The mayor of Tijuana said on Sunday that he would not let the migrants' actions damage the city's relationship with its neighbors across the border.

"Families are frightened and soldiers are shooting tear gas at toddlers".
Numerous migrants had gathered earlier in the day to protest against being forced to stay in Tijuana instead of being allowed to cross and seek asylum in the US.

"As I have continually stated, D.H.S. will not tolerate this type of lawlessness and will not hesitate to shut down ports of entry for security and public safety reasons", Nielsen said.
Unclear what a short-term fix might look like, though, as run-ins between authorities and migrants continue to escalate. The wait can last months or even years, during which time many migrants are released and allowed to work under rules that President Donald Trump has described as "catch and release" and has vowed to change.
Mexico's interior ministry has said it plans to deport everyone caught trying to "violently" and "illegally" cross into the US on Sunday out of the country, while the office of Tijuana Mayor Juan Manuel Gastélum said that at least 39 members of the caravan had been arrested over causing riots, disrupting public order and assaulting citizens, "among other causes".
