Over 400 of the first migrant caravan reach Tijuana and climbed the border fence. Thousands more are expected as U.S. troops barricade ports of entry.
After traveling for over a month about 400 members of the first caravan of the Central American Exodus reached the United States border with Mexico in Tijuana.
The U.S. administration of Donald Trump is using rhetoric and military force to deter the asylum seekers. Most recently by ordering troops to install reams of barbed wire over existing fences at the San Ysidro port of entry in San Diego.
Thousands of Central American asylum seekers are expected to arrive at the border in the coming days as they travel north up Mexico’s coast.
The second through fourth caravans are catching up, traveling through the Mexican states of Puebla and Veracruz.
