TIJUANA, MEXICO (CNN) - The first wave of Central American Migrants from the group that formed last month have reached the U.S.-Mexico Border.
Many are looking to cross into the U.S. which is now within sight; however, the Trump administration’s stance has not changed.
About 100 migrant men, women and children have arrived in Tijuana where they wait at a shelter hoping to cross the U.S.
The group is the first of a much larger group to reach the border. Some of the migrants traveled more than 2,000 miles, but the Trump administration has not changed and has assigned 5,900 troops to the border.
Two members of the administration are expected to meet with border officials in Texas.
Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen will tour the northern command while Defense Secretary James Mattis will be in south Texas touring McAllen.
Aid groups say the remaining members of the caravan are still more than 1,000 miles away from the U.S. border.
