No one arrested in border clash is prosecuted.
No criminal charges will be filed against any of the 42 people associated with a caravan of Central American migrants who were arrested in a clash that ended with U.S. authorities firing tear gas into Mexico. Customs and Border Protection declines to say why none of the 42 were prosecuted but a U.S. official says many came as families and, in other cases, authorities didn't collect enough information to pursue charges, including names of the arresting officers. The official was not authorized to discuss the matter publicly and spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity.
