Border Agents Tear-Gas Migrants at U.S.-Mexico Border

HeadlineJan 02, 2019

U.S. border agents tear-gassed migrants at the U.S.-Mexico border early Tuesday. The attack occurred in the same area as the tear gassing in November, at the border between Tijuana and San Diego. The tear gas reportedly affected women and children, who were amid the group of targeted migrants. Meanwhile, President Trump addressed the deaths of two migrant children in U.S. custody Saturday. In a tweet, Trump blamed Democrats for the deaths, saying, “Any deaths of children or others at the Border are strictly the fault of the Democrats and their pathetic immigration policies that allow people to make the long trek thinking they can enter our country illegally. They can’t. If we had a Wall, they wouldn’t even try!”
