Migrants in Mexico Continue to Look for Ways to Enter US

Migrants, many with children in tow, have been camping at a baseball field in the Mexican border city of Tijuana. Around 6,000 migrants who have trekked across Mexico in a caravan in recent weeks are now crammed into the field.

They gather at the Chaparral border crossing, opposite San Diego, California, every day and have said they would wait there until they could request asylum, in spite of growing U.S. measures to tighten the border.

Authorities in Tijuana said the migrants are facing up to a six-month wait to be able to get an appointment to plead their case for asylum with U.S. authorities.
