US Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen said in a statement that US authorities would continue to have a "robust" presence along the border and that they would prosecute anyone who damaged federal property or violated US sovereignty. Mud, lice infestations and respiratory infections are rampant.

"San Diego Sector Chief Patrol Agent Rodney Scott said, "It was Border Patrol agents" effort and valued partnership with the Honduran Consulate in Los Angeles that helped us identify a unsafe convicted felon moving amongst the migrant caravan, '" Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Press Secretary Tyler Houlton said in a Friday statement.

Still, some of the migrants were reportedly wary of the Mexican government's efforts.

Earlier this week, Tijuana Mayor Juan Manuel Gastelum said that he can not continue to fund the shelters for migrants without federal support and that the city's 1.7 million residents will face increasing taxes in the future.

Marlen Gallegos, 48, told the Post that she was initially anxious by rumors floating around the sports complex that anyone who went to the new shelter would eventually be deported.

Magallanes said nobody would be forced to move to the new facility, a large building known as El Barretal that has been used for concerts and other events in the past.

LeBron James, Lonzo Ball Key Turnaround In Lakers' Comeback Win Against Mavericks
While The Shining star took the Lakers' latest defeat well, he is not always so easy going when it comes to his team being beaten. The Dallas Mavericks traveled to Los Angeles to face the Lakers on Friday evening riding a three-game winning streak.

But city officials planned to stop offering food and medical services at the Benito Juarez sports complex next to the border on Friday, and any migrants who stay will have to find their own food.

"It's as they said it would be", said Gallegos, who is from Honduras and planned to wait on her application for USA asylum from the new camp. Lazo told officials he had traveled with the migrant caravan through the risky parts of Mexico for safety, according to a press release.

Sunday's arrests were the tipping point of weeks of anticipation as thousands of migrants journeyed from Central America through Mexico in hopes of seeking asylum in the US. The complex was covered with mud with the storm.

Some migrants had found work near the sports complex and were unsure about moving to a place they did not know, though it meant they would have a roof over their heads.

Many plan to seek asylum in the US but may have to wait months because the USA government only processes about 100 of those cases a day at the San Ysidro border crossing in San Diego.
