BBC News reported that hundreds of Central American migrants traveling through Mexico to seek asylum in the United States, have finally reached the Mexican border city of Tijuana.

Reports say that the original group, comprising 5,000 members including LGBTQ migrants, left Honduras a month ago, but has since splintered, remaining only 400.

According to US Defense Secretary James Mattis, he would be going to the US border on Wednesday, which would be his first visit since the thousands of troops were deployed.

Nevertheless, large groups of immigrants are still expected to arrive at the border in the coming days, and President Donald Trump has recently signed an order denying asylum to migrants who cross the US border illegally.
