United States fired tear gas into Mexico early on New Year's Day

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

The deployments were not directed at the migrants attempting entry on the USA side or at the fence line. CBP said migrants began to throw rocks at agents from the Mexican side while others tried to cross the concertina wire, including passing "toddler-sized children" over the wire.

Twenty-five of the migrants, including two teenagers, were arrested after making it over the border fence.

The border patrol said they dispersed "smoke, pepper spray and CS gas to a position upwind of the rock throwers".

In what human rights groups condemned as a "cruel and inhumane" act that must be independently investigated, agents with President Donald Trump's Customs and Border Protection (CBP) on Tuesday reportedly hit women, children, and journalists near the U.S. -Mexico border withtear gas, smoke, and pepper spray.

A mob of migrants from the migrant caravan stormed the border that day, trying to overwhelm Border Patrol agents. CBP estimated that about 150 migrants attempted to sneak into the U.S. illegally.

US border agents have responded to such moves with tear gas.

The Border Patrol used tear gas against a storm of illegal immigrants November 25, prompting criticism from some Democrats, including one senator who suggested the chemical deterrent violated worldwide law.

President Trump urges Democrats to 'come back from vacation' to make deal
Republicans appear to be preparing the ground for Individual 1 to back down to congressional Democrats with some integrity intact. The president shut down the government, demanding $5 billion for his border wall but Democrats have refused to meet the demand.

CBP said that under its use of force policy, the incident would be reviewed by its Office of Professional Responsibility.

The new year ushered in a cross-border clash during which tear gas was used by U.S. Customs and Border Protection agents to block approximately 150 migrants attempting to climb over - or crawl under - the U.S. -Mexico border fence into California, officials said.

The incident took place between a highway and the border fence.

According to the Washington Times, the migrants attempted to enter the country by climbing the fence or burrowing under the border fence until they were spotted by border patrol.

Migrants, part of a caravan of thousands traveling from Central America en route to the United States, go down a hill after failing to cross the border between the U.S and Mexico in Tijuana, Mexico Nov. 25, 2018. It has been a constant target of President Donald Trump, who referred to it frequently in the run-up to United States midterm elections in November.

The Trump administration's use of chemical agents against asylum-seekers comes amid a government shutdown over the president's demand for $5 billion in border wall funding. The federal government began its 12th day of a partial shutdown Wednesday; it is unlikely to end before Congress resumes on January 3.
