One of the children suffered a facial injury and was treated.

Central American migrants stuck on the threshold of the United States in Mexico breached the border fence on Monday, risking nearly certain detention by USA authorities but hoping the illegal entry will allow them to apply for asylum.

With growing frustration at the length of the asylum process, migrants climb over the border fence that divides the United States and Mexico on Sunday near Las Playas de Tijuana, Mexico.

She left Honduras on October 17 with her husband and son and was taken into custody by U.S. Customs and Border Patrol on November 26. Although a few tried to escape, most walked over to the officials to turn themselves in.

The suspect who helped the children over the border wall to the group did not cross into the U.S., CPB said, according to Yuma's KYMA-TV.

Earlier, Karen Mayeni, a 29-year-old Honduran, sized up the fence while clinging to her three children, aged six, 11 and 12. "We'll figure out what to do in a couple of days".

But about 90 minutes later, she and her children were seen on the USA side of the border, according to the report. Mexican authorities arrested and deported those they considered responsible for compromising the city's commitment to public order. "They were brought to the border by a group that told them they would be able to cross easily into the U.S.to present asylum claims, and that's not the case".

The attempt to cross into the USA illegally came just days after the migrants were transferred from one temporary shelter to another after it had become unsanitary. They were well organized.

The San Diego sector has experienced a "slight uptick" in families entering the U.S. illegally and turning themselves in to agents since a caravan of Central American migrants arrived in Tijuana two weeks ago, U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) said Tuesday.

The commissioner added that these scenarios are being played out every day at the border.

At least one person on the Mexico side was spotted helping adult members of the family traverse the wall at a point near the San Luis port of entry in Arizona, according to CBP. "It's a huge challenge that we need to work with Congress to address", he explained. Mexico has offered asylum to the members of the caravan, but many are still trying to make their way to the United States.
