This is the shocking moment a boat full of undocumented migrants landed on a beach in San Diego before running into the wealthy La Jolla neighborhood. More than 42,000 asylum seekers were released in San Diego from October through December, 2023 - an average of 637 a day, as reported by The San Diego Union-Tribute. That number does not include migrants who cross illegally, like those seen landing on the La Jolla beach. Last year, over 300 migrants were temporarily moved into the San Diego airport as shelters ran out of room. Similar to other US border cities, about 95 percent of migrants in San Diego quickly move to other parts of the country.
