    All northbound lanes of San Ysidro Port of Entry closed

    All northbound lanes of San Ysidro Port of Entry temporarily closed

    Posted 4:54 AM, November 19, 2018, by Malik Earnest and FOX 5 Digital Team, Updated at 07:04AM, November 19, 2018
    SAN DIEGO -- All northbound lanes at the San Ysidro Port of Entry were closed early Monday morning, according to U.S. Customs and Border Protection officials.

    At about 3:30 a.m., the San Ysidro Port of Entry could be seen lined with members of the military blocking many northbound lanes.




    "[We] have temporarily suspended vehicle processing for northbound travelers at the San Ysidro port of entry Monday morning to position additional port hardening materials," according to border officials. "After the materials are in position, CBP will resume processing northbound vehicle traffic in select lanes at the border crossing."

    Southbound lanes into Mexico were not affected by the closure.
    As of 6:30 a.m., a couple of lanes reopened and traffic was slowly moving through to San Diego.
    It is not known when all of the lanes would reopen.
    CBP told FOX 5 they were adding the extra security measures in response to the migrant caravan.

    Tensions remained high in Tijuana and at the U.S.- Mexico border Sunday, where thousands of members of a migrant caravan began arriving in the past week planning to seek asylum in the United States
    About 2,400 migrants, mostly from Central America, have arrived in Tijuana since last Sunday.

    On Sunday, two dueling demonstrations were planned -- one demanding the migrants not engage in protests that can close roadways or confrontations with American officials that can cause the closure of ports of entry, and the other criticizing what some perceive as discrimination against the migrants.
    U.S. Customs and Border Protection agents have slowly filtered through asylum claims, accepting roughly 100 each day and some from as long as six weeks ago. It is unknown how long the majority of immigrants will have to wait to have their asylum claims managed.

    U.S. bolsters border crossing as migrant influx fuels tension in Mexico

    Nov. 19, 2018 AP

    TIJUANA, Mexico -- The United States closed off northbound traffic for several hours at the busiest border crossing with Mexico to install new security barriers on Monday, a day after hundreds of Tijuana residents protested against the presence of thousands of Central American migrants.

    The U.S. also closed one of two pedestrian crossings at the San Ysidro crossing in a move apparently aimed at preventing any mass rush of migrants across the border.

    The installation of movable, wire-topped barriers threatens to complicate life for Mexicans using San Ysidro, where about 110,000 people enter the U.S. every day in 40,000 vehicles.

    Long lines backed up in Tijuana, where many people have to cross the border to work on the U.S. side.

    Such inconveniences prompted by the arrival of the migrant caravan may have played a role in Sunday's protests, when about 400 Tijuana residents waved Mexican flags, sang the Mexican national anthem and chanted "Out! Out!" referring to the migrant caravan that arrived in the border city last week.

    Tensions have built as nearly 3,000 migrants from the caravan poured into Tijuana in recent days after more than a month on the road -- and with many more months likely ahead of them while they seek asylum in the U.S. The federal government estimates the number of migrants could soon swell to 10,000.

    U.S. border inspectors are processing only about 100 asylum claims a day at Tijuana's main crossing to San Diego. Asylum seekers register their names in a tattered notebook managed by migrants themselves that had more than 3,000 names even before the caravan arrived.

    Some Tijuana residents supported the migrants, but others accused the migrants of being messy, ungrateful and a danger to Tijuana. They also complained about how the caravan forced its way into Mexico, calling it an "invasion." And they voiced worries that their taxes might be spent to care for the group.

    "We don't want them in Tijuana," protesters shouted.

    Juana Rodriguez, a housewife, said the government needs to conduct background checks on the migrants to make sure they don't have criminal records.

    A block away, fewer than a dozen Tijuana residents stood with signs of support for the migrants. Keyla Zamarron, a 38-year-old teacher, said the protesters don't represent her way of thinking as she held a sign saying: "Childhood has no borders."

    Most of the migrants who have reached Tijuana via caravan in recent days set out more than a month ago from Honduras, a country of 9 million people. Dozens of migrants in the caravan who have been interviewed by Associated Press reporters have said they left their country after death threats.

    But the journey has been hard, and many have turned around.

