American authorities used tear gas on hundreds of migrants who tried to enter the United States illegally Sunday, prompting officials to shut down operations at the border crossing between this city and San Diego, one of the busiest in the world.
The caravan of migrants passed any number of other countries to get to the United States border with Mexico. And in true illegal immigrant fashion, over 1,000 of them rushed the border today, demanding entry, whilst hurling projectiles at border guards that made contact.
They were violent, they were aggressive, they put their own children at risk of serious harm, in short they were exactly they type of people that President Trump warned us that they were. It took tear gas to repel their illegal rush to cross the border.
Today, they can no longer simply be called migrants. No, today they graduated to the status of ‘enemy combatants’.
San Diego border crossing shut down after migrants try entering U.S.
FROM NBC NEWS: U.S. Customs and Border Protection suspended all vehicles and pedestrians from passing through the San Ysidro Port of Entry at 11:30 a.m. after the migrants tried to cross east and west of the inspection station. the agency said in a statement.
Some migrants said they tried crossing only after being denied access to the port of entry where they could claim asylum. The crossing was reopened to pedestrians shortly before 4 p.m. local time, the agency said.
Customs and Border Protection tweeted that it used tear gas after several migrants threw projectiles at border agents, striking them.
“The situation is evolving and a statement is forthcoming,” the agency said.

The shutdown came after hundreds of migrants — many whom are fleeing violence in Central America — assembled Sunday morning on the Mexican side of the border. American military helicopters buzzed overhead as hundreds of Mexican federal police officers blocked the migrants from entering San Ysidro.
“DHS will not tolerate this type of lawlessness and will not hesitate to shut down ports of entry for security and public safety reasons,” Department of Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen said Sunday in a statement. READ MORE

Mexico to immediately deport 500 migrants who ‘violently and illegally’ tried to cross US border
FROM THE UK INDEPENDENT: Mexico has said it will immediately deport up to 500 migrants from Central America who “violently and illegally” sought to cross the US border – pushing past Mexican people and causing US agents to fire tear gas to disperse them.
The US Customs and Border Protection (CBP) agency suspended all crossings at the San Diego-Tijuana entry point, after hundreds of migrants stormed their way through a blockade of Mexican police and a small number sought to open a space in a roll of razor wire.
With the Mexican police overwhelmed, US agents dispersed the migrants by firing or throwing tear gas. Images taken at the location showed clouds of tear gas hanging in the air, and people moving away from the border. “As the demonstrations on the Mexican side reached the border area, some members of the demonstration split off to head towards multiple locations along the border,” the CBP said in a statement.
