Donald Trump demands Mexico moves migrants from the USA border

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.

Appearing to defend her agency's response to the hundreds of migrants who approached the U.S. -Mexico border on Sunday, Nielsen said she would not "tolerate" any kind of "lawlessness" from anyone hoping to seek asylum in the U.S.

The vast majority of people attempting to file an asylum claim are allowed to do so once they reach the US, but often don't see a judge for several years while they wait to see a judge.

The incident lasted almost two hours, with two groups of migrants tear gassed after they crossed the Tijuana River, eventually returning to a stadium where they've camped for days, waiting for the opportunity to apply for asylum. The mayor of Tijuana has declared a humanitarian crisis in his border city and says that he has asked the United Nations for aid to deal with thousands of Central American migrants who have arrived.

"Do it by plane, do it by bus, do it any way you want, but they are NOT coming into the United States of America", the president, who spent his Thanksgiving break with his family at his Mar-a-Lago resort in Palm Beach, Florida said.

An Associated Press reporter saw US agents shoot several rounds of tear gas after some migrants attempted to penetrate several points along the border.

Most of the migrants stumbled back into camp in the northwestern Mexican city of Tijuana, dirty, scared and with ripped clothes.

Host Erin Burnett scoffed at Mr. Judd's facts, saying the agents were using tear gas against women and children this weekend.

Or that Mexico's Interior Ministry said around 500 migrants tried to "violently" enter the USA, the Associated Press reported, adding that it would immediately deport those people and would reinforce security.

Hundreds of Central American men, women, and children walked with banners and baby strollers from the Benito Juarez stadium to the El Chaparral port of entry, on the US-Mexico border.

On Monday, Trump tweeted the caravan at the border included "stone cold criminals".

Numerous migrants say they are fleeing violence and poverty in Honduras in search of asylum north of the border.

Francisco Vega, the governor of Baja California, said nearly 9,000 migrants were in the state - mainly in Tijuana, with a lesser number in Mexicali - and called it "an issue of national security".

The San Ysidro Port of Entry, located between Tijuana and San Diego, had to be closed for hours Sunday after the incident.

As the migrant caravan descended on the border this weekend, the Trump administration announced a potential solution that would require asylum seekers to wait in Mexico while their claims move through US courts.

What started as a peaceful march spiraled out of control Sunday as migrants heading toward a pedestrian border crossing were met by Mexican police trying to block their path, journalists at the scene told CNN. "Congress, fund the WALL!". "Even so, I'm not going back to Honduras, I want to go to the United States". He said the "dangerous situation" was resolved without serious injury.

"I think the funding of the wall right now, never looked better, never looked better", Trump said.
