Summary

The rock throwers were located south of the fence, in an elevated position both above the border fence area and the incursion attempt.The statement said the “countermeasures” were directed only at those attacking the agents and were deployed in a manner that would not threaten other migrants in the area.The Associated Press reported injuries in the crowd, but CPB denied that claim.“No agents witnessed any of the migrants at the fence line, including children, experiencing effects of the chemical agents, which were targeted at the rock throwers further away,” the statement said.The statement said agents successfully turned back the rock throwers and that 25 arrests were made during the unrest.“Under CBP use of force policy, this incident will be reviewed by CBP’s Office of Professional Responsibility,” the statement concluded.As Breitbart News reported in November, under the Obama administration, U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) law enforcement officials, including Border Patrol agents, utilized tear gas against migrants at or near the border at least 80 times between FY2012 and early FY2017.Follow Penny Starr on Twitter
