In advance of rainstorm, second migrant shelter to open in Tijuana

  • A Peaceful Demonstration Turns Ugly at US Border

"If they come here and there is a confrontation, we will be caught in the middle", she said.

White House press secretary Sarah Sanders offered a similar line on Tuesday.

Around 5,200 people who travelled in a caravan across Mexico are packed into the shelter in a stadium in Tijuana, living in makeshift tents.

However, it's the slowdown in processing at these ports that is, in part, feeding the migrants' frustration.

Facing a hostile welcome and little hope, a growing number of migrants have made a decision to turn back.

Even more, Trump said the $5 billion would only cover the physical border. "We need food, water, blankets and a dignified place for people to sleep", he said. They also are not assigned to a direct law enforcement role, said Army Master Sgt. W. Michael Houk, a spokesman with the National Guard Bureau. "They say it was the whole caravan, but it wasn't the whole caravan", she said. Let's put people before politics, ' McCarthy said. He set a goal of trying to move his family out of the sports stadium in another week.

In the meantime, the military and border agents are still working on strengthening the border fence.

On Sunday, United States authorities closed the Tijuana border entry port, according to The Washington Post, including to vehicular traffic. Another 98 were deported by Mexican immigration officials for pushing past police barricades and trying to cross the US frontier on Sunday. "It's going to take a while to mark the evidence and use a bunch of resources, meanwhile [they're] going to keep this person in the United States whom [they] could just remove anyway".

The area has grown with new arrivals over the past several days. CBS News reached out to U.S. Customs and Border Protection seeking an update on the woman's health status, but did not get an immediate response back.


Letters were sent to the governments of the U.S., Guatemala, Honduras and Mexico, asking that migrants traveling from Central America to request asylum at the U.S. border have their human rights protected and have their humanitarian needs - food, water, healthcare, sanitation, etc. - fully addressed. The incident began with a march to the border that organizers said would be peaceful.

Ms Meza, from Honduras, said she had not attempted to cross the border, and was only looking across the fence when the tear gas was used.

"They were being rushed by some very tough people and they used tear gas", Trump said Monday of the previous day's encounter. "Now, if we don't get it, will I get it done another way?"

"But I will tell you, politically speaking, that issue is a total victor".

But use of force by Customs and Border Protection officers and agents is declining from a high during the 2013 budget year, government statistics show.

The mayor of Tijuana said he has mixed emotions over what happened on Sunday.

These migrants are exhausted, restless and growing frustrated by the reality that it's proving much more hard to get across the border than they had anticipated. Vega issued a public appeal to Mexico's federal government to take over responsibility for sheltering the migrants and deport any who break the law.

Scott also defended the agents' decisions to fire tear gas into Mexico, saying they were being assaulted by "a hail of rocks".

The head of the Senate Homeland Security committee chairman, Republican Ron Johnson, said Trump "deserved to have better barriers funded" but noted that most government funds had already been appropriated and that most security spending would continue under emergency provisions. "I don't want to leave the camp as I've heard there are lots of police outside".
