Trump says US ‘will not be a migrant camp’ after child immigrants separated from parents at border

Trump says US ‘will not be a migrant camp’ after child immigrants separated from parents at borderPresident Donald Trump has defended his administration’s “no-tolerance” immigration policy that has led to the separation of immigrant families seeking shelter in the United States, saying that America “will not be a migrant camp” to house the world’s immigrants. “The United States will not be a migrant camp and it will not be a refugee holding facility,” Mr Trump said Monday during a meeting with his space council in the White House. The president’s defiant comments come amid increased scrutiny of a recent policy change announced by Attorney General Jeff Sessions, which instructs American immigration forces to prosecute undocumented immigrants arriving at the US border illegally to be slapped with criminal charges — even in instances where those arriving immigrants claim credible fear as a qualifier as they seek asylum from dangerous and violent circumstances in their own country.

Five dead after Texas police chase car full of immigrants 'suspected of smuggling'

Five dead after Texas police chase car full of immigrants 'suspected of smuggling'Five people have been killed and several others injured after an SUV suspected of smuggling illegal immigrants crashed while fleeing from Border Patrol agents in South Texas, authorities said. The driver of the car, who was transporting 13 other people, lost control while travelling at around 100 mph. The vehicle overturned on Texas Highway 85 and most of the occupants were thrown out of the vehicle, Dimmit County Sheriff Marion Boyd said. “From what we can tell the vehicle ran off the road and caught gravel and then tried to re-correct,” Mr Boyd said, adding that “caused the vehicle to turn over several times”.
