Approximately 60 migrants breach the border in Imperial Beach

SAN DIEGO (KUSI) – Two groups of migrants crossed illegally from Mexico into the United States yesterday, cutting through a border fence at Border Field State Park in San Diego, officials said. Agents continue to search the area for additional subjects of interest.

Video posted to YouTube showed people slipping between an opening in the fence about 5 p.m., then running along Imperial Beach as a lone Customs and Border Protection agent in a vehicle blared its siren in an attempt to stop the migrants.

A total of 52 people were arrested for crossing the border illegally and CBP said it did not appear anyone got away. This includes 23 males, ages 18 to 53, 12 females, ages 21 to 50, and 17 juveniles, ages 1 to 14.

Video captured at the scene, where the wall was cut and people got through, credited to “Mexican Andy.”
