Thousands of migrants who traveled via a caravan members want to seek asylum in the USA but may have to wait months because the US government only processes about 100 of those cases a day at the San Ysidro border crossing in San Diego.

U.S. Border Patrol helicopters flew overhead, while U.S. agents held vigil on foot beyond the wire fence in California.

Members of Pueblo Sin Fronteras (Nation Without Borders), an immigration rights group known for organizing several migrant caravans in Mexico and Central America, as well as other unidentified organizers, should be prosecuted, Tijuana Mayor Juan Manuel Gastelum told Fox News. They were accused of illegally entering the country, which is a federal crime.

"It was Border Patrol agents' effort and valued partnership with the Honduran Consulate in Los Angeles that helped us identify a risky convicted felon moving amongst the migrant caravan", said San Diego Sector Chief Patrol Agent Rodney Scott.

They also caught a 30-year-old Honduran man with MS-13 tattoos and later identified him as Wuilson Lazo-Ramos, who had a felony conviction for weapons misconduct in Maricopa County.

Images and video of asylum seekers, including families with small children, running from the tear gas prompted widespread outrage against the Trump administration, with the Mexican government itself calling for an investigation into the use of nonlethal weapons. Authorities on the USA side of the border used tear gas to disperse the migrants.
