US security forces clashed with immigrants on the border with Mexico

 US border security forces closed San Ysidro post between San Diego and Tijuana cities and clashed with immigrants who attempted to illegally enter the United States on Sunday,
 US officials used tear gas to contain the immigrants in Tijuana, Mexico. The clashes began around 17h (Brasília time).
 The border is busiest in the Western Hemisphere. Traffic was suspended in both directions at the San Ysidro station.
 Mexican police also tried to control immigrants - many rushed to the US border. Helicopters from the US and Mexican governments also flew over the site.
 The Mexican government said nearly 500 immigrants attempted to cross the US border "violently" and promised to deport Central American migrants attempting to enter the United States illegally.
On Monday, US authorities had already closed the same San Ysidro crossing with information indicating that some immigrants were planning to forcibly enter the United States.
 In recent days, the tension in the currency between the two countries has increased. In a caravan, thousands of Central American immigrants try to reach the United States through Mexico to escape poverty and violence.
 In response, US President Donald Trump suspended for 90 days the entry of immigrants by Mexico and signed an order that prevents the granting of refuge to anyone who enters the country illegally.
 According to data from the US Department of Homeland Security (DHS), about 7,000 migrants wait across the border, mainly in the cities of Tijuana and Mexicali, to file the asylum application.
