The buses dropped them off in the town of Navojoa, in the northern state of Sonora, then returned to pick up a second group of 2,000 migrants who had stayed behind.

Some migrants in a caravan of Central Americans have made long leaps forward in their journey to the US border, with a first sizable group arriving in the border city of Tijuana, while others on Wednesday were left stranded far behind. President Donald Trump has said the caravan of migrants amounts to an "invasion".

"We are expecting more of these little groups, but we don't know right now exactly what we are going to do with the big caravan", he said.

Over the past few weeks, the active-dutyservicemen deployed under Operation Faithful Patriot have mainly been erecting barbed-wire fences along the border in Texas, California and Arizona, as well as building shelter accommodation for customs and border protection staff.
