Migrants have reportedly broken though the U.S. border at Tijuana, Mexico and some may have escaped. Reuters reports that about 25 migrants climbed a 10-foot metal fence as darkness descended Monday night.

U.S. Border Patrol guards caught most of them, according to Reuters, but others may have escaped detention. Witnesses say the would-be refugees used blankets and ropes to climb over the wall, where thousands of them remain, despite Tijuana’s apparent resolve to move the migrants further south amid reports of infectious diseases at the border shelter.

One witness said she and her three children were just watching other migrants scale the fence and “waiting to see what happens.” However, according to the news outlet, she and her family were over the border within two hours.

The border incursion occurred as chaos continues to define the status of the caravan migrants and as President Donald Trump promotes his border wall with renewed fervor. He has vowed to proceed with the development of the wall, despite threats of a government shutdown by his opponents in Congress. Trump is also challenging a federal judge’s ruling that the federal government must assess the refugee status of migrants who illegally enter the U.S.

Reports have warned that certain migrants among the caravan are criminals and carrying infectious diseases. About 500 in the group already tried to storm the U.S. border, but were repulsed with tear gas.

Many Tijuana residents exhibited their irritation when the migrants first arrived in their city with loud protests.

    Our govt is nothing but a bunch of bumbling assholes who came from priveledged beginnings and never had a dirty job in their lives, but people keep voting them in. I have thrown in the towel. When Hal and I for years were telling everyone what was happening and who was responsible you all called us coooks, conspiracy types and anti Semites. The only thing that can save us now is God because the majority of you morons couldn't be bothered when we had the upper hand on things. You all get what you so warmly deserve. I you ain't gonna do anything about it and get actively involved; shut the fuck up. Enuf said you know the rollcall.

    Sounds like they have the border locked down pretty tight, and they cannot even stop 25 people from a bum rush. What a joke!

      Border patrol doesn’t have the numbers to be everywhere at the same time...that’s why an effective barrier “wall” is needed. This way they don’t need to be everywhere

    The only way to stop them is to ditch welfare programs.
