U.S. fires tear gas to deter migrants making New Year's run at border

U.S. fires tear gas to deter migrants making New Year's run at borderU.S. border agents launched tear gas into Mexico early Tuesday to deter a group of migrants from crossing the U.S.-Mexico border at Tijuana, according to a Reuters witness and the U.S. government.

Tijuana has become a flashpoint in the debate over U.S. immigration policy, which has been intensified by the recent deaths of two migrant children in U.S. custody and a partial U.S. government shutdown over President Donald Trump’s $ 5 billion demand to lawmakers for a wall along the border with Mexico.
