    MEXICO CITY (Reuters) - A group of 50 Central American migrants who set out from southern Mexico in late March have reached the U.S. border, having endured the long journey despite threats by President Donald Trump to secure the border with National Guard personnel.

    Since peaking at around 1,500 people, the so-called migrant "caravan" has dwindled under pressure from Trump and Mexican migration authorities, who vowed to separate those migrants with a right to stay in Mexico from those who did not.

    Some of those migrants began arriving in the Mexican border city of Tijuana on Wednesday and have requested asylum in the United States.


    "Since yesterday, some began to cross into the United States to turn themselves in from Tijuana and request asylum. We understand more of (the migrants) will do the same," said Jose Maria Garcia, director of Juventud 2000, an organization dedicated to assisting migrants.


    He said more migrants, many of whom are stranded in Mexico's central states, are expected to arrive in the coming days.


    "We will continue to receive them and it will be up to them if they stay in the country or leave," Garcia said.


    Honduras, El Salvador and Guatemala are among the most violent and impoverished countries in the Americas, prompting many people to leave in search of a better life.


    Every year, thousands of migrants -especially Central Americans- venture to cross Mexico and reach the United States, often risking their lives along the way.

    Caravan migrants start to reach US-Mexico border

    About 50 people arrive in Tijuana, Mexico

    MEXICO CITY (CNN) - The first migrants from a caravan that sparked the ire of President Donald Trump have started arriving at the US-Mexico border and asking for asylum, advocates say.

    About 50 Central Americans have arrived in Tijuana, Mexico, according to Juventud 2000, an organization that assists migrants in that border city.


    Of those, about 10 have turned themselves in to US authorities at the border. Others are waiting for a larger contingent from the caravan to arrive before they head north, Juventud 2000 Director Jose Maria Garcia Lara said.


    There are many questions looming about the group's next steps. Chief among them: What will happen once larger numbers reach the border?


    Many of the migrants say they're fleeing violence and poverty in Central America. They're part of a caravan that convened at Mexico's southern border weeks ago, then trekked through the country as part of an annual pilgrimage organized to bring light to migrants' plights.


    This year's journey got far more attention than usual, starting with a series of tweets on a Sunday morning from Trump. By the end of that week, Trump had ordered National Guard troops to deploy to the border in a memo warning of a security crisis there.


    While political pressure over the caravan mounted north of the border, in Mexico the migrants continued their journey.


    Some individuals and smaller groups have split off along the way. And the largest contingent is much smaller than it was at the outset. About 1,200 migrants from Central America began the journey. After a recent head count by organizers, the group numbered closer to 600.


    The larger group is still days away from the border, according to organizers.


    But some migrants from the caravan have started trickling into Tijuana, according to Juventud 2000, which is working with caravan organizers to help provide shelter to the arriving migrants.


    The first caravan members arrived sporadically last week. Then a group of about 25 people arrived this week, Garcia Lara said.

    @MarkSKrikorian



    Every asylum applicant should be given a choice: Stay in detention for the entire duration of your case or wait in Mexico for a decision. No one, under any circumstances, should be released into the U.S.

    Someone needs to draw a red line across which no one will be allowed to cross. This nonsense has gone on long enough. Hopefully, enough Americans will be outraged and complain to our so-called representatives. THIS AFFRONT TO OUR IMMIGRATION LAWS HAS TO STOP NOW!!

    Seeking asylum, Central American migrants await fate as they approach Tijuana border


    A group of Central Americans, most from Honduras and El Salvador, waited early Wednesday morning outside the San Ysidro Port of Entry, preparing to ask for asylum. (Alejandro Tamayo / The San Diego Union Tribune)

    Quick read:

    • A caravan of Central American migrants is on its way to Tijuana.
    • Some 200 members of the Pueblo Sin Fronteras caravan are preparing to ask for U.S. asylum.
    • Many are Hondurans who say they are fleeing gangs who threaten to kill and extort them.
    • Some from the caravan began arriving in Tijuana last week, mostly women and children, and began presenting themselves at the border.
    • The caravan is arriving as Tijuana has seen a small but growing number of Central American migrants in recent months.
