SAN YSIDRO, Calif. (KGTV) - Hundreds gathered at a park in San Ysidro in support of the migrant caravan just hours before border officials closed the border.

A group called the San Diego Migrant and Refugee Coalition organized the Sunday rally that eventually turned into a march. 

About 600 people joined the coalition which is made up of 20 migrant support and social justice groups. 

The organizers say they disagree with the militarization of the border and want the migrants to know they are loved and welcome. 

The march ended peacefully at the San Ysidro Port of Entry.
