Border Agent Goes Public After Media Refuses to Report Caravan Using Kids as 'Human Shields'


After the establishment media slammed Border Patrol agents for defending themselves with tear gas during a confrontation Sunday at the U.S.-Mexico border, a Border Patrol agent representative is going pubic to let the American people know what is really happening.

On Monday, the establishment media peddled a dubious photograph of a woman and her children apparently running from tear gas.

Obviously, the media loved that image because it falsely depicts the migrants as mainly peaceful women and children, despite the fact that the caravan consists of mostly adult men.

In reality, the migrants weren’t peaceful. They were attacking Border Patrol agents, who were forced to use tear gas.

Hector Garza, vice president of the National Border Patrol Council, appeared on Fox News’ “The Ingraham Angle” to explain the situation to host Laura Ingraham.

“(Border Patrol agents) were actually under attack. They were assaulted,” Garza said.

This isn’t surprising information to anybody with an ounce of common sense, but the establishment media wants you to believe that tear gas was deployed on innocent women and children.

Do you agree with border patrol's use of tear gas?

“These migrants were throwing rocks, they were throwing glass bottles,” Garza continued. “Some of our agents were hit on their heads, their helmets, with these rocks. There were minor injuries.”

Similar reports of migrants throwing rocks to attack Mexican police came out last month.

It gets even worse. Garza also confirmed reports of migrants using women and children as shields on the front line.

“These migrants were using these children as human shields as they were launching rocks at our agents. So, they had no regard for human life,” he said. “They did not care about the other migrants. They did not care about the kids.”

Naturally, that wasn’t a focus of any mainstream media coverage of the event. Even a statement posted on Facebook by Department of Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen that there were children used as “human shields” was treated with evident skepticism by news outlets like The Washington Post and The Daily Beast or simply ignored by others.

It’s frankly an evil plan by the migrants. They used children as shields while they assaulted border patrol so the media would get a few photographs of children fleeing.

Apparently, the establishment media was happy to fall into their trap and try to pin wrongdoing on the Border Patrol.

However, all indications are that it was the migrants who were the abusing children by intentionally putting them in harm’s way. No children had to be at that confrontation unless they were brought there.

If the migrants went through the legal channels to move to the United States, there wouldn’t be a problem. Instead, they are violent and trying to illegally enter the country. At this point, most sympathy for the migrant caravan should be gone.

Contrary to the establishment media’s reporting, these aren’t peaceful migrants fleeing violence. As Garza’s interview with Ingraham made clear, the migrants are bringing violence with them and using their children as shields.
