‘They are criminals!’ Tijuana mayor threatens to sue migrant caravan organizers

California assessing legal action against use of force on Mexico border

The migrants were part of a caravan of about 7,000 people that arrived in Tijuana two weeks ago.

When the other four men stood up and ran, the suspect allegedly elbowed the agent in the chest, and then the agent "deployed several strikes to (the suspect's) body and head", according to the criminal complaint. Charges were not filed because the administration generally doesn't separate families and because Customs and Border Protection didn't collect enough evidence to build cases, including the names of arresting officers, according to a USA official familiar with the matter who was not authorized to discuss it publicly and spoke on condition of anonymity.

Homeland Security officials have said as many as 600 people in the caravans have criminal records, but have not specified how they know, or given many details. Two other men, ages 22 and 38, were also arrested while attempting to illegally cross the border, and discovered to be Honduran nationals.

"What I did yesterday was very risky, I wish it won't happen again", she said, blaming the large number of male migrants who rushed past Mexican riot police to storm the border. They fanned out on both sides of the crossing and many slipped through an opening in the border fence or tried to climb over. In at least one instance, Border Patrol officials in the Rio Grande Valley multiplied six suspected assailants by the three types of items they threw - rocks, bottles and tree branches - and by the seven agents who were targeted, for a total of 126 assaults. Their first attempt last weekend led to a brief closure of border crossings that Tijuana residents use to reach jobs and shopping on the USA side. They point to images of crying barefoot children running from clouds of tear gas after Sunday's clash as proof of the administration's inhumane treatment. Still others escaped prosecution because in the chaos surrounding Sunday's incident, authorities missed pieces of information necessary to file charges, such as the names of the officers who made arrests.

The fate of the 42 immigrants remains unclear but Customs and Border Protection said they will face deportation.

US authorities are working on a new system to better record evidence if similar circumstances arise in the future, the official said.

Then on Sunday, a group of the migrants attempted to cross into the United States near the San Ysidro Port of Entry. Asylum seekers are often released in the USA pending the outcome of their cases in immigration court.
