Border Patrol agents arrested the woman November 26 after she entered the country illegally near Imperial Beach, California, across the border from Tijuana, Mexico, Customs and Border Protection said Wednesday. He helped the adults over the fence and then was caught on camera dropping a two-year-old and a seven-year-old over the fence to the family below on the USA side, Homeland Security said.

Dramatic images from the Mexican border town of Tijuana showed migrants from the Central American caravan, including many small children crawl underneath the fence and into the United States yesterday.

The six people are all part of the same family from Guatemala and included three children: a 2-year-old, a 7-year-old and a 10-year-old.

McAleenan noted that the migrants' confusion at the border has left many desperately looking for a way to cross the border illegally.

This problem, according to McAleenan, stems from weak immigration laws in the USA leading migrant families to believe that they cross the border when they don't have valid asylum claims.

USA inspectors at the main border crossing in San Diego are processing up to about 100 asylum claims day, leaving thousands of migrants waiting in Tijuana.

Rachel's drastic action comes two weeks after a caravan of migrants arrived in Tijuana.

"We're just observing, waiting to see what happens", Mayeni said.

The attempt to cross into the U.S. illegally came just days after the migrants were transferred from one temporary shelter to another after it had become unsanitary.

Ninety minutes later, she and her family were over the fence.

Thousands of migrants have been waiting for a chance to apply for asylum.

Applying for asylum at a US land border can take months, so if migrants enter illegally and present themselves to authorities, their cases could be heard more quickly. They're well organized and brought to the border by a group and we told they would be able to cross easily into the U.S.to present an asylum claim.

USA officials have restricted applications through the Chaparral gate in Tijuana to between 40 and 100 per day.

Ms. Johnson reports, the U.S. Border Patrol's San Diego Sector is reportedly one of the most active in the nation.

Officials said the groups of illegal immigrants are not believed to be associated with the large caravan of mostly Central American migrants that have prompted the military deployment.

"Climb up. You can do it!" The toddler suffered minor injuries to her face during the crossing, according to authorities. They turned around and waved to those still on the Mexican side.
