  • Migrant caravan relocated to new shelter farther from the border

The border crossing - which Tijuana residents use to reach jobs and shopping on the US side and USA tourists use to head south - was closed briefly last weekend after some migrants tried to rush across.

The suspect who helped the children over the border wall to the group did not cross into the U.S., CPB said, according to Yuma's KYMA-TV.

Dramatic images from the Mexican border town of Tijuana showed migrants from the Central American caravan, including many small children crawl underneath the fence and into the United States yesterday.

Earlier, Karen Mayeni, a 29-year-old Honduran, sized up the fence while clinging to her three children, aged six, 11 and 12.

The Trump administration's fierce crackdown on the "migrant caravan" has caused the 6,000-strong group to stall in Tijuana, Mexico; with many choosing to return home rather than wait months for their asylum claims to be processed by American authorities.

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.

Some migrants have said they hope to enter the United States legally on the basis of approved asylum claims, but others have said they intend to get across by any means necessary.

Ninety minutes later, she and her family were over the fence.

People mainly from Honduras but also from El Salvador and Guatemala formed the caravan to Tijuana, seeking safety in numbers while crossing Mexico to avoid criminals and the fees demanded by the gangs that prey on migrants.

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

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.

USA officials have restricted applications through the Chaparral gate in Tijuana to between 40 and 100 per day. US officials said agents had been wounded or hit by migrants throwing stones.

Those that made it across the fence in Tijuana still had to scramble up a hill and contend with a more forbidding wall to reach California. "Stand on my head!" one migrant said, egging his companion on.

The child that suffered a facial injury was treated by border patrol agents, according to CBP.
