Central American migrants from 'caravan' have entered US

Central American migrants from 'caravan' have entered US

A group of women and children passed through to the U.S. side of the border with Mexico on Wednesday, part of the caravan of Central Americans seeking asylum in the United States.

News reports that 53 migrants are now in the process of obtaining legal-resident status at the US-Mexico border crossing outside San Diego, California.

At least 158 Central Americans who traveled in a migrant caravan through Mexico have crossed into the United States this week to seek asylum, organizers said Thursday. The crossing, the nation's busiest, processed about 50 asylum-seekers a day from October through February, suggesting the wait will be short.

In response to the caravan's arrival at the US-Mexico border crossing, the US Justice Department said it was sending 35 additional assistant US attorneys and 18 immigration judges to the border. "People are not going to caravan or otherwise stampede our border", he added, echoing comments made by President Donald Trump.

These people understand our laws and know that if one chooses to seek asylum to enter the United States, our immigration officials have the legal obligation to let them in to process.

Apprehensions of people crossing to the United States illegally from Mexico were at their highest in March since December 2016, before Trump took office.

Residents participate in National Drug Take Back Day
The take back initiative only accepts pills and patches that are expired or unused; no needles or inhalers were taken. If you are not able to make a drop off on April 28, there are permanent collection boxes throughout the state.

At least 28 migrants who made it into the United States on Wednesday had anxiously filed through the walkway to the USA gate the night before.

The San Ysidro crossing is in the U.S. state of California, close to the Mexican city of Tijuana.

Although the caravan migrants are fleeing similar conditions in Central America, their Mexican counterparts have come to resent them because they are attracting much more attention from media and activist groups. For now, though, despite his orders to keep such migrant caravans out of the country, worldwide and US law obliges the government to listen to people's stories and decide whether they deserve shelter.

"The caravan members that are camped out at the border are trying to access a legal process which has existed for decades".

She said the difficulties of scaling the language barrier in her own home will pale in comparison to what she has seen during prior visits to the U.S. -Mexico border and her work in MA helping immigration detainees make phone calls to families.

"Quite a few people have claimed to be part of the caravan, including a sizeable contingent of Guatemalan men who were never part", Ramos said.
