Migrants Arrested in Border Clash Will Avoid Criminal Charges

Inside the migrant camp at the border

Ten Central American women taking part in the migrant caravan camped on the US-Mexican border said Thursday (Nov 29) they were starting a hunger strike to pressure American authorities to let them apply for asylum.

Numerous migrants admit frankly that, when they set out, they had no real strategy beyond reaching the United States border. Three other men, including a Mexican and Guatemalan national and Arizona man, were also arrested.

"I didn't really have much of a plan when I left Honduras: everyone said that we would be able to cross the border - I thought it would be easier", said 29-year-old Yocelyn Alvarado as she picked up her 3-year-old son Fernando to stop him wondering into vast puddle of stinking floodwater and sodden trash. The suspect then tried to grab the handcuffs from the agent, sparking a tug-of-war that sent both men tumbling down a hill.

Jose Castro, a 45-year-old banana picker from Honduras, said he had slept with his wife and their two daughters, ages 4 and 5, under wet cotton sheets on an open field inside the shelter. The suspect was detained around 10:30 p.m. and placed under arrest, when he allegedly admitted to entering the country without authorization. As an agent approached Rodriguez, he allegedly turned and pointed a loaded pistol at the agent. The mayor, who supports the deportation of violent migrants, once again called on the federal government and the newly elected leader to step up their efforts to support the city, which is struggling to accommodate around 8,000 migrants now waiting for the U.S. to process their asylum claims.

That line of police installed tall steel panels behind them outside the Chaparral crossing on the Mexican side of the border, which completely blocked incoming traffic lanes to Mexico.

Bengals' Andy Dalton out for season with thumb injury
Former Cleveland Browns head coach Hue Jackson was gifted the game ball on Sunday against his former team, but not in a good way. Cleveland's win ended a 25-game road losing streak and improved its record to 4-6-1 on the season.

The only two individuals Customs and Border Protection referred for prosecution ended up not being charged because they had medical problems and could not be held at the San Diego detention center, according to reports.

Border Patrol officials reported 786 assaults against agents in fiscal year 2017, a spike of 73 percent over fiscal year 2016, even though apprehensions fell from 415,816 to 310,532.

San Diego Sector Chief Patrol Agent Rodney Scott publicly thanked the Honduran Consulate for aiding in the investigation of Ramirez.

But The Intercept's investigation found that a change in the way assaults were reported in Texas' Rio Grande Valley led to numerous additional assault reports over the prior year. Border Patrol officials say they spotted the trio around 11 pm on the night of Saturday, November 24, one mile east of the San Ysidro Port of Entry.
