“i used to be scared,” she instructed BuzzFeed News. “I grabbed my daughters and ran… i assumed my children had been going to die with me as a result of the gas we inhaled.”

In The Meantime, a Honduran migrant at the border told AFP the u.s. government had began using tear gasoline as they neared the border.

“The alarm went off and so they began throwing tear fuel at us. a person got hit and many of kids fainted. So some folks were given rocks and threw them as a result of many kids have been fainting.”

The migrants have travelled in huge groups, dubbed “caravans”, for greater than FOUR,000km (2,500 miles) from Critical America.

President Trump has vowed to keep each migrant at the Mexican side of the border till courts have decided their cases, which means a few face a long wait.
