Mexico Border Crisis: Migrant Mom From Guatemala Impaled In Front Of Children

A Peaceful Demonstration Turns Ugly at US Border

"What we'll have to do is come together", he told reporters. "If there's any shutdown, it's on President Trump's back".

U.S. President Donald Trump said he would "totally be willing" to shut down the federal government unless Congress authorized $5 billion to fund his long-promised border wall along the U.S. southern border with Mexico, according to a Politico interview released on Wednesday.

On Nov. 26, President Donald Trump incorrectly said that three border patrol agents "were very badly hurt through getting hit with rocks and stones" when a group of migrants tried to breach the US border at the San Ysidro Port of Entry in San Diego. "It's very safe", he later added.

The day after the incident, Mexico's foreign ministry asked the USA for "a full investigation".

"We need Democrat votes to have a wall", Trump said.

Letters were sent to the governments of the U.S., Guatemala, Honduras and Mexico, asking that migrants traveling from Central America to request asylum at the U.S. border have their human rights protected and have their humanitarian needs - food, water, healthcare, sanitation, etc. - fully addressed.

He predicted the Supreme Court would take up the legality of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, an Obama-era initiative that protected thousands of young undocumented immigrants brought to the United States as children from deportation. Women and children were among those affected by the use of tear gas, migrants said. They do not meet the qualifications to get asylum here.

Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen has defended the use of tear gas, saying border agents were entitled to "self-defence". At one point, the caravan had more than 7,000 people.

"[The migrants] are noticing that", he said. "I see the Democrats are going to want to do something, because they understand, too".

In terms of the demographic profile of unauthorized migrants, even before Trump took office there had been a decline in the number of illegal immigrants from Mexico.

House Republicans are willing to green-light Trump's border wall proposal, but they will lose their majority status - and with it the ability to move legislation - when the new Congress is sworn in.

Trump has previously threatened to shut down the US government over the border wall funding.

Opposition Democrats have said they will approve $1.6 billion for the wall, leaving the two sides far apart.

Around 1,000 migrants, including women and young children, had been holding a peaceful midday demonstration in Tijuana when half of the group bolted toward the border.

When they neared the second fence, U.S. border agents fired tear gas and rubber bullets at them as helicopters buzzed overhead.

US President Donald Trump is strongly defending the use of tear gas at the Mexico border to repel a crowd of migrants that included angry rock-throwers and barefoot, crying children.

These migrants are exhausted, restless and growing frustrated by the reality that it's proving much more hard to get across the border than they had anticipated. If the United States doesn't want us, I'm going to stay here.

USA lawmakers must act to pass a spending bill by December 7 to fund some government agencies, including the Department of Homeland Security which oversees borders and immigration. One group that was chanting and waving a Honduran flag, he said, threw rocks at several officers.

Officials say they deploy the lowest form of force necessary to take control of a situation - but critics of the Sunday clash say gas never should've been used near small children.
