Border Agents use Tear Gas to Stop Waves of Undocumented Immigrants

Border Agents use Tear Gas to Stop Waves of Undocumented Immigrants

Border Patrol agents on Saturday used tear gas and pepper spray to stop a horde of undocumented individuals as they rushed a port of entry in Pharr, Texas.

Nearly 50 people were blocked as they attempted to cross the Rio Grande by way of the Pharr-Reynosa International Bridge.

The group rushed the bridge in three waves, said one officer, beginning at 4:00 in the morning.

“Ignoring commands to stop, the group suddenly rushed the temporary barricades, bent metal poles, and disabled the concertina wire affixed to the barrier,” said the officer. “Several males in the group disregarded commands to stop and physically pushed through the barriers…When confronted by CBP officers, the combative individuals began assaulting the officers by punching, kicking, and attempting to grab the officers’ protective devices.”

At least 16 people were taken into custody; federal charges are pending against 14.

A similar incident occurred last November, when hundreds of migrants rushed a border fence in Tijuana. CPB agents used tear gas to disperse the crowd after they were attacked with projectiles.

This time around, migrants are frustrated by new policies which force asylum seekers to wait in Mexico while their cases are processed in the United States. The new rule is part of a June deal with Mexico that seeks to limit the flow of Central American migrants through Mexico into the United States.

The Mexican government has promised to invest millions of dollars to improve migrant shelters, but most of these facilities are located in southern Mexico far from the US border.

Author’s Note: It is unfortunate that we are having to use tear gas to stop people from entering the country, but people need to know that they cannot cross the border by forming a mob and rushing in. If we let that happen, it will happen again, amplified by ten.

    Illegal acts by criminals can and should be stopped. It’s way past time to put an end to this nonsense. These law breakers are counting on the usual weak response promoted by liberal ”progressive” anarchists.
    Stop them NOW!

          You are every bit as ignorant as your writing proves, but so typical for a supporter of Obama or Hillary Clinton. Get an education, learn to write so it can be understood, do some research and come back when you can write a coherent sentence without using vulgarities.

      First off Alice they are not undocumented immigrants, they are ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS who are breaking the laws of the USA. They are attacking officers and assaulting them which gives them the right to use deadly force to protect themselves and the USA.. Put the Guard on the border with orders to kill if assaulted. Any that get across take them to Nancy’s house and leave them there for her where as she wants them her.

      I am thankful for the use of tear gas. I was under the impression that the men and women on our side of the border were actually helpless/weaponless when it came to personal protection.

    IT SEEMS THE DEMOCRATS DON’T CARE ABOUT US AMERICANS SAFETY, THEY WANT TO LET ANYTHING AND EVERYTHING TO COME ACROSS OUR BORDERS AND OUR BORDER AGENTS SAFETY IS HURTING, NOT ONLY THAT, BUT WHAT ABOUT ALL THE ILLNESS THEY BRING WITH THEM AND HOW MUCH MONEY IT WILL COST THE AMERICAN TAX PAYERS, FOR HOUSING, TO FEED THEM AND TO GIVE HEALTH CARE AND FOOD STAMPS. THE ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS ARE LIVING BETTER THEN SOME OF OUR AMERICAN VETERANS AND OUR OLD PEOPLE WHO ARE HAVING A HARD TIME AND THE COAL MINERS. NOW THE DEMOCRATS SAY THEY CARE AND ARE WORKING FOR THE AMERICAN PEOPLE, NOW THAT’S A LIE, THE ONLY THINGS THEY CARE ABOUT, IS THE WALLS THEY HAVE AROUND THEIR HOMES, A OPEN BORDERS, LBST RIGHTS,,MORE ABORTIONS, IMPEACHING PRESIDENT TRUMP AND THEY HAVE NOT PASS ANY REAL LAWS TO HELP THE REAL AMERICANS. THEY NEED TO BE FIRED AND LET TO GO HOME WITHOUT PAY. IF THE CONGRESS WAS PAID THE MINIMUM WAGE THEY WOULD ALL STARVE TO DEATH AND THEY WOULD BE ON WELFARE AND MEDICARE

    BEST MOVE THE US HAS TAKEN TO STEM THE FLOW OF INVADING VIGILANTES IS TO KEEP THEM AS FAR FROM OUR BORDER AS POSSIBLE. WE SHOULD BE FINANCING THE IMPROVEMENTS TO THEIR FACILITIES ON THEIR SOUTHERN BORDER

    After the circus in Washington yesterday it is proven its up to the sensible voters to elect sensible & patriotic candidates in 2020. True American patriots will secure our borders & work for the people and not waste our tax dollars.

    I say put every democrat politician on the border and line them up with their beloved illegals and start shooting . This is caused by every democrat . Invasions upon America that should have been met with force .
    It’s past pathetic and ridiculous any stupid American who whines and cries and protests for these lazy people who just want to take and be kept up should be on that line too
    They have brought diseases into this country that can wipe out the entire country . And yet they have not been quarantined !!California is where the outbreaks are .
    These people will be whined over by idiot Americans who will destroy and protest and harm another American because of them .
    But will cheer at killing an American baby laying there waiting on its mama to pick it up the first time . There will be no crying in front of God for your actions .

    The previous administrations created the lax immigration asylum processes/laws and detention centers, and they’ve never passed any meaningful measures to overhaul this mess to restrict/vet those who seek to come here legally and to stop those from entering our country illegally, not to mention, giving our Border Patrol Agents and other Law Enforcement Officials the monies, tools, resources, and barriers (Build the Wall!) they need to serve and protect the citizens of the United States–America 1st! President Trump inherited this nightmare and he’s been trying to fix the Immigration problems and loopholes since Day 1, but the Dirty Dems don’t care about us — they want Open Borders, illegal votes, and to make America a bankrupt 3rd world country! Drain the Swamp! No more free or subsidized housing, food stamps, Medicaid, education, or Social Security on the US Taxpayers’ payroll; it’s high time we care for our own at home!

    This is good I have known many people who abused the snap program. One in particular had two identifications and collected under both names. Recon this was some fifty [50] years ago.

    Mary Young,you should join the squad because it is obvious,truth and factual information are not part of your vocabulary! If you actually did some research you would know that Trump had nothing to do with this Policy it was our most corrupt POTUS ever your man obviously Obama! Try gaining some knowledge before flapping your lips like an idiot!
