'Everything on table' to block migrants at border

Pentagon to send 'several hundred' troops to US-Mexico border, says official
And the White House is looking at new border security measures, including one plan that would use the same mechanism as Trump's travel ban to block migrants from seeking asylum in the U.S, according to two people familiar with the discussion.
The president, undeterred, has been buoyed by rising approval ratings in recent weeks and eager to cudgel his Democratic rivals on border issues, depicting the migrant caravan moving through Mexico as a menace to USA security.
The caravan still must travel 1,600 kilometers (1,000 miles) to reach the nearest USA border crossing at McAllen, Texas.
It's unclear whether the troops will be armed, though Pentagon officials say they always retain the right to defend themselves.
The Mexican president said on October 26 that migrants wishing to obtain temporary identification documents, jobs, and/or education for their children could do so by registering for asylum in southern Mexico.
Mexican police closed the highway the caravan has traversed in recent days, but said they'd reopen it now that they have made the asylum proposal.

Stoking fears about the caravan and illegal immigration to rally his Republican base, the president has insinuated gang members and "Middle Easterners" are mixed in the group, though he later acknowledged there is no proof of that.
"No, I just think we'd have to work through that". Those who were on the caravan wanted to keep moving forward until a vote was taken and it was decided that they would stop for the day.
A caravan of several thousand undocumented migrants from Central American is now making its way across Mexico and heading towards the United States.
"Our destiny is to get to the border", Orellana said. But it says global law clearly states any person whose life may be in danger has the right to seek asylum and benefit from worldwide protection.
It's still too soon to know exactly where along the vast US-Mexico border the bulk of this caravan will travel.
On Saturday, an arm of the federal government for the first time seemed to be directly helping the migrants advance rather than trying to diminish the caravan.
The wall celebrated Friday replaces shorter, older fencing installed in the 1990s that was now out of date and operationally inadequate, Nielsen said.
The AP reported that the migrants held a vote on the offer near the southern Mexican town of Arriaga, but made a decision to proceed with their journey to the USA border. Most caravan members are Honduran nationals who entered Mexico illegally via Guatemala.
Police have also been ejecting paid migrant passengers off buses, enforcing an obscure road insurance regulation to make it tougher for them to travel that way.
However, it now appears such smaller groups will be picked off by immigration authorities, keeping them from swelling the caravan's ranks.
Mexico's Interior Ministry said that temporary identity numbers have been issued to 111 migrants under the program. The ministry said pregnant women, children and the elderly were among those who had joined the program and were now being attended at shelters.
