DHS Arrests Convicted Murderer Who Was Traveling with the Caravan Migrants

Sunday's incident occurred at the border in Tijuana, where thousands of caravan members have been arriving in recent weeks after fleeing poverty and violence in Central America.

The decision not to prosecute came despite President Donald Trump's vow that the US will not tolerate lawlessness and after extensive preparations were made for the caravan, including deployment of thousands of active-duty troops to the border.

Meanwhile, Secretary of Defense James Mattis said this week USA troops deployed to the border may stay longer than previously expected.

"Why are (the police) treating us like this if we're not causing them or the Mexican people any trouble?" he said.

A Honduran mother said that she was pressured to join the border rush on November 25 that culminated in American Border Patrol officers shooting tear gas into the mob to disperse them.

Overcrowding along with cooler temperatures and rain has already helped spread illness among migrants, including flu-like sicknesses, lice and chicken pox, according to city officials who declined to be named because they were not authorized to speak to the media. They were accused of illegally entering the country, which is a federal crime.

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. Homeland Security officials have said as many as 600 people in the caravans have criminal records, but have not specified how they know, or given many details.

US authorities are working on a new system to better record evidence if similar circumstances arise in the future, the official said.

U.S. customs and border control officers fired tear gas canisters into Mexico at dozens of migrants who tried to rush border fencing on Sunday.

Central Americans are typically turned over to ICE, which flies them back home.
