THE US border has been closed between San Diego and Tijuana with riot police swooping after the migrant caravan saw scores of people rush to the checkpoint.
“In addition, northbound vehicle traffic processing at San Ysidro is currently suspended.
“Pedestrian crossings at the San Ysidro port of entry are also suspended at both the East and West facility.”
Migrants were heard chanting “the town united will never be defeated" as many marched towards the border holding banners and placards attacking US President Donald Trump.
The Mayor of Tijuana said: "I will not allow our bilateral relationship to be fractured by the bad actions of the migrant caravan.
"Many Tijuanans work, study, and visit the United States in healthy peace.”
