Cellphone video catches illegal border crossing

IMPERIAL BEACH (KUSI) – A group of migrants who breached the U.S. border fence by the Pacific Ocean at Playas de Tijuana were detained Thursday by Border Patrol agents in Border Field State Park.

The group of about 35 people included women and children who said they were mostly from Honduras and came to Tijuana in a caravan.

Cellphone video sent (by ‘MexicanAndy’) to KUSI shows people cutting the border fencing and migrants running through.

The detained migrants were instructed by Border Patrol agents not to speak with the media.

After the last of the migrants slipped through, a Border Patrol SUV drove up to the fence and blocked the gap.
