A video clip of migrants from the large caravan, who have begun to reach the US border, has emerged.
The 90-second clip shows a man informing the migrants of the possible ways to enter the U.S. while also giving them instructions on what they should say once they are approached by U.S. officials.
“The first is to request asylum at the U.S. port of entry -at the border,” the man says.
He gives instructions to request asylum whether they enter legally, get caught trying to enter illegally, or are caught after they cross the border.
He also suggests they should wait to cross the border until they hear back from the “Deputy of the European Parliament.”
“If he brings us good news that is good for us, that we don’t have to leave for there…the deputy. If he does not bring us good news, we make the decision to leave,” he says to the crowd in Spanish.
On Sunday, the Mexican border was closed at the San Ysidro Port of Entry after a group of migrants in Tijuana stormed the area, prompting the U.S. Border Patrol to fire what appeared to be tear gas at the group.
Hundreds of Central American migrants who gathered in Tijuana pushed past a blockade of Mexican police standing guard and rushed toward the border.
The Port of Entry was reopened on Monday.
