LGBT Migrants Leave Caravan over ‘Discrimination,’ Reach California Border

11/12/2018 | Newsweek

LGBT members of a caravan of Central American migrants heading toward the U.S. border appear to have reached the California border after leaving the main group behind over alleged discrimination from other migrants.  A local community group in Tijuana, Mexico, where the group appears to have arrived, said they were “surprised” to see members of the caravan arrive earlier than expected in the small town, which borders San Diego, California. “Very surprised because we did not know about the arrival of this caravan,” community group Vecinos de Playas de Tijuana, A.C., or Neighbors of Playas de Tijuana, A.C., wrote in a Facebook statement translated from Spanish. The community group said that roughly 77 members of the caravan had arrived, though it is unclear if all of them identify as LGBT.
