That didn't turn out to be the case; it appears numerous members of the "migrant caravan" were sold a bill of goods, and are just coming to realize that crossing the border will be much more hard than they imagined, particularly in light of the weekend's violence.

CNN crews that visited the Benito Juarez shelter found squalid conditions, including open sewage drains.

Photos of tear gas clouds near women and children who were among the mob of mostly men storming the border have gone viral, drawing condemnation internationally and at home, where congressional Democrats say it was a break with what America stands for.

Trump rallies Hyde-Smith voters as Espy pushes turnout
House of Representatives from 1987 to 1993 and as U.S. agriculture secretary in the Clinton administration from 1993 to 1994. On Nov. 15, another video surfaced online in which Hyde-Smith said making it more hard for people to vote is a "great idea".

He accused migrants of attacking U.S. Customs and Border Patrol agents with rocks and bottles, explaining that they responded with tear gas only to "stop the attacks".

Inside the sports complex, which has become the main facility sheltering migrants in Tijuana, migrants wait for hours in long lines for food.

Still stinging from the tear gas that beat back their attempt to breach the US-Mexican border, the migrant caravan is starting to lose hope. They now number more than 6,000 in a space the city government originally prepared for a third as many.

The 7,000-strong migrant caravan has created a number of extreme and conflicting narratives.

The group was stopped by a chain-link fence topped with barbed wire and US Border Patrol agents firing tear gas and rubber bullets. About 2,400 are in Texas and the remaining 1,400 are in Arizona. They include military police and engineering/logistic experts.

The incident forced a temporary closure of the major border crossing into San Diego.

"Our laws allow asylum seekers to apply for asylum at our southern border, but there is really no clear policy on how to do that", Nadler added. "The vast majority of migrants are seeking a better life - not confrontations with law enforcement".

Three tear gas canisters shot from the US side landed around Meza and her children, who range in age from toddlers to teenagers, she said in an interview at a Tijuana migrant shelter. "The ones that were suffering were the ones putting it out there". Asked how much the USA should contribute, Ebrard suggested the figure should be at least $20 billion.

As of Tuesday, News 8 crews spotted man border agents on ATVs and in SUVs along the border.

Jose Luis Tepeu, 22, from Guatemala, was sleeping on cardboard boxes on the ground.

Democratic Senator Jon Tester, who like Rubio is a member of the powerful Senate Appropriations Committee, predicted a border security deal would be struck in coming days. They did so safely and without any reported serious injuries on either side of the border.

Illegal immigration was a central theme of Trump's presidential bid, and he repeatedly invoked the issue ahead of the November 6 midterm elections as a caravan of migrants from Central America made their way toward the United States and deployed some 5,800 USA troops to the border. Elements of the group also engaged in dozens of assaults on agents and officers. The scenario is created to cause stress, and agents are forced to think quickly or face being shot, run over or hit with rocks. News 8's Chris Gros reports from San Ysidro.
