Migrants not allowed into US until court approves claims individually, says Donald Trump

  US President Donald Trump has said migrants at the southern border will not be allowed into America until a court approves their claims individually.

Trump’s comments came in the wake of a caravan of people -- mostly from three Latin American countries El Salvador, Guatemala and Honduras -- inching closer to the US-Mexico border with the intention of illegally entering America, a trend that has been going on for the past several decades.

In the last two weeks, approximately 5,000 Central American migrants have arrived in the Mexican border city of Tijuana, just south of California.

“Migrants at the Southern Border will not be allowed into the United States until their claims are individually approved in court,” Trump tweeted Saturday.
