That caravan left San Pedro Sula, Honduras, on October 13 and has covered more than 1,500 kilometers (930 miles) so far.

The incident occurred at the Mexican park adjacent to Border Field State Park on the USA side of the border, which is a popular site for gatherings and protests, DeSio said. They had peeled off from the main caravan after being offered bus transportation and accommodations.

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

Trump turned the caravan into a hot-button issue ahead of last week's USA midterm elections, claiming - without providing evidence - it included "hardened criminals" and "unknown Middle Easterners" who were about to "assault" the United States. "Back there, we are not welcome, we could not leave our houses".

Palencia said city officials are anxious about the larger group of at least 3,000 they expect in the next couple of weeks. The LGBTQ migrants had organized within the caravan itself, electing leaders and taking their own census within the larger group. Gov. Francisco Vega de Lamadrid is expected to travel there on Wednesday for a follow-up meeting Mexico's interior minister, Alfonso Navarrete Prida.

The caravans became a campaign issue in U.S. midterm elections and U.S. President Donald Trump has ordered the deployment of over 5,000 military troops to the border to help fend off the migrants.

"If they arrive at a Port of Entry, they will have to wait in line in keeping with the lawful processes at our ports of entry". All of Central America against one, and one against Central America. Tijuana's head of migrant services said the group arrived Tuesday and immediately went to a stretch of border fence to celebrate. It calls for deportation of caravan members without legal status in Mexico, a measure necessary "to avoid their causing a collapse of our region".

Dozens of LGBTQ migrants settled into a local shelter in Tijuana (located just south of San Diego) on Monday, The Washington Post reported.
