Smells like bullshit to me - a company trying to get new customers. Not really sure how they have a standing to even file.
https://www.thegatewaypundit.com/2018/11/migrant-caravan-members-file-class-action-lawsuit-against-president-trump/
The lawsuit was filed Thursday in the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia on behalf of the migrants by Nexus Services whose Libre by Nexus company charges migrants a reported $420 a month to wear the company?s ankle bracelet while out on immigration bond. Libre by Nexus is reported to be under investigation by state and federal authorities and is ?accused of preying on detained undocumented immigrants?.
Depends what you consider bullshit.

Damn...I never thought I'd agree with Ammon Bundy (or any Bundy).

Ammon Bundy breaks with Trump on anti-migrant rhetoric: ?It?s all fear-based?
"He has basically called them all criminals and said they're not coming in here. It seems that there's been this group stereotype," Bundy said in a 17-minute clip. "But what about those who have come here for reasons of need? . . . What about the fathers, the mothers, the children, who have come here and are willing to go through the process to apply for asylum so they can come into this country and benefit from not having to be oppressed continually by criminals?"

"It's all fear-based, and frankly it's based upon selfishness - 'I'm going to lose something by them coming in,' " Bundy said of the anti-migrant rhetoric. "I think that's incorrect. But also to base your arguments or your motives or your actions upon fear is a very dangerous thing to do."

"These are people, the majority of them need help," Bundy said. "There is a possibility of danger with some of them, they need to be vetted. And then they need to be brought in here and added to this great, wonderful country."

In order to be vetted we need to know who?s here. How does that happen if these folks jump the border?
They weren't (the vast majority) jumping the border (either now or earlier in the summer), but applying for asylum at the border crossing. Why on earth would you "jump the border" to seek asylum which would automatically void you due to your illegal entry, when all you have to do is walk up to a border agent and state, "I want asylum."

As Bundy said:

"Then, they come to the border, and they have a right ? a legal right ? to apply to come into this country," he argued. "Each one of them should be considered individually."

LOL you think they marched here to claim asylum.

Like you really believe that and aren't able to see through it that it's a purse-strings PR stunt.

Their willingness to jump the border and try to bum rush the border patrol to get past and hopefully mingle with everyone else shows the asylum claim is fucking bollocks.

There was something like 140,000 people who "claimed" asylum recently and didn't show up for court and were ordered deported.

One Hundred and Forty Thousand.

Yeah, they want asylum.

Hondurans at the Gate

Keith Bowden and I had met up in San Diego and headed south to the border. Keith, 61, has lived on it for three decades?in Langtry, Texas, a town of 13. His Tecate Journals is an epic border tale, a chronicle of his canoe adventure down the Rio Grande. I got to know him early this year while I was traveling the U.S.-Mexico border by bicycle for this magazine. When I asked him in November if he wanted to go down and see the caravan first-hand, Keith responded within hours, ?When do we go??

...

It is dark by the time we get back to San Diego. Widespread misinformation and na?vet? have caused 5,000 people to uproot their lives to walk to the U.S. border. The caravan is overwhelmingly made up of young men looking for work, not women and children as we?d been told to expect. A large percentage of the men, as Keith sees it, are just ?punks? he wouldn?t trust to rake the leaves in his yard. ?There is an insolence about them. . . . I think they were worthless in Honduras. They?re going to be worthless in Mexico. They?re going to be worthless wherever they end up.? Even the idea of a ?caravan,? with a beginning and an end, is misleading. Two weeks after it supposedly reached Tijuana, a steady flow of migrants arrives each day without fanfare or press coverage. We met good people among the migrants, people we hope can succeed and who through no fault of their own have attached themselves to a na?ve and dangerous group.

A positive development:

H-1B visa process revamped to favor workers with degrees from U.S. universities
WASHINGTON — The Trump administration unveiled changes to how the coveted visas for high-skilled foreign workers are allocated, starting this April, in an effort to boost the number awarded to people with advanced degrees from U.S. universities.

The change would result in up to 5,340 more immigrants with a master’s degree or higher getting selected for the visa, according to U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services, which published the new rules.

Do as I say, not as I do!

‘My whole town practically lived there’: From Costa Rica to New Jersey, a pipeline of illegal workers for Trump goes back years
The Washington Post spoke with 16 men and women from Costa Rica and other Latin American countries, including six in Santa Teresa de Cajon, who said they were employed at the Trump National Golf Club Bedminster. All of them said they worked for Trump without legal status — and that their managers knew.

The former employees who still live in New Jersey provided pay slips documenting their work at the Bedminster club. They identified friends and relatives in Costa Rica who also were employed at the course. In Costa Rica, The Post located former workers in two regions who provided detailed accounts of their time at the Bedminster property and shared memorabilia they had kept, such as Trump-branded golf tees, as well as photos of themselves at the club.
