Central American Migrants ARRIVE at US-Mexico Border in Tijuana — CARAVAN ARRIVES

Central American Migrants ARRIVE at US-Mexico Border in Tijuana — CARAVAN ARRIVES”

A Marine uses concertina wire to fortify the border separating Tijuana, Mexico, and San Diego, near the San Ysidro Port of Entry.

The group arrived in Mexico City last week and voted to walk toward Tijuana, a longer and safer route compared to a shorter trek across the Rio Grande into Texas.

Democratic Senator Brian Schatz of Hawaii has condemned President Donald Trump's deployment of thousands of US troops to the southern border as a "scandal", accusing the USA leader of forcing troops to miss Thanksgiving with their families for no good reason. It is expected to take days or even weeks to arrive at the border.

To tackle any "potential safety and security risk", the CBP also announced lane closures at the San Ysidro and Otay Mesa ports of entry, to install "port hardening infrastructure equipment" in preparation for the migrant caravan arrival.

"CBP has been and will continue to prepare for the potential arrival of thousands of people migrating in a caravan heading towards the border of the United States", said Pete Flores, director of field operations in San Diego.

Most of the roughly 5,000 migrants, most of whom are from Honduras, plan to turn themselves in at the San Ysidro Port of Entry and ask the US government for asylum.

Mr Trump signed a decree that effectively suspended the granting of asylum for those who cross the border illegally, a move that could drastically slow claims at gates of entry.

"Balancing these demands, keeping illicit goods and people out of the country, and managing the influx of Central Americans seeking asylum (along with everything else we do) requires a careful balance of our resources and space", the statement said.

As of Monday evening, most members of the largest caravan remained more than 1,500 miles from Tijuana in the western city of Guadalajara, according to Mexican officials.

Numerous smaller group are LGBTIQ, media reported, who say they parted ways with the main caravan after weeks of what they call discriminatory treatment by local residents and fellow travellers.
