Jacumba, located around 75 miles east of San Diego, has become a common gathering place for these individuals after crossing the border. The area, known for its high desert terrain, often serves as a drop-off point for smugglers and has seen the development of temporary camps.
Organizations like Border Kindness, a non-governmental group, have been active in these areas, providing essential supplies such as food and water, particularly in the challenging landscapes of the San Diego mountains.
A significant event occurred recently in Jacumba Hot Springs, California, where a large group, predominantly from China, was seen crossing through gaps in the border wall. Footage of this event was shared by Jorge Ventura Media, showing these individuals lined up before Border Patrol agents. Reports suggest that in the last 24 hours, over 10,000 individuals have been encountered at the US-Mexico border.
