Nov 26, 2018 at 03:00 PM

The Quick Facts

  • Yesterday, November 25th, a group of migrants in Tijuana marched to the U.S. border to appeal to the U.S. government to speed up asylum claims.
  • Some from the group attempted to get through the fencing and wire separating the two countries, leading U.S. agents to fire tear gas.
  • Local authorities in Tijuana said that it had arrested 39 migrants for disturbing the peace and other charges related to the march and attempts to cross the international line.
  • Mexico’s Interior Ministry has said it would immediately deport those who tried to “violently” enter the U.S. from Tijuana.
  • Meanwhile, American authorities also shut down the nation’s busiest border crossing at San Ysidro for several hours.
  • Kirstjen Nielsen, Secretary of the Department of Homeland Security, said in a statement that U.S. authorities will continue to have a “robust” presence along the southwest border and that they will prosecute anyone who damages federal property or violates U.S. sovereignty.

Food For Thought

What should the United States do about the migrants seeking asylum at the southern border? Are the right policies being implemented?
