Migrants faced tear gas once again as they tried to cross the US-Mexico border from Tijuana to San Diego on New Year's Eve.

Around 100 Central American caravan migrants failed in their attempt to cross the border and enter the US on Monday.

Night - People - Sides - Border - New

As night fell and people on both sides of the border prepared to celebrate New Year's Eve, the migrants tried to cross over.

The US Customs and Border Protection (CPB) then hurled two smoke bombs at the migrants, holding them back.

The incident comes a month after the Trump administration was heavily criticized for tear-gassing mothers and children at the border.

US Border Patrol shot tear gas and rubber bullets at a group of migrants, including toddlers, as members of the caravan tried to storm the border in November.

Children - Mayhem - San - Ysidro - Port

Children were screaming and coughing in the mayhem at the San Ysidro Port of Entry when American agents tried to push the surging Central Americans back.

Donald Trump later defended the use of tear gas on the crowd, claiming that border agents were 'being rushed by some very tough people'.

Trump - Gas - Form - Gas

Trump also claimed the gas was 'very safe' and only a 'very minor form' of tear gas.

The president has yet to comment on Monday night's tear-gassing, although his rant against the Democrats for refusing to fund his wall has only continued amid the ongoing government shutdown.
