- Dozens of migrants, including children, jumped across the border between the US and Mexico on Sunday
- They were immediately arrested by American Border Patrol guards and planned to claim political asylum
- Thousands of migrants are camped on the Mexican side of the border after walking there as part of a caravan
- Migrants had to move shelter after the first one flooded, with doctors warning disease outbreak is inevitable
Dozens of Central American migrants scaled the border fence between Mexico and the US on Sunday, only to be arrested by US Border Patrol guards.
The migrants, who walked thousands of miles to the border as part of a caravan, said they now plan to claim political asylum – fearing violence because of their beliefs if they return home.
The courts have an obligation to hear all asylum cases no matter whether people entered the country illegally or not, after President Trump‘s executive order looking to block the practice was deemed illegal.
