>> Chaos and confusion swelled at the US-Mexico border on Sunday as Us officials halted all border traffic between San Diego and Tijuana. The closure came as Mexican police cracked down on a protest on behalf of Central American migrants amassed near the port of entry, while US Custom and Border Protection officers on the US side fired tear gas.
Protestors were caught in the middle. Many of the migrants are part of a caravan seeking asylum in the United States. Last month, US President Donald Trump ordered the deployment of military forces to the border to help stop the migrants from crossing into the US. Sunday's confrontation sent protestors running in different directions.
Some say they intended to cross the border. Others were seen running through a canal near the crossing point.
e activity came a day after Trump said migrants would stay in Mexico until their asylum claims were individually approved in the US courts. Mexico's incoming government has denied they had struck any such deal.
