President Donald Trump says he’s planning to build ‘tent cities’ to house migrants in the caravan heading towards the U.S. border, where they can wait for their application for asylum to be processed.

Trump also told Fox News host Laura Ingraham on Monday night that the group from Central America are wasting their time and insisted they will not be let in when they arrive.

He said that if the migrants, who are still hundreds of miles away, do make it to the border and apply for asylum, as they’re legally entitled, the U.S. plans to ‘hold them until such time as their trial takes place.’

‘Where? We have the facilities?’ Ingraham asked.

‘We’re going to put tents up all over the place. We’re not going to build structures and spend all of these, you know, hundreds of millions of dollars – we’re going to have tents.’

‘They’re (the asylum seekers) going to be very nice… and they’re going to wait,’ he added. ‘And if they don’t get asylum, they get out.’

Under current protocol, migrants who clear an initial screening are often released into the country they are applying for asylum in until their cases are decided in immigration court, which can take several years.

Previous administrations have released the migrants pending their court dates but Trump suggested migrants would apply for asylum and then disappear into the country, never to be heard from again.

The administration’s plan to set up tent cities will be similar to those already erected in Tornillo, Texas which was built to house immigrant children separated from their parents after they were caught entering the U.S. under the administration’s zero tolerance policy.
