Border Agents Repel Waves of Violent Illegal Immigrants in Downtown El Paso with Pepper Spray Bullets

 

EL PASO – U.S. Customs and Border Protection Commissioner Chris Magnus issued the following statement Tuesday following an incursion near El Paso on Halloween October 31, 2022:

“I am monitoring reports surrounding events in El Paso in which several hundred migrants attempted to enter the United States without authorization along the Rio Grande River International Boundary, near downtown El Paso.

During this event, preliminary reports indicate that several individuals became combative and physically assaultive, resulting in the deployment of pepper ball munitions— a less-than-lethal system that agents are trained to use in order to protect themselves and others from attack.

In accordance with the need to ensure any use of force by CBP personnel complies with our policies, CBP’s Office of Professional Responsibility is reviewing this incident.”

Hope they aren’t treated in the same way the horseback agents were treated. We have to be kind and remember these are our guest!

Incident under investigation…just like when Biden claimed that CBP agents were “whipping” migrants from Haiti ;)

Impeachable offense! Biden swore an oath to “preserve, protect and defend the Constitution” which provides for a secure border ;)
