National Border Patrol Council President Brandon Judd: “The way these people rushed the border was absolutely monstrous. They pushed women and children up front and then behind those women and children, they started throwing rocks, cement bricks, they started throwing bottles at our Border Patrol agents.”
“We were forced to use the action, adding that they did not use “kinetic force” on any children and instead launched tear gas into the area to force the crowd to disperse.
Border Patrol unleashed tear gas and pepper balls to disperse the crowd of migrants trying to cross the border in Tijuana, Mexico on Sunday. According to San Diego Chief Border Patrol Agent Rodney Scott, agents did not use dispersion techniques until after migrants had struck several agents with projectiles.
“Several agents were actually struck by rocks,” Scott said, before revealing that the migrants pushed women and children to the front of their group to discourage agents from responding to rock-throwing with force.
“What we saw over and over yesterday was that the group — the caravan, as we call them — would push women and children to the front and then begin, basically, rocking our agents,” Scott asserted.
According to the border patrol agents with the job of controlling the influx of invading migrants from the caravan, the mostly male migrant caravan ushered women and children to the front then used them as human shields.
“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. https://t.co/w67XCL3JqD pic.twitter.com/ZWrl4N2bOM

CNN is actually trying to justify these invaders throwing rocks because they understand “they are frustrated.” Fake news CNN is at it again.
