Mexico to deport asylum seekers who tried to breach USA border

A Peaceful Demonstration Turns Ugly at US Border

President Donald Trump on Monday denied that federal agents along the US-Mexico border used tear gas on child migrants, but photos and videos show women and children migrants were among those caught up in an incident between border agents and a migrant group that rushed a border crossing Sunday.

The CBP said they had to resort to use gas tear and rubber bullets to respond to the migrants' aggressiveness and disperse the crowd. And here's the bottom line: "Nobody is coming into our country unless they come in legally", Trump asserted.

Trump portrays them as a threat to United States national security, intent on exploiting America's asylum law. He has deployed several thousand additional forces on the south western border with Mexico to prevent them from entering the country.

The migrants have travelled in large groups, dubbed "caravans", for more than 4,000km (2,500 miles) from Central America. Rodney Scott, chief of the Border Patrol's San Diego sector, said the initial count included some arrests in Mexico by Mexican authorities who reported 39 arrests.

"I was scared, and I thought I was going to die with them because of the gas", said Meza.

Border Patrol agents launched pepper spray balls in addition to tear gas in what officials said were on-the-spot decisions made by agents. And indeed a growing number are returning, discouraged by the bleak prospects for meeting their goal of entering the United States and asking for asylum.

She and hundreds of other Central American migrants were blocked by Mexican police and staged a protest in front of the border, some rushing the U.S fence.

Trump, who for weeks has been condemning the caravan, lashed out once more.

On the USA side, border patrol agents arrested 42 people who had illegally crossed the border.

Ms Meza, from Honduras, said she had not attempted to cross the border, and was only looking across the fence when the tear gas was used.

US and Mexican officials have been wrangling over migration and how to deal with asylum-seekers at the border as Tijuana, a border city of 1.6 million resident struggles to accommodate the crush of migrants. "Yesterday we observed the increase, an increase of asylum requests", she said.

Around 500 men, women and children, part of a caravan of roughly 5,000 mainly Hondurans who have been trekking toward the USA for weeks, scrambled over a rusted metal fence and surged into a concrete riverbed toward San Diego on Sunday. Some said they remained determined to cross, even after the results of Sunday's march to the border. USA troops deployed to the border on Trump's orders were not involved in the operation.

"Because of (the actions of a few), we all pay", said Romario Aldair Veron Arevalo, a 20-year-old friend sitting with her.

Trump told Politico on Tuesday that he saw little need to work with Congress over immigration reforms to address the roughly 700,000 so-called Dreamers, young adults who were brought to the United States illegally as children. At one point, the caravan had more than 7,000 people. US Customs and Border Protection said on Sunday that some migrants were throwing rocks at Border Patrol agents, prompting the agents to respond with force to protect themselves.

But it's also possible that Sunday's clash was borne of increasing desperation caused by the hardening of the policies, said Rachel Schmidtke, program associate for migration at the Woodrow Wilson International Centre for Scholars Mexico Institute.
