More than 450 people from a caravan that traveled from Central America to enter the United States actually made it into the country, The Washington Times reported Tuesday.
Of the total, 122 were arrested for jumping the border, while more than 330 others showed up at official ports of entry and applied for asylum, officials told the House Homeland Security Committee, the news outlet reported.
According to The Washington Times, the Justice Department announced just 11 prosecutions in California; U.S. Customs and Border Protection said there were a few others in Texas.
The caravan began as about 1,500 people from Central America making their way north through Mexico to the United States. Some got turned back in Mexico, others were granted protections in Mexico, but nearly 600 reached Tijuana, and of those, more than 450 made it into the United States, the Washington Times reported.
