Tijuana, Mexico - People in the migrant caravan in Tijuana successfully breached the U.S. border wall on Sunday, but were repelled with gas.
Hundreds of the immigrants broke through the Mexico blockade to make it to the border wall.
“They’re not even carrying guns — so just relax,” Mattis explained, speaking to reporters on Wednesday just hours after the White House issued its “use of force” order.
“There has been no call for any lethal force from DHS [Department of Homeland Security],” he said. “There is no armed element going in. I will determine it based upon what DHS asks for and a mission analysis. And then when we do that, we’ll let you know what it is.”
Waving Honduran flags, a group of mostly men opened up a gap in the wall. However, some women also pushed small children in strollers to the breach in the wall. Then, immigrants started throwing rocks and U.S. agents responded with gas.
Honduran migrant Ana Zuniga, 23, said she saw migrants open a small hole in concertina wire at a gap on the Mexican side of a levee, at which point U.S. agents fired tear gas at them. "We ran, but when you run the gas asphyxiates you more," she told the AP while cradling her 3-year-old daughter Valery in her arms.

Unfortunately I believe these invaders will be granted access across the border, with or without “asylum”, legally or illegally. There are too many people here (judges, politicians, socialists) who will make sure they’re seen as the great humanitarians who spited Trump and his followers and led the progressives to a great win for the world.
It saddens me to see people waving another country’s flag throwing rocks at our law enforcement agencies attempting to bypass the laws that govern the very land they want into to. It saddens me more that so many would willingly allow it to happen.

How is this not considered an invasion?

If true, this does not sound like peaceful people looking for asylum. Their actions are more like an invading force determined to break the border into the U.S.
Did you see any such action?
It looks really quiet now.
