US agents fire tear gas as some migrants try to breach fence   

TIJUANA, Mexico (AP) -- U.S. border agents fired tear gas on hundreds of migrants near the Mexico-U.S. border in Tijuana, Mexico, on Nov. 25 after some 500 of them attempted to cross the border illegally.

American authorities shut down the nation's busiest border crossing where thousands are waiting to apply for asylum.

The situation devolved after the migrant group began a peaceful march to appeal for the U.S. to speed processing of asylum claims for Central American migrants marooned in Tijuana.

U.S. authorities said on Nov. 26 they made 42 arrests during a confrontation with the migrants.

U.S. President Donald Trump tweeted on Nov. 26 that migrants "are NOT coming into the U.S.A. We will close the Border permanently if need be."

More than 5,000 migrants have been camped in and around Tijuana after making their way through Mexico in recent weeks via caravan.

The caravan began its journey on Oct. 13 in Honduras -- more than 4,300 kilometers from Tijuana -- to escape from poverty and gang violence.
