Migrant Impaled on Rebar After Falling Off San Diego Border Wall

Earlier Monday, Trump threatened in a Twitter post that he would "close the border permanently if need be".

San Diego Sector Chief Patrol Agent Rodney Scott told CNN Monday morning that the 42 people, mostly men, were arrested Sunday on the US side of the border.

She had been at the bottom of the river - a concrete riverbed conveying a trickle of water - near the border with her daughter when USA agents fired tear gas.

Mr McAleenan added: "As the events unfolded, quick, decisive and effective action prevented an extremely unsafe situation".

Brandon Judd, president of the National Border Patrol Council, said border agents' use of tear gas on caravan migrants trying to breach the U.S. -Mexico border was the "appropriate level of action".

By doing so, "within a couple days or a week", Cabrera said, "we would see a much smaller number of people actually claiming asylum".

Rodney Scott, chief US Border Patrol agent in San Diego, said the vast majority of those assembled at the border were economic migrants who would not qualify for asylum, adding there were few women and children.

At least three Border Patrol agents were hit with rocks during Sunday's clash, but none were seriously injured, and agents used tear gas canisters to disperse crowds at the border fence, Scott told CNN. The migrants, who are fleeing poverty and violence, have said they would wait there until they could request asylum, despite growing USA measures to tighten the border. "We have a shared border, and of course a shared concern for the safety and security of both communities in Tijuana and the San Diego area", said Provost. U.S. Border Patrol contacted paramedics and took her to the hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.

But on Monday, the incident had left many migrants sullen, wondering whether the unrest had spoiled whatever possibilities they might have had for making asylum cases.

USA agents fired tear gas into the crowd, which included children, as a peaceful march turned into chaos.

"They want us to wait in Mexico but I for one am desperate". With a backlog of cases that number into the thousands, many migrants appear set to linger along the border for months, if not longer. "Congress, fund the WALL!" he said in a statement on November 26.

On Sunday, the situation at the border devolved after a large group marched to the US border to appeal for the U.S.to speed processing of asylum claims for Central American migrants marooned in Tijuana.

Mexican police had kept them from walking over a bridge leading to the Mexican port of entry, but the migrants pushed past officers to walk across the Tijuana River below the bridge.

Donald Trump has insisted migrants heading towards the U.S. are "not coming in" as he demanded Mexico be responsible for sending those seeking asylum in America back to their home countries.
