'CARAVAN' DENIED: Migrants 'Remain DEFIANT' After Border Officials REFUSE Entry

800x800.jpg

Rodulfo Figueroa, the top Mexican immigration official in Baja California state, told caravan organizers to send in an initial group of 20 migrants to see if USA border inspectors would entertain their request for asylum.

Supporters of the asylum seekers rally at the west end of the U.S. -Mexico border.

About 200 people in a caravan of Central American asylum seekers waited on the Mexican border with San Diego for a second straight day on Monday to turn themselves in to USA border inspectors, who said the nation's busiest crossing facility did not have enough space to accommodate them.

Moments before the migrants arrived, U.S. Customs and Border Protection officials announced that none of the migrants from the caravan would be processed for asylum because the agency had reached capacity for the day for migrants seeking asylum. They traveled thousands of miles from Central America with hope for a better life in America. Ten of the individuals face a misdemeanor charge for allegedly entering the USA illegally.

Jose Cazares, 31, said he faced death threats in Yoro, Honduras, after a gang member suspected of killing the mother of his children learned his son reported the crime to police. All of the cases have been reviewed by lawyers.

"Instead, they are trying to push them back into the Mexican arena without an individual assessment of the persecution these people claim they are fleeing", Griffey said.

What does it mean to seek asylum? We are the only Country in the World so naive!

Several of the migrants were seen scaling and straddling the border wall, and they are reportedly very determined to enter the US after being denied thus far, sparking some rumblings of a possible "border showdown".

FACT: Most asylum seekers are actually denied, according to Syracuse University's Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse. Asylum seekers are screened and have their backgrounds checked and, depending on how they entered the country, may be detained pending a hearing. If they pass an asylum officer's initial screening, they may be detained or released into the USA with ankle monitors.

Is this caravan something new?

Organizers of the caravan expressed surprise that border inspectors were not ready to receive the group. Last year, only four applications from this caravan were granted admission. In early April, after scathing tweets from the USA president, organizers said the group had become so big that it was unwieldy and would end its journey in Mexico City rather than continuing to the border.

KAHN: Undeterred, the large group in two parallel lines marched to the border crossing, chanting, yes, we can, yes, we can.

Why is President Donald Trump so upset about it?

"WALL." During a Saturday rally in Michigan, Trump again referenced his wish for stricter border security.

Earlier this month, Trump called for more security staffers to be deployed by the National Guard in Arizona, New Mexico and California to guard the border. Asylum seekers are typically issued work permits while they wait for their cases to be adjudicated. In these administrative courts, immigrants don't have a right to an attorney.

"Are you watching that mess with the caravan coming up?" Members of the group say there's about 20 people waiting at the door for their turn, and the rest of the group waiting in Mexico.
