    SAN YSIDRO, Calif. (KGTV) – A “large-scale” training exercise on Thanksgiving afternoon will cause some delays at the San Ysidro Port of Entry, according to Customs and Border Protection officials.

    CBP officials said the readiness exercise, which will be highly visible to the public, is scheduled for 2 p.m. and should last about 10 minutes. Details on the operation were not released.

    Officials said of the exercise: “CBP is continually assessing the capabilities of our facilities and have been making -- and will continue to make -- necessary preparations. These include participating in operational readiness exercises and the mobilization of resources as needed to ensure the facilitation of lawful trade and travel.”

    Additionally, CBP officials said they were "reconfiguring" the San Ysidro Port of Entry to open extra lanes.

    Meanwhile, U.S. military troops stationed at various points along the southern border have permission to use lethal force against migrants, if necessary.

    The memo signed by President Trump states personnel may perform “military protective activities,” but only if the Secretary of Defense deems it necessary to ensure protection of federal agents.

    As of Thursday morning, more than 4,000 migrants from a caravan that began in Central America are in Tijuana, with more expected later in the evening or Friday.

    "REMAIN IN MEXICO" plan

    The Trump administration, according to a Washington Post report, is planning a change in policy that would require immigrants from Central America to wait in Mexico while their claims for asylum are being processed.

    The Post, citing Homeland Security memos, reported asylum seekers who cannot establish a "reasonable fear" of persecution in Mexico will not be allowed into the U.S.

    Current screening procedures require asylum seekers to establish a fear of returning to their home countries.

    The new policy, according to the Post report, could take effect as soon as Friday.

    A Homeland Security spokesperson said there were no immediate plans to implement new measures.

    Additionally, CBP officials said they were "reconfiguring" the San Ysidro Port of Entry to open extra lanes.

    Officials did not say if the exercise was directly related to the migrant caravan that has gathered across the border in Tijuana.

    During the drill, a person who crossed the border into the U.S. told 10News he saw hundreds of people he believed to be affiliated with the migrant caravan gathered at the pedestrian crossing on the Mexico side and holding a demonstration.

    Meanwhile, U.S. military troops stationed at various points along the southern border have permission to use lethal force against migrants, if necessary.

    The memo signed by President Trump states personnel may perform “military protective activities,” but only if the Secretary of Defense deems it necessary to ensure protection of federal agents.
