Central Americans linked to the seven-thousand strong ‘caravan’ rushed the U.S Border at the Tijuana point of entry on Sunday with the apparent intention of gaining entry to the United States.
A video of the event showed more than a hundred illegal aliens making a coordinated effort to cross the barrier between Mexico and the United States near the San Ysidro point of entry.
The caravan has become a point of irritation for Mexican authorities and communities, transcending the traditional perception of illegal immigration being a problem limited to the United States. The Mayor of Tijuana strongly expressed his disapproval of the arrival of the caravan in his city, going so far as to call for Mexican authorities to immediately deport the illegal aliens.
A group of men attempted to cross the border fence where authorities released tear gas in response.

In response to the attempt to infiltrate the border, U.S Customs and Border Patrol of San Diego announced that San Ysidro, a sector associated with the Tijuana-San Diego border, was temporarily closed off to all pedestrian crossings.
The arrival of the caravan in San Diego and subsequent attempts to cross the border illegally from the migrants show that mass migration from Central America won’t be easily deterred by either the American or Mexican governments. Many pundits deposited that the migrant caravan would simply break up or go away before reaching the U.S border- a prediction that proved to be false today as hundreds of migrants made it clear they would be willing to take drastic measures to enter the United States.
The potential for a new agreement between the United States and Mexico in which asylum seekers would have to wait in Mexico as their case for asylum was processed in the United States could lead to more attempts by illegal migrants to undertake dangerous illegal activities such as today’s mass crossing to enter the country.
Arrests at U.S Southern Border Surged 40% in Month of June
They’re infiltrating the borders again.
Arrest of illegal aliens at the U.S-Mexico border surged by 40% in the month of June, suggesting that human traffickers and border crossers are seeking to infiltrate the borders of the United States once again after a lull during the coronavirus pandemic.
Acting Customs and Border Patrol Chief Mark Morgan called the increase in border crossings concerning. He described a danger to public health from the free movement of aliens across the southern border, citing the rise in crossings as a need for a border wall. “It is imperative that we continue to build the border wall system and enforce CDC policies aimed at protecting the health of Americans.”
Border arrests during the coronavirus pandemic had been the lowest in number in at least a decade, as the pandemic in the United States and Mexico largely placed the illegal movements of people at a halt. The Department of Homeland Security has also implemented special ‘expulsion’ procedures to quickly return illegal aliens to their countries of origin without involving the byzantine and slow-moving immigration court system, which migrants often exploit with dubious claims of persecution in their home countries to claim asylum.
Seizures of hard drugs such as cocaine and fentanyl coming across the border have also increased by a significant percentage, indicating that international drug smuggling organizations are back in business after halting due to coronavirus.
State of emergency ‘expulsion’ powers afforded to CBP allows the agency to return most illegal aliens across the border within two hours.
