"They have helped stop a lot of the transportation means of these individuals in these caravans, forcing them walking. They are not angels", he said in Fort Myers, referring to migrants from poor Central American countries moving towards the United States in hopes of a better life or to escape violence.

"We don't do stunts in this department", he said.

The troop numbers have been changing at a dizzying pace, with Trump drawing a hard line on immigration in the lead-up to the midterm elections.

He will host 11 rallies across eight states in the next six days. But critics argue Trump has manufactured a crisis to drive Republican voters to the polls.

Democrats are threatening to light a fire under Trump's feet if they win even partial control, raising the spectre of ever more brutal Washington politics. The main group of about 4,000 migrants - down from its estimated peak of more than 7,000 - remains in southern Mexico, hundreds of miles from the border. But I will tell you this: "Anybody throwing stones, rocks, like they did to Mexico and the Mexican military, Mexican police - where they badly hurt police and soldiers of Mexico - we will consider that a firearm, because there is not much difference if you get hit in the face with a rock", Trump said to reporters. We will not allow our generosity to be abused by those who would break our laws, defy our rules, violate our borders, break into our country illegally.

President Donald Trump is expected to announce plans to deny asylum to migrants who try to enter the U.S. illegally between ports of entry as part of his latest election season response to two caravans of migrants heading toward the U.S. -Mexico border.

"Many times the asylum applicants are specifically those types of people who have been forced to flee and therefore they will not be able to avail themselves of the normal processes in their home countries", Hoffman tells TIME.

The president has revelled in his anti-immigrant rhetoric for months. Some 5,200 troops are already making their way down to the border to provide logistical and other support to United States border agents.

"People are saying he's too tough".

President Trump is delivering last-minute remarks on immigration from the White House's Roosevelt Room, CBS News has confirmed through a White House official.

The number of such immigrants had reached a height of 12.2 million in 2007, representing about 4 percent of the USA population, before declining due in part to a weakening US economy.

On Tuesday, Trump made a politically tricky visit to Pittsburgh, accompanied by his wife Melania, Orthodox Jewish son-in-law Jared Kushner and daughter Ivanka.

While it's true the underlying laws were the same, the Trump administration mandated anyone caught crossing the border illegally was to be criminally prosecuted.

Trump did not back down Wednesday from his proposal to upend the very concept of American citizenship.

Of the caravan he said: 'Nobody's coming in.

Certainly Trump was back in fighting mood on Wednesday, tweeting that he and Melania "were treated very nicely yesterday in Pittsburgh". A smaller group of 2,000 people managed to cross the Suchiate River separating Mexico from Guatemala the day before. "The Fake News stories were just the opposite-Disgraceful!"
