U.S. agents launch tear gas at migrants in Mexico as they approach U.S. border

BY ASSOCIATED PRESS

TIJUANA, Mexico (AP) — Migrants approaching the U.S. border from Mexico were enveloped with tear gas Sunday after a few tried to breach the fence separating the two countries.

U.S. agents shot the gas, according to an Associated Press reporter on the scene. Children were screaming and coughing in the mayhem.

Honduran migrant Ana Zuniga, 23, said she saw migrants open a small hole in concertina wire at a gap on the Mexican side of a levee, at which point U.S. agents fired tear gas at them.

“We ran, but when you run the gas asphyxiates you more,” she told the AP while cradling her 3-year-old daughter Valery in her arms.

Mexico’s Milenio TV also showed images of several migrants at the border trying to jump over the fence. Yards away on the U.S. side, shoppers streamed in and out of an outlet mall.

U.S. Border Patrol helicopters flew overhead, while U.S. agents held vigil on foot beyond the wire fence in California. The Border Patrol office in San Diego said via Twitter that pedestrian crossings have been suspended at the San Ysidro port of entry at both the East and West facilities. All northbound and southbound traffic was halted.

Earlier Sunday, several hundred Central American migrants pushed past a blockade of Mexican police who were standing guard near the international border crossing. They appeared to easily pass through without using violence, and some of the migrants called on each other to remain peaceful.

They convened the demonstration to try to pressure the U.S to hear their asylum claims and carried hand-painted American and Honduran flags while chanting: “We are not criminals! We are international workers!”

A second line of Mexican police carrying plastic riot shields stood guard outside a Mexican customs and immigration plaza.

That line of police had installed tall steel panels behind them outside the Chaparral crossing on the Mexican side of the border.

Migrants were asked by police to turn back toward Mexico.

More than 5,000 migrants have been camped in and around a sports complex in Tijuana after making their way through Mexico in recent weeks via caravan. Many hope to apply for asylum in the U.S., but agents at the San Ysidro entry point are processing fewer than 100 asylum petitions a day.

Irineo Mujica, who has accompanied the migrants for weeks as part of the aid group Pueblo Sin Fronteras, said the aim of Sunday’s march toward the U.S. border was to make the migrants’ plight more visible to the governments of Mexico and the U.S.

“We can’t have all these people here,” Mujica told The Associated Press.

Tijuana Mayor Juan Manuel Gastelum on Friday declared a humanitarian crisis in his border city of 1.6 million, which he says is struggling to accommodate the crush of migrants.

U.S. President Donald Trump took to Twitter Sunday to express his displeasure with the caravans in Mexico.

“Would be very SMART if Mexico would stop the Caravans long before they get to our Southern Border, or if originating countries would not let them form (it is a way they get certain people out of their country and dump in U.S. No longer),” he wrote.

Mexico’s Interior Ministry said Sunday the country has sent 11,000 Central Americans back to their countries of origin since Oct. 19. It said that 1,906 of them were members of the recent caravans.

Mexico is on track to send a total of around 100,000 Central Americans back home by the end of this year.

MEXICO CITY – Mexican immigration agents on Wednesday detained almost all of the Central American migrants on a fourth caravan that recently entered Mexico seeking to reach the United States.

Mexico's National Immigration Institute said 213 migrants were detained and taken to a processing center. Those found to lack proper documents may face repatriation to their home countries.

The migrants detained on a highway between the Guatemalan border and the southern Mexican city of Tapachula included 186 people from El Salvador, 16 from Guatemala, 10 Honduras and one Nicaraguan.

The group set out from El Salvador on Nov. 18 and apparently crossed the river dividing Guatemala and Mexico on Tuesday. That is the same route the three larger caravans took after entering Mexico starting Oct. 19.

The caravans find strength in numbers, and Mexican officials have been loath to confront the first caravans, which numbered between 1,500 and 6,000. But agents have detained smaller groups that split off from the larger caravans.

Mexico has offered residency and other types of visas to migrants in the caravans, but most have refused, saying they want to reach the United States.

