  • The border fence between Mexico and the United States

A group of Central American migrants -mostly from Honduras- get over a fence as they try to reach the US-Mexico border near the El Chaparral border crossing in Tijuana, Baja California State, Mexico, on November 25, 2018.

The decision not to prosecute came despite President Donald Trump's vow that the USA will not tolerate lawlessness and after extensive preparations were made for the caravan, including deployment of thousands of active-duty troops to the border.

According to U.S. Customs and Border Protection statistics, assaults on Border Patrol agents have recently spiked - though an investigation by the news website The Intercept disputed the sharp rise, contributing it to artificial inflation because of the way assaults are tallied.

Mexico's President-elect Andrés Manuel López Obrador said the country could offer at least 100,000 work permits to Central Americans who ultimately want to enter the U.S. There is a high demand for factory workers in northern Mexico and for workers for the "Maya Train" project in southern Mexico, according to the Post.

Homeland Security says it has identified 600 identified criminals within the caravan.

"The perpetrators will be prosecuted", she said then.

A member of the notorious MS-13 gang, who was recently arrested, told authorities that he traveled to the United States with the migrant caravan. They fanned out on both sides of the crossing and many slipped through an opening in the border fence or tried to climb over. A six-hour period during which US officials were forced to close the border crossing cost his city $129 million pesos.

Rodney Scott, chief of the Border Patrol's San Diego sector, has said those arrested Sunday for illegal entry included 27 men, with the other 15 being women and children. They were forced back by US Border Patrol agents, who fired tear gas and rubber bullets.

That line of police installed tall steel panels behind them outside the Chaparral crossing on the Mexican side of the border, which completely blocked incoming traffic lanes to Mexico. Still others escaped prosecution because in the chaos surrounding Sunday's incident, authorities missed pieces of information necessary to file charges, such as the names of the officers who made arrests.

USA authorities are working on a new system to better record evidence if similar circumstances arise in the future, the official said.

Under the harsh immigration policies introduced by the administration of President Donald Trump, US border officials say they may have to stay put in Mexico for months before they can petition the authorities. Asylum seekers are often released in the USA pending the outcome of their cases in immigration court.
