Exhausted of waiting for asylum, migrants from caravan breach US border

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. 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.

As McAleenan told Fox News, numerous migrants were "lured" to the United States because they were promised entry because of weak laws - even though many of them do not qualify for amnesty.

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.

McAleenan also noted that criminals leading these caravans give the migrants misleading information about the muddy asylum process in the US, meaning they profit off migrant families because of the weak immigration laws. The money was already approved in last year's spending bill, officials said. "The further we are from the border, the less options we have to do our paperwork".


"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". "It's a huge challenge that we need to work with Congress to address.We've got criminal organizations profiting off of vulnerable families, charging $5000-$7000 per person". "That a 2.5 billion dollar business of exploitation". Most scholars on the left and right share the view that it would take a constitutional amendment to deny automatic citizenship to children born in the U.S.to parents who are in the country illegally. The old rusty border wall has proven to be no match for modern day drug smugglers and human traffickers says Jeroslyn Johnson of hollywoodunlocked.com.

U.S. Border Patrol agents watch unauthorized migrants cross into San Ysidro, Calif., on Sunday.

A border camera captured images of a family of six illegal immigrants surmounting the wall in Arizona, with the aid of another man. And his supporters - that is 80 to 90 percent of Republican voters - expect Congress to act to fulfill that pledge.

Officials said the migrants were not forced to move, but food and medical services at the original camp would no longer be available. The toll-free Capitol Switchboard is (1-866-220-0044) call TODAY.