Also Wednesday, prosecutors in the northern state of Baja California — where the first caravan is now camped out — confirmed that a migrant was run over and killed by an unidentified vehicle on a highway between the border cities of Mexicali and Tijuana.

The state prosecutor's office said 17-year-old Oscar Baudiel Cruz Alcerro, of Honduras was found dead on the roadside with fractures and a dented skull, with parts from a white car scattered nearby.

Migrants stranded in Mexicali have been walking and hitching rides to join up with the main part of the caravan in Tijuana, about 110 miles (180 kilometers) to the west.

At least one other migrant was killed early in the caravan when he fell off a truck on a highway in the southern state of Chiapas.

大篷车队首波1600人抵美墨边界 无视6000美军

中美洲移民“大篷车队”首波约1600人,过去两天已先后抵达墨西哥在美国边界的大城提璜纳(Tijuana),无视川普总统调动守护边界的6000名美军,但当地民众已经公开表达不满这些移民前来,而且接下来很可能是漫无止境的等待。

法新社报导,为数约5500人的中美洲移民,在跋涉逾一个月后,已有700多人最近几天抵达提璜纳;另外800人分乘22辆巴士,也于15日清晨抵达,并沿着公路走进市区,其余数千人也将在这几天抵达。

现年32岁的洪都拉斯移民费南德兹(Miriam Fernandez)说:“我们到了边界,现在觉得好多了,这趟路好累,我们走了一个月,带着我的四个女儿一起。”

不过,报导指出,这些移民如果想寻求美国庇护,以合法身分留在美国,可能得等上很长时间,因为上周川普总统签署了行政命令,下令任何不是经由正规关卡进入美国的移民,都不给予庇护,并且自动遣返,而正规关卡可能只让少数人进入美国。

这些移民大多是逃离中美洲三国的贫穷与动荡不安,也就是萨尔瓦多、危地马拉与洪都拉斯,这些地方的帮派暴力猖獗,谋杀率居高不下。

然而,当这些移民在提璜纳海边接近美墨边界的友谊公园扎营时,数百位当地民众在现场抗议,不仅高唱墨西哥国歌与反移民口号,甚至还对这些移民丢石头。

一位提璜纳女性民众高喊说:“我们不要你们来,你们会希望我们跑到你家,把屋里搞得一团糟吗?”

墨西哥内政部长 Alfonso Navarrete 指出,提璜纳民众之所以抗议,是因为谣传这些移民拒绝接受当地人捐助的食物、衣服或避难场所,他也呼吁墨西哥民众不要把这些移民“视为罪犯”。

协助移民的人权团体透露,部分中美洲移民拒绝在当地设立的庇护所登记,因为害怕墨国政府把他们身分转告美国。

美国政府曾经表示,整个庇护体系已经饱和,因为过去五年来申请案暴增20倍,目前仍有70万件积案等待处理。

在宏都拉斯等中美洲國家的移民大軍繼續向美國邊境挺進之際,經濟學人和YouGov網站5日公布調查顯示,逾四分之一的美國人認為,每個移民都應被拒絕入境。

調查中表示不准任何移民進入美國的民眾是占28%,持這種看法的共和黨人有56%,而民主黨人僅占9%。

部分人認為對移民應是有條件地接受,38%的人表示,只有以正當理由申請庇護才可受理,其他人則應拒絕,持這種看法的民主黨人占47%,共和黨人是占三分之一。

調查中還有16%的人認為,對所有移民大軍都應接納,持這種看法的民主黨人占27%,共和黨只占6%。

民調顯示,白宮派兵阻擋移民大軍到的支持多於反對,44%的美國人贊成川普派兵,只有三分之一的人不贊成,其他人或是表示中立,或是尚未決定。87%的共和黨人贊成,但贊成的民主黨人只有15%。

YouGov網站的分析師凱西·法蘭科維奇說,共和黨人比其他群體更相信,移民大軍中藏有中東的恐怖分子,55%的共和黨人認為部分移民是恐怖分子,而民主黨和獨立派則認為恐怖分子很少。

