  • Migrant caravan relocated to new shelter farther from the border

The city government of Tijuana announced Saturday that it has closed down a migrant shelter at a sports complex close to the US border that once held about 6,000 Central Americans who hope to get into the U.S.

Migrant children appear to be dropping over the border wall.

Watch:"We've got a challenging and still potentially volatile situation in Tiajuana".

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.

Having spent a month trekking towards the United States, numerous migrants are growing frustrated at the long wait that faces them at the border.

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

Ninety minutes later, she and her family were over the fence. "That was in the Yuma Sector in Arizona, also interdicted and apprehended by Border Patrol agents".




According to Reuters, later into the night more migrants followed suit, and many had children with them.

Last week the mayor sent a deputy to Mexico City to petition the United Nations Human Rights Ombudsman and High Commissioner for Refugees to assist the migrants.

On a typical day before the caravan arrived in Tijuana, U.S. border patrol agents in the San Diego area detained about 120 or so people trying to cross the border illegally from Mexico.

Media captionWhy are there so many people at U.S. border? "They were brought to the border by a group that told them they would be able to cross easily into the U.S.to present asylum claims, and that's not the case". "We've got over 7,000 migrants there. That's a $2.5 billion business of exploitation and we've got to stop it".

"They previously were residing at the Benito Juarez Sports Complex near the San Ysidro U.S. -Mexico Port of Entry until this past weekend, when that camp was shut down over 'bad sanitary conditions'".

According to Reuters, numerous "frustrated and exhausted" immigrants quickly surrendered to the U.S. Border Patrol, hoping that once in the U.S. Last year, more than 26,000 illegal immigrants were arrested in addition to almost 11,000 pounds of marijuana and 3,000 pounds of cocaine that were seized.

He has sent troops to the border and issued an order denying the possibility of asylum to migrants crossing the southern border illegally - but that order has since been halted by a U.S. federal judge.
