President Trump is urging a “migrant caravan” to apply for asylum in Mexico rather than in the U.S., as homicides there reach an all-time high. KPBS looks at the asylum-seekers already stuck in Tijuana, waiting for their turn to enter the San Ysidro Port of Entry.
A U.S. Customs and Border Protection report obtained by KPBS through a Freedom of Information Act request reveals mock-ups of all eight border wall prototypes were found vulnerable to at least one breaching technique.
Tijuana’s homeless migrants have long been seen by many locals as a nuisance: bad for business, protagonists of petty crime, drug addicts.
