Police use tear gas on migrants at U.S. border

President Donald Trump authorized shooting tear gas late Sunday afternoon from the USA border into Mexico against hundreds of migrants, including pregnant women, and children in diapers. Most of the migrants in the group were men.

Children screamed and coughed in the mayhem of the tear gas. "Fumes were carried by the wind toward people who were hundreds of feet away".

Yards away on the USA side, shoppers streamed in and out of an outlet mall.

Those who tried to "violently" and "illegally" enter the United States would be deported immediately, the Mexican interior ministry said on Sunday.

Authorities on the USA side used tear gas to disperse the would-be crossers, the journalists told CNN.

Yesterday, we covered a report in the Washington Post about a reported agreement reached between the incoming government of Mexican president-elect Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador and the Trump administration to have Mexico keep asylum-seekers on their side of the border until their cases are processed by USA immigration officials.

Traffic also was jammed for parts of the southbound stretch of Interstate 15 into Southern California from Las Vegas, including in the Cajon Pass.

Earlier Sunday, the group of several hundred migrants pushed past a blockade of Mexican police who were standing guard near the worldwide border crossing. Many say they are fleeing violence and poverty in Honduras. They erected metal barriers on the roads and sidewalks leading to the main border crossing for cars and trucks. "We are worldwide workers!"

Tijuana declares 'humanitarian crisis' seeks help from UN

Thousands of migrants began arriving in Tijuana about 10 days ago and have been housed since then in squalid conditions in a community sports center that has been converted into a makeshift shelter.

More than 5,000 migrants and refugees have gathered in Tijuana in the past week with the hope of entering the US.

On Monday morning President Trump tweeted that numerous migrants are "stone cold criminals", and threatened to close the border permanently. Every day more than 100,000 people enter the US there.

Some of the migrants tried to breach the border fencing and "sought to harm CBP personnel by throwing projectiles at them", the statement said, referring to Customs and Border Patrol.

President Trump threatened Monday to close the southern border "permanently" unless Mexico sends asylum-seekers - many of whom he described as "stone cold criminals" - back to where they came from.

Mexico's Interior Ministry earlier said those identified as having tried to cross would be processed for deportation to their home countries.

About 5,000 people - majority from Honduras, Guatemala and El Salvador - have gathered in Tijuana after traveling in caravans in search of asylum to escape poverty and violence in their homelands, and many are expressing frustration at long wait times for their cases to be heard. President Enrique Pena Nieto offered thousands of Central Americans asylum on October 26 if they agreed to remain in southern Mexico.
