    By Delphine Schrank

    TIJUANA, Mexico (Reuters) - Forty-nine Central Americans from a migrant caravan that angered President Donald Trump crossed into the United States to seek asylum on Wednesday morning, while dozens more woke to a rainy, cold third day camped outside a U.S. port of entry.

    The 49 migrants, including a first group of mostly women, children and transgender people who had been waiting at the U.S. gate for about 15 hours, were let through by midday, according to the group's organizers, raising the total number of migrants who had crossed to 74.

    Since Monday, border officials have allowed only a trickle at a time to cross the U.S. border, saying that the busy San Ysidro crossing to San Diego is saturated and the rest must wait their turn.


    More than 100 members of the caravan, most from Honduras, Guatemala and El Salvador, have been camped in a square near the entrance of the San Ysidro pedestrian bridge that leads from Mexico to the United States, waiting for their turn to enter the facility.


    At least 28 migrants who made it into the United States on Wednesday had been next on the list. Late Tuesday they had anxiously filed through the walkway to the U.S. gate.


    Two by two, some walked up to a U.S. Customs and Border Protection officer standing in the gate to ask if they might pass through.


    First to try was a man and his small nephew, a football under his arm; then a mother and child; then a women with her grandsons.


    Turned away, they bedded down in a small space pressed up against metal bars separating them from the United States, bundled against the cold under blankets and sheets of tarpaulin tenting.


    No one knew when, or how many of them, would next be allowed through.


    Among them was Reina Isabel Rodriguez, who had fled Honduras with her grandsons.

    Throughout the caravan's 2,000-mile (3,220-km) odyssey from southern Mexico, the possibility that U.S. officials might reject her plea for asylum, and of being separated from the boys for not being their biological parent, had never seemed so real.


    "I'm scared, I'm so scared, I don't want to be sent home," she said, tears streaming down her face. Christopher, 11, watched her with anguish, and Anderson, 7, sat at her feet, his head drooping, a toy robot in his lap.


    Rodriguez was among the many migrants of the caravan who told Reuters they were forced from their homes by Central America's brutal Mara street gangs, along with other life-threatening situations.


    Trump's administration, however, cites a more than tenfold rise in asylum claims in the past seven years, growing numbers of families and children and a shift to more Central Americans as signs that people are fraudulently taking advantage of the system.


    Trump wants to tighten U.S. law to make it harder for people to claim asylum. For now though, despite his orders to keep such migrant caravans out of the country, international and U.S. law obliges the government to listen to people's stories and decide whether they deserve shelter.


    The U.S. Department of Justice said on Monday it launched prosecutions against 11 "suspected" caravan members on charges of crossing the border illegally.


    About half of them are represented by the federal public defender in San Diego, according to the office's chief trial attorney, Shereen Charlick, including three women who had planned to present themselves and their children to make asylum claims at the official border port of entry.


    Long lines at the entry point led the women and their children to try crossing a few miles away, she said, where they were apprehended by immigration authorities. Defense lawyers are trying to track down the location of their children, Charlick said.


    She said some of the mothers apprehended are no longer with their children, and that lawyers in the office are trying to figure out how they were separated.


    Nicole Ramos, an attorney advising caravan members in Mexico, said she did not believe the individuals facing U.S. criminal charges were part of the caravan group.


    "Quite a few people have claimed to be part of the caravan, including a sizable contingent of Guatemalan men who were never part,” Ramos said.

    Congress must repeal these out-dated ridiculous asylum and refugee laws. There can be no asylum on foot, zero. You have to apply from either where you are or in the consulate of another country but you can not walk or drive or float or fly or otherwise show up on a border or port or coastline of the US and request asylum or refugee status.

    mexico was 1st country entered - international law. There are things that could be done to stop this and they are not. Come down real hard on mexico, refuse those that do not abide by the law of 1st country entered.
    A specified number of legally defined refugees who either apply for asylum from inside theU.S. or apply for refugee status from outside the U.S., are admitted annually.
    Am sure the specified amount of asylums granted by law are way surpassed. We are talking hundreds of thousands, maybe a million on backlog. If that doesn't exceed the "specified" number, don't know what will. One third of salvadorans live in US now, how many hondurans, guatamalans, costa ricans? Where are the gov't lawyers & DHS on these 2 breeches of our laws?

    The United States also grants humanitarian protection to asylum seekers who present themselves at U.S. ports of entry or claim asylum from within the country; in FY 2015 (the most recent data available), the United States granted asylum to 26,124 individuals.

    Over 300,000 are waiting 3-5 yrs for an asylum hearing (work permit after 180days) that many do not show up for. Small % are refused. Younger ones sent to school, healthcare, monthly monies. ms-13 probably disappear and do not show up for hearing.

    AFTER 2015 obama allowed in a hundreds of thousands, 30-40k a month. trump has let in 100,000 in @a year. Count in the sneakers & up to a million probably within the last 5yrs.

    Would be interesting to see the actual $$$ figure being paid by USA for UACs, and all other "asylum" seekers as the cases languish for years on end. obama declared $1500 month which is almost 2x the amount an American citizen w/o funds can collect from SSI. Can't find that monthly payment figure either.
