Caravan migrants filed this lawsuit that Donald Trump is going to hate
The migrants in the caravan escalated their invasion threats.
The danger to America now goes beyond violating our borders.
That’s because migrants in the caravan filed a lawsuit that could spell the end of America.
Thousands of migrants are making their way through Central America.
Donald Trump warned that this represents an invasion.
So he sent the military to the border to stop them from violating America’s borders.
In response, 12 migrants in the caravan filed a lawsuit claiming Trump’s move is unconstitutional.
Fox News reports:
The lawsuit points to Trump’s claim that he will prevent the caravan from entering the U.S. It claims that the president cannot stop asylum-seekers by employing the military — when they have a fair claim. The suit criticized the president’s alleged attempt at stoking “fear and hysteria” by claiming that criminals and gang members have joined the caravan.
The suit cited a Trump interview with Fox News’ Laura Ingraham, where the president laid out plans to build tent cities to house migrants. The suit questioned the functionality of such a project, and asked if these living quarters would qualify under the Flores Agreement of 1997. The agreement protects asylum-seekers’ rights and limits how long minors can be held.
Earlier this summer, a federal judge in California rejected a request by the administration to modify Flores to allow for longer family detention. Administration officials say they have the authority to terminate the agreement, but that is likely to be tested in court.
The White House, Department of Justice and the Department of Homeland Security — which were all named as defendants — did not immediately respond to Fox News’ request for comment.
This lawsuit represents a dangerous escalation.
Many critics believe it represents the first step toward migrants establishing a constitutional right to illegal immigration.
