The head of United States Customs and Border Protection said border agents "prevented a risky situation from getting worse" when they fired tear gas at a group of migrants who rushed the US-Mexico border Sunday.
The vast majority of people attempting to file an asylum claim are allowed to do so once they reach the USA, but often don't see a judge for several years while they wait to see a judge.
Or that Mexico's Interior Ministry said around 500 migrants tried to "violently" enter the USA, the Associated Press reported, adding that it would immediately deport those people and would reinforce security. "Thousands of migrants have been gathering there after crossing through Mexico in a series of caravans that originated from Central America - and presumably are amongst those who were arrested on both sides of the border", writes Fox News.
Nevermind that the chief patrol agent of the San Diego Border Patrol sector told CNN Monday morning that the "vast majority" of migrants they're dealing with are "adult males" and that the group threw rocks at agents on Sunday.
Migrants cross the river at the Mexico-U.S. border after pushing past a line of Mexican police at the Chaparral crossing in Tijuana, Mexico, on Sunday.
Reports suggest Mexico has already deported roughly 100.
An average of 70,000 vehicles and 20,000 pedestrians cross from Mexico to the United States at San Ysidro each day, according to the U.S. General Services Administration.
Mexican officials said the migrants had taken part in "violent" chaos, which originally began as a peaceful march to appeal for the U.S.to speed processing of asylum claims for Central American migrants marooned in Tijuana. She said she never would have gotten that close with her daughter if she thought there would be gas.
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 5,000 Central American migrants who have arrived in the city.
But on Monday, the incident had left many migrants sullen, wondering whether the unrest had spoiled whatever possibilities they might have had for making asylum cases.
After running to relative safety a few hundred feet away, hundreds of the caravan members held a sit-in. Every day more than 100,000 people enter the US there.
US Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen accused the migrants of seeking to harm US border patrol personnel "by throwing projectiles at them".
Trump has deployed military forces to the border to support the Border Patrol and threatened on Saturday to close the entire southern border. Many hope to apply for asylum in the US, but agents at the San Ysidro entry point are processing fewer than 100 asylum petitions a day.
"The way these people rushed the border was absolutely monstrous". It said that 1,906 of those who have returned were members of the recent caravans.
