  • Migrant caravan relocated to new shelter farther from the border

The move came a week after hundreds of migrants rushed the U.S. border, prompting U.S. Customs and Border Protection and Border Patrol officers to fire tear gas and smoke grenades at the crowd, which included many women and children.

U.S. Border Patrol agents watch unauthorized migrants cross into San Ysidro, Calif., on Sunday.

Border Patrol agents say they rescued a family whose children were dropped from the top of the 18-foot border fence Monday.

Immigration advocates have long warned that migrants making the journey from Central America to the USA could be setting foot on a unsafe path.

Some migrants helped each other over, using blankets as ropes.

Melanie Hernandez, a migrant at the new shelter, said the desperate situation created by the rain has "improved the humanitarian response" offered by Mexican and US non-governmental organizations, many of whom are offering clothes, medical care and some legal services.

Earlier, Karen Mayeni, a 29-year-old Honduran, sized up the fence while clinging to her three children, aged six, 11 and 12. "We'll figure out what to do in a couple of days".

Applying for asylum at a USA land border can take months, so if migrants enter illegally and present themselves to authorities, their cases could be heard more quickly. He helped the adults over the fence and then was caught on camera dropping a two-year-old and a seven-year-old over the fence to the family below on the US side, Homeland Security said.

The attempt to cross into the U.S. illegally came just days after the migrants were transferred from one temporary shelter to another after it had become unsanitary.

Thousands of migrants have been waiting for a chance to apply for asylum.

About two dozen migrants climbed over the border wall separating Mexico from the USA near Tijuana on Monday.

United States officials have restricted applications through the Chaparral gate in Tijuana to between 40 and 100 per day.

McAleenan added: 'These areas where we're seeing breaches in San Diego sector with some of these caravan migrants coning over are areas where we're trying to replace with a modern border wall system.

Those that made it across the fence in Tijuana still had to scramble up a hill and contend with a more forbidding wall to reach California.

"Climb up. You can do it!" They turned around and waved to those still on the Mexican side.
