President Donald Trump called on the Mexican government to do more to stop migrants approaching the USA border, warning on Monday that he might permanently shut down entry if necessary.

Over the weekend, violent clashes occurred as the United States attempted to stem the flow of people crossing into the country.

Mexico's Foreign Ministry has asked the United States to investigate incidents in the Tijuana-San Diego border zone on Sunday that led to US Border Patrol agents firing tear gas at migrants attempting to cross the border.

In response, the Customs and Border Protection agency shut down the border and fired the tear gas to push migrants back from the fence.

Brandon Judd, president of the National Border Patrol Council, took umbrage to the outrage, questioning where the critics were when tear gas was deployed under Mr. Obama.

"As the events unfolded, quick, decisive and effective action prevented an extremely unsafe situation", he said.

"They had to use [tear gas] because they were being rushed by some very tough people", he said.

Department of Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen said in a statement that USA authorities will continue to have a "robust" presence along the Southwest border and that they will prosecute anyone who damages federal property or violates US sovereignty.

Mexican police had kept them from walking over a bridge leading to the Mexican port of entry, but the migrants pushed past officers to walk across the Tijuana River below the bridge.

More than 5,000 migrants have been camped in and around a sports complex in Tijuana after making their way through Mexico in recent weeks via caravan. A young woman fell to the ground unconscious, and two babies cried, tears streaming from the gas.

He wrote on Twitter, "Mexico should move the flag waving Migrants, many of whom are stone cold criminals, back to their countries". Now, Trump has responded to the whole ordeal. They were joined at Sunday's march by the National Immigrant Justice Center, which has been at the forefront of challenging Trump Administration policies on detaining asylum seeking families together until they can be processed.

Mexican authorities have said 500 migrants were involved in the attempts to storm the border.

"Border Patrol agents have fired gas on the southwest border before and there doesn't appear to be any law against it, but the more important question is whether such an action was necessary to maintain order and protect lives", said Alex Nowrasteh, an immigration policy analyst at the libertarian Cato Institute. Democrats and even some lawmakers in Trump's own party have resisted his calls to fund his proposed border wall.

United States authorities needed to "minimize the level of force that is being used", he added.

Around 500 men, women and children, part of a caravan of roughly 5,000 mainly Hondurans who have been trekking towards the USA for weeks, scrambled over a rusted metal fence and surged into a concrete riverbed towards San Diego on Sunday.
