On Sunday, a group of migrants attempted to breach the US border by finding ways through several points along the border but were resisted by US agents who fired several shots of tear gas. The agents claimed some of the migrants threw rocks and projectiles.
The president of the United States thereafter warned Mexico to find a way to move the migrants, many of whom he called stone cold criminals, back to their countries otherwise they will close the border permanently if left with no option.
42 people among this group were arrested for disturbing public peace among many other charges according to US officials on Monday.
Afterwards, Mexico Interior Ministry said the group has been rounded up for their violent and illegal attempt to cross the border. Dozens of people were seen running aggressively towards the fence mounted at the border according to a video footage. A Mexico migration office official, Gerardo Garcia Benavente, said 98 people from the migrants have been sent back to their countries because of the violent incident.
Requested for a Peaceful Protest
Reacting to the border-breaching attempt, Alfonso Navarrete, Mexican Interior Minister, said the migrants requested help to stage a peaceful demonstration only to be allegedly advised by movement’s leaders to attempt breaching the border. The demonstration truly started on a peaceful note bust as soon as they make it pass the Mexican security blockade, it became a dash for the border.
The migrants’ latest move will not help their objectives in any way as they had trespassed the legal migration framework which could have resulted in ugly scenes according to Mexico’s interior ministry. The ministry revealed that 11,000 Central Americans had been deported since this influx of migrants entered the country on October 19.
After this incident, the camp of the migrants will most likely be darkened. The fear of how long they might have to wait to get asylum is putting migrants in desperate moods. One of them, Joseph Garcia, said she couldn’t stand it anymore.
‘Migrants are in a fix’ – the US insist no place for them in America and they are causing Mexico troubles.
