President Trump is preparing an executive order to ban the Central American migrants currently traveling in a caravan from entering the United States, sources familiar with the plan have revealed.

Trump’s plan would also bloke the migrants – who are still nearly a month away from reach the border – from being able to seek asylum, according to Politico.

News of the executive action broke just hours after Trump took to Twitter to tell the caravan to ‘turn around’ because border patrol agents would block them.

Many of the thousands who are in the caravan are women and young children seeking refuge from violence in Honduras.

A DHS official that had been briefed on the potential executive order said it could be abandoned or adjusted before the administration makes it official.

Sources say the executive order – much like Trump’s Muslim ban – would rely on the law that allows a president to suspend entry of foreigners seen as ‘detrimental to the interests of the United States’.

But while the Supreme Court eventually upheld a version of Trump’s travel ban, the DHS official believes the caravan will be seen in a different light.

‘I think the courts respected a thorough national security review that was undertaken,’ they told Politico.

‘Here you’ve got something that appears to be completely political and focused on a caravan of women and children.’

Many have accused Trump of pushing his dialogue about the caravan in recent weeks as a way to rile up his base before the upcoming midterm elections.

The caravan still remains 1,000 miles south of the border and it is estimated it would take migrants another 25 days just to reach the border. The midterm elections are 12 days away.
