Migrant Caravan Suffering Mass Outbreaks of Tuberculosis, Skin Infections

Migrant Caravan Suffering Mass Outbreaks of Tuberculosis, Skin Infections

No criminal charges will be filed against any of the 42 people associated with a caravan of Central American migrants who were arrested in a clash that ended with US authorities firing tear gas into Mexico to counter rock throwers, The Associated Press has learned.

Sunday's incident occurred at the border in Tijuana, where thousands of caravan members have been arriving in recent weeks after fleeing poverty and violence in Central America.

After further investigation, it was discovered the illegal alien was in Honduran prison for almost two decades after being convicted of murder.

Border Patrol agents questioned the man.

Agents working the El Centro Sector crossed paths with the man eastward of the Calexico Port of Entry in California on Saturday around 6 p.m.

US top court leans toward allowing Apple App Store antitrust suit
This is against a group of iPhone owners who claim Apple forces them to overpay for apps by forbidding rivals to the App Store. In allowing the suit, a federal appeals court said the transaction is a simple one in which consumers buy directly from Apple.

CPB said that while interviewing the men in custody, agents discovered that one man, 46-year-old Miguel Angel Ramirez, was released from a prison in Honduras four months earlier and had been held there for a murder conviction.

Mr Trump threatened to close the border permanently after the migrant caravan reached the border.

The young Honduran man was anxious and you could see it on his face: Clutching his 1-year-old son, he looked back apprehensively toward the barrier he just crossed.

Migrants from the caravan staying in Tijuana, Mexico and awaiting entry into the U.S. are suffering from all kinds of illnesses, ranging from ordinary respiratory infections, to unsafe diseases such as tuberculosis and HIV/AIDS, the city's health department reported on 29 November.

"As President [Donald] Trump and Secretary [Kirstjen] Nielsen warned, over the last few weeks we have identified over 600 known criminals and gang members in the caravan". The fact that Border Patrol arrested a murderer within the first caravan-related apprehensions at our southern border proves how real the threat of the caravan is to our national security and public safety.
