    14 Caravan members admitted at San Ysidro Port of Entry

    Fourteen Central American caravan members admitted at San Ysidro Port of Entry

    Sandra Dibble and Gustavo Solis Contact Reporters

    Six more Central Americans traveling with the Pueblo Sin Fronteras caravan passed into the San Ysidro Port of Entry Tuesday morning, bringing to 14 the total caravan members into U.S. custody since Sunday afternoon, caravan leaders said.

    Those admitted today were two mothers each with two children. All are from Honduras, organizers said.


    U.S. Customs and Border Protection, which manages the port did not confirm those numbers. But the agency said Monday that it was resuming processing those without entry documents as capacity allows.


    About 140 asylum seekers from the caravan set up an encampment directly in front of the U.S. border crossing known as PedWest. Tuesday morning, one of the caravan’s organizers, Alex Mensing, reminded the group of Central Americans that they have a legal right to seek asylum.


    Jose Eduardo Faro, a member of the caravan who traveled to Tijuana with his wife and two children from El Salvador, said they were willing to wait as long as it takes to claim asylum.


    “We will stay here until we get an answer,” he said. “We aren’t demanding the U.S. grant us asylum. The law says we can ask for asylum and we just want an opportunity.”


    Monday night, eight caravan members were the first to be admitted into the San Ysidro Port of Entry since their arrival Sunday afternoon, according to leaders of the Pueblo Sin Fronteras Caravan that brought them to the Tijuana-San Diego border.


    Word of their passage came as U.S. Customs and Border Protection announced that it was again accepting asylum seekers and others without documents after a hiatus of close to 27 hours.


    Just as members of the Pueblo Sin Fronteras Caravan had prepared to present themselves at the border to ask for asylum, CBP had announced on Sunday afternoon that its facilities were full and that it did not have the capacity to accept them.


    On Monday morning, some 20 members of the caravan, most of them women with small children, spread out on blankets at the door to the port’s PedWest entrance, watching as northbound pedestrian crossers filed past at a rapid clip, heading to jobs, school and shopping excursions.


    “I feel that God will help me cross, and will touch the president’s heart,” said José Cristobal Amaya, 16, among the small group waiting at the PedWest door.


    The Honduran teenager, who was traveling alone, said he was fleeing gang members he calls Los Mareros who beat his father and threatened to kill his entire family.

    The eight caravan members to go through were from this group, with mothers and children the first to be selected, according to a spokesman for Pueblo Sin Fronteras: three mothers, four children, and an 18-year-old were in the initial group.

    The spokesman said that they will remain detained at the port until they receive a “credible fear” interview, an initial screening that launches the asylum process.


    Meanwhile a larger group of caravan members continued waiting, spread farther from the PedWest entrance in an open area outside El Chaparral, Mexico’s federal port that connects to San Ysidro.


    Attorneys who have been assisting them have said that up to 200 participants had been preparing to apply for asylum.


    President Donald Trump has made it clear that he does not look kindly on the caravan. He has tweeted that he instructed the Secretary of Homeland Security “to not let these large caravans of people into our country.”


    On Monday night the U.S. Department of Justice announced it had filed charges against 11 suspected caravan members, accusing them of entering the country illegally.


    The suspects were arrested by members of the Border Patrol in areas west of the San Ysidro Port of Entry.


    “When respect for the rule of law diminishes, so too does our ability to protect our great nation, its borders, and its citizens,” said Attorney General Jeff Sessions in a statement.


    But caravan leaders said Monday they had no knowledge that any of its members were arrested.


    Outside the port on Monday, caravan participants said they were determined to apply for asylum in the United States and were prepared to wait.


    The caravan has come under much scrutiny as it crossed Mexico to the U.S. border, swelling to as many as 1,700 members, according to organizers, with the majority from Honduras.


    The caravan left Tapachula on the Guatemalan border on March 25th, with those most determined to seek asylum in the United States now gathered in Tijuana.


    “They can’t leave them sitting indefinitely, you’ve got to think there’s a plan there,” said Andrew Selee, president of the Migration Policy Institute in Washington, D.C.

    “Because the United States is a country of laws, they will have to process them, even if it goes slowly.”


    Selee said the delay also shows a need to come up with a new approach.


    “Our border policies were set up for a time when it was mostly economic migrants coming across,” Selee said.

    As growing numbers of asylum applicants show up at ports of entry, he said. “we haven’t re-thought our border policies to deal with these new flows.”


    Caravan members said they were prepared to wait it out.


    “After days on a train, after so much struggle, this is the easiest part,” said Irineo Mujica, a U.S. citizen who heads Pueblo Sin Fronteras, which also operates two migrant shelters in the state of Sonora.


    But while members of the caravan wait, so are other asylum seekers, and they have been growing increasingly upset, complaining that caravan members were trying to enter ahead of people who have been waiting for more than a week.


    “The ones from the caravan are trying to break the line,” said René García, who said he is from the state of Michoacan, and had been waiting for eight days for a chance to walk up to the port and present himself for asylum. Others in the group include Hondurans, Venezuelans and Haitians, he said

    Go "touch" your President's heart.

    You are not welcome here!

    We give your country billions...now go home and demand a better life on your soil.

    We cannot take in One Billion people on the planet that want to dump themselves ON our backs!

    Now load up those women and children and send them back to detention on their soil.

    No welfare, no food stamps, no lawyer, no taxpayer money.

    The "organizers" are pushing the women with kids to the head of the line so they'll get the most bang for their buck. They know these women with children will probably be released within the United States quickly because the BP doesn't have the detainment facilities for these children. So what happens is these mothers and their children will be released while awaiting adjudication of their cases. These asylum seeker women and children will disappear to join their illegal husband or other illegal alien family members somewhere in our interior.
