Mexico vows to deport United States border-rushers

Mexico vows to deport United States border-rushers

The migrant caravan at the U.S. -Mexico border consists of mostly men who are not "true asylum seekers", former Acting ICE Director Thomas Homan said Monday, adding that he agrees with President Donald Trump's threat to shut down the border if Mexico doesn't deport the migrants back to their home countries. -Elect Gavin Newsom has condemned the use of tear gas by U.S. agents on migrants attempting to cross the U.S. -Mexico border near San Diego over the weekend.

The Mexican government said later on Sunday it had retaken control of the border crossing after almost 500 migrants tried to cross the US border "in a violent manner", and vowed to immediately deport Central Americans who attempt to enter the United States illegally.

Nine bus loads of Mexican federal police took up positions around the Tijuana sports complex where more than 5000 migrants are camping out, with many waiting for the chance to apply for asylum in the United States.

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.

"We're here with broken hearts and hopes", said Andy Colon, a 20-year-old woman who traveled from Honduras with her sister and two children. "We are hard workers". As they reached a bridge and stairway that leads to a square near the USA border, they were stopped by Mexican authorities, who told them to wait for permission. "They start throwing rocks and they storm the border!"

Gordon McRorie added three conversions and two penalties for the side coached by ex-Dragons boss Kingsley Jones. The Canucks have yet to miss a Rugby World Cup, featuring in all eight previous editions of the event.


USA officials reopened the crossing at the San Ysidro port of entry between the U.S. city of San Diego and the Mexican city of Tijuana after closing it for several hours.

Tear gas was sacked at the migrant group, which included women and children.

US authorities made 69 arrests on Sunday. A young woman fell to the ground unconscious, and two babies cried, tears streaming from the gas. That view featured heavily in his speeches during the midterm election campaign when several were hundreds of miles away, traveling on foot. Mattis also was empowered to temporarily detain illegal migrants in the event of violence against the border patrol.

We want to hear from you. "My little girl is sick and I don't even have money for milk", said Joseph Garcia, 32, of Honduras. "I want to work but they haven't given me papers. It's a good way of deterring people without long-term harm", said ex-Border Patrol deputy chief Ron Colburn, who served under the second President Bush. "A large group rushed the area & were throwing rocks & bottles at my men & women, putting them in harm's way as well as other members of the caravan", Border Patrol wrote on Twitter on November 26.

"Are we in the United States yet?" some asked in desperate tones.
