As the most reliable and balanced news aggregation service on the internet, DML News offers the following information published by WASHINGTONEXAMINER.COM:

About 50 people in the 1,500-person caravan of Central Americans traveling to the U.S. to seek asylum have made the 2,000-mile trip to the border city of Tijuana, Mexico, according to multiple reports.

The crew of mostly Honduran and Guatemalan people embarked in March on a journey north to the United States. The group traveled together for safety reasons and to avoid being robbed in dangerous parts of Mexico.

The group that arrived at the northern Mexico city on Wednesday have begun filing for asylum, which is technically a request for refugee status.

The article goes on to state the following:

“Since yesterday, some began to cross into the United States to turn themselves in from Tijuana and request asylum. We understand more … will do the same,” Juventud 2000 Director Jose Maria Garcia, who is helping caravan members in their journey, told Reuters.

Those who have traveled as family units or unaccompanied minors will have priority for admittance because the Trafficking Victims Protection Reauthorization Act allows those who show up at a U.S. port of entry and are from a noncontiguous country to be admitted while he or she waits on an immigration hearing. The large majority of those immigration hearings take up to two years, and most do not show up.

Newsweek reported Friday that the caravan organizers are complaining that some of the illegal migrants are being “turned away” by border officials, and are calling the move illegal.

“There have already been cases of people being illegally turned away by border officials when trying to request asylum at the U.S. border,” a spokesperson for Pueblo Sin Fronteras, an immigrant rights group that organized the event, told Newsweek. 

“Others have been processed,” the spokesperson said, adding that the organization planned to “document any abuses in [Department of Homeland Security] custody.”

This is not the first group of caravan members who have made it to the U.S. border. On Monday afternoon, April 9, border agents came upon a group of 61 illegal aliens who crossed the border near the San Luis Port of Entry in southern Arizona. The illegal border crossers consisted of a single Mexican national, 59 Guatemalans, and one Salvadoran who claimed to be an unaccompanied minor, but was discovered to actually be an adult who was a member of the violent MS-13 gang.

The caravan of illegal alien Central Americans arrived in Mexico City last week, then hopped aboard a freight train on Sunday, riding atop cars loaded with scrap metal, to continue their journey toward the U.S. border. Reporters noted that authorities in Mexico watched the migrants illegally climb atop the train, but did nothing to stop them.

BuzzFeed reporter Adolfo Flores has been traveling with the caravan of Central American migrants since they they first started out on their journey. After the caravan arrived in Mexico City, Flores noted many are trying to decide whether they will stay in Mexico or go on to the United States.

Flores shared the story of Maria, who he said was diagnosed with breast cancer and needs surgery. “She wants to have it done in the US where she’ll have the support of family but is concerned about being detained. She’s also considering staying in Mexico but doesn’t have any family here.”

Flores didn’t provide any plan Maria might have on who will pay for her surgery and medical care in the U.S.

The Central American migrants traveling through Mexico claim their own countries are unfit to live in, and have declared they will go to the U.S. border to seek asylum, but on their journey, they’ve proudly waved the flags from their country, and sang their national anthem.

CNN correspondent Leyla Santiago admitted that the migrants were treated well and made to feel welcome in Mexico City. She said some are choosing to stay in Mexico, while others are determined to continue northward to the U.S. border, where they will seek asylum.

In their coverage of the caravan’s journey, CNN has repeatedly referred to the migrants as people who “President Trump calls dangerous” and has pointed out they are just women, children, families and workers. They’re not dangerous, CNN said.

CNN has reasoned that this is just an annual pilgrimage that has been happening for the past five years. In a CNN news broadcast, they tell the story of Lillan, a woman fleeing from El Salvador because of the gang violence and lack of work. She left her two children behind, hoping to get a job in the U.S. so she can send money back to her children, “to help them escape poverty and violence.”
