ZOMG: Mostly Peaceful Migrants Hit With Tear Gas By Border Agents!

The goings on at the border have made the Credentialed Media and Democrats, but I digress, Very Upset

Caravan crisis escalates with tear gas and entry closure at the border

U.S. authorities closed off the busiest port of entry along the U.S. border with Mexico on Sunday and fired tear gas at members of a Central American migrant caravan who had rushed the fencing that separates the countries.

Although the number of people at the border was relatively small, the unrest — with migrants attempting to climb fences and run through car lanes to reach the United States, and scenes of mothers and children choking on tear gas — represented a serious escalation of the crisis.

What had begun Sunday morning as a migrant protest of the slow pace of the U.S. asylum claims process devolved into a chaotic scramble in which hundreds made their way to the border hoping to cross onto U.S. soil. To block that from happening, and as some threw rocks and bottles, Customs and Border Protection (CBP) officers took the rare step of firing tear gas into Mexico as well as closing all legal vehicle and foot traffic to the San Ysidro border crossing, which U.S. officials say normally has about 100,000 visitors per day.

Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen said in a statement that the port of entry was closed “to ensure public safety in response to large numbers of migrants seeking to enter the U.S. illegally.”

Some of the migrants tried to breach the border fencing and “sought to harm CBP personnel by throwing projectiles at them,” the statement said.

Although the majority of the group approached and gathered at the fence peacefully, Mexico’s Interior Ministry said that hundreds tried to cross the border in a “violent manner.” Mexican authorities said they would deport anyone who tried to cross illegally.

“Peacefully”. The groups was in the hundreds, so, if hundreds tried to cross the border in a violent manner, that blows out that most approached and gathered peacefully.

“Desperation has led some people to really believe that crossing is possible,” said Alex Almendares, 22, a member of the caravan from Colón, Honduras. “The U.S. has given us no response, and the situation at the shelter keeps getting worse.”

We did not invite you. You decided to trek thousands of miles and Demand that the U.S. let you in and give you food, shelter, education, healthcare, and money, among others. And now y’all are rushing the border and throwing objects at U.S. law enforcement personnel.

“The U.S. isn’t letting us through and I can’t live in those conditions in the shelter,” she said. “I want to go to the U.S. and not stay in Mexico, because there are more opportunities.”

Mexico has offered asylum. The migrants want to take advantage of the richer country to Get Stuff.

Here’s what it looked like (more tweets with video at the link)


This has driven many liberals right off the edge of sanity, like Alyssa Milano, who is representative of what other libs are saying. Interestingly, none of them nor the media folks who are linking this all to Trump (forgetting that Mexican federal police showed up to stop the rioting on their side of the border, as well) are mentioning this happened under Obama

And none of them said boo back then.

    Political refugees are rarely invited.

    • formwiz says:

      Actually, they are, but these ain’t no refugees.

      These are gangbangers, terrorists, welfare wannabes, and all around slobs.

      Mexico offered them a place and they turned it down.

      • liljeffyatemypuppy says:

        “If they were truly asylum seekers, they would have just walked up and surrendered and that did not take place,” says the Chief Patrol Agent, San Diego Sector Border Control, defending the decision to use tear gas.


    • david7134 says:

      They are not political refugees. When asked the respond that they want a job.

  2. Dana says:

    If passive fences doesn’t stop them, and the use of tear gas and pepper spray is too horrible, the only thing left is to use real bullets.

    • Bill589 says:

      I agree. I was hit in the face with a thrown rock. Knocked me down, gave me a concussion and serious facial wound. I’m sure it could have been worse.

      If foreigners come to our border and start throwing rocks at Americans, I believe we should defend ourselves in the best manner possible. And I believe that if rocks are met with bullets, the dangerous rock throwing will end quickly, and less Americans will be injured/killed.

    • Jethro says:

      Do you think men and women in the US military would kill unarmed mothers and their children at the border? Is that what you’re recommending?

      Is that what the tRumpublican Party has become in 2 short years?

      • formwiz says:

        Most of those unarmed mothers and their children (and, according to witnesses, there are damned few of them) have been pushed to the fore by the “hombres” trying to give people like you something to whine about. It’s all in the plan, isn’t it?

        On the subject of shooting them down, that goes back to the “baby killer” days of the 60s. You animals never change, you just wait for the chance to trot out the same old lies.

        And the only one recommending killing unarmed mothers and their children is you. You just can’t wait, can you?

      • Dana says:

        But you’d be OK with our soldiers killing fighting aged males along the skirmish line?

        Your prose reveals your attempt: you would use the ‘human shields’ argument, “Oh, we can’t shoot the wimmins and chil’lins,” but conservatives are not stupid enough to fall for it.

        This invasion needs to be turned back, with lethal force if necessary. We won’t do that, but we should.

        • formwiz says:

          He is, after all, your average VC wannabe.

        • Jethro says:

          There was no need for a “skirmish line”. tRump engineered this entire mess to goose his civilian troops for the mid-terms, and is just continuing your motivation.

          He could just as easily have set up an orderly process to evaluate requests for asylum, but he correctly read his supporters’ mood to discourage all immigration, especially of those ‘vile’ browns.

          Grown-ups will fix this once tRump is gone.

          Invasion! ***snigger***

          • Dana says:

            By “an orderly process to evaluate requests for asylum” you mean letting them into the United States, giving them the opportunity to just vanish into the interior.

