Tourists visiting Southern California and those visiting Mexico for the Thanksgiving weekend should be aware of this escalation at the U.S. Mexican border. Watching the situation at the busiest border crossing between the United States and Mexico between  Tijuana / San Diego in California, the U.S. closes San Ysidro entry point between San Diego and Tijuana as migrant caravan approaches, tear gas was reportedly fired into the crowd.

“Hearing that we are tear-gassing children to prevent them from trying to enter our country. I am so ashamed,” says Beth Talmage on eTN Twitter.

US Customs and Border Protection tweeted it had closed road and pedestrian bridges in both directions at the San Ysidro port of entry, one of the largest land border crossings between San Diego and Tijuana, Mexico.

According to the US Customs & Border Protection pedestrian crossings at the San Ysidro port of entry are also suspended at both the East and West facility, northbound vehicle traffic processing at San Ysidro is currently suspended.

Southbound lanes into Mexico at the San Ysidro port of entry are currently closed.

The closures come as around 500 migrants overwhelmed federal and local Mexican police blockades and rushed toward the US border near Tijuana, Mexico.
According to CNN reports, the crowds are made up of men, women and a lot of children.
Because the regular border crossings were closed, the migrants headed for the cargo area where the railroad crosses.

According to a report in El Sol de  Tijuana.127 migrants have been arrested in Mexico for various offenses, some of them violent. Also, Tijuana residents are starting to question the “open borders” narrative.

This is all happening at a time the Trump government said an agreement was made with Mexican authorities. Mexico is saying now, no such agreement was made.

Footage posted by ITV correspondent Emma Murphy also showed several U.S. Border Patrol helicopters flying low overhead near the Mexican side of the border.

eTN Reader Luke Helms tweeted:”I’m not in the camp that believes this migrant caravan is only composed of dangerous, possibly radicalized men. I’m certain there are women and children seeking refuge. But this is ridiculous. You can’t illegally cross a border and not expect to be reprimanded. “
