400+ caravan migrants detained after crossing border fence in Texas

Hundreds of migrants from a Central American “caravan” turned themselves in to the US Border Patrol in El Paso, Texas. They hope to still get asylum in the US, due to to a court challenge to President Donald Trump’s new policy.

Groups of migrants, including families, showed up at an opening in the border fence between El Paso and Ciudad Juarez starting Monday morning, the Border Patrol said. By the end of the day, over 400 had turned themselves in, and were taken into custody.

The migrants were part of a caravan of people requesting asylum in the US, Border Patrol spokesman Joe Romero told El Paso’s KVIA-TV.
