Caravan Migrants Sue Trump

The caravan is suing President Trump in a bizarre turn. Alleging their Fifth Amendment rights are being violated, 12 members of the thousands-strong caravan of aspiring illegal immigrants have filed suit claiming the Trump administration is in the wrong for trying to prevent them from seeking asylum in the United States. Despite the fact that none of them, by definition, are American citizens, the lawsuit claims that preventing their entry into the U.S. deprives them of life, liberty, and property. Or something.

—QUOTABLE: “The legal problem with Trump’s plan to stop caravan persons from entering this country is that Plaintiffs are seeking asylum, and Trump simply cannot stop them from legally doing so by using military, or anyone.” -Illegal alien lawsuit

—QUOTABLE: “…[N]o person… shall be compelled in any criminal case to be a witness against himself, nor be deprived of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law.” -The Fifth Amendment

—QUOTABLE: “They should apply to come into our country. We want them to come into our country,” Trump said. “No nation can allow itself to be overwhelmed by uncontrolled masses of people rushing their border.” -Trump
