Customs and Border Protection said Wednesday that agents arrested the woman November 26 after she entered the country illegally near Imperial Beach, California, across the border from Tijuana, Mexico.

The mother anxiously urged them on.

Reporters from Reuters watched as migrants breached the border, "risking nearly certain detention by USA authorities but hoping the illegal entry will allow them to apply for asylum", the news service reported.

Maryury Serrano Hernandez, 19, told the network giving birth in the USA was a "big reward" for the family's grueling journey.

The move came a week after hundreds of migrants rushed the U.S. border, prompting U.S. Customs and Border Protection and Border Patrol officers to fire tear gas and smoke grenades at the crowd, which included many women and children.

Moments before flattening herself under the fence, she said she was slipping through to the U.S.in an attempt to "give a better life" to her daughter Charlot. "That is not the case", U.S. Customs and Border Protection Commissioner Kevin McAleenan said in an interview Tuesday morning.

It's unclear where the families were taken from there.

And now that the invasion has begun - even if in dribs and drabs - the question is whether President Trump will exercise his constitutional authority to stop it, as he promised, or permit leftist legal subversives and their allied federal judges to usurp his powers.

The U.S. has an established process for asylum seekers to present themselves in an "orderly" manner at a port of entry, DeSio told AP via email.

McAleenan explained how weak laws put "vulnerable" migrant families at risk.

U.S. Border Patrol agents watch unauthorized migrants cross into San Ysidro, Calif., on Sunday.

The migrants in Tijuana are part of several caravans that traveled through Mexico in an effort to enter the United States, citing issues such as widespread violence and dismal job prospects in their home countries.

Some of the people seek economic opportunity but many tell of death threats. US officials said agents had been wounded or hit by migrants throwing stones. "I prefer to work, to behave well, here".
