Caravan migrants declare hunger strike to pressure US

Mexico gets first leftist leader after 32 years of technocrats

But more than 6,000 migrants plan to remain in a large sports complex and tents around Tijuana. Tijuana's health department revealed migrants were suffering from tuberculosis, chickenpox, skin infections and hepatitis.

The decision not to prosecute came despite President Donald Trump's vow that the US will not tolerate lawlessness and after extensive preparations were made for the caravan, including deployment of thousands of active-duty troops to the border. The man was part of the caravan from Central America that is now parked in Tijuana, Mexico.

But many heading for home fear they won't be able to win asylum bids.

The two are being held up by federal authorities as examples of some of the criminals who have traveled through Mexico to the border with Central American caravans hoping to enter the US, many through the asylum process.

During an immigration interview, Ramirez reportedly told the San Diego Sector Border Patrol agents that he was part of the migrant caravan originating in Honduras-making stops in Guatemala and Mexico before his capture in southern California.

New Porsche 911 revealed at LA Auto Show
With the new engine and transmission, the new 911s are about 0.4 seconds quicker than their predecessors in a 0-100kmph run. The beefier wheel arches housing 20-inch front and 21-inch rear alloys also contribute to the vehicle's meaner stance.

"In April, another MS-13 member, Herberth Geovani Argueta-Chavez, 18, was apprehended after illegally entering the USA with a group suspected to be part of the caravan that headed for the border last spring".

President Trump threatened to "permanently" close key sections of the US-Mexico border earlier this week should the crisis continue to escalate.

Ivonne Aguirre of the International Organisation for Migration told The Washington Post: "Some have sick relatives, some miss their families, some are surprised by the conditions here, which are not what they imagined". On Saturday he was nabbed near the San Ysidro border crossing along with two other Honduran illegal immigrants, having just crossed without permission.

Hundreds of people marched toward the San Ysidro crossing where they were stopped by Mexican police. That prompted Border Patrol agents to launch tear gas and pepper spray balls to quell the unrest.
