- US border agents fired tear gas on hundreds of migrants protesting near the border with Mexico on Sunday after some of them attempted to get through the fencing and wire separating the two countries, and American authorities shut down the nation's busiest border crossing from the city where thousands are waiting to apply for asylum.
At least 500 migrants, including women and children, had been taking part in a peaceful demonstration in Tijuana before dashing towards the border in an attempt to clamber over a first metal fence.

"They grab a child because they think they're going to have a certain status by having a child", he said. There are more than 7,000 at the US border in Tijuana and the city of Mexicali, with more than 800 others still moving toward the border. Mexican Interior Minister Alfonso Navarrete accused some of the migrants of attempting to cross from Tijuana in a "violent way", and said they would be deported.
