"There Were Children", Says Migrant Mother Tear-Gassed At US Border

Thursday, 29 Nov, 2018

"We can not determine at what pace people are interviewed" by USA officials as part of the asylum process, the incoming foreign relations secretary, Marcelo Ebrard, told a news conference in Mexico City.

McAleenan said individuals breached the border fence to the east of San Ysidro and some went west and sought to enter through the Tijuana River channel.

"So, what do we have to do?"

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

McAleenan added that 69 people were apprehended entering the United States illegally during the scramble, and that no successful illegal entries had been made. "That is something we have to do".

The president insisted that with the midterm elections behind him, he's not playing politics. He now faces the hard task of placating Trump on the migrant issue while upholding Mexico's longstanding position of demanding better treatment for migrants.

"In some cases, you know, they're not the parents", the USA president told reporters ahead of a rally in MS on Monday night.

Researchers believe part of the reason for the decline was the economic recession that gripped the United States in 2007 and the slow recovery that followed, which limited work opportunities for migrants. "And we've got to get the five billion dollars", Cheney said, adding there is no "plan B". Asked how much the USA should contribute, Ebrard suggested the figure should be at least $20 billion. 'Stick to the $1.6 billion'.

"There Were Children", Says Migrant Mother Tear-Gassed At US Border

Without offering more details, DHS officials said the vast majority of migrants are coming for "economic reasons and not asylum".

The US government has stood by its use of tear gas to disperse migrants attempting to rush the border. Her condition is not considered life-threatening. A sign on the gate said the school would remain closed until further notice.

Under U.S. law, anyone arriving at a port of entry or crossing in between ports of entry is eligible to apply for asylum if they have a fear of returning to their home country.

This displeased many progressives, who contend that the proper amount of new border-security funding (to provide to an administration that considers kidnapping and psychologically torturing migrant children a legitimate form of border security) to be approximately $0. "They say it was the whole caravan, but it wasn't the whole caravan", she said. It wasn't right. They know we are human beings, the same as them.

Army Capt. Guster Cunningham III, a spokesperson for the task force on the ground with the Border Patrol mission, said military police only step in after Border Patrol, other federal law enforcement personnel, and state personnel, including National Guard and local law enforcement resources, are utilized "so as to preclude [the Defense Department] being a first line of contact with migrants".

Mexico deported scores of Central American migrants arrested after hundreds forced their way through a Mexican police blockade and headed for the United States but were met with tear gas and rubber bullets.

On Sunday, a group of almost 1,000 migrants, dramatically attempted to storm the border fence, near Tijuana, Mexico, following the temporary closure of the Southern California border crossing.

3,000 people are already on the list for asylum before this caravan can even be addressed and immigration officials can only get through 100 people a day.
