    The problem is Trump and most on the right are ignorant of, or have contempt for, the legal process.

    Your link:

    "That statement (Jeff Session) was countered by Amnesty International Tuesday morning, which pointed out that 'seeking asylum is not a crime in the USA or anywhere.'

    "'The efforts of US officials to tarnish asylum seekers as criminals are cynical fabrications that ring hollow,' the statement said, attributing the comment to Erika Guevara Rosas, the group's Americas director.

    "Officials of Pueblos Sin Fronteras, the volunteer group that organized the caravan, have said throughout the journey that migrants have the right to ask the US for asylum and that the United States must grant them the opportunity to do so.

    "Tristan Call, an organizer with Pueblos Sin Fronteras, said the US is trying to punish people who have a right to ask for asylum."

    The asylum seekers are fleeing violence in their home countries that has a strong connection to US foreign policy; they are political refugees who have a legal right to be here.

    That appears to be exactly what these migrants are doing:

    Learn About the Asylum Application Process


    "Every year people come to the United States seeking protection because they have suffered persecution or fear that they will suffer persecution due to:

    • Race
    • Religion
    • Nationality
    • Membership in a particular social group
    • Political opinion
    "If you are eligible for asylum you may be permitted to remain in the United States. To apply for Asylum, file a Form I-589, Application for Asylum and for Withholding of Removal, within one year of your arrival to the United States. There is no fee to apply for asylum."

    From your link:

    "A group of about 130 women and children arrived Tuesday afternoon in Mexicali, on the Mexican side of the US border, after an overnight bus trip from Hermosillo, in Mexico's Sonora state. They were expected to be followed by as many as 500 other migrants late Tuesday and Wednesday."






    Yep. It looks like a yuuuge problem.
