TIJUANA, Mexico — A peaceful march of Central American migrants approaching the southwestern United States border at San Diego’s San Ysidro border crossing was met by Mexican federal police on Sunday. So thereafter, US Customs and Border Protection announced the border crossing was closed and began firing tear gas through erected fences at the asylum seekers.

Many of the asylum seekers, who were met with tear gas, were women and children.

The San Ysidro border crossing is the largest land crossing that separates San Diego, California and Tijuana, Mexico.
