Caravan of migrants and refugees arrive in the border city of Tijuana

Nation & World

Some 400 central Americans who broke away from the main caravan of migrants and refugees in Mexico City arrived in the border city of Tijuana by bus Tuesday.

As members of the caravan arrived planning to seek asylum, U.S. military reinforced security measures, laying barbed wire and erecting barricades.

The administration of President Donald Trump has taken a firm stance against the caravan, which began its journey north on October 13th and briefly clashed with security forces in the south of Mexico early on its route.

President Trump signed a decree last week 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.
