'Out! Out!': protests grow in Tijuana against migrant caravan

Hundreds of Tijuana residents have congregated to protest the thousands of Central American migrants who have arrived in the Mexican border city hoping for a new life in the US.

Tensions have built as nearly 3,000 migrants from a caravan that has been travelling through Central America poured into Tijuana in recent days. The federal government estimates the number of migrants could soon swell to 10,000.

“We don’t want them in Tijuana,” protesters shouted.

Most of the migrants who have reached Tijuana via caravan in recent days set out more than a month ago from Honduras, a country of nine million people. Dozens of migrants in the caravan who have been interviewed by Associated Press reporters have said they left their country after death threats.
