Pressure is being felt at the southern border as thousands of Central American migrants continue to seek asylum.
During a news conference Tuesday, Mexico’s head of immigration said options for the migrant caravan to stay in Mexico should be considered. His statement comes after Tijuana’s mayor spoke out against the caravans saying the city is overwhelmed and the current influx of migrants is likely to last for another six months.
The city has arrested at least 34 migrants so far on a range of charges including drug possession, public intoxication and resisting police.
This comes as Pres. Trump has vowed to appeal a ruling by the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals, which blocked his asylum ban for illegal border crossers from taking effect.
