guatemalan police in black uniforms, some wearing helmets and shields, initially blocked migrants from reaching a customs booth, Reuters images showed. It was not clear how long the standoff lasted, but the group was ultimately able to cross, said march organizer Bartolo Fuentes, a former Honduran lawmaker.

A police official on site said all Central Americans could pass freely through the region as long as they complied with migration control.

“We’re going to drop in on Donald Trump. He has to take us in,” said Andrea Fernandez, 24, who left Honduras with a newborn baby, a 5-year-old daughter and 7-year-old son because she said she could not find work and feared for their safety.

Mexico’s migration institute said in a statement on Monday that march participants would need to follow immigration rules to enter the country, without specifying the criteria.

“The law does not provide for any permission to enter the country without meeting the requirements, and then go on to a third country,” the government agency said.
