  • Authorities clashed with groups that are believed to be
    from the Central American migrant caravan Sunday after a group
    estimated to be in the hundreds stormed a US port of
    entry.

    southern US border. 

Authorities clashed with members of a migrant caravan after a
group estimated to be in the hundreds stormed a US port of entry,
according to video and photos posted to social media from
journalists on the ground. 

The migrants left a makeshift shelter in Tijuana to head for San
Ysidro, the largest port of entry on the southern US
border. 

After police blocked a bridge, migrants crossed the Tijuana River
on foot before approaching the port. 

Authorities closed the port of entry after the clash, and several
tweets from US Customs and Border Protection
said pedestrian and vehicle traffic was suspended.
