SAN YSIDRO, Calif. (KGTV) - Over 70 migrants from the central American caravan are now in CPB custody, making their cases for asylum, according to attorneys working with them in Tijuana.
The attorneys say 49 people were taken into custody on Wednesday, starting the process that could last months. Ultimately, it will be up to an immigration judge to decide if their claims are legitimate.
There are three different groups seeking asylum. A group of transgenders, a group seeking political asylum and a group fleeing gang violence.
