A convicted killer in Honduras and an MS-13 gang member also from Honduras were arrested in California last weekend after crossing the border illegally, Border Patrol said Friday.

With the added large numbers of migrants coming from Central America to seek legal USA entry and claim asylum, Perez said, the general two days it takes CBP in San Diego to process people could increase to five or six weeks.

Thousands of migrants have arrived in Tijuana in recent weeks.

After further investigation, it was discovered the illegal alien was in Honduran prison for almost two decades after being convicted of murder. "At the station, agents discovered documents indicating one of the men, 46 year-old Miguel Angel Ramirez, was recently released from prison in Honduras".

Cold gives way to rain and gales
Storm Diana is expected to move away during Wednesday evening, although showers are likely to persist into Thursday, November 29. Some roads and bridges may close. "Rain and the strongest winds will gradually retreat to the North East".

They were forced back by US Border Patrol agents, who fired tear gas and rubber bullets.

"On Nov. 24th, around 11 P.M., agents detected three people crossing the border illegally approximately one-mile east of the San Ysidro port of entry".

On Tuesday, Tijuana Mayor Juan Manuel Gastelum said the city is spending about $30,000 a day to house the migrants and funding is running out. "We are now predictably seeing members of the caravan - which includes criminals - show up at the border and claim asylum".

That's when he revealed he was a Honduran citizen and part of MS-13, CBP said.

Over 100 scientists say baby gene editing is ‘crazy’
The team led by Jiankui He focused on removing a gene called CCR5, critical for the HIV virus to enter into the cells. The university's biology academic committee said He's work "seriously violates academic ethics and academic norms".

The young Honduran man was anxious and you could see it on his face: Clutching his 1-year-old son, he looked back apprehensively toward the barrier he just crossed.

Administration officials have portrayed the caravan as a lawless, violent mob, saying there are some 600 people in the group who have a criminal history.

"The fact that Border Patrol arrested a murderer within the first caravan-related apprehensions at our southern border proves how real the threat of the caravan is to our national security and public safety", said department spokesman Tyler Q. Houlton.

Case against Apple over app commission likely to proceed
Antitrust cases sometimes, but not always, divide the Supreme Court along ideological lines. But it was not just the court's liberals who seemed skeptical of Apple's argument.
