On Sunday, residents of Tijuana, Mexico, protested against the arrival of thousands of Central American migrants.

Some protesters held signs that said "stop the invasion" and "Mexico first" while they chanted for the migrants to leave the country.

The thousands of migrants traveling through Mexico plan to seek asylum in the U.S. One group of about 200 migrants left El Salvador over the weekend.

Meanwhile, Politico reports all of the nearly 6,000 troops President Trump deployed to the southern border for increased security are expected to end their mission and return home by mid-December.
