  • The Latest Nearly 200 to seek asylum at US-Mexico border

But for all the noise, it remains to be seen whether the White House's actions will have much of an impact on the roughly 600 Central Americans who plan to present asylum claims.

Viridiana Vidal, a spokeswoman for Pueblo Sin Fronteras, the group behind the so-called migrant "caravan", said she expected approximately 100 to 200 people to attempt to cross from Mexico to the the San Ysidro border crossing, where they planned to request asylum.

Before the group arrived, US Customs and Border Protection officials said the port had already reached full capacity.

This week, hundreds of migrants arrived at the U.S-Mexico border after traveling thousands of miles.

Most of the defendants allegedly entered the US illegally, which is a misdemeanor. Four of the people in that earlier group, she says, have won asylum so far.

The CIA's World Factbook also claims that El Salvador has one of the world's highest homicide rates and pervasive criminal hangs. All of the cases have been reviewed by lawyers.

Others left flowers outside the medical centre, with messages such as: We fell in love with a little boy we never knew. All who have been touched by the story of this little boy's heroic struggle for life will feel this loss deeply.

KAHN: "Because they threatened me and also my sister", she says, "and my cousin, mother and stepfather", she adds.

What does it mean to seek asylum?

"We come up again on September 28th and if we don't get border security we will have no choice, we will close down the country because we need border security". They're advised, they're told what to say, they step across the border. Asylum seekers must have a well-founded fear of persecution due to their race, religion, nationality, political opinion or membership in a particular "social group", a broad category that has included domestic violence victims and others.

Asylum seekers are screened and have their backgrounds checked and, depending on how they entered the country, may be detained pending a hearing. The murder rate in the 2016, the most recent year for which data is available, was about 5 per 100,000 residents, though several big cities in the US have much higher homicide rates.

Is this caravan something new? Last year, only four applications from this caravan were granted admission. At that point, the caravan included more than 1,000 people, including many from El Salvador, Honduras, and Guatemala.

Attention on their flight and plight has reached a fever pitch, with President Donald Trump painting the caravan as a direct threat to the U.S.

"We have to have borders".

They called the effort by President Trump to deploy the National Guard as a way to "further militarize the US southern border".

Already this April, Trump called on more manpower to be deployed by the National Guard in Arizona, New Mexico and California to secure the border.

Sessions had his own response to the caravan, issuing a statement Monday saying he'd "directed our U.S. Attorneys at the border to take whatever immediate action to ensure that we have sufficient prosecutors available".

Under US asylum law, people have the right to seek asylum, a protection increasingly sought by Guatemalans, Salvadorans and Hondurans, according to the Washington Office on Latin America. TRAC found huge disparities between judges, even in the same immigration court.
