DHS Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen agreed with this assessment in lengthy Facebook statement
President Trump threatened to shut U.S. border with Mexico permanently if migrant caravan members are not deported

U.S. Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen said late Monday night that some migrants at the U.S.-Mexico border have been using women and children as ‘human shields’ in clashes with federal agents, confirming what U.S. Border Patrol officers and their labor union claimed hours earlier.

And she said hundreds of convicted criminals including rapists and cihld abusers are known to be among the ‘predominantly male’ convoy of Central Americans who have set up camp in Tijuana, waiting to cross into California.

‘It appears in some cases that the limited number of women and children in the caravan are being used by the organizers as “human shields” when they confront law enforcement,’ Nielsen said in a statement posted on Facebook.

President Donald Trump claimed Monday evening in Mississippi that some of the adults trying to cross the border illegally aren’t related to the children who accompany them. He called them ‘grabbers.’

Nielsen also increased DHS’s count of known convicts in the ‘organized’ caravan, saying: ‘This is serious.’

‘[A]t this point we have confirmed that there are over 600 convicted criminals traveling with the caravan flow,’ she said. ‘This includes individuals known to law enforcement for assault, battery, drug crimes, burglary, rape, child abuse and more.’
