A member of the now infamous migrant caravan crossed the border illegally and had a child in the U.S.
A young woman who spent weeks traveling with a caravan of Central American migrants while pregnant gave birth in San Diego after illegally crossing the U.S.-Mexico border to request asylum.
Maryuri was more than seven months pregnant when she left Honduras on Oct. 17 with her husband, Miguel, and their 3-year-old son. The family trekked across the countries of Guatemala and Mexico, traveling north by foot and by bus until they reached Tijuana, Baja California, Mexico.
“He was born here in San Diego,” Maryuri said holding her 8-day-old son — a United States citizen by birth — in an interview with NBC 7’s sister station, Telemundo 20.
The already-difficult journey to get to the United States was made even more complicated for the family because of Maryuri’s pregnancy.
The Report went on
According to the Customs and Border Protection officials, on Monday, Nov. 26, agents assigned to patrol the Imperial Beach coast spotted the pregnant woman attempting to cross.
It was about 8 p.m. when the couple asked for asylum from the United States and was taken into custody, they told NBC 7’s sister station, Telemundo 20.
Maryuri said she did not know the next day she would give birth to her second son in a San Diego hospital.
“The day I came across I felt a little pain, but I thought it will be because of my nerves,”
Maryurisaid. The next morning, the pain increased she was taken to a hospital in San Diego, according to CBP.
Of course, the left will still claim we have no problems regarding birthright citizenship for illegals. I have no issue with border patrol making sure that the child was taken care of and helping the mother give birth but the fact that this kid is now a citizen and can receiveÂ welfare benefits is ridiculous.Â Â
