UPDATE Migrant Caravan Gathers On USMexico Border For Final Push

Bogged down by logistical problems, large numbers of children and fears about people getting sick, the caravan was always meant to draw attention to the plight of migrants and was never equipped to march all the way to the U.S. border. (AP Photo/Felix Marquez)Migrant shelters in Tijuana’s Zona Norte neighborhood, home to the many of the city’s seedy bars and bordellos, were full. That forced organizers to look elsewhere for temporary housing, said Leonard Olsen of Pueblos Sin Fronteras, a group leading the effort.Migrants who stayed overnight at a shelter in Mexicali were tired from the long journey and nervous about the possibility of being detained in the U.S. but also knowledgeable about their rights to seek protection from persecution in their home countries, Olsen said. Many Central American asylum seekers say they face death threats by criminal gangs in their homelands.“This is a moment that will change their lives,” Olsen said in Mexicali, as he waited for three buses to arrive as Mexican federal police officers watched nearby.Caravans have been a fairly common tactic for advocacy groups to bring attention to asylum-seekers and the latest group pales in size compared to previous border surges, but it gained huge visibility after President Donald Trump unleashed strong criticism from the moment it began March 25 in the Mexican city of Tapachula, near the Guatemala border.The caravan drew as many as 1,000 people as it crossed Mexico as Trump and top aides portrayed them as a significant threat and evidence of a dysfunctional border. On Monday, Trump cited the caravan as additional justification for the border wall he wants to build, even though the asylum-seekers plan to turn themselves in to border inspectors.Homeland Security Kirstjen Nielsen said late Wednesday that any person trying to cross into the U.S. who makes false claims to immigration authorities will subject to criminal prosecution. She said prosecution was also possible for any people who might assist or coach immigrants to make false claims in bids to enter the U.S.The #RefugeeCaravan is now 600 people strong, with mostly mothers and children making their way to the U.S. to seek asylum.

The secretary also said asylum seekers in the caravan should seek protection in the first safe country they reach, including Mexico.The U.S. government is marshaling resources to ensure that cases are promptly decided, Nielsen said. U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions has said he may assign additional immigration judges to handle cases involving members of the caravan.As Sunday’s showdown at the busy Tijuana-San Diego border crossing neared, Amnesty International hoisted a billboard promoting the right to asylum in the U.S. on a truck in Tijuana that drove around the city.APCentral American migrants stand in line to start their documentation with a Mexican immigration official during the Migrant Stations of the Cross caravan as the group makes a stop at a sports center in Matias Romero, Oaxaca state, Mexico, late Monday, April 2, 2018.

He still plans to attempt on Sunday.“God is just and powerful,” he said, lingering outside his tent. “A miracle is going to touch the hearts of immigration agents and the president.”The Villatoros fled a town near the Mexican border for reasons Ignacio declined to discuss because he said he feared for his family’s safety.They hope to join relatives in Los Angeles, where he said his children could learn English, go to school, play in parks and buy toys — luxuries that are out of reach to them in Guatemala.VIDEO: Around 100 Central American migrants from a caravan that infuriated President Trump have arrived at the Mexico-US border, where many plan to seek asylum in the US, organisers say pic.twitter.com/eDuWzJeRw0— AFP news agency (@AFP) April 26, 2018 Statement from the head of DHS on the caravan reaching the border.
