Hundreds of residents have taken to the streets of a Mexican border town, in protest at the arrival of thousands of migrants trying to get to the US.
They were urging the migrants to leave Tijuana, to the south of California.
The migrants are part of a large caravan of Central Americans which has been travelling though Mexico to the US, where they want to claim asylum.
In response to their arrival, the US and Mexico installed heavier security at the border crossing.
Tijuana Mayor Juan Manuel Gastelum said on Friday he expected the number of migrants arriving in the city in the coming weeks to reach 10,000, warning the city was not prepared to handle the "avalanche".
