Hundreds of migrants tried to evade the police and cross from Tijuana, Mexico, into San Diego. The U.S. Customs and Border Protection Agency responded by firing tear gas and closing the border in both directions. Thousands of migrants from Central America have been living in a shelter in Tijuana.The police, carrying riot shields, formed a new line and appeared to contain the rush of migrants one-hundred yards or more from the crossing. They erected metal barriers on the roads and sidewalks leading to the main border crossing for cars and trucks. A smaller group of migrants tried to make their way to a train border crossing a few hundred yards away, where they were stopped by tear gas fired by United States Customs and Border Protection officers.
