DHS Arrests Convicted Murderer Who Was Traveling with the Caravan Migrants

According to U.S. Customs and Border Protection statistics, assaults on Border Patrol agents have recently spiked - though an investigation by the news website The Intercept disputed the sharp rise, contributing it to artificial inflation because of the way assaults are tallied. Still others escaped prosecution because in the chaos surrounding Sunday's incident, authorities missed pieces of information necessary to file charges, such as the names of the officers who made arrests. Homeland Security officials have said as many as 600 people in the caravans have criminal records, but have not specified how they know, or given many details. Prosecutors said he ran toward a Border Patrol agent - apparently unprovoked - and "reached back with his arm and swung" at the agent.

Thousands of migrants who have crowded into the Mexican border town of Tijuana have health issues, including lice and tuberculosis, Tijuana's Health Department said.

"Consistent with the president's direction to do all within our authority to secure U.S. borders, I am seeking your assistance and ask you to prioritize efforts to help us prevent illegal entry into the United States", Nielsen wrote. "They gave us mattresses, too", said Argeta. They fanned out on both sides of the crossing and many slipped through an opening in the border fence or tried to climb over.

Accusing the influx of Central American migrants of acting violently and disrespectfully towards the locals, Gastelum said their presence in the city has "hurt us". That prompted Border Patrol agents to launch tear gas and pepper spray balls to quell the unrest in the crowd that included small children in diapers.

Events leading to the arrest of the Honduran suspect began around 9:30 p.m.in an area about four miles west of San Ysidro, and about 400 yards north of the barrier between the USA and Mexico, according to the federal criminal complaint.

Ramirez told U.S. Customs and Border Patrol agents he had traveled to Tijuana, Mexico, with the migrant caravan from Honduras through Guatemala - all the way north to the U.S. border. They point to images of crying barefoot children running from clouds of tear gas after Sunday's clash as proof of the administration's inhumane treatment. They were accused of illegally entering the country, which is a federal crime.

The suspect allegedly admitted to being from El Salvador and entering the USA without authorization. Are they fleeing because they're economic migrants?

He said he joined the caravan to find better job prospects in the United States.
