Facing a hostile welcome and little hope, a growing number of migrants have made a decision to turn back.

"Certainly no-one wants women or children to have this happen, which is why we've encouraged them to follow the law and go to legal points of entry", she said. "We have never been the issue here", Ryan said at news conference. "It appears in some cases that the limited number of women and children in the caravan are being used by the organizers as "human shields" when they confront law enforcement", Nielsen said. "They say it was the whole caravan, but it wasn't the whole caravan", she said.

Mexico's Ministry of Foreign Relations sent a letter to the U.S. Embassy this week asking for an "exhaustive investigation" into use of force by the Border Patrol, namely firing tear gas into Mexico. "I got to work for a living". He set a goal of trying to move his family out of the shelter in another week.

US Customs and Border Protection Commissioner Kevin McAleenan said the administration's concerns about the caravan "were borne out and on full display" Sunday.

"I can't act unless the rules are on our side", Becerra, who is the son of Mexican immigrants, said. They saw the clash and official response as hurting their chances of reaching the U.S. Mexico's National Migration Institute reported that 98 migrants were being deported after trying to breach the U.S. border.

The area has grown with new arrivals over the past several days.

A Peaceful Demonstration Turns Ugly at US Border

The incident at the San Ysidro crossing marked an escalation of tensions that have been mounting since groups of Central American migrants began arriving in Tijuana a few weeks ago on their journey to attempt entry into the United States. The chaos followed what began as a peaceful march to appeal for the USA to speed processing of asylum claims.

Trump hit out again by threatening a permanent closure of the frontier, and defended the use of tear gas by U.S. border patrol, saying it was "very safe".

Agents fired tear gas at the group. The minister did not comment on reports that the incoming government of President-elect Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador was close to an agreement with the U.S. that would make migrants wait in Mexico even after they had submitted their asylum claims to the US.

Trump told Politico the political battle over the border was a "total winner" for his party even as he said he was not taking action "just for political gain".

"We are for strong border security. And that is, give us shelter, give them food, water, medicine, everything that a person needs to be dignified and have a place where they can stay dignified", he said.

These migrants are exhausted, restless and growing frustrated by the reality that it's proving much more hard to get across the border than they had anticipated. "And one of the things that was very useful for us was if we started seeing people break away from the caravan, then do follow-up work on why are they are breaking away from the caravan, and stuff like that".

Some migrants have tried to sneak into the United States alone, without much success.

Trump has deployed almost 6,000 troops to the border, on top of more than 2,000 members of the National Guard, but Scott said the Department of Defense was not involved in Sunday's engagement.
