VIDEO: Migrant woman from iconic tear gas photo allowed into US with her 5 kids


Several asylum seekers, joined by two members of the U.S. Congress, waited on a small patch of U.S. soil for hours demanding that their claims be processed immediately, challenging a U.S. policy to make people wait in Mexico if there are capacity constraints.

The 21 Honduran asylum seekers camped on U.S. soil at San Diego’s Otay Mesa port of entry, with the official border separating the U.S. and Mexico to the south and U.S. inspection booths to the north, said Nicole Ramos, an attorney at Al Otro Lado, a legal services organization working on behalf of the migrants. The official border marker generally goes unnoticed by people walking toward inspectors.

The article goes on to state the following:

By Monday night, U.S. Customs and Border Protection agreed to process eight unaccompanied kids, one mom with five kids and one man, Ramos said. But a family of five and one man continued to wait on the small piece of U.S. soil, backed by the presence of U.S. Reps. Nanette Barragan and Jimmy Gomez, both California Democrats.

KPBS investigative reporter Jean Guerroro posted multiple updates on Twitter Monday night as the ordeal played out, and said 8 unaccompanied minors were finally allowed to enter the US and make their asylum claims, along with the Honduran woman and her five kids.
