Mexico Will Not Use Military Force to Deal With Influx of Migrants

Police, carrying anti-riot shields, then formed a new line and appeared to contain the rush of migrants 100 yards or more from the crossing. Mexican police officers in riot gear stopped many, but those who continued toward the fence met US border agents, who sprayed some with tear gas.

San Diego Mayor Kevin Faulconer said it is critical for leaders on both sides of the border to work together to "safely resolve the migrant crisis". Most of the migrants are being housed at a sports complex, where they face long wait times for food and bathrooms.

U.S. Customs and Border Protection has defended its decision to use tear gas, claiming that some migrants with the group had thrown projectiles across the border, hitting several agents.

"Children screamed and coughed".

Trump wants migrants to remain in Mexico while their US asylum cases are adjudicated.

"Mexico should move the flag waving Migrants, many of whom are stone cold criminals, back to their countries", Trump tweeted early Monday morning.

Duncan Wood, the director of the Mexico Institute at the Wilson Center in Washington, said in a statement that "the closing of the border is a drastic response to a serious incident but it is vital that calm heads prevail".

"As I have continually stated, DHS will not tolerate this type of lawlessness and will not hesitate to shut down ports of entry for security and public safety reasons", she said, adding the United States would "seek to prosecute" offenders.

Trump announced on Saturday that his administration was working on a deal with Mexico to keep asylum seekers at America's southern border in Mexico.

Lurbin Sarmiento, 26, of Copan, Honduras, walked back to the sports complex with her 4-year-old daughter shaken from what had unfolded a short time earlier at the Tijuana River and USA border.

"We can't have all these people here", Mujica said.

"Would be very SMART if Mexico would stop the Caravans long before they get to our Southern Border", Trump wrote on Twitter on Sunday. "Congress, fund the WALL!" he added.

For the past few days, the migrants planned Sunday's protest to express their frustration about the wait and the conditions where they're living, some of them painting signs asking Trump to let them in.

Mexico's Interior Ministry said Sunday the country has sent 11,000 Central Americans back to their countries of origin since October 19, when the first caravan entered the country. If they agreed to the "Remain in Mexico" policy, those caravan members - and nearly certainly many thousands more who are on their way to the USA - would have to be cared for in Mexico while they await the outcome of their asylum requests.

Mexico is on track to send a total of around 100,000 Central Americans back home by the end of this year.
