The Department of Homeland Security said more than 500 criminals were traveling in the migrant caravan at the San Ysidro border crossing on Monday.

Officials would not reveal how they identified the criminals, but said most of the individuals were adult men and teenage boys, according to Fox News.

The United States closed off northbound traffic for several hours at the busiest border entry point from Mexico to install new security barriers amid rumors that the caravan was preparing to rush the crossing.

United States Secretary of Homeland Security Kirstjen Nielsen slammed the caravan’s members earlier Monday for ‘purposely causing disruptions’ and included pictures of US troops lined up in front of the barbed-wire fences.

‘There is a legal and illegal way to enter the US. We have deployed additional forces to protect our border. We will enforce all our laws,’ Nielsen wrote in a Twitter statement.

‘@CBP and @DeptofDefense appropriately responded by blocking the lanes, deploying additional personnel and seeking assistance from other law enforcement and federal assets. #CBP has reopened lanes for legitimate trade and travel. I want to thank them for their swift actions.

The United States closed off northbound traffic for several hours at the busiest border entry point from Mexico to install new security barriers amid rumors that the caravan was preparing to rush the crossing.

All northbound lanes and one of two pedestrian crossings at San Ysidro, California were shut down for three hours from 3.15am on Monday for ‘port hardening’, Customs and Border Protection said in a statement.

The installation of movable, wire-topped barriers threatens to complicate life for Mexicans using San Ysidro, where about 110,000 people enter the U.S. every day in 40,000 vehicles.

Tensions have built already as nearly 3,000 migrants from the caravan poured into Tijuana in recent days after more than a month on the road – and with many more months likely ahead of them while they seek asylum in the U.S. The federal government estimates the number of migrants could soon swell to 10,000.

On Sunday night, there were clashes between the caravan and residents from the Mexican border city, who shouted ‘we don’t want you here’, and demanded that the ‘invaders’ from Central America turn around and return to their home countries.

Nielsen said that the crossing was shut down when law enforcement learned about the caravan’s plans to rush the border.