            I could support “an orderly process to evaluate requests for asylum,” if such offices were set up in Mexico, not allowing them on American soil, and every single asylum application was summarily rejected.

          • formwiz says:

            They tried to rush the fence, what else do you do?

            And even the fake news doesn’t think Trump did this. Like you, they’re praying one of the illegals gets shot, but I take it this “Trump engineered this entire mess ” is the latest paranoia down at the Daily Worker.

            There is an orderly process, both here and in Mexico, but the savages wanted to rush the fence so they could melt into the barrio.

            Grown-ups will fix this once tRump is gone.

            Kerosene Maxine? Occasional Cortex? Schiff for Brains?

            Trump and his people are the grown-ups.


            Well, if you say you are…

      • david7134 says:

        As with every comment you make, all you do is exude ignorance and stupidity. I once thought the two were the same until you came along. First, the caravan is a hostile force approaching our border and it is composed mostly of fighting aged men. Second, the individual soldier might not shot one of these people, that is why they are trained as a unit. When the soldiers commander says fire, not a good idea to be down range, you will die. Then you start your silly, stupid, Grace school stuff about republicans and conservatives when this crisis was put together by your bunch.

        • Jethro says:

          Invasion? LOL. Hundreds of people armed with stones, and tRump has his ‘base’ ready to kill. You are either incredibly naïve or just plain vile. I think one-third the former and two-thirds the latter.

          • formwiz says:

            Funny how the only one talking about killing is Jeffery. It’s like he can’t wait to see the blood flowing. And you can be killed by a rock with a well-muscled young arm behind it.

            Goliath comes to mind.

            BTW We’ve all by now seen the woman pictured as “fleeing” the tear gas (BP vets say it was used about once a week when Zippy was Preezy) who says she’s got 5 kids in tow coming to find the kids’ father (notice no mention of the word esposo) in LA.

            So riddle me this, and I’m sure geography is another one of those things Jeffery thinks he knows, ignoring all the logistical issues of dragging 5 kids north, if Dad is in Loosiana, why’s she walking to San Deego?

          • Jethro says:

            if Dad is in Loosiana (sic), why’s she walking to San Deego (sic)?

            Assuming you’re typing the truth, it may be because it’s a 600 mile swim from Mexico to Louisiana, made tougher with children. Google Maps is free. You should try it.

    Who said that? He said self defense against the rock throwers, not unarmed mothers and daughters. Reading comprehension is your friend.

    – Not an invasion
    – Hundreds of miles away
    – Would not jump border wall

    I wonder if anyone bothers to think that the cia or one of the 3 digit security apparatus has not already infiltrated this caravan and is giving rather detailed information back to the United States. Of course not. We would never think to do something like that. Our intel services are too busy trying to drum up dirt on Trump to do actual intel work.

    Of course they have been infiltrated by probably several intel agencies including Mexico and half of the South America nations along with probably several more. The fact we know so much about the number of criminals within this caravan is not guess work. Its based upon intel by infiltration. It would be a simple task for the CIA to just waltz into the crowd as it marched and do their thing.

    I haven’t seen any White Nationalists on the border patrolling. I’ve not heard of one death caused by the United States. I don’t think a single shot has been fired by the US at these people stuck in Mexico. But I can assure you that if they don’t hurry up and leave the cartels will start coming out in the street because their drugs are being handicapped by the United States Military NOW patrolling the Mexico border.

    The Cartels will clean this up rather quickly if it drags on much longer.

    George Soros doesn’t give a shit about human life. His agenda is the downfall of western civilization so that socialism and communism might rule the former Russian Page who was raised under communist flags.

    Born in Budapest, Soros survived Nazi Germany-occupied Hungary and immigrated to England in 1947 after Hungary was occupied by Soviet troops.

    REALLY? He immigrated under the vice grip of the Soviet Union who built walls to keep people in? Really?

    Soros is known as “The Man Who Broke the Bank of England” because of his short sale of US$10 billion worth of pounds sterling, which made him a profit of $1 billion during the 1992 Black Wednesday UK currency crisis.[13] Based on his early studies of philosophy, Soros formulated an application of Karl Popper’s General Theory of Reflexivity to capital markets, which he claims renders him a clear picture of asset bubbles and fundamental/market value of securities, as well as value discrepancies used for shorting and swapping stocks.

    A wall street darling willing to ruthlessly destroy the savings of the middle class for his own profit. Yet he is the darling of the left because he says what they like to hear and they have no compunction taking his money and sowing discord with it.

    The Democratic party is the part of wall street and corporations and Billionaires. They are the party who is more concerned with Hollywood than the poor and the blacks in inner cities. They are more concerned with the 100 transgenders than the 100’s of thousands of Union workers losing their jobs. They are cheering GM shutting down 5 plants and putting 15,000 union workers out of a job. They want them suffering so they vote for democrats. Pathetic how the left’s agenda is one of misery and despair to garner power and then do nothing for two years while spending two years fear mongering.

    According Reuters and MSLSD it is.

    Yeah, but (God, I love this) why march 3000 miles to CA when Laredo would cut 1000 miles off that distance, and Brownsville, at the mouth of the Bravo would trim 500 even more?

    Something smells here and it ain’t the chili.

    BTW Slipping ashore from a boat might be easier.
