(National Sentinel) Truth Bomb: As the disgustingly dishonest Left-wing establishment media and commentariat continue to meltdown over the use of tear gas by Border Patrol and CBP agents under rock-and-bottle assault near Tijuana earlier this week, they won’t tell you how often tear gas and pepper spray was used against unruly migrants during the Obama regime.
That’s because outing Obama isn’t on their agenda — like, ever, because he’s their favorite Leftist.
But facts are facts even if the fake news media refuses to acknowledge or report them.
As reported by Breitbart News:
Under the Obama Administration, U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) law enforcement officials, including Border Patrol agents, utilized tear gas against migrants at or near the border at least 80 times between FY2012 and early FY2017.
CBP officials reported the use of tear gas and pepper spray to push back “assaultive” caravan migrants attempting to enter the U.S. illegally on Sunday. The agency began using these particular sprays during the Obama administration in 2010.
Breitbart News confirmed the CBP began using tear gas (2-chlorobenzylidene malononitrile – CS) in 2010, though the available usage data initiates in FY2012.
80 times. At least.
“CBP takes Sunday’s employment of use-of-force very seriously. CBP reviews and evaluates all uses of force incidents to ensure compliance with policy,” a CBP spokesman told Breitbart News in response to an inquiry.
“Over 1,000 individuals who were part of the so-called caravan attempted to cross illegally into the U.S. by breaching sections of the fence and using vehicle lanes in and near the San Ysidro Port of Entry. This group ignored law enforcement agencies in Mexico and assaulted U.S. Federal Officers and Agents assigned to respond to the situation in San Diego.”
“As a response to the assaults and to defuse this dangerous situation, trained CBP personnel employed less-lethal devices to stop the actions of assaultive individuals attempting to break into the U.S.,” the spokesman continued.
“CBP has been preparing for weeks for events like the one on Sunday. We have seen the use of violence by members of this so-called caravan who have attacked law enforcement personnel in Guatemala, Mexico and now the U.S. CBP will consider using all approved and available resources to protect travelers, caravan members, and our agents and officers.”
As we reported, Border Patrol officials have said that some migrants were using the cover of women and children to throw rocks and bottles at their agents on Sunday, which led to the retaliation.
We want to make this as clear as possible: We are not bringing these Obama-era stats to readers’ attention because we object to Border Patrol and CBP agents protecting themselves — with tear gas, pepper spray, or whatever means they feel is necessary. We don’t object. They should defend themselves as they protect our borders.
Rather, the point we are trying to make is that, once again, the lying mainstream media refuses to report all the facts involved because their objective isn’t to honestly portray what’s going on along our borders. Their objective is to “get Trump” no matter what it takes by creating false premises, incomplete narratives, and — whenever it becomes necessary — to ‘invent’ news out of thin air.
Obama had no choice; his first duty was to protect our country. But that is POTUS Trump’s first duty as well and it’d be nice if the ‘mainstream media’ would report this honestly.
