Mexico Will Not Use Military Force to Deal With Influx of Migrants

The US authorities have re-opened the San Ysidro port of entry into Mexico after it was closed to prevent a caravan of thousands traveling from Central America from crossing

USA authorities closed the San Ysidro crossing to vehicle traffic in both directions as well as pedestrians for several hours before fully reopening late Sunday.

A peaceful march by Central American migrants waiting at the southwestern USA border veered out of control on Sunday afternoon, as hundreds of people tried to evade a Mexican police blockade and run toward a giant border crossing that leads into San Diego.

Soon after the migrants began their midday march to the border in Tijuana, Mexico, they were met by Mexican federal police officers at a bridge that leads to the San Ysidro border crossing, through which millions of people and vehicles pass each year.

The order was lifted some hours later. Following the incident, the Mexican Interior Ministry said it will deport hundreds of migrants who attempted to "violently" cross the border. If they agreed to the "Remain in Mexico" policy, those caravan members - and nearly certainly many thousands more who are on their way to the US - would have to be cared for in Mexico while they await the outcome of their asylum requests.

An estimated 8,200 migrants from the so-called caravans heading to the US from Central America are now in Mexico, authorities say.

US authorities fired tear gas that wafted into Mexico and caused migrants to run from the fumes.

"DHS will not tolerate this type of lawlessness and will not hesitate to shut down ports of entry for security and public safety reasons".

Two separate terror attacks took place in Pakistan on Friday morning, killing at least 27 people, and wounding over 20 people. Police told Al Jazeera that one of the three attackers have been killed, and that suicide vest and weapons were recovered.

Department of Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen said in a statement that USA authorities will continue to have a "robust" presence along the Southwest border and that they will prosecute anyone who damages federal property or violates US sovereignty.

Mexico's government says since mid-October, when the first caravan arrived, they have sent 11,000 Central Americans back to their home countries.

"Unlike the relatively bipartisan criticism of Trump's now-abandoned "family separation" method of deterring migrants, the initial outrage at the tear gassing of children appeared to come primarily from Democrats and critics of the president".

Some migrants shouted that they only wanted to make their way to a better life. Close to 3,000 migrants took Mexico up on the offer.

The mayor has said previously that the city can not support the migrants.

Throughout the day, U.S. Customs and Border Protection helicopters flew overhead, while U.S. agents on foot watched beyond the wire fence in California. Many were fleeing violence and poverty in Honduras in hopes of finding asylum in the US.

The incident occurred at the most active entry point between the United States and Mexico, which typically facilitates an estimated 100,000 crossings a day.

The Washington Post reported Saturday that the Trump administration had gained the support of Mexico's incoming government for a plan to require asylum seekers to wait in Mexico for their applications to be processed.
