"Tijuana first!": protest grow against migrant caravan in Mexico
Tensions have risen in Tijuana as members of the Central American migrant caravan
continue to arrive at the Mexican border city, while US troops continue to tighten security along the frontier.
On Sunday, anti-caravan protesters chanted: “Out Hondurans, we don’t want you here”, “Tijuana first” and “Long live Mexico”, and waved Mexican flags and signs reading “no to the invasion” and “no more migrants”.
While many have welcomed the migrants – as they have the thousands of others who have come to the city over recent years – some Tijuana residents have expressed hostility
to the caravan, amid intense media coverage and aggressive rhetoric from the US president, Donald Trump.
