'Caravan' migrants at US-Mexico border vow to wait

Al Jazeera spoke to some of the migrants at their makeshift camp in Tijuana, waiting for their chance to be granted asylum.

    Only a handful of people in the so-called "migrant caravan" have so far been allowed to apply for political asylum in the United States.

    Around 115 asylum seekers who have made the long journey from Central America are waiting on the Mexican side of the border.

    Al Jazeera's Manuel Rapalo spoke with some of them at their makeshift camp in Tijuana, while they wait for their chance to speak with US immigration officials.
