Here’s What Happened to the Caravan Riders Who Tried to Storm the United States Border

By Townhall. Late Sunday evening, hundreds of illegal aliens attempted to rush the United States-Mexico border, something they talked about a few days ago. What the caravan riders didn’t expect, however, was the Border Patrol utilizing tear gas to keep them from successfully crossing into the United States.

Roughly 500 caravan riders rushed past a barricade created by Mexican officials. They then went to rush the border, at which point the Border Patrol tear gas to protect agents.

“After being prevented from entering the port of entry, some of these migrants attempted to breach legacy fence infrastructure along the border and sought to harm CBP personnel by throwing projectiles at them,” Secretary of Homeland Security Kirstjen Nielsen said in a statement. “DHS will not tolerate this type of lawlessness and will not hesitate to shut down ports of entry for security and public safety reasons. We will also seek to prosecute to the fullest extent of the law anyone who destroys federal property, endangers our front-line operators, or violates our nation’s sovereignty.”
