President Trump has been very clear on this issue, and now so has Mike Pompeo, Secretary of State.
The Migrant Caravan(s) that is headed toward the United States will not be permitted to enter under any circumstances.
Thank you for standing strong Mssrs. Trump and Pompeo!
Here is the Fox News interview here he said it:

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said Thursday that the migrant caravans headed toward the U.S. won't be allowed to enter, a prediction he made after talking to Mexico's foreign secretary.
"I have been in close contact with Mexican Foreign Secretary Videgaray and it has been one week since Secretary Nielsen and I had a constructive meeting with Mexican Foreign Secretary-designate Marcelo Ebrard to discuss the migrant caravans," Pompeo said in a statement issued on Thanksgiving.
"We have affirmed our shared commitment to addressing the current challenge," he said. "The caravans will not be permitted to enter the United States. There are real dangers to the safety and human rights of migrants from those who would prey on them."
Pompeo wasn't specific, but his statement indicates Mexico is willing to help the U.S. make sure members of the caravan are kept in Mexico, and won't be allowed to enter the U.S. and claim asylum.
Trump has battled from the U.S. side of the border to keep thousands of migrants from entering.
Trump has pushed to change the rules to ensure that migrants can't seek asylum if they enter the U.S. outside of a formal point of entry. However, a federal judge in California ruled this week that this policy can't stand.
A report surfaced this week U.S. officials were preparing to deny U.S. entry to migrants unless they can show " reasonable fear" of persecution. But DHS indicated there were no immediate plans to implement this policy.
More from the Daily Mail:
The United States closed off northbound traffic for several hours at the busiest border entry point from Mexico to install new security barriers amid rumors that the caravan was preparing to rush the crossing.
All northbound lanes and one of two pedestrian crossings at San Ysidro, California were shut down for three hours from 3.15am on Monday for 'port hardening', Customs and Border Protection said in a statement.
The installation of movable, wire-topped barriers threatens to complicate life for Mexicans using San Ysidro, where about 110,000 people enter the U.S. every day in 40,000 vehicles.
Tensions have built already as nearly 3,000 migrants from the caravan poured into Tijuana in recent days after more than a month on the road - and with many more months likely ahead of them while they seek asylum in the U.S. The federal government estimates the number of migrants could soon swell to 10,000.
On Sunday night there were clashes between the caravan and residents from the Mexican border city, who shouted 'we don't want you here', and demanded that the 'invaders' from Central America turn around and return to their home countries.
Secretary of Homeland Security Kirstjen Nielsen on Monday said that the crossing was shut when law enforcement learned about the caravan's plans to rush the border.
