A Tijuana police patrol officer sees him for a few minutes in the dark of night. This is a freelance photo taken by a local photographer Reuters.

We are on the Pacific side. So the last outpost before the big tab was Tijuana. Behind this seven-meter-high barrier are the beaches of California and San Diego in the background. It was only a few hours later that the body was found to belong Jose Ramon n., 43, Cuban. Another immigrant with severe hypothermia confirmed his identity.
Both tried to swim. They saw that barrier a hundred meters into the sea, and they said to themselves: Come, let us do it. The sea, if you challenge it, betrays you. You look at the ground, you sink, you firmly believe that the stud stroke is enough. If you were born and live on an island and play like Cuba, you can jump and swim.

Frustration and big mistake. “People think the barrier is short and they believe it doesn’t take long to overcome it,” he recalled. Impartial Secretary of Defense and Civil Defense of Tijuana, Cruz Camerena of Puntarenas. “There are extraordinary currents and eddies along the wall that make it difficult for even a good swimmer to pass through. Eventually they surround you and drown you.”
Jose Ramon drowned last Tuesday. This is not the first. This happens often, but the news does not always appear in the media.

Most of the immigrants are deported to Mexico. Chapter 42, passed by Trump, is in effect. Children, including accompanying parents, are excluded.
