New data obtained by Fox News from the Department of Homeland Security shows border agents routinely used tear gas under President Obama; raising serious questions over the outrage from left-wing pundits and politicians in recent days.
According to Fox News, DHS records show US Customs and Border Protection agents used 2-chlorobenzylidene malononitrile -commonly referred to as ‘tear gas’- at least 126 times since 2010.
“During the Obama administration, tear gas was used on the border 26 times in 2012, 27 times in 2013, 15 times in 2014, eight times in 2015, and three times in 2016. That compares to 18 times in 2017 and 29 times in 2018 during the Trump administration,” writes Fox.
“This is horrendous. We must hold those responsible accountable. Children who approach our country looking for asylum should be welcomed with open arms, not with tear gas,” tweeted liberal Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand. “The Trump administration’s asylum policies diminish America’s promise and project weakness, not strength.”
