“The day I came across, I felt a little pain, but I thought it will be because of my nerves,” she said.

But it wasn’t all roses and rainbows after that.

“I felt like a criminal,” Serrano-Hernandez said.

Migrant drowns in Calexico canal after crossing border illegally in storm, officials say

Migrant drowns in Calexico canal after crossing border illegally in storm, officials say A man who had just crossed illegally into the U.S. in Calexico drowned in a canal Wednesday night, according to the Border Patrol. Agents saw the man enter the U.S. with two others about 9 p.m. a couple of miles west of the Gran Plaza Outlets in Imperial County, officials said. The other two men swam across the All-American Canal and were apprehended immediately. Agents noticed the third man struggling to stay afloat and were unable to rescue him before he drowned, Border Patrol said. Agents with the Border Patrol Search Trauma and Rescue unit responded to recover his body, but the heavy rain and low visibility made the conditions too dangerous.

After hostilities ended, migrants formed into lines and began processing by Mexican authorities. As the second caravan entered Mexico on 30 October, the main body of some 4, 000 migrants , at Santiago Niltepec, demanded "safe "Trump threatens to close US -Mexico border over Honduran migrant caravan ".

Serrano-Hernandez is believed to be the first member of the migrant caravan to have a child after crossing the border to seek asylum.

Border Patrol did tell Fox News that the family was “placed into immigration proceedings and released on their own recognizance on December 2.”

MIGRANT CARAVAN SHELTER SHUT DOWN OVER 'BAD SANITARY CONDITIONS' AS HUNDREDS MOVE TO NEW FACILITY

The news comes after President Trump vowed to stop migrants from entering the U.S. He’s ramped up rhetoric about the types of people seeking asylum and claims many in the caravan are hardened criminals and ready to wreak havoc. He’s also sent thousands of troops to patrol the border.

The border mission was supposed to come to an end on Dec. 15, but on Tuesday, Defense Secretary James Mattis extended the deployments of active duty troops into early 2019.

Currently, there are about 5,600 troops stationed in Texas, Arizona and California. Some troops in California have been helping Border Patrol place concertina wire and construct concrete barriers at border crossing points – something Mattis indicated last week was close to completion.

The controversy at the border – and the administration’s response to it - has polarized much of the country. Last month, images of federal agents firing tear gas on hundreds of migrants created outrage with several high-ranking Democrats blaming the White House. Those complaints were tamped down after data from the Department of Homeland Security revealed that agents also used tear gas at the U.S.-Mexico border dozens of times during the Obama administration.
