USA border patrols use tear gas against migrants

ICE Was Forced to Use Tear Gas on Another Load of Caravan Riders

Tear gas was sacked as migrants tried to cross the border into the US.

In addition to rock-throwers, the migrants also began to try to push women and children from among their group forward onto the border boundary, USA officials said, forcing some juveniles to climb over razor wire that the American government has posted in recent weeks as a deterrent to unruly crowds itching to jump the border. "As agents were deploying less lethal chemical munitions (to include CS gas and inert smoke) in response to the assault, the group pushed women and children over the primary wall and into the concertina wire".

News photographers captured images of migrants massed on the Mexican side of the border, lowering people down onto razor wire coiled along the ground at the bottom of the US side of the fence.

Reuters reported that usa security personnel fired tear gas into Mexico after midnight on New Year's Day as some migrants prepared to climb a border fence.

CBP Commissioner Kevin McAleenan said a year ago that the Border Patrol's use-of-force policy allows agents to use tear gas and other nonlethal methods.

U.S. Customs and Border Protection said in a statement that about 45 migrants got through the first layer of fencing but turned back when they saw the border patrol's presence early Tuesday. "We don't like that type of violence of throwing rocks".

On Nov. 26, Border Patrol agents also launched tear gas into Mexico to repel migrants that had broken away from a peaceful protest and attempted to cross the border illegally.

A huge spill-over crowd in a nearby auditorium joined in the loud celebration, cheering each green, or good, status update. The first signal back to Earth should come about 10 hours after the flyby , around 9:45 am (1445 GMT).

American police officers fired tear gas, pepper spray and smoke at the Mexican border in an attempt to deter more than 100 migrants from entering the United States illegally.

The incident took place between a highway and the border fence. A lot of them fled back into Mexico after the tear gas was shot.

American border agents fired tear gas canisters across the U.S.

Thousands of Central American migrants have been camping at shelters in Tijuana since arriving in November after traveling in caravans across Mexico to reach the USA border, where many have hoped to request asylum.

Customs and Border Protection said that under its use of force policy, the incident would be reviewed by its Office of Professional Responsibility. It affected the migrants, including women and children, as well as members of the press. It has been a constant target of President Donald Trump, who referred to it frequently before USA midterm elections in November. The rest asked to be transported back home or dispersed to other parts of Mexico.

Tijuana has become a flashpoint in the debate over USA immigration policy, amid a partial U.S. government shutdown over Mr Trump's demand for $5bn (£3.9bn) in funding for a wall along the border with Mexico. The federal government began its 12th day of a partial shutdown Wednesday; it is unlikely to end before Congress resumes on January 3.
