The migrant caravan have reached the Mexican border city of Tijuana; migrant caravan traveled through Mexico to look for asylum in the US.
The caravan group of 400, who include LGBTQ migrants, they left the bigger caravan of 5,000 people in Mexico City. US Defence Secretary James Mattis said he would go for first visit to the US-Mexico border on Wednesday since thousands of troops were moved there.
Larger groups are also expected to reach their destination at the border in the coming days. The migrants caravan of 5000 have largely been making their passage on foot, according to them they are fleeing harassment, poverty and violence in their home countries of Honduras, Guatemala and El Salvador.
The smaller group of 400, which reached Tijuana on Tuesday, did so aboard a fleet of buses. They further joined a smaller group of about 80 migrants who reached Tijuana, the border city on Sunday.
According to the media, many of the smaller group are LGBTQ who say they separated their ways with the main caravan group after weeks of what they call biased treatment by local residents and fellow travelers.
Undeterred by a harder US stance against them, the migrants still continuing and enthusiastic about seeking asylum and have said they will continue the journey so that they can claim asylum.
On 13 October, the journey began from the city of San Pedro Sula in Honduras which means they will have to walk about 4,800km (2,983 miles) and the route was very dangerous such as attack by criminal gangs.
