Migrant caravan from Central America arrives at US-Mexico border

Dozens of Central American migrants arrived at the border city of Tijuana late on Tuesday, despite warnings it would be futile to try to cross to claim asylum in the United States.

    Dozens of migrants from Central America who have captured the attention and anger of President Donald Trump have begun arriving at the US border with Mexico.

    They are part of a larger group of migrants seeking asylum in the US, most say they are fleeing violence or persecution in their own countries, including Honduras, El Salvador and Guatemala.

    The asylum-seekers will eventually turn themselves into US border authorities.

    But the process for seeking asylum in the US can be long, and has no guarantees.
