Showdown Looms as Migrant Caravans Swell at Mexico Border

US warns of arrests as migrant caravan reaches border

Migrant caravan seeking asylum reaches US border

About 20 volunteer USA lawyers gave legal workshops Friday just across the border in Mexico to Central American asylum seekers who traveled in a "caravan" that has been harshly criticized by President Donald Trump . But remnants of the caravan traveled on toward the US border, The Associated Press reports, and busloads began arriving in Tijuana late Tuesday.

"I see it as something really sad, because I don't understand how a child this age can make things hard for him", said Hernandez, who is two months pregnant.

"Thanks to god we're here", said 34-year-old Aide Hernandez from Guatemala who had four children in tow. Ties between the United States and Mexico have been strained since Trump won the presidency in 2016 on the back of a campaign heavy on anti-Mexican rhetoric and promises to build a wall on the two countries' border and make Mexico pay for it. They are expected to seek asylum in the United States.

Honduran Angel Caceres dipped a tortilla into a plate of refried beans and rice, his first meal in two days.

Donald Trump is again under tension because #migrants have arrived at the border in Tijuana seeking asylum. He preferred to spend what money he'd saved since leaving Honduras to buy food for his five-year-old son, Jeffrey, coughing with a dirty nose beside him. Hundreds of immigrants, the remnants of a caravan of Central Americans that began nearly a month ago, set out on the last leg of their journey north in Mexico.

"Despite the Democrat inspired laws on Sanctuary Cities and the Border being so bad and one sided, I have instructed the Secretary of Homeland Security not to let these large Caravans of people into our Country", Trump tweeted. Nielsen said those making false immigration claims or helping others to do so would also be prosecuted. "They're people who have suffered", Mujica said.

Migrants who spoke at length with Reuters at various points during their month-long journey were short on polish and knowledge of their legal rights, but at least 20 recounted detailed stories of facing death threats.

Ministers from Mexico, Canada and United States also met in the U.S. capital as they rushed to seal a quick deal on updating NAFTA.

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. Several hundred immigrants, mostly women and children, are staying in temporary tents set up for them in a Tijuana shelter.

A scrawny girl crawled onto the lap of her mother, Ana Wuillams, crying that she was cold.

Lawyers have told her she has a solid case for protection in the United States, yet Mr. Trump's statements have rattled her.

But she was uncertain whether she and her daughter should stick with the group or try to cross the border alone and find their way to Houston where she had a friend ready to offer shelter. "I don't know what to do", she said.
