U.S. fires tear gas across Mexico border to stop migrants

USA authorities fired tear gas into Mexico during the first hours of the new year to repel about 150 Central Americans who they claimed were trying to breach the border fence in Tijuana. The agency says 25 migrants were detained.

Some 2,000 migrants participated in the rush near the San Ysidro border crossing, a Mexican federal police officer told The Epoch Times.

Some of the migrants threw rocks as others lifted children over the razor-edged wire late Monday in the San Diego sector, the agency said a statement, which was based on initial reports. Majority fled back into Mexico after the tear gas was shot.

About 150 migrants approached the fence, but about one-third of the group members turned back into Mexico when they saw Border Patrol agents, CBP estimated.

The US Open Final: Who Will Make it?
The 34-year-old Swiss won the first two sets 6-4 and 7-5, forcing an injured and struggling Djokovic to retire in the third. If she’s at her best, then she’ll make it to the final and if she performs on the day the title will be hers.

Such clashes have been common as the migrants, who have put their names on a waiting list that is thousands of names long, have grown restless, with some opting to force their way across the border.

"Agents deployed smoke, pepper spray and CS gas to a position upwind of the rock throwers and south of the border fence".

The tear gas and pepper spray forced the rock throwers to flee while numerous migrants who were trying to illegally cross the border also turned back.

In November, after a group of migrants tried to rush the border, McAleenan defended the use of tear gas: "As the events unfolded, quick, decisive and effective action prevented an extremely unsafe situation".
