Frustrated Migrants Breach Border at Tijuana

After two adult family members were helped over the wall from the Mexican side by another migrant, the children-ages 2, 7 and 10-were dropped to be caught below.

One of the children was reported to have sustained a facial injury.

"Since that caravan formed in mid-October, we've seen 90,000 people come to our border, 85 percent of those crossing illegally between ports of entry, and all lured by the fact that our legal framework has huge gaps that create the opportunity to stay in the USA while awaiting a court hearing, even if they don't have a lawful permission or protection claim". Once across, entire families raised their hands before border patrol agents who arrived swiftly in white trucks.

Reporters from Reuters watched as migrants breached the border, "risking nearly certain detention by USA authorities but hoping the illegal entry will allow them to apply for asylum", the news service reported.

Ms. Johnson reports, the U.S. Border Patrol's San Diego Sector is reportedly one of the most active in the nation.

Officials said conditions at the Benito Juárez sports complex on the border had become untenable after parts of it had flooded.

Reuters reported that other migrants managed to squeeze through the fence on the beach.

She was followed by her three year old daughter. The woman said she would decide her family's next action "in a couple of days".

Thousands of migrants, mostly Hondurans, have joined caravans in recent weeks in an effort to speed across Mexico to request refuge in the United States.

Some migrants have said they hope to enter the United States legally on the basis of approved asylum claims, but others have said they intend to get across by any means necessary.

He has sent troops to the border and issued an order denying the possibility of asylum to migrants crossing the southern border illegally - but that order has since been halted by a USA federal judge.

Anti-American leftists immediately sued and persuaded a federal judge to strip Trump of his power to decide who can enter the country.

Juan Manuel Gastélum, the mayor of Tijuana, argued recently that the caravan organizer ought to face criminal charges.

A Tijuana Health Department spokesperson told Fox News that a third of the approximately 6,000 migrants now in the city are being treated for illnesses, including three confirmed cases of tuberculosis, four cases of HIV/AIDS and four cases of chickenpox. "That's not fair. How do you think people from Tijuana feel towards those people who are making problems?"