    Alden Rivera, the Honduran ambassador in Mexico, told the AP on Saturday that 1,800 Hondurans have returned to their country since the caravan first set out on Oct. 13, and that he hopes more will make that decision. "We want them to return to Honduras," said Rivera.

    The migrants' expected long stay in Tijuana has raised concerns about the ability of the border city of more than 1.6 million people to handle the influx.

    Tijuana Mayor Juan Manuel Gastelum has called the migrants' arrival an "avalanche" that the city is ill-prepared to handle, calculating that they will be in Tijuana for at least six months as they wait to file asylum claims. Gastelum has appealed to the federal government for more assistance to cope with the influx.

    Tijuana officials converted a municipal gymnasium and recreational complex into a shelter to keep migrants out of public spaces. The city's privately run shelters have a maximum capacity of 700. The municipal complex can hold up to 3,000.

    At the municipal shelter, Josue Caseres, 24, expressed dismay at the protests against the caravan. "We are fleeing violence," said the entertainer from Santa Barbara, Honduras. "How can they think we are going to come here to be violent?"

    Elsewhere on Sunday, a group of 200 migrants headed north from El Salvador, determined to also find safety in numbers to reach the U.S.

    Edwin Alexander Gomez, 20, told AP in San Salvador that he wants to work construction in New York, where he hears the wages are better and the city is safer.

    U.S. President Donald Trump, who sought to make the caravan a campaign issue in the midterm elections, used Twitter on Sunday to voice support for the mayor of Tijuana and try to discourage the migrants from seeking entry to the U.S.

    Trump wrote that like Tijuana, "the U.S. is ill-prepared for this invasion, and will not stand for it. They are causing crime and big problems in Mexico. Go home!"

    He followed that tweet by writing: "Catch and Release is an obsolete term. It is now Catch and Detain. Illegal Immigrants trying to come into the U.S.A., often proudly flying the flag of their nation as they ask for U.S. Asylum, will be detained or turned away."

    San Ysidro Port of Entry lanes reopen after temporarily shutdown

    POSTED 4:54 AM, NOVEMBER 19, 2018, BY MALIK EARNEST AND FOX 5 DIGITAL TEAM, UPDATED AT 10:51AM, NOVEMBER 19, 2018

    SAN DIEGO -- All northbound lanes at the San Ysidro Port of Entry were closed early Monday morning to allow border agents to add more protective barriers, according to U.S. Customs and Border Protection officials.

    At about 3:15 a.m., the San Ysidro Port of Entry could be seen lined with members of the military blocking many northbound lanes.


    "[We] have temporarily suspended vehicle processing for northbound travelers at the San Ysidro port of entry Monday morning to position additional port hardening materials," according to border officials.

    "After the materials are in position, CBP will resume processing northbound vehicle traffic in select lanes at the border crossing."



    Southbound lanes leading into Mexico and the Pedestrian West facility were not affected by the closure.


    As of 6:30 a.m., lanes reopened and traffic was slowly moving into San Diego.


    "CBP is again processing northbound vehicle traffic at San Ysidro with select lanes remaining closed. The San Ysidro Pedestrian East facility is also open for northbound traveler processing," according to CBP spokeswoman Jackie Wasiluk's release sent at 7:20 a.m.


    The lanes were closed to install additional port hardening materials at the port of entry, to include jersey barriers and concertina wire, to prepare for the potential arrival of thousands of people migrating in a caravan heading towards the border of the United States, according to CBP spokesman Mike Niezgoda.


    "In the early morning hours, CBP officials received reports of groups of persons from the caravan gathering in the city of Tijuana for a possible attempt or attempts to rush illegally through the port of entry instead of presenting themselves as required to a CBP officer," Niezgoda said.

    Pete Flores, director of CBP Field Operations, said his agents will not allow unlawful entry into the U.S. and they needed to get ahead of a potential flood of people coming to the border.

    "Waiting until a large group of persons mass at the border to attempt an illegal crossing is too late for us; we need to be prepared prior to when they arrive at the border crossing," Flores said.

    Take a look at the new wiring that was just installed early this morning. This is part of the reason why customs agents say they had to shut down northbound lanes of traffic at the #PortOfEntry #SanYsidro @CBS8 @News8 @DeskEight
