Dramatic images from the Mexican border town of Tijuana show migrants from the Central American caravan crawl underneath the fence and into the United States on Tuesday.

U.S. Customs and Border Protection said Tuesday that the San Diego sector has experienced a ‘slight uptick’ in families entering the U.S. illegally and turning themselves in to agents since the caravan of Central American migrants arrived in Tijuana two weeks ago.

In recent days, the migrants have either scaled the border fence or found a small space a few inches high underneath and wiggled through.

The migrants are then taken into custody by border patrol officers.

Other images show Chinese tourists taking photos of the fence, which has been in the news in recent weeks.

Thousands of migrants on the Mexico side of the border are living in crowded tent cities in Tijuana after a grueling weekslong journey through Mexico on foot and hitching rides with the goal of applying for asylum in the U.S.

Frustrated with the long wait to apply, with the U.S. processing 100 requests at most each day, some migrants are trying to cross over clandestinely.

Rachel Rivera, 19, told The Associated Press that Honduras had become unlivable.

Moments before flattening herself under the fence, she said she was slipping through to the U.S. in an attempt to ‘give a better life’ to her daughter Charlot.

An AP video journalist also witnessed more than two dozen migrants scale a fence between Mexico and the U.S. on Monday evening.

Once across, entire families raised their hands before border patrol agents who arrived swiftly in white trucks.

It’s unclear where the families were taken from there.

On a typical day before the caravan arrived in Tijuana, U.S. border patrol agents in the San Diego area detained about 120 or so people trying to cross the border illegally from Mexico.
