The US Customs and Border Protection in San Diego, California announced Sunday morning that the San Ysidro port of entry going both northbound and southbound have been closed due to multiple planned demonstrations on both sides of the border.

Additional personnel and resources were also deployed to the port of entry.

According to a report from Epoch Times, Honduran migrants were planning to wait until an expected 20,000 migrants arrive in Tijuana and then enter the United States illegally en masse.

The group plans to attempt to illegally enter the US through vehicle lanes at San Ysidro, because “it’s more spacious.”

US Customs and Border Protection agents secure the closed vehicle lane adjacent to the east pedestrian entrance into the United States. Seen from the Mexico side at San Ysidro.
