Mexico plans to deport migrants who tried to breach USA border

Tensions rise on US-Mexico border Tijuana declares 'humanitarian crisis' seeks help from UN

Mexico pledged to shore up security near its border with the United States and local authorities said that 39 migrants were arrested after a peaceful march devolved into chaos when US agents fired tear gas into Mexico to stop some migrants who tried to breach the border.

The US closed the San Ysidro crossing point between Tijuana, Mexico and San Diego, California for several hours in response.

The vast majority of the more than 5,000 Central American migrants camped out for more than a week at a sports complex in Tijuana returned to their makeshift shelter to line up for food and recuperate from an unsettling afternoon.

"After being prevented from entering the port of entry, some of these migrants attempted to breach legacy fence infrastructure along the border and sought to harm CBP personnel by throwing projectiles at them", Nielsen said. When asked if any of the agents had been hurt he admitted they were not.

Protesters were caught between the Mexican and USA authorities.

Customs and Border Protection tweeted about the alleged use of tear gas.

After running to relative safety a few hundred feet away, hundreds of the caravan members held a sit-in.

The president is putting more pressure on Mexico, warning that he might close the southern border "permanently" if necessary.

More demonstrations were planned on Sunday at San Ysidro, the busiest land port of entry in the Western Hemisphere, according to the US General Services Administration.

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.

They then went to rush the border, at which point the Border Patrol deployed tear gas to protect agents.

Amnesty International said what happened Sunday was predictable after Trump ordered the troops to the border and said he told them that if a migrant throws a rock, "consider it a rifle".

"Mexico should move the flag waving Migrants, many of whom are stone cold criminals, back to their countries", Trump said Monday on Twitter.

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

Stephanie Leutert, director of the Mexico Security Initiative at the University of Texas at Austin, described the Remain in Mexico plan as a strategy to take away the ability of migrants to live and work in the USA while cases are processed. "We want to see if they'll give us permission to go to the USA", she said.

Trump administration officials have characterized the vast majority of asylum claims as fraudulent or legally insufficient, and have taken steps to reduce the backlog of asylum claims that they say are often used by migrants to gain entry into the US and disappear into the country as their claims are adjudicated.
