Border Patrol Chief Shows Who’s Boss: Arrests 42 Migrants, Destroys Liberals’ Tear Gas Narrative

Published

As migrants continued their push north they clashed with American border agents protecting our nation’s border. The Top Border Patrol official released a statement from San Diego stating his agents were forced to use non lethal methods to push back the migrants after they were attacked.

The agents deployed tear gas as the migrants attempted to break through the barrier, things were escalating fast and the agents acted s they were trained to do.

The Washington Examiner reported on the events that took place:

“When the threat is to our personnel or to protect others, you gotta do what you gotta do,” San Diego Sector Chief Patrol Agent Rodney Scott told CNN about migrants’ weekend attempt to storm the border near the San Ysidro port of entry. “What we saw over and over yesterday is that the group, the caravan as we call them, would push women and children to the front and then begin basically rocking our agents.”

“The group immediately started throwing rocks and debris at our agents, taunting the agents, and once our agents were assaulted, and the numbers started growing, we had two or three agents at a time initially facing hundreds of people at a time, they deployed tear gas to protect themselves and to protect the border,” Scott said.

None of the estimated 5,800 active-duty troops that were deployed to the border were on the front lines, Scott said.

The top regional Border Patrol agent said his personnel responded to the attacks by targeting the instigators, not bystanders, adding that others in the vicinity would have been affected by deterrents like tear gas.

Photos captured by reporters at the scene Sunday showed agents deploying tear gas at an opening in the wall where people had tried to squeeze between and pass through while others standing by threw rocks aimed at those north of the wall.
The sector has been in the process of replacing a six-foot-tall metal barrier with an 18-foot-tall bollard-style wall. Due to construction, the areas between the old and new barriers are easier to pass through.

The Department of Homeland Security estimated last week that 6,000 migrants who had traveled to Mexico from Central America as part of a caravan were in Tijuana. Border Patrol last week shut down the San Ysidro port due to reports some in the group were planning to run through the port of entry without being inspected by Customs and Border Protection officers, which is illegal.

Scott said those involved in Sunday’s surge could have sought asylum but chose to attempt to trespass.

“If they were truly asylum seekers they would have walked up with their hands up and surrendered,” Scott said.

“What I saw on the border yesterday was not people walking up to Border Patrol agents and asking to claim asylum,” Scott said.

Three agents were hit by rocks, but their tactical gear protected them from serious injury, according to Border Patrol. A “few” government vehicles were also damaged. Forty-two people were arrested for illegally entering the U.S., most of whom were adult men.

Scott said CBP has no plans to increase the number of officers accepting asylum claims at San Ysidro, which is the largest border crossing in the country and sees 100,000 people cross daily.

“Any additional resources we assign to processing asylum seekers literally slows down the economy of the United States. It slows down people that legitimately cross back and forth across our borders, to include the international airports,” Scott said. “We get complaints constantly with the lines as they are. We just have limited resources.”

Yuma Mayor Declares Emergency Over Migrant Crisis – City Overrun

Published

on

This story originally appeared on WeBuildTheWall.news & was edited & republished with permission:

Sounds like a humanitarian and a national security crisis to me and I’m not the only one who sees it that way. Yuma Mayor Douglas Nicholls just declared an emergency in his city due to what he said was the strain caused by the incoming flow of migrants. The agents and authorities are simply being overwhelmed and swarmed by these invaders.

1,800 came over the border in one day… one day! Half of those detained on Tuesday crossing over from Mexico were found in the El Paso, Texas area, according to officials. Border patrol said more than 980 were apprehended before 5 am after crossing in three large groups. Yuma is having just as rough a time of it.

Mayor Nicholls went public with this on Facebook. He explained that he “proclaimed a local emergency” in the city “due to the migrant family releases overwhelming the local shelter system.” And it’s not just the sheer numbers of illegal immigrants… it’s the economic burden, the crime, the drugs, the danger to children and disease that is playing into this massive emergency state.

Nicholls is begging the government to step in and do something here. I don’t blame him in the least. They need help and fast. “I am calling upon the federal government to alleviate the humanitarian crisis in Yuma, as our NGO’s are overcapacity and cannot sustain providing this aid,” the post said. Here’s a thought – ship all of them to sanctuary cities just as Trump proposed. Works for me. Better yet, don’t let them in at all unless they come here legally.

From Fox News:

“Nicholls, in a video, laid out his reasoning behind the declaration, saying that he ultimately feels that its what’s best for both Yuma and the incoming migrants.

“So it’s with a heavy heart that I declare that we’re at this point but it is something that I believe we need to do to make sure that our community is maintained and that the human rights of all the migrants are also maintained and that we have a path forward that respects both,” he said.

“The city of Yuma, Ariz., also tweeted about the proclamation, citing Nicholls, claiming that released migrants were coming into the area faster than they were leaving.

“The move by the local official comes after President Trump declared a national emergency at the nation’s southern border earlier this year.”

“The transportation network is just insufficient to keep up with demand,” Nicholls said. “And the backlog of people staying at the shelter has created this capacity issue.” The media and the left are playing it up that the poor illegal immigrants don’t have money for bus fare to go to relatives while they await their court date. But the issue here is that they should not be here in the first place.

Now, the city is hoping for a FEMA response. In signing the declaration, Nicholls said he hopes to draw national attention to the plight of local communities struggling with a federal issue, adding that he’s talking to officials in other border cities and calling on them to issue similar emergency declarations. The mayor stated that he had spoken to Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey, who signaled his support for the declaration.

Today I proclaimed a local emergency in Yuma, due to the migrant family releases overwhelming the local shelter system. I am calling upon the federal government to alleviate the humanitarian crisis in Yuma, as our NGO’s are overcapacity and cannot sustain providing this aid. I signed the proclamation of emergency and soon after spoke with media at approximately 3:15 pm (MST). You can view via the video below:

“We will review any declaration once we receive it,” according to a statement Tuesday night from Patrick Ptak, a Ducey spokesman. “Ultimately, this humanitarian crisis is the result of Congress’ failure to act. It will only be solved by Congress actually doing something, and the governor has vocally urged Congress to quit playing politics and take action. If only they would.

“In the wake of their inaction, our office is working with local governments, non-profits and our federal partners to maximize available resources and ensure proper coordination between ICE officials and groups providing temporary services to migrants.”

Nicholls fears hungry migrants roaming the streets. He should fear much worse than that. “This isn’t a natural disaster,” Nicholls said. “But it is a disaster.”

“… the local emergency exceeds control of the services, personnel, equipment and facilities of the City of Yuma and requires the combined efforts, cooperation, and resources of the Yuma community including local and non-profit agencies such as the Red Cross, Catholic Community Services, The Salvation Army, Yuma Community Food Bank, churches, the County of Yuma, the State of Arizona, and the United States of America,” the statement said.

It’s long past time for the wall to be built and We Build The Wall should start their project this month. Meanwhile, President Trump is still scratching and fighting for every mile of barrier put up. Put the blame of all this where it belongs… squarely on the left. #WeBuildTheWall
