Frustrated Migrants Breach Border at Tijuana

Border Patrol agents stand watch on the U.S. side of the U.S.-Mexico border fence

U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) said Wednesday a group of 55 Central Americans waded across the Colorado River near Yuma and surrendered to agents after walking around vehicle barriers in the area.

One of the children was reported to have sustained a facial injury.

At least one person in Mexico was seen helping adult members of the family group over the top of the wall, and then dropping the children to the waiting family members below, according to the release.

McAleenan has been overseeing the US southern border where more than 7,000 migrants have gathered near Tijuana, Mexico.

Lebanon-Israel border 'quiet' despite operation
Army spokesperson Conricus pointed the finger at Iran for providing the funding and support for Hezbollah's tunnel program. The operation would yield a propaganda victory picture that the organization's leadership could use to demoralize Israel.

The family of six that illegally crossed the border into the United States includes three children, ages 2, 7, and 10, and is from Guatemala, according to CBP. Those individuals were also apprehended and taken into custody "for appropriate processing", he told Fox News' Bill Hemmer.

"On Monday, a number of the asylum seekers who had been waiting in the Mexican border town of Tijuana to make their asylum claims climbed over the border fence, despite being nearly certain to face detention by US authorities on the other side", writes Newsweek. Another three managed to squeeze themselves through a narrow space in the fence. The woman said she would decide her family's next action "in a couple of days".

Frustrated and exhausted after weeks of uncertainty, many migrants have become desperate since getting stuck in squalid camps in the Mexican border city of Tijuana.

Ninety minutes later, she and her family were over the fence. Migrants may have to wait months before their asylum claims are heard, and some have opted to turn and go back home rather than wait in a hostile environment in Mexico.

"A significant number of people tried to illegally cross the border and many of them were detained in the United States".

Last week city authorities bussed them to a concert venue that now acts as a federally run shelter, 14 miles to the south.

Tijuana Mayor Juan Manuel Gastélum said it is costing the city $25,000 per day to feed and house the 7,000 migrants now in the city.

He pointed out that now, some 2,500 migrants remain in a migration camp near the Mexican-US border, not far from the city of Tijuana. "That's not fair. How do you think people from Tijuana feel towards those people who are making problems?"
