Although the migrant group agreed to leave Friday morning to Queretaro, a city about 139 miles north of Mexico City, they decided to stay one more day.

On Friday, smaller groups of migrants decided to leave the city and continue their journey to the border.

Though it is not clear which route they will take, the group agreed to head towards the Tijuana port of entry, deeming it safer for children.

Reaching Tijuana could take about a week depending on their mode of travel and their route.
