Migrants jump US/Mexico border fence at night

2018-12-04 21:47
Migrants in Tijuana, Mexico are illegally entering the United States. At least a dozen migrants climbed over the border fence on Monday, Dec. 3. Border Patrol was close by, and a helicopter was patrolling overhead. But migrants still crossed the border, some even bringing children. Most migrants walked to U.S. Border Patrol officials and handed themselves in. The reason for this could be that applying for asylum at a U.S. border can take months, but if migrants enter illegally and hand themselves in to authorities, their cases may be solved faster. There were some migrants who tried to run and avoid capture. At least 6,000 migrants have travelled to the Mexican border city of Tijuana.
