Various Mexico news agencies have released video of caravan migrants arriving at the United States-Mexico border. The first group of migrants to arrive include 7,000 to 10,000 Central Americans.
Live footage from Televisa Tijuana Oficial and FRONTERA shows the migrants from the caravan scaling a border fence that stands between Tijuana, Mexico and San Diego, California.

There were more than 5,000 members of the U.S. military deployed by President Trump to help federal immigration officials deal with the caravan.
So far this year there have been over 400,000 illegal border-crosser get into the United States. In October, there were an estimated 51,000 border-crossers apprehended.
The Central American caravan has admitted they are not going to the U.S. to seek asylum. The migrants are headed to the border in hopes of jobs, crime-free communities and many are illegal aliens who were previously deported and are looking to get back to their illegal life in the United States. None of these are examples of asylum claims.[et_bloom_inline optin_id="optin_5"]
