US asylum laws - here's what to know

However, groups grew frustrated after realizing they wouldn't receive permission, so they headed toward the border fence - with U.S. CBP responding with tear gas.

More than 5,000 migrants are now residing in the border city of Tijuana, according to reports, which has drawn the ire of the mayor.

In 2007, the Border Patrol said that agents were attacked almost 1,000 times over a one-year period, prompting them to use tear gas and pepper spray.

The U.S. Department of Homeland Security said that 42 migrants who illegally crossed the U.S. -Mexico border over the weekend are now in custody.

After the unrest Mexico on Monday deported 98 Central Americans, following their arrest. Mexico's Milenio TV showed images of migrants climbing over fences and peeling back metal sheeting to enter.

Migrants cross the river at the Mexico-U.S. border after pushing past a line of Mexican police at the Chaparral crossing in Tijuana, Mexico, on Sunday. Trump said, referring to his central election pledge to build a wall across the US-Mexico border. They also threw rocks, attempted to illegally cross the border, and forced authorities to close the San Ysidro Port of Entry for hours on end, notes Graham.

Although Sunday's incident took place at a part of the border where there is already a physical barrier, Trump again urged Congress to fund his long-promised border wall, as well as reiterating his unsubstantiated assertion that there are many criminals among the migrants.

Earlier in the interview Monday, Colburn asserted that the so-called "caravan" of migrants and asylum-seekers "has a core of violence to it that basically communicates a sense of entitlement".

"We ran, but the smoke [from the gas] always reached us and my daughter was choking", said Lurbin Sarmiento, 26, from Honduras, who was near the border with her four-year-old daughter, according to the Associated Press (AP). The Ministry of Interior said the main caravan has 8,247 people, with 7,417 of those located in Tijuana or nearby Mexicali.

Department of Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen said in a statement that USA authorities will continue to have a "robust" presence along the Southwest border and that they will prosecute anyone who damages federal property or violates US sovereignty.

Around 500 men, women and children, part of a caravan of roughly 5,000 mainly Hondurans who have been trekking towards the USA for weeks, scrambled over a rusted metal fence and surged into a concrete riverbed towards San Diego on Sunday. It said that 1,906 of those who have returned were members of the recent caravans.

The migrants, who are overwhelmingly young males, attacked Border Patrol agents by hurling rocks at them.

"The alarm went off and they began throwing tear gas at us".
