452 Caravan Migrants Broke Into U.S. & Are Likely To Stay Indefinitely, According Homeland Security

The lion’s share of so-called ‘caravan migrants’ are said to have broken into the U.S.
Homeland Security officials say up to 450 illegal aliens from the group have arrived in the U.S.
Officials say at least 200 intruders will be released under the ‘catch-and-release’ program. Some 1,500 migrants traveled with the caravan from Central America through Mexico. 330 of them are said to have entered the U.S. through border checkpoints, while 122 illegals jumped the border.
Officials said they can only press charges against several dozen of the illegals due to weak immigration laws.
“Entering this country illegally is a crime,” said Thomas Homan, Acting Director for Immigration and Customs Enforcement. “If there are no consequences for sneaking past the border, overstaying a visa, skipping immigration court, or even committing crimes while in the country illegally, there’s gonna be no integrity in the entire system.”

Immigration officials say over 95-percent of illegal arrivals had their asylum claims accepted for processing, which allows them to stay in the U.S. for years or disappear in illegal-alien communities.
The officials urged Congress to “build a policy wall,” enabling a proper enforcement of current immigration law.
