Busiest U.S.-Mexico border crossing reopens after violent clashes

Tijuana declares 'humanitarian crisis' seeks help from UN

"The additional personnel, which included CBP officers, US Border Patrol agents, and Air and Marine agents, were recently deployed to the San Diego area from various areas around the country in preparation for the potential arrival of the caravan in Tijuana". Close to 3,000 migrants took Mexico up on the offer.

US border agents shot several rounds of tear gas after some migrants attempted to penetrate various points along the border and threw what appeared to be rocks at USA authorities.

The breakoff group from the migrant caravan were met and stopped by Mexican police; Jonathan Hunt reports from Los Angeles. They appeared to easily pass through without using violence, and some of the migrants called on each other to remain peaceful.

On Twitter, Sen. Brian Schatz, D-Hawaii, wrote that the "tear gas across the border against unarmed families is a new low".

Protesters march along the U.S. -Mexico border during a rally to show solidarity with the migrant caravan on Sunday, November 25.

"Mexico should move the flag waving Migrants, many of whom are stone cold criminals, back to their countries", Trump tweeted early Monday morning.

One migrant from Honduras said, "They started throwing tear gas at us".

The worries for the cryptocurrency investors grow further as crypto markets entered a DEEP RED correction on Monday , Nov. 19. After months of relative calm, the digital currency started to drop last week.

"As I have continually stated, DHS will not tolerate this type of lawlessness and will not hesitate to shut down ports of entry for security and public safety reasons", she said, adding the United States would "seek to prosecute" offenders. Trump has vowed to shut down the southern border with lethal force if necessary, and is calling on Mexico to intervene. She had signed up for an interview with a US asylum officer, the first step in the asylum application process - but the surge of migrants with the caravan meant that she would be waiting for weeks.

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

"We can't have all these people here", Mujica said. US border officials have said they have a limited capacity to process asylum seekers, up to 100 per day.

The mayor of Tijuana said on Sunday that he would not let the migrants' actions damage the city's relationship with its neighbors across the border. "Congress, fund the WALL!"

The Trump administration has demanded that Mexico agree to host migrants who apply for asylum in the United States at the southern border as they wait for their hearing before an immigration judge in the United States.

The fate of the migrant caravan has become a heated political debate in the United States, with Trump and his supporters claiming that secure borders take priority over accepting asylum seekers.

Mexico's government says since mid-October, when the first caravan arrived, they have sent 11,000 Central Americans back to their home countries. When asked if any of the agents had been hurt he admitted they were not.
