The 5 biggest myths about the migrant caravan

Others scarfed down food before they filed into the center, afraid there would be no food once they turned themselves in to border officials.

His comments came shortly before a migrant caravan carrying asylum seekers arrived at the Mexico-California border from Central America. The migrants congregated on a bridge leading to the United States border while waiting to be processed by American officials.

US president Donald Trump vowed last week to "stop" the caravan while cabinet members said they would deliver a swift response. About 4:30 p.m. Sunday, the first 50 of the roughly 200 asylum-seekers attempted to walk into the San Ysidro Port of Entry to officially begin the process of requesting safe haven, the San Diego Union-Tribune reported.

He then assured that once space opens up and "resources become available" officers "will be able to take additional individuals into the port for processing".

The Trump administration has been tracking the caravan since it started in Mexico on March 25 near the Guatemala border.

If they pass that initial interview, they will likely have to make their case to a judge, who will decide whether to grant asylum.

But whether the USA plans to offer asylum remains unclear. President Trump has closely followed the migrants' progress, taking to Twitter to denounce the caravan.

Migrants made their way from Tijuana to San Diego on Sunday morning, toward International Friendship Park on the countries' border.

Appriximately 50 members made it past Mexican officials and traversed a bridge on Sunday, but were not allowed inside the USA inspection site and remained outside the building, the AP said. They say the Trump administration also has created a false perception that asylum seekers are fraudsters and criminals and that asylum laws are "loopholes" that should be closed.

"Are you watching that mess that's going on right now with the caravan coming up?" he said.

"We are a very welcoming country but just like your own house, we expect everyone to enter through our front door, and answer questions honestly", he said in a statement. There, they were told to wait temporarily in Mexico.

Late last week, another organizer told ABC News that the "caravan" had been reduced to 375 migrants - and stressed that not all of the remaining members were seeking asylum in the United States.

Nicole Ramos, a lawyer working for the caravan members, said it was unbelievable the U.S. authorities could not process more asylum seekers until the backlog eases, especially as they knew they were coming for weeks. "If we don't have a border we don't have a country".

KAHN: Illegal immigration to the US through the Southern border plunged dramatically after President Trump's inauguration.

Yet others who tried to slip across illegally, have already been detained.
