TIJUANA – Tijuana has asked the Mexican federal government for $4 million so the city could accommodate thousands of migrants who part of a caravan that for the past month has been making its way to the border.
Almost 2,000 members of the migrant caravan have already descended on this border city – about 5,000 more are expected to arrive in the coming days.
Tijuana has 700 shelter beds that are already full. So a municipal sports complex has turned into a tent city, with shivering migrants hunkering down in tents and sleeping on cots as they wait to determine their next steps.
The article goes on to state the following:
The request for funds from the government comes as tensions between the migrants and local Mexicans has grown tense. On Wednesday, a fight broke out as Mexicans yelled at the migrants: “Go home. We don’t want you here!” Members of the caravan said local police made no attempt to break up the fight.
As many as 4,000 migrants are expected to arrive in Tijuana as soon as Thursday — but with shelters in Tijuana already overflowing, even this first wave is straining the resources in the city of 2.5 million, @CBSNews‘ John Blackstone reports https://t.co/C7fUHU79wv pic.twitter.com/r5PsdwJPxR
