Caravan Migrants File Suit Against Trump for “Violating Their Constitutional Rights”

A dozen migrants who are part of the caravan traveling from Honduras to the U.S. to seek asylum filed a class-action lawsuit Thursday against President Trump, the Department of Homeland Security and others, claiming a violation of their due process under the Fifth Amendment.

Fox News reports twelve Honduran nationals, including six children, are listed as plaintiffs in the lawsuit filed Thursday in the U.S. District Court in Washington, D.C., claiming their rights were being infringed upon, even though they are not U.S. citizens.

The lawsuit points to Trump's claim that he will prevent the caravan from entering the U.S. and criticized him for stoking "fear and hysteria" by claiming that criminals and gang members have joined the caravan.
