Woman, Two Kids Cross into U.S., Stopped by Border Patrol

We've got well over 7,000 migrants there.

Border Patrol agents say they rescued a family whose children were dropped from the top of the 18-foot border fence Monday. "Let them try. Let them try", Luis Cruz, an organizer behind the migrant advocacy group Pueblos Sin Fronteras, told Fox News.

McAleenan said that migrants are also illegally crossing the border in Yuma, Arizona, where video shows parents literally dropping their children over the fence.

The caravan formed in Honduras and gathered thousands of Central American migrants as it made its way north toward the United States.

A second taller fence past a hill kept them from reaching California, creating an area heavily guarded by border patrols. And we've always been training and preparing for moments like this.

Having spent a month trekking towards the United States, numerous migrants are growing frustrated at the long wait that faces them at the border. Another three managed to squeeze themselves through a narrow space in the fence.

Karen Mayeni, a 29-year-old Honduran mother with three children aged between 6 and 12, told Reuters that she was standing by and watching others penetrating the border and "waiting to see what happens".

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

The attempt to cross into the U.S. illegally came just days after the migrants were transferred from one temporary shelter to another after it had become unsanitary.

The migrants in Tijuana are part of several caravans that traveled through Mexico in an effort to enter the United States, citing issues such as widespread violence and dismal job prospects in their home countries.

The AP has said it compiled its data from information from global groups, forensic records, death records, missing persons' reports and data examination from thousands of interviews with asylum seekers.

Despite making it to the border, the roughly 6,000 people there face weeks, if not months, of waiting until their claims can be processed, with USA immigration officials only processing around 100 asylum claims or less each day. That rule was struck down last month by a federal judge.

He told Fox News that Tijuana can not continue providing support for the migrants, saying the city's resources have been depleted. So its direct representation of why we need that improved infrastructure at the border'. "That's not fair. How do you think people from Tijuana feel toward those people who are making problems?"
