SDFD, CBP rescue 3 people stuck on border wall in Otay Mesa

The incident happened early Monday morning on Britannia Boulevard and Britannia Court.

SAN DIEGO COUNTY, Calif. — The San Diego Fire Department and U.S. Customs and Border Protection rescued at least three people stuck on the U.S.-Mexico border wall in Otay Mesa.

Firefighters responded to a U.S. Customs and Border Protection backup for three individuals who were stuck at the top of the border wall near Britannia Boulevard and Britannia Court around 7:30 a.m., according to the San Diego Fire and Rescue Department.

All three people are safe and detained in border custody, according to CBP. No other information was immediately available.

The California Welcoming Task Force and other migrant rights group leaders held a rally at the border on Monday morning against Title 42. The group are calling for an end to the policy at the San Ysidro Port of entry. 

The U.S. Justice Department says it plans to appeal the decision and added that the CDC has the authority to end Title 42.
