The past couple of days have been mayhem at the U.S. southern border. Hundreds of migrants attempted to rush the border yesterday. Beth wrote about the blitz at the U.S. southern border. Tear gas was deployed and liberals went apoplectic that authorities were—you know-enforcing the law. You cannot enter this country illegally, no matter how sad your sob story is. NBC News also found something else out, something that we knew for months. The vast majority of the caravan is not made up of women and children; it’s men. And they’re not looking for asylum (via NTK Network):
NBC News’ Gadi Schwartz reported that the majority of the migrant caravan that is headed to the United States southern border is men who are not seeking asylum, which flies in the face of the narrative that some in the media are attempting to paint that the caravan consists of mainly women and children.
“This is the inner sanctum of the shelter, so you’re going to see a lot of families here, a lot of women and children. But the truth is the majority of the people that are part of this caravan…are men,” Schwartz said while reporting live from a camp that members of the caravan set up in Tijuana, Mexico.
“From what we’ve seen, the majority are actually men, and some of these men have not articulated that need for asylum. Instead they have talked about going to the United States for a better life and to find work,” Schwartz reported.
Katie wrote about the chief of U.S. Border Patrol who went on CNN and said the exact same thing. Two words, folks: Bad hombres.
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. The situation is evolving and a statement is forthcoming.— CBP (@CBP) November 25, 2018
