(National Sentinel) Media Mirage: Once more, the disgustingly dishonest “mainstream media” is creating a false narrative about what happened along a tense portion of the U.S.-Mexico border on Sunday to bash POTUS Donald Trump’s enforcement policies.
Media outlets around the world have published a photograph of a migrant woman and two small children evading what appears to be a tear gas assault by U.S. Border Patrol agents. And while agents did indeed deploy tear gas, they did so a) after warning migrants they would be gassed if they rushed the border (which they did); and b) after they came under assault by migrants themselves.
Border Patrol officials said their agents were being attacked with rocks thrown at them by migrant males using women and children as shields.
San Diego Chief Border Patrol Agent Rodney Scott said that personnel did not use tear gas, pepper balls, and other dispersion techniques until after his agents were attacked.
“Several agents were actually struck by rocks,” Scott said, The Daily Caller reported, before noting mostly male migrants pushed women and children to the front of their group in order to keep agents from responding to the rock-throwing with force as they rushed the border at Tijuana.
“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 said.
“They use women and children regularly,” National Border Patrol Council President Brandon Judd told The Daily Caller.
After CNN host John Berman asserted that the majority of the thousands of migrants at or near the border only wanted asylum, Scott took issue with that along with his characterization of the Border Patrol’s actions as inappropriate.
“You took issue with the idea that these were people seeking asylum. The caravan, though, 5,000 to 9,000, depending on which count you believe that is in Tijuana right now, those are people coming to the border, as far as you know, for asylum, isn’t it?” Berman asked.
“I do not believe that is true. I believe there are definitely people in that group that are trying — that are going to try to claim asylum. The vast majority of those, from what we call the northern triangle are economic migrants, though,” Scott said.
“What I saw at the border yesterday was not people walking up to Border Agents and asking to claim asylum. Matter of fact, one of the groups that I watched … they passed 10 or 15 marked Border Patrol agents walking … west to east, numerous uniformed personnel, as they were chanting, waving a Honduran flag and throwing rocks at the agents. If they were truly asylum seekers, they would’ve just walked up with their hands up and surrendered, and that did not take place,” he explained.
CNN and the rest of the ‘mainstream’ media aren’t interested in these truths, however. Their mission is to lie to the American people about what is really taking place along the U.S.-Mexico border and blame that “tyrant of all tyrants,” POTUS Trump, for creating a ‘crisis.’
The fact is if the migrants were not in the proximity of the U.S. border in the first place, nothing would be happening to them. They have placed themselves there on their own volition.
Therefore, anything that happens to them from here on out is going to be their fault an no one else’s.
