>> Central American migrants facing open hostility from locals in the Mexican border city of Tijuana this week as the Trump administration blocks asylum to anyone entering the United States illegally.>>
> Mexicans have traditionally shown support for migrants but a recent poll showed that over a third of Mexicans wanted the migrants to be sent home.
And we don't want anymore migrants here. Yes, the government has to provide shelter for these people.>> City authorities say around 2,000 migrants are now in Tijuana, many of whom set out from Honduras a month ago to escape violence and poverty.>>
>> Meanwhile President Trump who has demonized the migrants, has sent nearly 6,000 troops to fortify the US-Mexico border. And has threatened to close the frontier entirely to keep the migrants out.>> Yes, sir. We have barbed wire going up.>> Many migrants Reuters spoke to in shelters were unaware of the US government attempts to deter them, and said they were determined to forge ahead however they could.
But others are opting to stay in Mexico which said it is processing 2,600 asylum requests from migrants.
