The American Left is outraged again and, as usual, at the wrong people for all the wrong reasons.

You likely have read or heard by now that the U.S. Border Patrol was forced to deploy pepper balls and tear gas against groups of caravan migrants who rushed the San Ysidro border entry point near San Diego on Sunday.

If all you consume is “mainstream” news you’ve also likely been told that’s the Border Patrol’s fault or, more specifically, POTUS Donald Trump’s fault because it’s his “policy.”

Neither of those assertions is true.

Yes, the Border Patrol did indeed use pepper balls and tear gas to disperse a large group of charging migrants. But they did so only after they were left with no other choice, as the Department of Homeland Security explained, Breitbart News reported.

“Today, several migrants threw projectiles at the agents in San Diego. Border Patrol agents deployed tear gas to dispel the group because of the risk to agents’ safety. Several agents were hit by the projectiles,” DHS said in a tweet.

Border Patrol officials said the same thing in interviews with some media outlets. The National Sentinel reported:

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.

In an interview with The Daily Caller, Scott said, “Several agents were actually struck by rocks,” adding that mostly male migrants were using women and children as shields.

“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,” he continued.

“They use women and children regularly,” National Border Patrol Council President Brandon Judd told The Daily Caller in a separate interview.
