As Trump renews border wall demands, United States government shutdown looms

As Mexico wrestles with what to do with more than 5,000 Central American migrants camped out at a sports complex in the border city of Tijuana, President-elect Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador's government signaled Tuesday that it would be willing to house the migrants on Mexican soil while they apply for asylum in the United States - a key demand of U.S. President Donald Trump.

Several migrants told UPI they worry Mexican authorities will seek to remove them from the camp and deport them after Sunday's march, the surge at the border and the use of force in response by US authorities.

Mexican authorities estimated the crowd at 500.

Researchers believe part of the reason for the decline was the economic recession that gripped the United States in 2007 and the slow recovery that followed, which limited work opportunities for migrants. The Chemical Weapons Convention banned the use of chemical weapons in war, and also the production and stockpiling of weapons. It turned out that there was a 110% increase between 19 April and 30 September, 2018 in the number of such "fake families" appearing at the border and attempting to enter the country using underage children as a pretext. So, this is completely unheard of.

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.

Three tear gas canisters shot from the USA side landed around Meza and her children, who range in age from toddlers to teenagers, she said in an interview at a Tijuana migrant shelter.

"It's a term that's used because, as you know, many people, it's a very violent, terrible thing, but they feel they have an advantage when they're with a young child, and they call them grabbers". Both children, ages 3 and 5, were also taken to a hospital to be checked for potential fall trauma.

"I'm going to seek asylum in Mexico", Osvin Herrera of Honduras told UPI. They're now running on stopgap funds set to expire December 7.

"You know, you have certain advantages in terms of our insane laws that frankly Congress should be changing", he said. "It wasn't right they did that to the children".

Following the incident, Customs and Border Protection (CBP) Commissioner Kevin McAleenan defended the firing of CS gas canisters by agents saying it was to stop an "extremely risky situation" after primarily adult males began throwing rocks.

Women and children were among those trying to protect themselves from tear gas fired by the authorities, sparking condemnation from activists and some politicians. "We were like sheep without a shepherd at the border", she says, "but we never started the violence".

Instead, he said he wants to see first how court challenges play out over an Obama-era program that allowed Dreamers to stay in the country. "While Gastélum noted he did not agree with the measures taken by CBP agents, he said he has ". mixed emotions and [is] a little bit mad with the people who are taking their kids, taking their little ones, their siblings to a point where it is very risky for them and it is not fair".

According to the border forces, some of the asylum-seekers had thrown projectiles at them. I might get it done another way.

Mexico's National Institute of Migration Commissioner Gerardo Garcia confirmed the 98 arrests on his country's side, saying there were "instigators" in the migrant caravan pushing people to illegally cross the border. Of the 42, seven were women and a few were children. "But the intent is to use it at the immediate border to resolve assaultive behavior".

A spokesman for the United Nations International Children's Emergency Fund, UNICEF, told VOA that as of November 21, 4,731 migrants had arrived in Tijuana.
