Dozens of Caravan Migrants Scale Border Wall and Cross into U.S.

Restaurants hotels and medical offices in Baja California take a hit amid migrant crisis

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 United States federal judge.

Customs and Border Protection said Wednesday that agents arrested the woman November 26 after she entered the country illegally near Imperial Beach, California, across the border from Tijuana, Mexico.

The move came a week after hundreds of migrants rushed the U.S. border, prompting U.S. Customs and Border Protection and Border Patrol officers to fire tear gas and smoke grenades at the crowd, which included many women and children.

This breach follows a similar incident when a group of around 500 migrants attempted to storm the USA border near Tijuana on 2 December and reportedly threw projectiles at the U.S. border patrol, prompting American authorities to use tear gas and rubber bullets against the asylum seekers.

Customs and Border Protection officials said that on the morning of December 3 security camera operators observed a group of six illegal aliens, including two small children, making their way over the border wall.

Tents are set up in a new shelter on Sunday in an area known as El Barretal in Tijuana, Mexico.

US authorities say they can process up to 100 asylum seekers a day.

Fed hints at higher rates despite Trump attack
Equity investors leapt to the same conclusion on Powell's speech, with the S&P 500 ending the day up more than 2 percent. Powell and other Fed officials have since sounded a bit more cautious, nodding to a slowdown in Europe, Japan and China.


Thousands of migrants have been waiting for a chance to apply for asylum.

The inhospitable conditions have increased the apparent frustration of thousands of the caravaners, some of whom arrived at this Mexican border city two weeks ago.

Some border wall construction is being done, such as at San Diego, two miles of wall in Calexico, California and 20 miles of border wall in Santa Teresa, New Mexico, and where it has been completed illegal aliens are not being dropped over the fence.

The group, dubbed "migrant caravan", has been camping out in a sports complex turned into a temporary shelter by the local authorities. 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.

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

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.

Human rights groups have question the legality of the president's proclamation. But they also warned they would stop offering food and medical services at the Benito Juarez sports complex. 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.
