Mexico plans to deport migrants who tried to breach United States border

Mexico plans to deport migrants who tried to breach United States border

The policy, known as "Remain in Mexico", was formulated by the Trump administration to deal with the thousands of immigrants seeking asylum in the the caravan.

Migrants were asked by police to turn back toward Mexico.

The gas reached hundreds of migrants protesting near the border after some of them attempted to get through the fencing and wire separating the two countries.

"Children screamed and coughed".

Hours earlier, The Washington Post quoted her as saying that the incoming administration of Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador had agreed to allow migrants to stay in Mexico as a "short-term solution" while the USA considered their applications for asylum.

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

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".

During this ordeal, the San Ysidro Port of Entry, located near San Diego, was at a stand still.

According to the ministry, no casualties have been registered among migrants following their attempt to illegally enter the United States, and the situation at the border is under control. Trump has vowed to shut down the southern border with lethal force if necessary, and is calling on Mexico to intervene.

In order to enter the United States legally, migrants must apply for asylum, but the process can last for up to a year.

He has deployed some 9,000 US troops along the border in support of the US Customs and Border Protection agents.

Video clips posted on Twitter showed large numbers of migrants dashing across a shallow concrete waterway toward the border.

President Trump offered Mexico some advice on deporting migrants massed in Tijuana and threatening to storm the US, telling the neighboring nation in a tweet to send them "back to their countries" by plane or by bus - or face a permanent closure of the border.

"People had thought that they were going to open the gates, but that was a lie", Caballero said.

"Would be very SMART if Mexico would stop the Caravans long before they get to our Southern Border, or if originating countries would not let them form (it is a way they get certain people out of their country and dump in US No longer)", he wrote.

"There is no agreement of any sort between the incoming Mexican government and the US government", future Interior Minister Olga Sanchez said in a statement. "Congress, fund the WALL!"

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. It said that 1,906 of them were members of the recent caravans. News slowly spread as the Thanksgiving holiday weekend wrapped up and millions were traveling back home, but by Monday morning countless Americans expressed outrage.

Trump wanted to prosecute James Comey and Hillary Clinton
Mr McGahn, however, warned the president against the action, and stated that he had no authority to order such a prosecution. McGahn left the White House in October, with 21 months in service ranking among the longest-serving of Trump's top aides.
