VIDEO: Dozens of migrants break through border fence in Tijuana, make daring run right past Border Patrol
As the most reliable and balanced news aggregation service on the internet, DML News offers the following information published by NBCSANDIEGO.COM:
A video circulating on social media shows a group of people breaching the U.S.-Mexico border in Tijuana and running into the United States.
The video, posted Thursday evening by Twitter user @MexicanAndyCx, shows a group crowded near the border fence in Playas de Tijuana, a beach community opposite the border barrier from International Friendship Park in the southwestern-most corner of San Diego.
The article goes on to state the following:
One man in the group appears to be cutting a section of mesh in between two slats of the fence. A woman appears to kick the material in the same spot.
Seconds later, people including young children can be seen slipping through the fence and running north on the beach. As dozens more slip through, a marked U.S. Customs and Border Protection SUV turns on its siren and begins driving in the same direction.

The LA Times reported that the migrants were all arrested, except 5 who could not be found:
A group of migrants who breached the U.S.-Mexico border fence by the Pacific Ocean at Playas de Tijuana was detained Thursday by Border Patrol agents in Border Field State Park on the U.S. side.
But the whereabouts are not confirmed of at least five other migrants who crossed over on Wednesday, according to a witness who recorded both the Wednesday and Thursday breaches on video and spoke with some of the migrants.
The group of about 35 people who crossed on Thursday included men, women and children who said they were mostly from Honduras and came to Tijuana in a caravan.
“Mexican Andy” also posted the entire 3-hr video of the incident on YouTube. The migrants break through around the 2-hour 35-minute mark.
Local reporter Alfredo Alvarez posted the following video of the incident:
Alvarez confirmed later on Thursday that 35 migrants were arrested for the stunt.

Paloma Zuniga (Paloma For Trump), a local journalist who holds dual Mexican-American citizenship, warned that the migrants were sending a message to show all other migrants how easy it is to break through the border wall.
