As apparent chaos within the border continues, the mayor of Tijuana is taking steps as a measure to end the migrant issue.
He declared a major international humanitarian crisis on Thursday, appealing for help over the situation.
This, as persons in the migrant caravan are increasingly pushing to input the U.S. despite threats from President Trump to shutdown the southern border.

Mexican police in Tijuana said several grouped about 150 Central Americans broke off through the larger group and came within 500 feet in the U.S.
The migrants reportedly approached armed guards while waving white flags to signify they are peacefully seeking asylum.
In a press conference, the mayor slammed the Mexican administration for not doing enough to pay the problem.
“I will not compromise people services with the city. I’m not going to spend the income of the person of Tijuana, and I’m not likely to reduce Tijuana since we didn’t placed in both these years.” – Juan Manuel Gastelum,?mayor of Tijuana
His sentiment echoes concerns expressed by President Trump across the inability within the U.S. to handle the large waves of migrants seeking asylum.
