SAN YSIDRO, Calif. (KGTV) -- The Department of Justice has filed complaints against 11 people believed to be in the caravan currently at the U.S.-Mexico border, accusing them of illegally entering the United States.

Two Salvadorans, six Hondurans and three Guatemalans face the charges, CNN reports.

10 of those charged face a misdemeanor chare for allegedly entering the U.S. illegally while another individual allegedly entered the country after being deported.

A probable cause statement alleges many of those charged were seen in an area known as Goat Canyon on the U.S. side of the border. Others were seen on the U.S. side of the border roughly 2 miles away from the San Ysidro.
