Police reported about 350 migrants arrived in the Baja California border city of Tecate, near Tijuana on Tuesday.

US military and border protection agents have extended razor wire and erected barricades at the point of entry near San Diego, California, as the first groups of migrants arrived at the US-Mexico border. A few jumped or crawled to openings in the fence onto US soil but quickly ran back as Border Patrol agents approached.

United States authorities closed down several lanes of traffic at two border crossings from Tijuana to California on Tuesday so that soldiers can install barbed wire fencing and barricades to reinforce security.

Central American migrants moving as a caravan toward the US border get a free ride on a truck at Ixtlán del Rio, Nayarit, Mexico, Tuesday, Nov. 13, 2018.

Beginning 8 a.m. Tuesday, the agency will shut down three northbound lanes at the San Ysidro Port of Entry, which has about 17 total lanes, and one lane at the Otay Mesa Port of Entry, which has about a dozen lanes.

On Thursday, the group voted to proceed from Mexico City, where they'd been gathered several days, to Tijuana, opting for the longer but less unsafe route.

"Balancing these demands, keeping illicit goods and people out of the country, and managing the influx of Central Americans seeking asylum (along with everything else we do) requires a careful balance of our resources and space", the statement said.

About 1,300 migrants in a second caravan were resting at a stadium in Mexico City, where the first group had stayed last week.

Numerous smaller group are LGBTIQ, media reported, who say they parted ways with the main caravan after weeks of what they call discriminatory treatment by local residents and fellow travellers.

They thought other buses would be waiting for them to take them through hurricane-ravaged Nayarit to the neighboring state of Sinaloa, farther north.

But migrants planning to seek asylum in the United States said they were undeterred by the crackdown.

Most of the troops are in Texas, including in the Rio Grande Valley, the southern border's most heavily trafficked section.

Some small groups had broken off along the way and went on ahead, either using buses, trains or long-haul truck rides to get to the border quicker.

He said: "It's not possible to live in Honduras and provide for your family".
