Border Patrol Arrests 42 Migrants While Mexico Deports Others

Border Patrol Arrests 42 Migrants While Mexico Deports Others”

"We will close the Border permanently if need be", he added.

Footage from weekend border chaos included video images of mothers and toddlers rushing to avoid tear gas and/or pepper spray released from US border officials into Mexico territory as means to disperse Central American migrants amassing at the border.

American authorities also shut down the nation's busiest border crossing at San Ysidro for several hours at the end of the Thanksgiving weekend.

Mr McAleenan added: "As the events unfolded, quick, decisive and effective action prevented an extremely unsafe situation".

Migrants run from tear gas, thrown by the USA border patrol, near the border fence between Mexico and the United States in Tijuana, Mexico, Nov. 25, 2018.

"We ran, but the smoke always reached us and my daughter was choking", Sarmiento said, visibly shaken.

"Entering our country illegally, particularly over our walls is not only risky, but also very foolish", San Diego Sector Chief Patrol Agent Rodney Scott said in a written statement.

And US Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen said last night that Customs and Border Protection officers "were struck by projectiles thrown by caravan members" and "perpetrators will be prosecuted".

She said that the government was forced to close the San Ysidro border port of entry because of the large number of migrants trying to illegally enter the United States. "Nobody's coming into our country unless they come in legally". And since most of the border, with the exception of designated crossings, is already closed it would not likely solve Trump's problems with asylum-seekers who by law, must be allowed to present their claims if in fact they are able to cross the border anywhere. Mexican authorities intervened, prompting a rush toward the border by some people, before US agents fired tear gas.

"But now it seems that they want to kill us, and we got very scared", said Jimenez. "But the truth is the majority of the people that are part of this caravan...are men", Schwartz said while reporting live from a camp that members of the caravan set up in Tijuana, Mexico.

Tijuana Mayor Juan Manuel Gastelum said the throngs of migrants who have descended on his city is tantamount to a humanitarian crisis, and he declared an emergency. "Congress, fund the WALL!" he said in a statement on November 26.

The situation devolved after the group began a peaceful march to appeal for the U.S.to speed processing of asylum claims for Central American migrants marooned in Tijuana.

Trump has said the migrants should not easily enter the country and on Monday he threatened again to shut down the U.S. -Mexico border, which stretches 2,000 miles (3,200 km). "Far from helping the caravan, they are hurting it", he said in an interview with broadcaster Milenio.
