US Admits Few Central American Asylum Seekers; Lets in 8 Members of Caravan from Mexico Border

U.S. border inspectors allowed some of the Central American asylum seekers to enter the country for processing today (May 1, 2018), ending a brief impasse over lack of space, according to the Newsmax website.

But the migrants who crossed Mexico in a caravan may face a long legal path.

Caravan organizers said eight members of the group, criticized by President Donald Trump that traveled from southern Mexico to the border city of Tijuana, were allowed in to be interviewed by asylum officers, but U.S. Customs and Border Protection did not provide a number.

About 140 others were still waiting in Mexico to turn themselves in at San Diego's San Ysidro border crossing, the nation's busiest, said Alex Mensing, project organizer for Pueblo Sin Fronteras, which is leading the caravan.
