Two Democratic lawmakers have been camped out since Monday with a group of Central American asylum seekers who made their way to the U.S.-Mexico border town of Tijuana, to help escort some of the most vulnerable to a U.S. port of entry.
Among that group were Maria Meza and her five children—the Honduran family pictured in a photo that shook the world, showing Meza and her children, with two still in diapers, fleeing tear gas fired by U.S. Border Patrol agents last month.
After waiting with Meza and her family for seven hours, Democratic Representative Jimmy Gomez of Los Angeles told Newsweek that Meza and her children were finally able to make their asylum claims at the U.S. border on Monday evening at the Otay Mesa port of entry in San Diego.
