Secretary Mattis to visit US-Mexico border

Proclamation expected to withstand legal challenges

Tijuana is at the westerly end of the border, about 38 kilometres from San Diego, California.

Three northbound lanes will be closed at San Ysidro and another lane at Otay Mesa will also be closed to install "port hardening infrastructure equipment", the agency said in a statement.

"CBP has been and will continue to prepare for the potential arrival of thousands of people migrating in a caravan heading toward the border of the United States", CBP's field operations director in San Diego, Pete Flores, said in a statement. 'These preparations include training exercises, deploying additional CBP personnel, and partnering with the US military to harden our ports of entry and the border area between those legal crossings into the U.S'.

On Thursday, 1,100 Marines from Marine Corps Base Camp Pendleton were deployed to the U.S. -Mexico border to support border security, mainly by installing concertina wire and pre-positioning jersey barriers, barricades and fencing under Operation Secure Line.

Approximately 100 of an estimated 11,000 migrants, less than 1 percent of those US officials are tracking across four groups, may reach the USA border south of San Diego on Sunday.

A USA official speaking on the condition of anonymity confirmed to ABC News that border authorities are girding for the first group of about 100 to arrive in Tijuana by the end of the weekend.

United States military forces have reinforced security measures at the country's southern border, laying barbed wire and erecting barricades as hundreds of Central American migrants planning to seek asylum in the country reached one of Mexico's northern-most cities.

Tijuana, in the Mexican state of Baja California, is just 17 miles from the Californian city of San Diego.

Some 70,000 drivers and 20,000 pedestrians use the San Ysidro crossing to enter the USA every day.

The move was spurred in part by caravans of Central American migrants moving north on foot, but officials say it will apply to anyone caught crossing illegally.
