DC-WASHINGTON–Texas Democratic Rep. Henry Cuellar defended U.S. Customs and Border Protection’s use of tear gas against migrants attempting to rush the U.S. border near Tijuana and said he believes those who participated in the riot last Sunday only hurt the cause of the migrant caravan.
“I immediately got a video from the Mexican side and the American side, Border Patrol, and then some of my Mexican friends. Now I know there were some families there–kids, and I saw that,” Rep. Cuellar told The Daily Caller Friday. “As a parent, if I saw that, I probably wouldn’t have my kids there, number one. I saw people throwing rocks at Border Patrol.” more
