Migrant Caravan Denigrated by President Trump Arrives in California

Members of migrant caravan gather at border

About 50 people, many of them women and children, camped overnight on blankets and backpacks in Tijuana outside the Mexican entrance to the border crossing.

"Depending upon port circumstances at the time of arrival, those individuals may need to wait in Mexico as CBP officers work to process those already within our facilities", McAleenan said in a statement.

In tweets, President Donald Trump framed the groups of migrants as a threat and a "disgrace". Border patrol officials have not processed any of the travelers, ABC News reports, saying that the port of entry has "reached capacity".

But when space opens and "resources become available", officers "will be able to take additional individuals into the port for processing".

The asylum-seekers in the caravan, most of whom are reportedly from Honduras, say they are fleeing violence in their home countries. Migrants have a right to apply for asylum, whether or not they get detained in the process.

How will the U.S. respond to the caravan of asylum seekers demanding entry at border?

Similar migrant caravans have ventured toward the United States border for the last several years.

"There are people who think I just woke up and said, 'Oh, I want to just go to the United States.' It's not that easy", she said.

A huge Stars and Stripes flag can be seen, and also the twinkling lights of houses on USA soil, beyond the San Ysidro Crossing point, which divides Tijuana from San Diego.

The 6'0 229 pound back said he is ready to "deliver the blow" with the Broncos . "We feel very fortunate", Elway said. I have to play hide-and-go-seek with you guys all the time when it comes down to who we're going to pick.

Jenni, another member of the "March Without Borders" who arrived past year in the USA from El Salvador as part of another caravan told EFE that the Customs and Border Protection Office (CBP) officers tried to sign her voluntary departure, but she chose to stay and fight for her case.

Life in Honduras: As the second-poorest country in Central America, Honduras "suffers from extraordinarily unequal distribution of income", and rampant underemployment, the CIA World Factbook says.

Caravan organizers say Trump has made it harder for migrants to seek asylum by threatening to detain foreigners seeking the protection, and in some cases turning immigrants back at the border or jailing them for months.

"We have already started", he said.

"Despite the Democrat inspired laws on Sanctuary Cities and the Border being so bad and one sided, I have instructed the Secretary of Homeland Security not to let these large Caravans of people into our Country".

Rodney S. Scott, chief patrol agent at the U.S. Customs and Border Protection, condemned members of the Central American caravan and accused them of having "illegally entered the United States without immigration documents by climbing over the dilapidated scrap metal border fence on either side of the San Ysidro Port of Entry". While Mexico was once mainly a crossing point to the United States for migrants, the country is now bearing the brunt of the refugee crisis itself.

Under US asylum law, people have the right to seek asylum, a protection increasingly sought by Guatemalans, Salvadorans and Hondurans, according to the Washington Office on Latin America. "Especially for him", she said, shuddering as she glanced at the infant in her arms and tightened a thick blanket around him to ward off the cold. Five couples are married on the beach during a rally with members of the immigrant caravan.

"WALL." During a Saturday rally in Michigan, Trump again referenced his wish for stricter border security.

As per reports the Catch and Release policy officially ended in 2006 under President George W. Bush and United States Department of Homeland Security though certain critics had mentioned that it is still followed as part of various u.s. policies.
