We reported earlier today on the effort by hundreds of caravan migrants to storm the US border (see video below). Tear gas was used to repel the crowd. The Mexican government is going to take measures to deport the 500 migrants who were involved. If only they had stopped the migrants when they entered Mexico in the first place!

BBC reports: 

Mexico will deport almost 500 migrants who attempted to storm the US border, according to its interior ministry.

The group were rounded up after trying to cross the border “violently” and “illegally” on Sunday, the ministry said in a statement.

Video footage shows dozens of people – including women and children – running towards the fence that separates the two countries near the city of Tijuana.

They were repelled by tear gas used by US border officers.

Mexico’s interior ministry said all those who were identified as having tried to cross would be deported immediately.
It added that, “far from helping their objectives”, the migrants’ actions had violated the legal migration framework and could have led to a “serious incident”.

Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen called out the violence in a statement on Sunday:

“After being prevented from entering the Port of Entry, some of these migrants attempted to breach legacy fence infrastructure along the border and sought to harm CBP personnel by throwing projectiles at them. As I have continually stated, DHS will not tolerate this type of lawlessness and will not hesitate to shut down ports of entry for security and public safety reasons. We will also seek to prosecute to the fullest extent of the law anyone who destroys federal property, endangers our frontline operators, or violates our nation’s sovereignty.”


Earlier today, President Trump told Mexico it would be “very SMART” for them to stop the Caravans long before they get to our Southern Border. He also warned the caravans about attempting to illegally cross into the USA, telling them would be “No crossings!”

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 U.S. No longer). Dems created this problem. No crossings!


Four days ago, President Trump announced that he’s sending 5,900 active duty troops to defend our southern borders from an invasion by tens of thousands of illegal aliens.

Now, AP is reporting – Hundreds of migrants approaching the U.S. border from Mexico were enveloped with tear gas Sunday after several tried to make it past fencing and wire separating the two countries.

U.S. agents shot several rounds of gas, according to an Associated Press reporter on the scene, after migrants attempted to penetrate several points along the border. Migrants sought to squeeze through gaps in wire, climb over fences and peel back metal sheeting to enter.

U.S. Customs and Border Protection helicopters flew overhead, while U.S. agents held vigil on foot beyond the wire fence in California. The Border Patrol office in San Diego said via Twitter that pedestrian crossings have been suspended at the San Ysidro port of entry at both the East and West facilities. All northbound and southbound traffic was halted.

Earlier Sunday, the group of several hundred migrants pushed past a blockade of Mexican police who were standing guard near the international border crossing. They appeared to easily pass through without using violence, and some of the migrants called on each other to remain peaceful.

They carried hand-painted American and Honduran flags while chanting: “We are not criminals! We are international workers!”

Migrants were asked by police to turn back toward Mexico.

Around 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. Many hope to apply for asylum in the U.S., but agents at the San Ysidro entry point are processing fewer than 100 asylum petitions a day.

The migrants are now reportedly rushing a California port of entry.


Here’s another view of the migrants rushing the port:

Breaking 911 is reporting that the port has now been shut down.

Hundreds of migrants were seen rushing the United States border at the San Ysidro Port of Entry in San Diego Sunday—the port was promptly closed by U.S. border authorities.


The San Ysidro border is currently shut down:

The migrants can be seen lining up along the sides of the port of entry above:

Migrants can be heard cheering Obama’s campaign rallying cry, “Yes we can!”
