Pueblo Sin Fronteras, the group supporting the caravan, has said it hopes to hold meetings in the Mexican capital with federal lawmakers and authorities as well as representatives of the incoming government that takes office December 1 to discuss migrants' rights and the caravan's future. CBP Assistant Commissioner of Public Affairs Andrew Meehan said in a news conference Monday afternoon that there are approximately 3,500 people in one group, which is now at the Chiapas-Oaxaca border in southern Mexico.

On Monday, he tweeted without providing evidence, "Many Gang Members and some very bad people are mixed into the Caravan heading to our Southern Border".

"This is an invasion of our Country and our Military is waiting for you!"

Meanwhile, the Mexican government has been doing its best to get as numerous Central American migrants to stay in Mexico and apply for asylum there.

The Southern Poverty Law Centre called the deployment an act of "defiance" that would not make the U.S. safer.

A Pentagon spokesman stressed that no final decisions had been made about the deployment of active duty forces to the border.

Planning documents show that several military police companies will head to Lackland and Camp Pendleton in California, while two medical companies will deploy to Lackland and Davis-Montham.

They will bring border personnel "exactly where they need to be, regardless of the conditions", O'Shaughnessy said.

Overall, Embiid has a 3-1 lifetime record against Drummond. "He didn't feel as comfortable as we would've wanted", Brown said. Reggie Jackson supplied 23 points, Ish Smith tossed in 21 off the bench and Reggie Bullock added 17 for Detroit.

Migrants are entitled under both USA and global law to apply for asylum. Spokeswoman Sarah Huckabee Sanders said Monday she was unaware of any upcoming planned speeches on immigration but she'd keep the public posted.

In addition, McAleenan noted that, on a daily basis, nearly 1,900 individuals are apprehended attempting to cross the southern border illegally or coming to a port of entry without documentation. "We will continue to adjust the number and inform you of those", General O'Shaughnessy said. The National Guard is often used by states to help with border security.

Like the Guardsmen already serving along the border, the active duty troops will not be permitted to carry out law enforcement duties since that is not permitted by federal law. Their role - helping to protect South-Western borders and border officers.

Republican lawmakers and other Trump supporters have applauded the deployment.

The first, larger caravan of about 4,000 mainly Honduran migrants passed through Tapachula about 10 days ago and was setting up camp in the Oaxaca state city of Juchitan, which was devastated by an quake in September 2017.

Trump told reporters at the White House on Wednesday that "we'll go up to anywhere between 10 and 15,000 military personnel on top of Border Patrol, ICE and everybody else at the border". On Tuesday, he stepped up his dire warnings, calling the band of migrants fleeing poverty and violence in Central America an "invasion". "Sending thousands of troops to turn them away as if they are foreign invaders reflects the profound paranoia, fear, and hate fueling this administration's immigration policies". The president will take steps to do that. The government regularly reports the number of migrants who have applied for refugee status or agreed for assisted bus trips back to their home countries.

"We're already facing a border security and humanitarian crisis", he said, adding that an average of 1,900 people have been crossing the border without authorization each day in recent weeks.
