    Migrant Caravan Reaches US Border Despite Trump Threats

    Central American migrants, who attended the annual Migrants Stations of the Cross caravan for migrants' rights, ride a northern-bound train known as "La Bestia," or The Beast, as they arrive to Hermosillo, Sonora state, Mexico, Saturday, April 21, 2018.

    Hundreds of Central American migrants traveling through Mexico in a caravan began arriving in the border city Tuesday, with many still intent on seeking asylum despite fresh threats of prosecution and deportation from the Trump administration. 

    Numerous tents were set up at the Movimiento Juventud 2000 shelter in Tijuana, just south of California, to house the migrants before they attempt to surrender at the U.S. Port of Entry, NBC News reported.

    About 300 migrants are expected to sleep in the shelter before taking the last step of attempting to cross the border and possibly request asylum.
