Mexico to up security at border after migrants try to cross

CARAVAN CHAOS: Over 50 Migrants ARRESTED After STORMING US-Mexico Border

"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. Some of the migrants threw rocks over the border fence, presumably to hit U.S. Border Patrol officers.

He questioned why the Mexican government "allowed" the migrants to rush the border, as there was advance intelligence that it was going to happen.

The situation on the Mexico-US border has become increasingly frantic over the past few hours as desperate migrants attempt to enter the US.

The journey of the so-called migrant caravan reached a head over the weekend as the US closed, and then reopened, a busy border crossing between Tijuana and San Diego, and Mexico announced the deportation of a number of the migrants.

For weeks before the 6 November congressional elections, Trump raised the alarm about the migrant caravans and ordered some 5,800 U.S. troops to the border to support border patrol agents.

Mexico's Interior Ministry said it would immediately deport those who tried to "violently" enter the US from Tijuana.

McAleenan said individuals breached the border fence to the east of San Ysidro and some went west and sought to enter through the Tijuana River channel.

Most of the migrants stumbled back into camp in the northwestern Mexican city of Tijuana, dirty, scared and with ripped clothes.

The official said Monday about 50 migrants have been detained after they crossed the border near San Ysidro, Calif., on Sunday. "Congress, fund the WALL!" he said in a statement on November 26.

Mexico to shore up border security, deport migrants who tried to enter U.S.

Earlier in the interview Monday, Colburn asserted that the so-called "caravan" of migrants and asylum-seekers "has a core of violence to it that basically communicates a sense of entitlement". There can be no disagreement when it comes to firing tear gas on innocent families.

Or that Mexico's Interior Ministry said around 500 migrants tried to "violently" enter the US, the Associated Press reported, adding that it would immediately deport those people and would reinforce security.

"We ran, but the smoke always reached us and my daughter was choking", Sarmiento said, visibly shaken.

President Donald Trump has pushed for a border wall along the U.S. -Mexico border.

On Sunday in Tijuana, hundreds of caravan members including women and children protested peacefully.

Other footage shows Border Patrol agents firing tear gas canisters at migrants who were trying to storm the border.

The group, part of a migrant caravan, were soon stopped near the United States border by Mexican authorities, who told them to wait for permission before the stand-off took place. 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.

Tijuana Mayor Juan Manuel Gastelum on Friday declared a humanitarian crisis in his border city of 1.6 million, which he says is struggling to accommodate the crush of migrants.
