President Donald Trump decided that “migrants” are not crossing the border. He decided that, and the people guarding it at the various checkpoints are taking non-lethal measures to be sure that objective is achieved. That includes the tossing of tear gas canisters over the weekend. The target, of course, was to blind the migrant horde. It now seems that the canisters may have rolled too far.
In a diplomatic note presented to the U.S. on Monday, Mexico’s foreign ministry called for “a full investigation” into the use of weapons directed toward Mexican territory on Sunday, a day after U.S. agents fired tear gas canisters toward migrants seeking to breach the border between Tijuana and California, according to Reuters.
Really? The Mexicans are going to try to tell the Donald J. Trump Administration to investigate defending ourselves against invasion? Do the people south of the border not get that the Americans defending it at this end were being pelted with rocks, a primitive weapon, but one that can kill?
Trump officials defended the use of force on the crowd of migrants, as they were seeking to cross the border illegally. Border officials also said some migrants were hurling rocks at authorities.
President Trump defended the use of force on Monday, saying border agents were forced into action because they were “being rushed by some very tough people.”
“Here’s the bottom line, nobody’s coming into our country unless they’re coming legally,” he added.
How hard is this to understand?
The Mexicans and the mainstream media claim that women and children were hit by the gas, a charge the administration denies, and use one video and a single photograph that has been questioned as being staged as proof.
The stakes at the southern border could not be higher. Thousands of young men are lined up ready to enter the United States illegally. Reports are coming from the “caravan” that women and children are being used as human shields and that the crowd is littered with those who do not have America’s best interests in mind.
We don’t want them crossing the border. How hard is this to understand.