移民大軍5日抵達墨西哥首都墨西哥市後,在馬提內茲體育場休息,截至當天下午,體育場已匯聚至少2000人,而偌大的體育場最多可容納2000人的三倍,但他們距美墨邊界仍有數百哩的路要走。

移民大軍在體育場洗漱和吃飯後,拿出床單準備宿營。部分人因為生病和腳上起泡而到醫務站治療,墨西哥市一名護士說,他們到體育場為移民服務,來後就一直沒有停下。

US militia groups planning to form their own caravan and head to border: report

Civilian militia groups are reportedly headed to the border to try to help enforce U.S. immigration law as roughly 6,000 immigrants move northward through Mexico.

"We’ll observe and report, and offer aid in any way we can," the president of the Texas Minutemen, Shannon McGauley, told The Washington Post. "We've proved ourselves before, and we'll prove ourselves again."

McGauley said that the Texas Minutemen have 100 volunteers headed to the border, with more likely on the way. They are reportedly packing coolers, tents, guns and aerial drones for their trip.

“I can’t put a number on it,” he added. “My phone’s been ringing nonstop for the last seven days. You got other militias, and husbands and wives, people coming from Oregon, Indiana. We’ve even got two from Canada.”


U.S. Troops Arrive At Border With Migrant Caravans Hundreds Of Miles Away | NBC Nightly News

Published on Nov 3, 2018

The closest of the three migrant caravans is still some 700 miles away, though the U.S. military has already fanned out across Southern Texas — the first wave of up to 15,000 troops that President Trump said will help secure the border.





The Post noted a Newsweek report, which planning documents the magazine obtained, that the U.S. military is concerned about "unregulated militia members self-deploying to the border in alleged support" of U.S. Customs and Border Protection. 

The documents warn of “incidents of unregulated militias stealing National Guard equipment during deployments" and estimated that 200 militia members could show up at the border.

Trump deployed 5,200 U.S. troops to the border last week and has said that he may send as many as 15,000.

"We have seen them in the past, and when things start getting really busy, we have to make sure to let the community know they’re out there," the top Border Patrol official at one of the busiest points for illegal crossings told the Post. "But they’re doing that on their own."

大篷车移民拒挽留执意赴美 美民众带枪抵达边境

  当地时间26日,墨西哥总统涅托为了挽留“移民大篷车队”开出了“优厚条件”,然而数千名移民谢绝了涅托的挽留,并表示他们执意要去美国。而另一方面,美国一些平民则携带枪支抵达南部边境,与美国巡逻队和国民警卫队一道,打算阻止“移民大篷车队”进入美国。

  据俄罗斯卫星通讯社报道,当地时间周五(26日),墨西哥总统涅托对“移民大篷车队”开出了一项名为“你到家了”的计划。他表示,如果移民肯留在墨西哥南部的两个州,政府将为他们提供住所、医疗、教育和工作。然而大多数移民拒绝了墨西哥总统的邀请。

  “谢谢!”,他们喊道,“但是我们还是要向北走”。一名58岁的移民说,“我们的目的不是留在墨西哥,而是经过墨西哥到达美国,这就够了”。据墨西哥政府统计,在7500名移民中,有大约1700名同意留在墨西哥。

  墨西哥当局允许这些移民徒步穿越他们的领土,但是拒绝向他们提供食物、住所或洗浴设施,只将这些服务提供给同意留在墨西哥的移民。

  据了解,第一波“移民大篷车队”距离美墨边境还有大约1000英里(约合1609公里)。此外,约1000名“大篷车移民”的“第二梯队”正在来的路上。

  与此同时,美国方面,一些携带枪支和防弹背心的美国平民活动人士正在集结,这些美国民众正准备与边境的巡逻队和国民警卫队一道,加强防守,以阻止“移民大篷车队”进入美国。

  一些民兵告诉记者,他们将会抢先抵达边境,以便安排后到的志愿者。得克萨斯州民兵组织的主席麦高利(Shannon McGauley)表示,他已在得克萨斯州边境处的3个地点部署了民兵成员,预计未来几天还会有25到100人抵达那里。

