William La Jeunesse hear stories of mothers in a border town in Mexico in the midst of the immigration crisis.

TIJUANA – In this city, a jumping-off point for refugees from all over the world, President Trump and the policy on migration is that some of the second thoughts.

“If this is true, I will return. I don’t want to be separated from my children,” said a woman with three children, who arrived here from the violent Mexican state of Michoacán.

On your phone, was a picture of an immigrant boy about the same age as your daughter – behind a chain-link fence. She shared the photo with the two other women in the vicinity.

“When it comes to a choice between the junction and the loss of my children, I’m going to have my children,” said a woman in a purple fleece sweater. “I don’t want to be separated from my children.”

The women gathered at the so-called “El Chaparral gate” at the U.S. port of entry in San Ysidro South of San Diego. At 8 o’clock, the place is full of immigrants waiting to apply for asylum. Men, women, and children. From Africa, Central America and Asia. The USA, however, lasts only a few dozen asylum seekers per day, based on the capacity.

“I believe that the United States is a nation that respects human rights,” said a man in a green jumpsuit from Cameroon.

Three men from the West African nation spent four months traveling from Cameroon to Panama by boat, then bus to Tijuana. They were interviewed in Tijuana four weeks of waiting for asylum.

“Someone wants to kill me,” said his older friend, who also made the trip. “I do not believe that the United States wants to happen.”

Most of the migrants are economic. You can escape from poverty and violence, but embellish stories of persecution in the hope of qualifying for asylum. It is to separate up to an immigration judge facts from fiction. But among those who cross illegally, the first, the fraud border patrol agents.

While President Trump raised his policy the separation of parents and children in detention, he always wants to condemn those that are illegally introduced. That, sources say, could create a bottleneck. With bed space is already near capacity, the President may be forced to accept a policy, which he rejects: “catch and release.”

“It would be a group of five or seven, all of which had the same answers, and no one was in the connection,” said San Diego Border Patrol Agent Eduardo Oleos. “This tells me that you coached.”

The immigration lawyers and the smuggling groups that tell the control over the border, often the immigrants what to say, in your first “credible fear” interview. Pass, and most of them remain in the U.S. for an indefinite period of time, regardless of an immigration judge the results.

“We know that someone you are coaching, or we even say the piece of paper with the answers to these, or to a specific statement, that their credible fear,” said National Border Patrol Council Local 1613 President Terence Shigg. “We had times in which people have here and it worked. You go on social media or give them a call back home and say, ‘hey, this is what happened to me. This is what I’ve done. This is what I told them. This is what works.'”

Across town, the shelter is filled with migrants waiting to cross. A young man in a blue sweatshirt from Honduras, from the long and dangerous journey alone. I asked why the parents allow this.

“Because Mara takes the kids,” he said, referring to the gang Mara Salvatruchia, or MS-13. “The police (and bandits) are looking for older people. Do not look for children. The parents prefer that you travel alone, than to stay in Honduras and captured by the Mara.”
