TUPELO, Miss — The Latest on President Donald Trump in Mississippi (all times local):
President Donald Trump is defending his administration’s response to Central American migrants who tried to illegally cross the border in Tijuana.
The action on Sunday prompted a chaotic clash that included U.S. agents firing choking tear gas into the crowds.
Trump said Monday at a campaign rally in Mississippi that he is sending the caravan members a clear message: “Turn around and go back home.”
He tells that crowd that “we don’t want those people in Mississippi” and that migrants are “not coming through anymore” illegally.
