1. A mixed reaction is pouring in over the border this weekend where about 500 migrants tried to rush the southern US border near San Diego. Border patrol agents shut it down in an attempt to stop the group from crossing, it has since been reopened. This all started after what organizers said would be a peaceful march from a stadium in Mexico where most of the 5,000 migrants in a caravan are staying. Hundreds decided to protest the slow pace that US asylum claims are processed. When they got closer to the US, some in the group pushed past Mexican police, climbed fences and crossed the riverbank to get to the border. Mexican authorities arrested 39 people as of Sunday night and say they plan to deport the 500 who tried to cross into the US.
