This week dozens of immigrants from Central America walked up to the Dennis DeConcini Port of Entry in Nogales and requested asylum. The men, women and children said they did not travel with an organized caravan.
Kendal Blust, a reporter for the Nogales International, was among the first to report their stories. She told Lorraine Rivera what she learned about their reasons for seeking asylum and their plans after arriving at the border.
In a statement to Arizona 360, Customs and Border Protection said the Department of Homeland Security does not "currently have a policy of separating families at the border for deterrence purposes."
