Mexico begins moving caravan migrants to new shelter

U.S. Customs and Border Protection, officers block the Otay Mesa port of entry from Mexico into the United States early

Some migrants - unwilling to wait two months to start an asylum application or unable to pay a $3000-$10,000 smuggler's fee price, have simply been trying to cross into the United States on their own.

According to U.S. Customs and Border Protection statistics, assaults on Border Patrol agents have recently spiked - though an investigation by the news website The Intercept disputed the sharp rise, contributing it to artificial inflation because of the way assaults are tallied.

Homeland Security says it has identified 600 identified criminals within the caravan.

U.S. customs and border control officers fired tear gas canisters into Mexico at dozens of migrants who tried to rush border fencing on Sunday.

GOP US Sen. Hyde-Smith wins divisive runoff, keeps her seat
Espy resigned the Cabinet post in 1994 amid a special counsel investigation that accused him of improperly accepting gifts. Michael Smith is the first and only husband of Cindy Hyde-Smith, who is now running in the runoff election for the U.S.

Hundreds of migrants boarded buses at the overcrowded sports complex within view of the border for the trip to the new shelter about 10 miles (15 kilometres) from the border crossing at Otay Mesa and 14 miles (22 kilometres) from San Ysidro, where asylum claimants line up.

Prosecutors said the group was initially compliant, with the exception of the suspect, who at one point stood up as the Border Patrol agent was trying to handcuff him. They fanned out on both sides of the crossing and many slipped through an opening in the border fence or tried to climb over.

US authorities say assailants threw a "hail of rocks" at Border Patrol agents in the Sunday chaos that erupted during a protest against USA asylum laws, striking four who escaped serious injury. Their first attempt last weekend led to a brief closure of border crossings that Tijuana residents use to reach jobs and shopping on the USA side.

"The truth is that we were told that if we didn't go to the caravan, then we were not with them, and you know, since we departed from Honduras, we came in a caravan", she told the Epoch Times.

Nintendo sales topped $250 million from Thanksgiving to Cyber Monday
Meanwhile, the 3DS, NES Classic, and SNES Classic continue to generate a steady stream of cash for Nintendo. Lifetime combined sales of Pokemon Ultra Sun and Moon crossed 2.2 million.

Then on Sunday, a group of the migrants attempted to cross into the USA near the San Ysidro Port of Entry.

US authorities are working on a new system to better record evidence if similar circumstances arise in the future, the official said.

Numerous migrants admit frankly that, when they set out, they had no real strategy beyond reaching the U.S. border.

Lauren Mack, a spokeswoman for Immigration and Customs Enforcement, said the agency could not provide information about the immigration status of the 42 arrested without names because it doesn't track people affiliated with the caravan. One woman from Honduras, Leida Reyes, told her she thinks this is better than what they lived with back home.
