Homeland Security arrests about 50 migrants who crossed United States border, official says

Homeland Security arrests about 50 migrants who crossed United States border, official says

The United States closed its busiest border crossing with Mexico on Sunday after Mexican police broke up a protest of Central American migrants massed in Tijuana, scattering some demonstrators toward the border where USA officers hurled tear gas from the American side.

Footage of US border agents forcing migrants back from the border has had mixed reactions that have fallen along recent political lines.

On Fox & Friends, Border Patrol Foundation president defends pepper spraying latinx migrants because "it's natural".

Chief Patrol Agent of the Border Patrol's San Diego Sector explained on CNN that the officers at the border emitted tear gas because they were threatened by people entering illegally.

The journey of the so-called migrant caravan reached a head over the weekend as the USA closed, and then reopened, a busy border crossing between Tijuana and San Diego, and Mexico announced the deportation of a number of the migrants. In total, more than 5,000 immigrants have been staying inside and nearby a sport complex in Tijuana, hoping to be allowed to enter the U.S.

Reports suggest Mexico has already deported roughly 100.

Hundreds of people were peacefully protesting near the USA border in Tijuana, chanting that they aren't criminals, when a smaller group broke off and headed toward the border fence.

O'Rourke, recognizing hardships that have propelled many migrants to seek asylum, urged that the people be given the opportunity to plead their cases in a timely manner, as long as it is done so peacefully.

Sunday's melee closed one of the world's busiest global crossings, San Ysidro Port of Entry, near San Diego, to vehicle and pedestrian traffic for several hours.

Most recently, Trump reiterated his threat to close the entire southern border "if need be" - while telling Congress once again to "fund the WALL!".

On Sunday, the situation at the border devolved after a large group marched to the USA border to appeal for the U.S.to speed processing of asylum claims for Central American migrants marooned in Tijuana. A young woman fell to the ground unconscious, and two babies cried, tears streaming from the gas.

The migrants, who are fleeing poverty and violence, have said they would wait there until they could request asylum, despite growing US measures to tighten the border.

"We can't have all these people here", Mujica told The Associated Press.

"What we saw over and over yesterday was that the group, the caravan, would push women and children towards the front and then, basically, "rocking" our agents ..."

With the approaching migrant caravan, Mexico's incoming government has denied reaching a deal with Trump administration on asylum overhaul; Bryan Llenas has more details. The incident began with a march to the border that organizers said would be peaceful. "So some people got rocks and threw them because many kids were fainting", he said. Ralph said he suffered a boken shoulder blade while another agent in 2017 was rushed to the hospital after getting hit by a large rock in the chest.
