15600 immigrants apprehended in Arizona's border sectors in March

A Northern California federal judge Monday blocked another Trump administration immigration policy, one that required some asylum-seekers to wait in Mexico for immigration court hearings in the United States.

"Strictly on the basis of the volume and how much the situation there has deteriorated, I would expect us to do more", Shanahan said.

According to reports, the proposal will likely call for more resources at the border for those in need of medical attention, counseling for children as well as refugee processing. The perceived cruelty of the policies regarding immigrants at the border has not been good politically for Donald Trump and his administration. "They were built by President Obama's administration".

Apprehensions by border agents were on track to top 100,000 in March, the highest level in a decade, according to the US Customs and Border Protection.

But immigration advocates say most of the migrants are fleeing violence and poverty in Central America, and seeking a better life in the United States. Without his tough border security policies, the president said, murderous migrants "will probably stay at your house", the outlet reported.

The policy meant adults were taken to court for criminal proceedings and their children were separated and sent into the care of the Health and Human Services Department.

Immigration court records show the asylum denial rate rose from 21 percent in 2016, the previous year of the Obama administration, to almost 47 percent as of January.

This would give migrant parents awaiting immigration hearings a choice: agree for their child to be held separately, or be detained together, possibly indefinitely, until their court date. He thinks the separations work to deter migrants from coming."He just wants to separate families", said a senior administration official.Trump repeatedly denied that was the case on Tuesday. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) have released more than 120,000 into the interior so far this year. Oklahoma Republican James Lankford, pointing to the role of smuggling operations in organizing the influx said, "Our laws are incentivizing them", and must be changed. "I was the one that changed it", he said.

With the number of undocumented migrants crossing the border to enter the U.S. at its highest level in more than a decade, the president is desperately seeking to fulfil his signature campaign pledge to reduce unauthorized immigration into the US.

Sen. Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, made both a public and private plea to the White House not to dismiss career homeland security officials.

"The Border Patrol is facing unprecedented humanitarian and border security crisis". The White House did not immediately respond to questions seeking clarity on the commander in chief's comments.

U.S. District Judge Richard Seeborg issued a preliminary injunction against the policy after a group of asylum seekers and organizations represented by the ACLU argued that "remain in Mexico" violates American asylum law and regulatory requirements, as well as worldwide treaty obligations.

Despite the low success rate, many potential asylum seekers spend months or years living in the US while awaiting their court date.
