However Mr Trump, the U.S. president, and government agencies involved defended the response and insisted on the need to secure the border with Mexico. USA border police then fired rubber bullets and tear gas into the crowd of men, women and children.

Mexico has begun taking steps to increase security near its border with the United States.

Over the weekend, USA border agents shot several rounds of tear gas after some migrants attempted to penetrate various points along the border and threw what appeared to be rocks at US authorities.

Mexico has been in negotiations with the United States over a possible scheme to keep migrants in Mexico while their asylum claims are processed. The violent clashes took place near the border crossing separating the Mexican city of Tijuana from San Diego.

"If they're launching tear gas, it's better to head somewhere else", he said. "He did not say welcome them when they had the right papers". With a backlog of cases that number into the thousands, many migrants appear set to linger along the border for months, if not longer.

CBP Commissioner Kevin McAleenan told reporters Monday that as many as 1,000 people that were part of a migrant caravan traveling through Central America and Mexico sought to enter the USA illegally.

Rodney Scott, chief US Border Patrol agent in San Diego, said the vast majority of those assembled at the border were economic migrants who would not qualify for asylum, adding there were few women and children.

Sunday's confrontation at the border occurred where there is already a physical barrier.

Wall reportedly apologized to Brooks shortly afterward, as well as his teammates the next day, league sources confirmed. Wall also cussed out head coach Scott Brooks and was fined.

Mexico's foreign ministry said it presented a diplomatic note to the US government on Monday calling for an investigation into the use of tear gas directed toward Mexican territory.

"Mexico should move the flag waving Migrants, many of whom are stone cold criminals, back to their countries", he said. "Congress, fund the WALL!"

The group was stopped by a chain-link fence topped with barbed wire and US Border Patrol agents firing tear gas and rubber bullets.

The vast majority of people attempting to file an asylum claim are allowed to do so once they reach the USA, but often don't see a judge for several years while they wait to see a judge.

But U.S. Customs and Border Protection Commissioner Kevin McAleenan said the administration's concerns about the caravan "were borne out and on fully display" Sunday.

"On the other side, unfortunately, I can not agree on the use of force, not even that type of force that is tear gas or rubber bullets", Mayor Juan Manuel Gastelum said.

It was not immediately clear whether those throwing objects at United States agents were part of the caravan, MSNBC reported. "A large group rushed the area, and they were throwing rocks and bottles at my men and women, putting them in harm's way as well as other members of the caravan".

With the caravan as a backdrop, Trump has used national security powers to circumvent longstanding immigration law to deny asylum to anyone caught crossing the border illegally. Officials have been processing less than 100 applications per day, according to The Associated Press.
