United States warns of arrests as migrant caravan reaches border

Immigrants pause at a rest stop after traveling by freight train on their journey toward the U.S.-Mexico border

The timing of the migrants arrival could compromise a flurry of talks this week to renegotiate the North American Free Trade Agreement.

A statement by Kirstjen Nielsen, Secretary of Homeland Security, said US officials are monitoring the situation and will enforce the law.

U.S. lawyer to hold clinics to explain what the Central Americans can expect during their applications for asylum.

Nielsen urged the migrants not to carry on into the USA, saying that they should seek protection in the first country they entered since leaving their homes, including in Mexico.

While many rested in tents after a month-long journey across Mexico, others wandered up to the border to contemplate the next stage in their journey.

"The wall doesn't look that tall", said a 15-year-old girl from Honduras.

On 24 April, Amnesty International denounced apparent efforts by United States and Mexican authorities to prevent caravan members from exercising their right to seek asylum at the San Ysidro POE. Local migrant aid groups said it was the biggest single group they had seen arrive together as they scrambled to find places in ten shelters.


Erika Guevara Rosas, Americas director for Amnesty International, said seeking asylum is not a crime in the United States or elsewhere.

"Thanks to god we're here", added a 34-year old worker from Guatemala -accompanied by two children.

The effort was organized by Pueblos Sin Fronteras, translated from Spanish as People Without Borders, which is not the same group as the Washington-based non-profit that provides computer classes to global residents of the District of Columbia.

Tensions flared after a Mexican immigration official suggested they go in smaller groups to the border station.

Nielsen said in a statement that the Department of Homeland Security is watching the caravan's movements and stressed that they will not be exempted from USA laws.

It was unclear if concerns about immigration could affect the talks.

The immigrants' arrival comes the day after a third federal judge dealt a blow to the Trump administration's efforts to end protections for undocumented immigrants brought to the USA as children.
