Some migrants grab kids at border, aren't real parents

Donald Trump Threatens to Close US Border With Mexico

In 2013, during the Obama administration, Border Patrol agents used pepper spray to fend off a crowd of approximately 100 migrants who attempted to rush the San Ysidro port of entry.

As news pictures showing children fleeing tear gas prompted sharp criticism from some lawmakers and rights advocates, the U.S. government agencies defended the response.

The Rev. James Martin, a Jesuit priest and author, decried the myths that have led Americans to turn their backs on migrants who have come to the border seeking asylum.

"What I saw on the border yesterday was not people walking up to Border Patrol agents and asking to claim asylum", Scott said.

A day after a march by members of the migrant caravan turned into an attempt to breach the USA border with Mexico, many migrants appeared sullen, wondering whether the unrest had spoiled whatever possibilities they might have had for making asylum cases. With a backlog of cases that number into the thousands, many migrants appear set to linger along the border for months, if not longer. "The Trump administration should focus on providing a fair and lawful asylum process in the US rather than seeking more ways to undermine it".

He said he understands that the migrants want to be part of the United States, "but there's a legal way to do it".

Irineo Mujica, who has accompanied the migrants for weeks as part of the aid group Pueblo Sin Fronteras, said the aim of Sunday's march toward the USA border was to make the migrants' plight more visible to the governments of Mexico and the U.S.

Trump also tweeted on Saturday that migrants at the U.S. -Mexico border would stay in Mexico until their asylum claims were individually approved in U.S. courts, but Mexico's incoming government denied any deal had been struck. Now, critics aren't backing down once again after border agents used tear gas against migrant children attempting to seek asylum.

Mexican authorities have said 500 migrants were involved in the attempts to storm the border.

Although there are some bargains out there, Which? advised shoppers to do some research before rushing out to buy on Black Friday. Currys PC World customers were told they could save £10 on a Sony compact camera advertised as £189 on Black Friday.

Mexican government officials have had no immediate response. "Even so, I'm not going back to Honduras, I want to go to the United States". Trump has threatened to shut down the government unless Congress pays for his planned border wall.

American authorities also shut down the nation's busiest border crossing at San Ysidro for several hours at the end of the Thanksgiving weekend.

It was not immediately clear whether those throwing objects at USA agents were part of the caravan, MSNBC reported.

In its own statement, the CBP directly defended its use of tear gas, writing on Twitter that Border Patrol agents "deployed" the substance "to dispel" migrants "because of the risk to agents' safety".

"Tear gassing families seems unnecessary", Lee Gelernt, the deputy director of the ACLU Immigrants' Rights Project, told CNN.

"We have not seen any specific proposal, what we do know is that leaving asylum seekers stranded in Mexico can put them in danger", Gelernt said.

More than 5,000 migrants have been camped in and around a sports complex in Tijuana after making their way through Mexico in recent weeks via caravan.

"We can't have all these people here", he said. He questioned why parents were approaching the border with children at all, suggesting that some of the adults "grabbed" children to better their chances of entering the US.
