TAPPED OUT: Tijuana Mayor Calls for 'ARREST' of Caravan Organizers, Cuts Funding

On Monday, 57-year-old Mexican citizen Hector Rodriguez-Chavez - who prosecutors said has been deported from the US on five occasions - was allegedly spotted hiding in tall grass about two miles east of the Otay Mesa Port of Entry.

Mexican authorities began moving Central American migrants out of an overcrowded shelter near the US border and taking them to a former concert venue much farther away in Tijuana, warning Friday that services will be cut off at the first site.

Homeland Security officials have said as many as 600 people in the caravans have criminal records, but have not specified how they know, or given many details. On Saturday he was nabbed near the San Ysidro border crossing along with two other Honduran illegal immigrants, having just crossed without permission.

U.S. Border Patrol helicopters flew overhead, while U.S. agents held vigil on foot beyond the wire fence in California.

An advocate for USA border enforcement says we can be thankful President Donald Trump's border enforcement policies are keeping thousands of migrants stuck in Mexico.

Homeland Security said Friday that a convicted murderer was among the members of the migrant caravan, and was caught trying to sneak into the USA late last week.

But city officials planned to stop offering food and medical services at the Benito Juarez sports complex next to the border Friday, and any migrants who stay will have to find their own food, Magallanes said.

Six men and one woman jumped or slipped over the border barrier in Tijuana and were quickly detained by customs and border protection agents.

Prosecutors said the agent placed his body on Rodriguez's right arm to try to control gain control of the pistol, and the two men wrestled for about a minute until two other Border Patrol agents arrived. Authorities on the USA side of the border used tear gas to disperse the migrants.

Events leading to the arrest of the Honduran suspect began around 9:30 p.m.in an area about four miles west of San Ysidro, and about 400 yards north of the barrier between the US and Mexico, according to the federal criminal complaint.

Central Americans are typically turned over to ICE, which flies them back home.

"Those are the real criminals because they're dealing with the lives of people", he added, referencing the organizer's behind the caravan whom he believes should face criminal charges.

Hundreds of the migrants are now living in hastily erected tents in Tijuana hoping to be able to cross into the U.S.to claim asylum - and then wait for their claims to be adjudicated by immigration judges.
