Migrant Clash Prompts California Border Closure
U.S. border agents clashed with Central American migrants trying to cross the border Sunday after hundreds of asylum-seekers bypassed a Mexican police blockade and rushed the busy border terminal at San Ysidro. U.S. Customs and Border Protection officers fired tear gas to repel the migrants from the border fence, causing some to fall off the fence and smoke to waft into Mexico. The normally busy crossing leads into San Diego. The clash came amid conflicting reports of Mexico agreeing to house asylum seekers south of the border while U.S. claims are processed.