  近日,7500名移民浩浩荡荡组队向美国逼近一事引发轩然大波。美国总统特朗普为了阻止移民进入美国可谓是不遗余力。他先是在社交媒体上将此事称作“国家紧急事件”,随后又签署行政令以便迅速颁布法规,阻止所有中美洲国家的移民进入美国领土并寻求庇护。此外,他还将增派800多名现役军人协助南部边境的安全行动,以应对即将到达美国的“大篷车”移民。

  然而,批评人士表示,特朗普对移民“大篷车”的反应过于夸张,认为其目的在于煽动公众对安全威胁的担忧,以便在中期选举前团结保守派,以及分散选民在医疗保健等核心问题上的注意力。

  据悉,这批规模庞大的“移民大篷车队”主要由洪都拉斯人组成,他们为了逃离贫困和帮派暴力离开自己的国家,徒步经过萨尔瓦多和危地马拉,穿越墨西哥,最终的目的是进入美国。

Militia offers to help stop caravan raise concern at border


HOUSTON (AP) — Militia groups and far-right activists are raising money and announcing plans to head to the Mexican border to help stop the caravan of Central Americans, echoing President Donald Trump’s attacks on the migrants making their way toward the U.S.

Exactly how many militia members will turn out is unclear, and as of Friday, the caravan of about 4,000 people was still some 1,000 miles (1,609 kilometers) and weeks away from reaching this country.

But the prospect of armed civilians at the border — and the escalating political rhetoric over immigration — have fueled fears of vigilantism at a time when tensions are already running high because of the mail bomb attacks against some of Trump’s critics.

The U.S. Border Patrol this week warned local landowners in Texas that it expects “possible armed civilians” to come onto their property because of the caravan.

Three activists told The Associated Press that they were going to the border or organizing others, and groups on Facebook have posted dire warnings about the caravan. One said it was “imperative that we have boots on the ground.” Another wrote: “WAR! SECURE THE BORDER NOW!”

The militia members said they plan to bring guns and equipment such as bulletproof vests and lend a hand to the Border Patrol to protect against people unlawfully entering the country.

“They’re just laughing in our face,” said Shannon McGauley, president of the Texas Minutemen. “It’s a free-for-all in America.”

McGauley said he already has members at three points of the state’s border with Mexico and expects to add 25 to 100 more people in the coming days.

Border watch groups and militias have been patrolling the 2,000-mile (3,200-kilometer) southern boundary off and on for more than a decade. Typically, the groups watch for people illegally crossing into the U.S. When they spot crossers, they contact the Border Patrol.




Their presence has led to conflict in some cases. A militia member killed two people in 2009 during an invasion of what she thought was a drug house near the border in Arivaca, Arizona.

Residents in that same city have been posting signs in recent weeks warning that militia members are not welcome.

The migrants’ northward trek has led to an election-season furor in the U.S., with Trump calling for the Army to be sent to the border and a Pentagon official saying the administration will dispatch 800 or more active-duty troops.


Border crossings, while rising this year, are still far below the numbers in previous decades. But Harel Shapira, a University of Texas professor who was embedded with an Arizona militia from 2005 to 2008, said that what’s driving militia groups is the way some politicians have more recently defined immigrants as “existential threats to a particular way of life.”

Monica Marin, an Oregon resident, said she has raised about $4,000 online to help militias buy supplies. She argued that members of the caravan are dangerous, echoing Trump’s claim that “unknown Middle Easterners” are mixed in with the crowd. There is no evidence to support those claims. (Read an AP fact check here .)

“I see young, fighting-age men who do not look like they’re starving. They look like they’re ready to fight,” Marin said. At the same time, she said: “We’re trained. We’re not hotheads. We’re not out there to shoot people.”

Marianna Trevino Wright, a South Texas resident who is director of the nonprofit National Butterfly Center, said she is more fearful of the militias than the caravan.

“We go about our business here every day in a peaceful manner,” Wright said. “The idea that we could be invaded not by illegal immigrants but by militia groups ... is regrettable, and it will end badly.”
