According to the report of the border authorities, there were 110 people who crossed the wall of almost five meters high that divides both countries; minutes after jumping, they were stopped.

The events occurred one day before the arrest of two men of Honduran origin on the banks of the Colorado River who were trying to enter the United States irregularly, and who are allegedly members of the criminal group of the MS-13.
