U.S. Officials 'Harden' Border With Mexico To Prepare For Migrant Caravan

U.S. Officials 'Harden' Border With Mexico To Prepare For Migrant Caravan

It is the second group to arrive there since Sunday, when about 80 LGBTQ migrants arrived by bus.

The U.S. Border Patrol sent a news release saying it believes some of the people at the fence are from the caravan that's been traveling through Mexico from Honduras.

Undeterred by a harder USA stance against them, the migrants have said they will continue the journey so that they can claim asylum.

President Donald Trump made the caravan major news in the USA leading up to the election, as he and his supporters in the media warned of an "invasion" at the southern border and urged their base to go out and vote for this reason.

U.S. Customs and Border Protection agents take part in a training exercise at the U.S. -Mexico border, November 5, 2018, in Hidalgo, Texas.

More than 300 migrants had made it to Tijuana by Tuesday, according to the Post, as local officials said they're expecting larger numbers in the coming weeks.

Most are planning to request asylum in the USA based on the fact that they are persecuted in their home countries, although Trump last week moved to restrict asylum for those crossing the border from Mexico, Vox reports: 'The policy itself was developed in just a few weeks, as a slow-moving crisis of resources on the US-Mexico border turned into a hot political issue thanks to President Donald Trump's obsession with the migrant "caravan".

The Rev. Miguel Angel Soto, director of the Casa de Migrante - House of the Migrant - in the Sinaloa capital of Culiacan, said about 2,000 migrants had arrived in that area.

The members were then given a bus ticket by an anonymous group to go the rest of the way to the border. Some 533 migrants had requested a voluntary return to their countries, the government reported.

As with the others, the LGBT faction are hoping to get political asylum either at the San Ysidro or Otay Mesa ports of entry.

U.S. Customs and Border Protection said it closed several vehicle lanes at the San Ysidro and Otay Mesa ports of entry starting Tuesday. "These preparations include training exercises, deploying additional CBP personnel, and partnering with the US military to harden our ports of entry and the border area between those legal crossings into the U.S".
