Hopping the wall into Trump's US, in under two minutes

Cecilia was initially anxious she, her husband, and her two young children would be sent home when Donald Trump, the US President, called for the caravan to be stopped in southern.

With the help of three other men - two to give him a boost and one to stand as a lookout - the young man jumped the rusty metal barrier that separates Ciudad Juarez from Sunland Park, New Mexico.

"He couldn't get over!" She could see only one option.

The official statement of the white house has been: "We are going to protect our border with our military".

A caravan of more than 1,100 Central American migrants continues to make its way north through Mexico.

The anti-immigration president said the National Guard deployment would range from 2,000 to 4,000 troops, and he would "probably" keep many personnel on the border until his wall is built - spelling out a lengthy mission.

The caravan in Mexico, which numbered more than 1,000 Hondurans, Salvadorans and Nicaraguans, began breaking up after the activists organizing it said it had abandoned its goal of reaching the United States border and would end its activities with a rally in Mexico City.

"These are bilateral programs that build Mexican capacity in a way that benefits our security", said an official from the State Department's Bureau of International Narcotics and Law Enforcement Affairs, which has budgeted $75 million to install the scanning equipment at immigration jails across Mexico and deliver mobile terminals that can transmit biometric data from nearly anywhere. But some have already made it to the border, according to Javier Calvillo, a Catholic priest who runs a shelter for migrants in Ciudad Juarez.

"The decision to demobilize a caravan isn't in the hands of the government, it is up to the migrants themselves", he said.

President Trump recently blasted Mexico as doing "very little, if not nothing" to stop the flow of people across Mexican territory en route to the United States.
