A U.S. Border Patrol agent speaks to women and children who crossed illegally into San Ysidro, Calif., on Sunday.
Ms. Pavlich reports this week in Yuma, Arizona, a number of individuals were caught dropping children over the border fence.
Two small migrant children appeared to be dropped from the Mexico side of the border into the Arizona side by a suspected smuggler, according to surveillance footage provided by the U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) on Monday.
All members of the group were taken into custody.
"Since that caravan formed in mid-October, we've seen 90,000 people come to our border, 85 percent of those crossing illegally between ports of entry, and all lured by the fact that our legal framework has huge gaps that create the opportunity to stay in the USA while awaiting a court hearing, even if they don't have a lawful permission or protection claim".
That section of the wall where the incident took place is part of the 27 miles that has been selected for replacement in 2019, the station reported, citing the CPB. Another three managed to squeeze themselves through a narrow space in the fence. "We'll figure out what to do in a couple of days".
On a typical day before the caravan arrived in Tijuana, U.S. border patrol agents in the San Diego area detained about 120 or so people trying to cross the border illegally from Mexico.
Ninety minutes later, she and her family were over the fence. That rule was struck down last month by a federal judge.
The attempt to cross into the U.S. illegally came just days after the migrants were transferred from one temporary shelter to another after it had become unsanitary.
Plans for illegal crossings were curbed by the Trump administration's decision to send troops to protect the border and impose a new policy that requires every migrant seeking asylum to remain in Mexico, where their cases will be heard.
A number of the migrants ran to try to escape capture, but most walked slowly to hand themselves in to U.S. Border Patrol officials waiting under floodlights.
He told Fox News that Tijuana can not continue providing support for the migrants, saying the city's resources have been depleted. "That's not fair. How do you think people from Tijuana feel toward those people who are making problems?"
