The Mexican government protested on Friday against the U.S. Border Patrol's repeated firing of tear gases against Mexicans on Mexican territory.

"The firing of tear gases does not contribute at all to constructive understanding and collaboration, which should prevail between both countries for the attention to the border violence," stated Mexico's Foreign Ministry in a statement on Friday.

The Mexican Foreign Ministry added that it requested "a thorough investigation of the (U.S.) aggressions against a Mexican minor" that occurred in January.

The U.S. Border Patrol agents fired tear gas onto the Mexican side of the border in January, and in one of the incidents wounded a boy, whose identity was withheld, near the Mexico-U.S. border zone in Tijuana city, in the northwestern Mexican state of Baja California.

Mexico said these sort of actions are "unacceptable," even if they were "response to harassment against Border Patrol troops by people in the Mexican side," the statement added.

The U.S. aggressive acts have caused concern in Tijuana's Libertad de Tijuana neighborhood and other sectors of the Mexico-U.S. border, the Mexican Foreign Ministry said.

Mexico's embassy in Washington and its consulate in San Diego (U.S.), city neighboring Tijuana, received instructions to report the Mexican governments concern to the United States.
