Mexico has offered asylum to the members of the caravan, but many are still trying to make their way to the United States.
MEXICO CITY, Dec. 3 (UPI) - Thousands of migrants from the Central American caravan in Tijuana, Mexico, have put their names on a waitlist for a preliminary political asylum interview with USA authorities - a wait that could be many months.
The move came a week after hundreds of migrants rushed the U.S. border, prompting U.S. Customs and Border Protection and Border Patrol officers to fire tear gas and smoke grenades at the crowd, which included many women and children.

"They were brought to the border by a group that told them they would be able to cross easily into the U.S.to present asylum claims, and that's not the case".
"We're just observing, waiting to see what happens", Mayeni said.
One of the children suffered a facial injury and was treated. Those individuals were also apprehended and taken into custody "for appropriate processing", he told Fox News' Bill Hemmer.
Ninety minutes later, she and her family were over the fence. We've got over 7,000 migrants there.
Watch:"We've got a challenging and still potentially volatile situation in Tiajuana". They turned around and waved to those still on the Mexican side.
Thousands of people have left Central America for Tijuana in the hope of crossing into the US.
