A Honduran mother said that she was pressured to join the border rush on November 25 that culminated in American Border Patrol officers shooting tear gas into the mob to disperse them.

USA authorities are working on a new system to better record evidence if similar circumstances arise in the future, the official said.
Overcrowding along with cooler temperatures and rain has already helped spread illness among migrants, including flu-like sicknesses, lice and chicken pox, according to city officials who declined to be named because they were not authorized to speak to the media.
"Depending on their country of citizenship and their case's final disposition, the Border Patrol may turn those people over to Immigration and Customs Enforcement", said spokesman Ralph DeSio.
He said he joined the caravan to find better job prospects in the United States. Asylum seekers are often released in the USA pending the outcome of their cases in immigration court.
