At least one man was wounded.

"It's a term that's used because, as you know, many people, it's a very violent, terrible thing, that they feel they have an advantage when they're with a young child, and they call them grabbers", he said.

Under Republican control of the Senate and House in recent years, US spending on combating violence and promoting the economies of El Salvador, Nicaragua, Guatemala and Honduras has declined.

Trump hit out again by threatening a permanent closure of the frontier, and defended the use of tear gas by USA border patrol, saying it was "very safe". "It's very safe", he later added.

Even more, Trump said the $5 billion would only cover the physical border.

Trump's push for only a fifth of border wall funding comes as Democrats are set to take the majority in the House in the new year and as illegal immigration soars at the U.S. -Mexico border with a caravan of 7,000 to 10,000 Central Americans arriving.

"They grab a child because they think they'll have a certain status by having a child". Meade said it might not be worth the time and resources to take them to trial.

"Rather than fueling tensions with hate speech and threats, governments should work together to tackle inequality, poverty, social exclusion, violence, insecurity, environmental degradation and persecution as the main drivers of migration in Central America".

Trump also told Politico that he saw little need to work with Congress over immigration reforms to address the roughly 700,000 so-called Dreamers, young adults who were brought to the United States illegally as children, and would instead see how court challenges play out.

US Customs and Border Protection Commissioner Kevin McAleenan said the administration's concerns about the caravan "were borne out and on full display" Sunday.

Ebrard's statements came as anxious Tijuana residents closed down a school next to a sports complex where thousands of migrants have been camped out for two weeks.

"Mexico should move the flag waving migrants, many of whom are stone cold criminals, back to their countries", he tweeted.

Instead, he said he wants to see first how court challenges play out over an Obama-era program that allowed Dreamers to stay in the country.

But the Salvadoran government also chided parents who put their children in harm's way by trying to jump the border, urging the "fathers and mothers who are in that area to avoid exposing their children to scenarios that put their lives, integrity and safety at risk". Although they lost control of the House of Representatives on November 6, Republicans still control both houses of Congress until the end of this session.

"I am firm", Trump said when asked if he would budge on the $5 billion in border wall funding.

Sitting at the Resolute Desk in the Oval Office, with a stack of papers, magazines and a soda at the ready, Trump said he now believes that a pitched battle over the border is a "total winner" politically for his party, and a loser for Democrats. Protesters split off toward multiple locations and pushed past Mexican police, according to US Customs and Border Protection officials.

McAleenan told reporters earlier 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 U.S. illegally.

Some migrants have given up trying to seek asylum in the United States. But if the court rules properly, there will be no problem with DACA and we'll get everything solved.
