United States officials say 69 migrants arrested in clash

Donald Trump Threatens to Close US Border With Mexico

Mexico's National Institute of Migration Commissioner Gerardo Garcia confirmed the 98 arrests on his country's side, saying there were "instigators" in the migrant caravan pushing people to illegally cross the border.

It is unclear whether all 39, if any, of those arrested will be deported.

Tijuana Mayor Juan Manuel Gastelum, who has said his city is facing a humanitarian crisis, told a local radio station the United States would take up to three months to start processing asylum requests.

Groups of Central American migrants have been converging on the Mexican border city for days in their quest to gain entry to the United States.

American authorities also shut down the nation's busiest border crossing at San Ysidro for several hours at the end of the Thanksgiving weekend.

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.

Democrats and other critics called the use of tear gas an overreaction, and questioned the idea of keeping the migrants in Mexico to make asylum claims there.

Police use tear gas on migrants at U.S. border
The breakoff group from the migrant caravan were met and stopped by Mexican police; Jonathan Hunt reports from Los Angeles. CBP deployed additional personnel to San Ysidro on Sunday in anticipation of demonstrations on both sides of the border.

McAleenan said hundreds - perhaps more than 1,000 - people attempted to rush vehicle lanes at the San Ysidro crossing.

- USA border agents fired tear gas on hundreds of migrants protesting near the border with Mexico on Sunday after some of them attempted to get through the fencing and wire separating the two countries, and American authorities shut down the nation's busiest border crossing from the city where thousands are waiting to apply for asylum.

Around 5,200 people who traveled in a caravan across Mexico are packed into the shelter in a stadium in Tijuana, living in makeshift tents. Many are from El Salvador, Guatemala and Honduras.

Numerous thousands who have gathered in Tijuana have said they will wait until they can seek asylum.

After the violence, Lurbin Sarmiento of Honduras walked back to the sports center with her four-year-old daughter.

British aid group Oxfam said in a statement the use of tear gas was shameful.

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

German Formula One driver Nico Hulkenberg survived a spectacular crash in the season ending Abu Dhabi Grand Prix overnight. Once again, Hartley, 29, is preparing to put all the conjecture to one side as he aims to finish the season on a high.

For instance, actress-turned-activist Alyssa Milano fired a familiar volley at Trump on Twitter: "You tear-gassed women and children, asswipe!"

The wind carried some of the gas toward hundreds of migrants after some tried to get through the wire and fencing separating the two countries.

U.S. officials reopened the crossing at the San Ysidro port of entry between the United States city of San Diego and the Mexican city of Tijuana after closing it for several hours.

Mexican police had kept them from walking over a bridge leading to the Mexican port of entry, but the migrants pushed past officers to walk across the Tijuana River below the bridge. He is anticipating that thousands of more migrants will arrive soon.

A migrant mother photographed running with her daughters from tear gas at the U.S. -Mexico border said she never expected the U.S. Border Patrol to fire gas canisters at children and families. He also made new arguments for his promised border wall.

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