Last of Asylum Seekers Enter US as Caravan Disbands

(From The Daily Caller)

More than 70 Central American migrants streamed across the southwest border on Friday afternoon, the final group of asylum seekers traveling in a well-publicized “caravan” to be granted entry to the U.S.

Their crossing brings the total to 228 migrants who have entered the U.S. since the caravan began trickling into Tijuana in late April. Friday’s group comprised the last of more than 400 caravan members who had been camped out in Tijuana, Mexico, just outside the San Ysidro port of entry, since last weekend.

Not all of the caravan migrants who made it to Tijuana will attempt to turn themselves into U.S. border officials, reports the San Diego Union-Tribune. Those staying behind include migrants who need additional legal help before crossing into the U.S., as well as people who have previously been deported and have virtually no chance of making a successful petition for asylum.
