Amnesty Gone Wild

Border activity got a little wild yesterday when some caravaners decided to rush the border and just bust into the U.S. AP describes in a horribly biased “news” article:

Mexico pledged to shore up security near its border with the United States and local authorities said that 39 migrants were arrested after a peaceful march devolved into chaos when U.S. agents fired tear gas into Mexico to stop some migrants who tried to breach the border.

To AP, 500 = “some” migrants but, you know, just “some.” Border patrol agents fired tear gas into the rogue crowds of lawless troublemakers.

Some of the migrants, part of the caravan that traveled to the border from Central America, threw “projectiles” at border agents as they approached the fence, officials said. Video appeared to show rocks being thrown.

US Customs and Border Patrol later tweeted that several agents were struck and tear gas was used “to dispel the group because of the risk to agents’ safety.”

DHS Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen “will not tolerate this type of lawlessness and will not hesitate to shut down ports of entry for security and public safety reasons.”

“We will also seek to prosecute to the fullest extent of the law anyone who destroys federal property, endangers our frontline operators, or violates our nation’s sovereignty,” she added.

Mexico says it will deport the 500+ invaders who tried to breach the U.S.-Mexico border. Good. Try breaching a border in another country and see what happens to you. After you land in de Gaulle or Heathrow airports,  just run right past customs and see if they let you into their country once they catch you and lay you flat.

We should shut down all the border points of entry until Mexico can get these folks under control. Take a look at the video below to get some idea of what happened. Remember, the open borders media first told us there was no caravan, then we heard Trump made it up as election fodder, and now we have video of a mob of hooligans trying to breach our border.
