Democrats Defend Caravan Criminals Attacking Border Patrol

“Our agents were being assaulted,” U.S. Border Patrol chief Carla Provost told Fox News on Monday. “A large group rushed the area and they were throwing rocks and bottles at my men and women, putting them in harm’s way, as well as other members of the caravan. We needed to disperse the group, and with that assaultive nature, it was imperative that we dispersed them from the area.”
Provost numbered the “migrant” caravan in the Tijuana area at 6,000, with about 1,000 participating in the assault. Department of Homeland Security boss Krystjen Neilsen had identified more than 500 criminals and said they used women and children as “human shields” in the assault. The violence did not bother Democrats, who preferred to target the Border Patrol’s response.
Hawaii Democrat Sen. Brian Schatz questioned whether the border patrol had deployed “chemical weapons” and demanded to know who gave the order. Democrats made no such demand when the administration of POTUS 44 deployed tear gas 26 times in 2012 and 27 times in 2013. In 2013, under the same administration, the Border Patrol used Pava Capasaicin, also known as pepper spray, a full 151 times. This willful ignorance was hardly the only lapse of Democrats and their media allies.
Many in the caravan doubtless want jobs but in the left’s default view the migrants are asylum seekers fleeing violence and persecution in their own countries. Even if those claims were legitimate, it does not follow that they should move to the United States.
