'It's Going to Be a Mess': Former ICE Supervisor Says 'There Has to Be Something Done' About Caravan
Former ICE supervisor Jason Piccolo said Sunday that "there has to be something done" as the migrant caravan heads toward the U.S. border.
The caravan was expected to march through the San Ysidro, California, point of entry Sunday afternoon.
"I think it's going to be a mess," Piccolo said Sunday on Fox & Friends. "That's one of the busiest land ports we have in the world, and it's also going to disrupt commercial and legitimate pedestrian traffic as well."
Piccolo suggested a "port court," where immigration judges and asylum officers would be present at points of entry.
He also said that possible cooperation between the Trump administration and the incoming Mexican government is "absolutely significant."
As Fox News reported, the deal would "require all asylum-seekers from south of the border to wait in Mexico while their asylum claims go through court."
"We have to have cooperation with Mexico," Piccolo said.
Piccolo added that the current migrant caravan will be a sign of how future caravans behave going forward.
"We need to stop this traffic before it gets to the United States, i.e. work with Mexico," he said.
