  • U.S. Customs and Border Protection, officers block the Otay Mesa port of entry from Mexico into the United States early

Officials say one Border Patrol agent was hospitalized after multiple agents were assaulted by illegal immigrants near Tucson.

Homeland Security said Friday that a convicted murderer was among the members of the migrant caravan, and was caught trying to sneak into the US late last week.

An advocate for USA border enforcement says we can be thankful President Donald Trump's border enforcement policies are keeping thousands of migrants stuck in Mexico.

The mayor of Tijuana added that whoever organized this migrant caravan needs to be held accountable and face criminal charges.

Mexican authorities began moving Central American migrants out of an overcrowded shelter near the US border and taking them to a former concert venue much farther away in Tijuana, warning Friday that services will be cut off at the first site.

The memo was circulated amid reports that US President Donald Trump has told aides he has considered replacing Nielsen and other officials in his Cabinet, frustrated with Nielsen's lack of progress on immigration and border enforcement. The Health Department said 6,000 are in the city, while U.S. Department of Homeland Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen said this week that there are 8,500 spread across Tijuana and nearby Mexicali.

"Why are (the police) treating us like this if we're not causing them or the Mexican people any trouble?" he said. Authorities on the U.S. side of the border used tear gas to disperse the migrants.

Officials said Friday that one caravan member, a 46-year-old Honduran man convicted of murder, was arrested trying to cross the border illegally.

US authorities say assailants threw a "hail of rocks" at Border Patrol agents in the Sunday chaos that erupted during a protest against USA asylum laws, striking four who escaped serious injury.

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

US asylum officers are processing no more than 100 claims a day, and asylum seekers have been warned that they could be stuck waiting in Tijuana for many more weeks, if not months.

The migrant caravan's members ventured through Mexico towards the U.S. carrying hope for a better future.
