Convicted murderer caught crossing border near San Ysidro

Border Patrol agents arrested a gang member and a newly released convicted murder last weekend, both said to have traveled to the border with the migrant caravan.

A group of asylum seekers camping out at the U.S. -Mexico border have started a hunger strike to protest Mexico's efforts to block them from making their way to U.S. The protest group is part of a caravan of thousands of Central American asylum seekers who have waited for weeks in the Mexican border town of Tijuana to process their asylum claims.

Border Patrol agents in San Diego arrested an alien from Honduras earlier this week after he crossed into the United States illegally.

Hundreds of migrants from Central America who joined a caravan of people trying to cross from Mexico into the United States have agreed to go home.

Mr. Ramirez, meanwhile, served 16 years in prison in Honduras for his murder conviction.

"On Nov. 24th, around 11 P.M., agents detected three people crossing the border illegally approximately one-mile east of the San Ysidro port of entry".

A self-admitted MS-13 gang member also traveling with the caravan was arrested Saturday.

"We're now having major issues where these young men have been allowed to transplant to Washington D.C., Baltimore, Los Angeles -- already MS-13 strongholds", she warns. "We are now predictably seeing members of the caravan - which includes criminals - show up at the border and claim asylum".

"As DHS confirmed weeks ago, there are at least 600 known criminals in the caravan flow".

"Since no one is listening to us, we've decided as a women's launch a hunger strike", said Claudia Miranda of Honduras at an improvised press conference in the border city of Tijuana. The fact that Border Patrol arrested a murderer within the first caravan-related apprehensions at our southern border proves how real the threat of the caravan is to our national security and public safety.
