San Diego Border Patrol Chief: Asylum-Seekers Would Surrender, Not Throw Rocks

Mostly Men Arrested Following Confrontation

Border patrol agents came under heavy criticism following their use of tear gas on migrants trying to cross the U.S.-Mexican border near Tijuana this weekend.

Media outlets such as CNN and MSNBC painted a picture of defenseless women and children being heartlessly gassed, but the truth about what went down this weekend is a far different reality than the current liberal narrative.

Chief Border Patrol Agent for the San Diego Sector, Rodney Scott, dropped a truth bomb on CNN Monday, saying that border patrol officers in riot gear were pelted with rocks by a group that mostly consisted of young men. 42 crossed the border and were arrested.

"I kind of challenge that it was a peaceful protest, or that the majority of these people were claiming asylum," Rodney Scott told CNN.

"What I saw on the border yesterday was not people walking up to border patrol agents and asking to claim asylum," Scott said. "If they were truly asylum-seekers they would've just walked up with their hands up and surrendered, but that did not take place."
