Central American asylum seekers get legal aid near U.S. border
Apr 30, 2018, 01:38
In early April, after scathing tweets from the USA president, organizers said the group had become so big that it was unwieldy and would end its journey in Mexico City rather than continuing to the border. Hundreds of immigrants, the remnants of a caravan of Central Americans that began nearly a month ago, set out on the last leg of their journey north in Mexico. Among the marchers are immigration lawyers, who will advise the migrants on the best way to submit asylum applications to US immigration authorities, according to Clergy and Laity United for Economic Justice (CLUE), one of the participating groups. The caravan has triggered vitriol from US conservative media outlets, the White House and many Trump supporters, who see it as a mass effort to illegally cross into the United States. The secretary also said asylum seekers in the caravan should seek protection in the first safe country they reach, including Mexico.
The controversial migrant caravan has arrived at the U.S. -Mexico border.

Homeland Security Kirstjen Nielsen warned this week that any person trying to cross into the USA who makes false claims to immigration authorities will subject to criminal prosecution.
Event organizers say they are marching in the name of migrants who "suffer repression and violence in their own country and for their human right to seek asylum in the country of their choice".
