Mexico starts moving some migrants to new shelter

California assessing legal action against use of force on Mexico border

The migrants were part of a caravan of about 7,000 people that arrived in Tijuana two weeks ago.

Officials with Mexico's human rights commission said the new facility opened on Thursday is bigger than the sports complex, which can handle only about 2,000 people, and will ensure migrants are not forced to sleep out in the open.

Gastélum said the blame lies on the unidentified organisers of the caravan. 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.

As thousands of migrants of asylum-seekers converge on the doorstep of the United States, what they won't find are armed American soldiers standing guard, that's because US military troops are prohibited from carrying out law enforcement duties.

Under the harsh immigration policies introduced by the administration of President Donald Trump, US border officials say they may have to stay put in Mexico for months before they can petition the authorities.

Overcrowding along with cooler temperatures and rain has already helped spread illness among migrants, including flu-like sicknesses, lice and chicken pox, according to city officials who declined to be named because they were not authorized to speak to the media.

The smallest would be the Lite model, followed by an S10 and S10 Plus with sizes quite similar to the S9 and S9 Plus. Samsung is getting in on the Black Friday festivities early with an incredible sale on its Galaxy smartphone line.

Rodney Scott, chief of the Border Patrol's San Diego sector, has said those arrested Sunday for illegal entry included 27 men, with the other 15 being women and children. That prompted Border Patrol agents to launch tear gas and pepper spray balls to quell the unrest.

The only two individuals Customs and Border Protection referred for prosecution ended up not being charged because they had medical problems and could not be held at the San Diego detention center, according to reports.

"Those are the real criminals because they're dealing with the lives of people", he added, referencing the organizer's behind the caravan whom he believes should face criminal charges.

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

CNN does not know the current status of those that were arrested.
