"In those six hours that the border was closed, we lost approximately 129 million pesos", said Gastélum, referring to the recent closure after migrants pelted Border Patrol agents with rocks before they were turned back.

Members of the Central American migrant caravan sit next to the border wall in Tijuana, Mexico, 05 December 2018.

Last week the mayor sent a deputy to Mexico City to petition the United Nations Human Rights Ombudsman and High Commissioner for Refugees to assist the migrants.

Fifteen seconds later, the mother and daughter from Honduras were together in the U.S. And soon a U.S. Border Protection agent approached on an all-terrain vehicle to take them away in custody.

A Honduran woman who traveled with a migrant caravan from her home country to the US border successfully entered the country illegally and gave birth to her child on USA soil, according to KNSD-TV. "We do see individuals trying to cross illegally in the San Diego sector, we are addressing that activity and then of course you saw the scenes of the family literally dropping children over the fence. At least one of the children suffered an injury from the drop". The smuggler who tossed the kids over the wall fled into Mexico.

That section of the border wall is scheduled for replacement.

President Trump has repeatedly warned that the migrants will not be allowed into the United States and put down a policy to that effect.

Trump must decide whether he will tolerate the attack on his executive powers, or ignore the judge and close the border. Last year, more than 26,000 illegal immigrants were arrested in addition to almost 11,000 pounds of marijuana and 3,000 pounds of cocaine that were seized.

Mexican officials have confirmed three cases of tuberculosis, four cases of AIDS, and four separate cases of chickenpox, Fox News reported.

Further, there is the threat of hepatitis, and several of the migrants have lice and skin infections, the spokesperson said.

Migrants such as the families entering illegally could well start a typhus epidemic or bring in chagas disease.

"The thousands of migrants are now being sheltered at a former concert venue", Fox reported.

"Since that caravan formed in mid-October, we've seen 90,000 people come to our border, 85 percent of those crossing illegally between ports of entry, and all lured by the fact that our legal framework has huge gaps that create the opportunity to stay in the USA while awaiting your court hearing, even if they don't have a lawful permission or protection claim".
