U.S. Customs and Border Protection says the border port of entry at San Ysidro near San Diego has been re-opened. The port of entry was shut down yesterday after a group of migrants rushed the border. It doesn't appear that any migrants breached the border and got into the U.S. However, Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen says some migrants did throw things at U.S. agents.
In a tweet, the CBP said tear gas was used against the migrants who threw the projectiles during their attempt to storm the U.S.-Mexico border fence. The agency said several agents were hit with the projectiles. Thousands of Central American migrants are camped out across the U.S. border in Tijuana hoping to claim asylum in the U.S.
