Yup, (Most likely) Mounting screw cutting wire insulation, or sharp edge of fixture pinching/ cutting insulation; easiest to just unmount all new fixtures and let hang by wires, suspect you will see the problem when unmounting?

I have already removed the New fixtures from the ceiling and let the wires hang without touching and it still continues to blow fuses even when nothing is hooked up and the wires are hanging from the ceiling.

Ok , from my re-read of your posts so far , I'm sure you've gone over all the easy stuff, so we'll have to blast , or at least take the diagnose to the next level.

You're dealing with an issue on one circuit ( fuse ) is the power wire to all the fixtures the same color ?
Can you see the wire leading to every fixture , is the furthest fixture from the fuse the end of the wire?
As you work back towards the fuse are there scotch lock connectors that hook the fixture wire to the main wire ?
Between the wire holes in the ceiling , can you move the main wire back and forth at all ?

I'll check in frequently looking for your answers to these questions , then we'll proceed.
BTW: 12 volt electrical was my specialty for 33 years , we can and will get this figured out.

Maybe pick up a 15 amp circuit breaker to use in diagnosis....save a bunch of fuses.

Wiring in a test light across the fuse holder works ; the short is the test light's ground , when the light goes out you've located the short .The light being on is the circuit load so no problems with the supply wiring overheating .
Even self re-set C/Bs have a service life , and chasing a short can push the C/B past it's .
