Migrants rush US-Mexico border

'You can eat it on nachos' says 'Fox & Friends' guest about pepper spraying migrants

Actions

WASHINGTON (CIRCA) — Thousands of migrants from Central America are approaching the Mexico-U.S. Border.

Over the weekend, it was reported that mothers and their children were stung by tear gas and pepper spray by the U.S patrol agents at the San Ysidro entry point in California.

"Fox & Friends" guest Ronald Colburn, founder of the Border Patrol Foundation, defended this action on the Fox News show and said the action was warranted.

“It’s natural,” Colburn said. “You could actually put it on your nachos, and eat it! So it’s a good way of deterring people without long-term harm.”

The border crossing was closed for several hours as a result. This action by the border patrol has been controversial. But President Trump has come out defending the border agents.

“They were being rushed by very tough people, and they used tear gas,” Trump said. “Here’s the bottom line: Nobody is coming into our country unless they come in legally.”
