The first illegals from the Central American caravan are probing security at the border. The Washington Examiner reports:
The first wave of migrants from the Central American caravan began climbing border fences on Tuesday after arriving at the U.S. border.
Many on the Mexican side of the border climbed the fence and sat or walked on top of it, while others jumped and crawled through openings in the fence, only to run back to the Mexico side when U.S. Border Patrol agents approached, Fox 5 San Diego reported.
Border Patrol released a statement Tuesday that said they believe some of those at the fence are members who were traveling as part of the Central American migrant caravan that originated in Honduras.
Migrants who reached the border fence in that area are from Honduras, Guatemala, Nicaragua, and El Salvador.
Border Patrol will be critical to stopping these infiltrators, as troops cannot arrest them on US soil. However, the laying of barbed wire will help funnel illegals into smaller areas where they can hopefully be apprehended.
