Jumping The Tijuana Border Wall | AJ+

Jumping The Tijuana Border Wall | AJ+


This group of asylum seekers is trying to climb the fence that divides Mexico and the United States. Among them is a 4-year-old girl, accompanied by her mother. Ada and her 4-year-old daughter Monserrat spent seven weeks traveling 2,000 miles from Honduras to Tijuana mainly on foot. Their aim is to claim asylum in the United States. Tijuana’s government is restricting humanitarian aid in an attempt to shut down camps like this. Migrants like Ada and her daughter don’t have access to bathrooms or running water, and many have fallen sick. The U.S. Department of Homeland Security also adds to their despair by limiting the number of people who can seek asylum to a few dozen per day. Because of this restriction, thousands have to wait for months before they can reach U.S. soil. Ada’s decision to cross illegally and turn herself in to Border Patrol may seem like a way to jump the queue. But climbing the fence in Tijuana is a dangerous choice. Many migrants are robbed, kidnapped, hurt or even killed in the attempt. And Ada will also risk being separated from her daughter. The journey from Honduras to the U.S. can be dangerous for anyone, but especially for women and children. Ada found safety in numbers by traveling with a caravan. After praying inside the tent, the group heads to the border. Ada embarked on this journey because she and her daughter were being harassed by gangs. She is risking everything to save her daughter’s life. Their first attempt at jumping the fence is disrupted by journalists. But this group is nowhere close to giving up.

  5. Well. We the taxpayers bused her and child to New York. By now shes receiving food, cash, medical, and housing. Pathetic.

  6. you guys take a look at Honduras. These people have it better than our homeless, and poor, oppress citizens here in the USA. We have real citizens and families in need. This is all about getting rid of these people and making Honduras a Vacation luxury spot. The government there just does not want to spend the money on keeping their people. Housing, food, shelter, and medical, cost money. They are using their money to build roads and hotels. People want better education and better jobs..

    America think with your head not
    your heart ! These people will be cared for in their country, but they know if they gain entry they will receive a much greater welfare system !
    America we can't afford to support the whole world, just because of the success of our country. If these are such hard working people why isn't their country as successful as we are
    here in America ?
    71% of legal migrants are on some sort of gov. assnts. and over
    60% of illegals are on gov. assnts. of some kind. Over 30% of our prison population is illegals.
    Illegals are much more apt to commit a crime, they have kept our wages stagnate for well over 40 years and the steal our jobs.
    You can deny these facts but they are the " FACTS " these invaders have cost the hard working American tax payer to much for far to long !! ITS TIME ,
    DEPORT EVERY MAN WOMAN AND CHILD !!
