No one arrested in border clash is prosecuted — APNewsBreak

On Tuesday, U.S. agents in Ajo, Arizona arrested two men traveling with the caravan who had ties to MS-13, a notorious gang from El Salvador whose members have brutally killed numerous Americans.

The memo was circulated amid reports that US President Donald Trump has told aides he has considered replacing Nielsen and other officials in his Cabinet, frustrated with Nielsen's lack of progress on immigration and border enforcement.

Charges were not filed because the administration generally doesn't separate families and because Customs and Border Protection didn't collect enough evidence needed to build cases, including the names of arresting officers, according to a USA official familiar with the matter who was not authorized to discuss the matter publicly and spoke on condition of anonymity.

"Since no one is listening to us, we've decided as a women's movement.to launch a hunger strike", said Claudia Miranda of Honduras at an improvised press conference in the border city of Tijuana.

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

Meanwhile, Secretary of Defense James Mattis said this week USA troops deployed to the border may stay longer than previously expected.

"The perpetrators will be prosecuted", she said then.

Many plan to seek asylum in the USA but may have to wait months because the US government only processes about 100 of those cases a day at the San Ysidro border crossing in San Diego.

"Why are (the police) treating us like this if we're not causing them or the Mexican people any trouble?" he said. They fanned out on both sides of the crossing and many slipped through an opening in the border fence or tried to climb over.

"This person who says he is from Pueblo Sin Fronteras". Authorities on the USA side of the border used tear gas to disperse the migrants. "Agents responded, arrested the three men, and transported them to a nearby Border Patrol station for processing", Customs and Border Protection released Friday afternoon. He said they should be held accountable and face criminal charges.

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

None of the 42 migrants arrested in Sunday's clash at the US-Mexico border will be criminally charged.

CNN does not know the current status of those that were arrested.
