Teargas fired on migrants as U.S. agents close Mexico border crossing

Teargas fired on migrants as U.S. agents close Mexico border crossing”

US agents shot tear gas at the migrants after some tried to breach the fence separating the USA and Mexico.

Many hope to apply for asylum in the USA but agents at the San Ysidro entry point are processing fewer than 100 asylum petitions a day. Children were screaming and coughing in the mayhem.

Officials say the rebar is part of the ongoing work to replace decades-old fencing and is not connected with the US military's recent mission to strengthen the fence in response to the caravan.

Mexico's Milenio TV showed images of at least a few of the hundreds of migrants at the border as they tried to jump over the fence separating the two countries.

The closures come as around 500 migrants overwhelmed federal and local Mexican police blockades and rushed toward the USA border near Tijuana, Mexico. The 26-year-old, who was traveling with her 3-year-old and 5-year-old, scaled a U.S. border fence near California's San Ysidro Port of Entry.

The Border Patrol office in San Diego said via Twitter pedestrian crossings have been suspended at the San Ysidro port of entry at both the east and west facilities. All northbound and southbound traffic was halted.

Several hundred Central American migrants have marched toward the global border crossing between Tijuana and California to pressure the U.S to hear their asylum claims.

The migrants, mostly from Honduras, carried hand-painted American and Honduran flags, chanting: "We are not criminals! We are worldwide workers!"

The deal was seen as a way to dissuade thousands of Central American migrants from seeking asylum in the USA, a process that can take years.

More than 4,000 migrants are already in Tijuana on the Mexican side of the border, with more on the way in caravans. But agents at the San Diego port of entry process fewer than 100 claims per day.

The mayor of Tijuana has declared a humanitarian crisis in his border city and says that he has asked the United Nations for aid to deal with the approximately 5000 Central American migrants who have arrived in the city.

Asylum seekers hoping to enter the USA via its southern border will have to wait in Mexico while they are assessed, President Donald Trump announced Saturday, November 24 appearing to confirm a report about a bilateral deal published by The Washington Post.

But immigrant advocates have long opposed such a designation for Mexico for a number of reasons - principal among them the country's widespread and rising violence, which often targets Central American migrants.

White House spokesman Hogan Gidley said, "President Trump has developed a strong relationship with the incoming (Lopez) Obrador Administration, and we look forward to working with them on a wide range of issues".
