Migrants Breach the U.S. Border Fence in a Bid for Asylum

Migrant caravan relocated to new shelter farther from the border

Scores of pregnant women travelled with the caravan through Mexico before reaching the US border.

With growing frustration at the length of the asylum process, migrants climb over the border fence that divides the United States and Mexico on Sunday near Las Playas de Tijuana, Mexico.

"On Monday, a number of the asylum seekers who had been waiting in the Mexican border town of Tijuana to make their asylum claims climbed over the border fence, despite being nearly certain to face detention by USA authorities on the other side", writes Newsweek.

The attempt to cross into the United States illegally came just days after the migrants were transferred from one temporary shelter to another after it had become unsanitary. Agents said that the individual dropping the children from the Mexican side, who is also reportedly a family member, fled the scene, but was later apprehended as well.

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.

The group, dubbed "migrant caravan", has been camping out in a sports complex turned into a temporary shelter by the local authorities.

"We've got criminal organizations profiting off of vulnerable families charging 5,000 to 7,000 per person", said McAleenan. "That's a $2.5 billion business of exploitation and we've got to stop it".

Homeland Security said the section of wall the children were dropped from is a legacy fence already slated for replacement.

That advanced warning gave people critical time to take cover and may have saved lives. Its path was intermittent and mostly caused damage to trees and to some structures.


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

Melanie Hernandez, a migrant at the new shelter, said the desperate situation created by the rain has "improved the humanitarian response" offered by Mexican and USA non-governmental organizations, many of whom are offering clothes, medical care and some legal services. And his supporters - that is 80 to 90 percent of Republican voters - expect Congress to act to fulfill that pledge.

They told the migrants food and medical services would no longer be provided there. This is the last opportunity Republicans have to fund the Wall before radical Far-Left Democrats takeover the House and impose gridlock on President Trump's conservative agenda.
