Migrants Breach the U.S. Border Fence in a Bid for Asylum

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

MEXICO CITY, Dec. 3 (UPI) - Thousands of migrants from the Central American caravan in Tijuana, Mexico, have put their names on a waitlist for a preliminary political asylum interview with USA authorities - a wait that could be many months.

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 six people are all part of the same family from Guatemala and included three children: a 2-year-old, a 7-year-old and a 10-year-old.

Applying for asylum at a U.S. land border can take months, so if migrants enter illegally and present themselves to authorities, their cases could be heard more quickly.

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

It was not clear whether the group would face charges and deportation or if they had requested asylum in the United States. Another three managed to squeeze themselves through a narrow space in the fence.

"We're just observing, waiting to see what happens", Mayeni said.

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 woman said she would decide her family's next action "in a couple of days".

One child suffered a facial injury.

A young man sits on top of a building at a new migrant shelter on Sunday in an area known as El Barretal, in Tijuana, Mexico.

Over 700 miles to the west, in Tijuana, dozens of caravan migrants climbed over the fence to be detained by Border Patrol on the California side. They turned around and waved to those still on the Mexican side.

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.

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

"Since that caravan formed in mid-October, we've seen 90,000 people come to our border, 85 percent of those crossing illegally between ports of entry, and all lured by the fact that our legal framework has huge gaps that create the opportunity to stay in the USA while awaiting a court hearing, even if they don't have a lawful permission or protection claim".
