WATCH: Reverend Al Sharpton Shouted Down at Del Rio Border

DEL RIO, TX — The Reverend Al Sharpton came to Del Rio to denounce the treatment of Haitian asylum seekers who illegally crossed into Texas from Mexico near the Del Rio International Bridge. But before Sharpton could speak he was shouted down by at least two in the audience of news media reporters.

The video footage was taken on a camera phone by Joel Langton who is the publisher of the Del Rio online and print news publication called 830times.com.

As soon as Sharpton disembarked from his Suburban vehicle he was met with hostile questions. “Mr. Sharpton, why have you not been an advocate for the kids who are being trafficked at the border right now. All the kids that are being brought over have been drugged or sedated coming into the country,” one man describing himself as a first generation latino and a news source called “Border Report News.” Sharpton was asked why he was a racist, as well.

"Nobody wants you in Texas! Get out with your racism! This is a loving community. Get out of Texas!" screamed some in the media crowd. "Our border patrol agents are heroes," came the shouts. Today, the White House announced that the CBP horse patrols must dismount. 

As Sharpton attempted to make his case for why he was there to “inspect” the border on the west side of the Del Rio International Bridge, another reporter from Real American Voices also heckled Sharpton, drowning out Sharpton’s remarks.

Langton said he did not hear anything Sharpton had to say. He added that he hasn’t seen anything about what Sharpton said at the border online since. Sharpton stopped to speak with reporters after he and his entourage were given a brief tour of the encampment underneath the international bridge.

Near the end of the video, the Border Report News correspondent almost gets into a physical altercation with one of Sharpton’s body guards. Langton said after Sharpton departed the border, he hopped on a private jet and left Del Rio. Watch the video above.

Al Sharpton.... doesn't have a dog in this fight, yet arrives for one more publicity grab. He's just a has been rabble-rouser.

I’d argue the inverse, those white hecklers sound like hit dogs howling. Rev is just arguing for the Haitians to be treated the same as any other group seeking asylum. Rev has literal skin in the game. What your excuse?

Nobody cares what what he had to say.  We all know what drivel he was going to say anyway. Ol racebaiter Al.  Great that they got in his face, like Maxine Waters says to do(:

You guys griped and cried so hard about the guy who confronted Tucker Carlson in that bait shop a while back and now you are praising the people who do the same thing to the other side. You just can't help but prove yourselves hypocrites can you?

Next you will come up with a way to tell me that the two are not the same. Predictable.

Just what we need down at the border. A racist bigot "reverend" and an ever forgetful "President" who's own "followers" complain about the treatment down there...isn't being a leftist strange

"who's own "followers" complain about the treatment down there...isn't being a leftist strange"

It's really simple, and I know it is a concept republicans do not understand, but Democrats hold each other responsible for their actions, unlike republicans who attempt to cover everything up, or flat out dismiss anything negative that their fellow party members may do or be accused of.

The reporter closes with "I wish you could have heard what Al Sharpton had to say"

Anyone that knows Al Sharpton knows what he had to say.  From the size or the crowd, or lack of, not many people want to hear what he had to say.  If he was really concerned about what is going on down here on the border he would have been here many months ago!

Same with Abbott, if he was really concerned about the border he would have taken the measures he is taking now many months ago.

We definitely don't need Biden's son down there looking for "favor money"
