Tijuana Mayor Says Migrant Caravan Organisers Should Face Criminal Charges

Tijuana Mayor Says Migrant Caravan Organisers Should Face Criminal Charges

Around 11 p.m., agents arrested three people crossing the border illegally one mile east of the San Ysidro Port of Entry.

When Customs and Border Patrol officials arrested 46-year-old Miguel Angel Ramirez after he illegally entered the USA near San Diego, he was only four months out of a Honduran prison after serving 10 years for homicide and three years for robbery.

A statement from federal prosecutors did not say whether either man was believed to have reached the border in the large caravan of asylum-hopeful migrants from Central America that arrived earlier this month in Tijuana.

During an immigration interview, Ramirez reportedly told the San Diego Sector Border Patrol agents that he was part of the migrant caravan originating in Honduras-making stops in Guatemala and Mexico before his capture in southern California. Three other men, including a Mexican and Guatemalan national and Arizona man, were also arrested. One of the two still unidentified males was previously deported from the USA and could face federal charges for illegal re-entry.

Administration officials have portrayed the caravan as a lawless, violent mob, saying there are some 600 people in the group who have a criminal history.

Later that day, another Border Patrol agent was assaulted while trying to arrest an illegal immigrant. "DHS will not tolerate illegal or forcible entry into our country", Houlton said in the statement.

After calling the migrant caravan a "humanitarian crisis", Mayor Juan Manuel Gastélum said he can not continue to fund the shelters for migrants without federal support.

Numerous migrants who made the trek to the East Tijuana property, some 7 miles (11 km) from the border, appeared thankful to be out of the muck even if most will sleep on thin mattresses on a cold, hard floor.

"Consistent with the president's direction to do all within our authority to secure USA borders, I am seeking your assistance and ask you to prioritize efforts to help us prevent illegal entry into the United States", Nielsen wrote.

"In those six hours that the border was closed, we lost approximately 129 million pesos (US$1.4 million)", according to Gastelum.

"I'm not going to break public services to solve this problem", Gastélum told Fox News.

He pointed out that Tijuana residents, many of whom have taken to the streets to protest the caravan's presence, are suffering financially.

"There are people who only think about themselves, they don't think about the mothers with kids, they think about nothing".
