Around 500 people from the caravan of Central American migrants began blocking El Chaparral, the main vehicle crossing point from San Diego into Tijuana, on Thursday.
Tired of waiting, the migrants decided to stage an indefinite sit-down at the entrance to the border bridge, thus hoping to exert pressure on US immigration authorities over their asylum application.
A huge tailback of vehicles stretched into Tijuana, although the entry port still remains open to those on foot.
