A group of about 150 Central American migrants remain in limbo at a U.S. border crossing after U.S. border inspectors said the port of entry did not have enough space to accommodate them.

The migrants, who traveled in a caravan to try to seek asylum in the United States, camped out Monday near the border crossing facility in Tijuana, Mexico, with some inside a port of entry between the two countries. On Sunday, the migrants were stopped from entering the San Ysidro facility because officials said it was at capacity.
