Frustrated Migrants Breach Border at Tijuana

Lame Duck

Just before dusk, three thin people squeezed through the fence on the beach and were quickly picked up by the U.S. Border Patrol, witnesses said.

One child and his mother got over the fence and ran up the hill behind.

MEXICO CITY, Dec. 3 (UPI) - Thousands of migrants from the Central American caravan in Tijuana, Mexico, have put their names on a waitlist for a preliminary political asylum interview with US authorities - a wait that could be many months.

Earlier, Karen Mayeni, a 29-year-old Honduran, sized up the fence while clinging to her three children, aged six, 11 and 12. Those individuals were also apprehended and taken into custody "for appropriate processing", he told Fox News' Bill Hemmer.

"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 your court hearing, even if they don't have a lawful permission or protection claim".

That section of the wall where the incident took place is part of the 27 miles that has been selected for replacement in 2019, the station reported, citing the CPB.

She was arrested with her 20-year-old husband and 2-year-old son. The woman said she would decide her family's next action "in a couple of days".

Ninety minutes later, she and her family were over the fence.

US inspectors at the main border crossing in San Diego are processing up to about 100 asylum claims day, leaving thousands of migrants waiting in Tijuana.

The inhospitable conditions have increased the apparent frustration of thousands of the caravaners, some of whom arrived at this Mexican border city two weeks ago.

The family attempted to cross illegally because they said they didn't feel safe in Tijuana, where numerous locals are not happy about the thousands of migrants awaiting asylum in their city.

People mainly from Honduras but also from El Salvador and Guatemala formed the caravan to Tijuana, seeking safety in numbers while crossing Mexico to avoid criminals and the fees demanded by the gangs that prey on migrants. "That's not fair. How do you think people from Tijuana feel towards those people who are making problems?"
