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

Central American migrants moving as a caravan toward the US border get a free ride on a truck at Ixtlán del Rio, Nayarit, Mexico, Tuesday, Nov. 13, 2018.

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. A Facebook group, Tijuana en Contra de la Caravana Migrante (Tijuana Against the Migrant Caravan) - counted more than 1,000 members. A few jumped or crawled to openings in the fence onto USA soil but quickly ran back as Border Patrol agents approached.

"A few of the migrants left to go buy a couple of things, and they were harassed and insulted in the street", he said.

"We aren't safe here", a woman who lives in the neighborhood said. "People wouldn't let us into trucks, they made us get in the back of the line for showers, they would call us ugly names".

Another 2,000 migrants from the main caravan meanwhile traveled through the night on buses supplied by a Catholic priest, leaping rapidly into northern Mexico after an arduous, month-long trek across the south and center of the country.

Roberto Hernandez, 39, a bricklayer from San Pedro Sula, Honduras, was finally able to get a shot of antibiotics for the fever he has had for two weeks. The caravan arrived at the city of Guadalajara late November 12, but were asked to move on early on November 13 and were provided transport out of the city.

"We are waiting for our representative", the unidentified migrant said.

Now they have managed to outrun the caravan and have practically reached the USA border. People walked, hitchhiked, and took a bus, and the LGBTQ migrants faced harassment from other travelers.

Rueda said that state and local authorities want Mexico's federal government to petition USA authorities to speed up processing of those who present themselves at the ports of entry.

Other migrants, however, were still stranded in the west-central state of Jalisco because they couldn't get rides.

"There was never any suggestion of supporting them economically", Sandoval said.

Large groups of migrants have been gathering on the beach at the border fence that separates Mexico from California, shouting "We're not criminals!" in a pointed message to Trump. The migrants have come about 1,500 miles (2,400 kilometers) since they started out in Honduras around October 13.

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

The 5,000 migrants, who say they are fleeing persecution, poverty and violence in their home countries of Honduras, Guatemala and El Salvador, have largely been making their journey on foot. Twenty-five asylum seekers were allowed on Monday and 60 more on Tuesday.
