Border Patrol Caught a Convicted Murderer From Honduras in the Caravan

Border Patrol Caught a Convicted Murderer From Honduras in the Caravan

Some Central American migrants, mostly men, tried to breach the border crossing between Tijuana, Mexico and California on Sunday, after pushing past a blockade of Mexican police standing guard near the global border crossing in a bid to pressure the U.S to hear their asylum claims.

He was arrested last Saturday night, November 24, but DHS only announced it Friday.

Mexico's Milenio TV showed images of at least a few of the hundreds of migrants at the border tried to jump over the fence separating the two countries.

"On Nov. 24th, around 11 P.M., agents detected three people crossing the border illegally approximately one-mile east of the San Ysidro port of entry". One of the two still unidentified males was previously deported from the USA and could face federal charges for illegal re-entry. The San Diego Sector Border Patrol's Foreign Operations Branch corroborated the man's admission with the Honduran Consulate in Los Angeles and discovered that Ramirez served 16 years in a Honduran prison for his crime.

Homeland Security said he and the two men he was caught with are being processed for deportation.

Gastélum said the blame lies on the unidentified organisers of the caravan. The fact that Border Patrol arrested a murderer within the first caravan-related apprehensions at our southern border proves how real the threat of the caravan is to our national security and public safety.

More than 4,700 migrants are living in tents and under blankets either directly in the shelter or in the surrounding blocks, reported the San Diego Union-Tribune.

After calling the migrant caravan a "humanitarian crisis", Mayor Juan Manuel Gastélum said he can not continue to fund the shelters for migrants without federal support.

Tijuana residents, many of whom have taken to the streets to protest the caravan's presence, are suffering financially.

US authorities say assailants threw a "hail of rocks" at Border Patrol agents in the Sunday chaos that erupted during a protest against USA asylum laws, striking four who escaped serious injury.

The health department spokesman told Fox News that out of the estimated 6,000 migrants in Tijuana, 2,267 are being treated for some kind of health issue.
