FLASHBACK: When Democrats Said the Caravan Wasn't Dangerous

Over the weekend hundreds of illegal aliens stormed the U.S.-Mexico border in Tijuana. After getting violent with riot police in Mexico, a number of individuals broke through the fence and attacked Border Patrol agents with rocks. 

"Similar to what we saw with the first wave, the caravan that came up about a week or so ago, the group immediately started throwing rocks and debris at the agents. Taunting the agents. Once our agents were assaulted the numbers started growing. We had two or three agents at a time initially facing hundreds of people at a time. They deployed tear gas to protect themselves and to protect the border," San Diego Sector Border Patrol Chief Rodney Scott said during an interview with CNN Monday. "At least three agents were actually struck by rocks but they were in tactical gear so their helmets and their shields and bullet proof vests protected them from the rocks," he continued. "We did have a few vehicles that were damages, some windows and quite a few dents."

But it was just recently when prominent Democrats claimed the caravan was harmless and that the criminal element has been overblown.

Former President Barack Obama claimed on the campaign trail the caravan wasn't a threat at all. 

"Two weeks before this election, they're telling us the single most grave threat to America is a bunch of, like, poor, impoverished, broke, hungry refugees a thousand miles away. That's like, the thing that's really going to threaten Gary in Indiana," Obama said.

Two weeks after the election, thousands of illegal aliens are camped out in Tijuana and at least 8,000 more are on their way.

CNN's Jim Acosta claimed during a post-election press conference that the caravan wasn't an "invasion." He also argued illegal aliens wouldn't jump the border fence.

Two weeks later, residents of Mexican are calling the caravan...an invasion. 

You get the idea.
