Reported that the plaintiff claimed that Trump continued to abuse laws, including constitutional rights, to prevent Central Americans from exercising their legitimate right to seek asylum in the United States.
John Shoreman, a lawyer for these immigrants, argues that Trumps immigration policy violates the Dueprocess clause of the Fifth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution, which states that no one shall be deprived of life, liberty or property without due process of law.
According to CNN, under due process provisions, the government needs to determine whether asylum-seekers have reasonable credible fear that prevents them from returning home to apply for asylum. This credible fear is the core of Trumps arguments against the federal courts methods of border control.
Faced with the large army of Central American immigrants marching towards the US-Mexico border, Trump called their actions invasion and threatened to use all forces to prevent it.
Since then, the U.S. military said October 29 that 800 U.S. troops have been on their way to the Texas border, and 5,200 U.S. troops will travel to the southwest by the end of this week. Trump also said on 31 th that the military personnel deployed on the US Mexico border can reach 15 thousand.
On November 1, Trump said at the White House that undocumented immigrants held in tent cities would be detained until they were deported, according to NBC. In addition, he also plans to refuse the asylum application by illegal immigrants outside the official entry port.
Reported that under current law, the United States allows people to apply for asylum anywhere, regardless of how they enter the United States.

Shorman pointed out that the plaintiffs were seeking asylum, and Trump had no right to use force or to prevent their lawful acts through anyone.
In addition, the Trump government also plans to place immigrant children in tent cities along the US-Mexico border, which Scholman believes is a violation of the Flores Agreement. Under the agreement, the U.S. government should provide toilets, drinking water facilities, appropriate temperature control and ventilation facilities, appropriate supervision and family contacts for immigrant children.
Obviously, President Trump would not consider his tent to be a facility that meets the requirements of the Flores Accord.
Scott Anderson, a researcher at the Brookings Institution, an American think tank, believes that if Trump does detain, expel or prevent asylum seekers, it would also violate international asylum law.
CNBC reported that in addition to Trump and Sessions, the list of indictees included U.S. agencies such as Homeland Security Department and Minister of Homeland Security Kirstjen Nielsen, Immigration and Customs Enforcement Agency and former Acting Director Thomas Homan, and Acting Director of Customs and Border Protection Kevin McAleenan.
