Rodney Scott, CNN, Barack Obama discussed on Hammer and Nigel

Automatic TRANSCRIPT

Horrified. I am. But don't, you know, don't get mad at Trump? Your your anger is misguided here, especially because Barack Obama did the same thing under his administration in twenty thirteen almost to the exact day. Honestly, if you want to sit back and think about it and what parent puts their child in that position. That's the thing that floors me. So much going on here today. Rodney Scott, he's the chief border patrol agent for the San Diego sector where a lot of the action took place over the weekend. He appeared on CNN this morning to discuss the exchange, and it was interesting to hear the contrast between what CNN reports and what somebody who was working frontlines at the border actually had to say. So our one of our primary mission is to make sure that we keep the border safe insecure. I kind of challenge that this was a peaceful protest or the majority of these people were claiming Silom we making about forty two arrests only eight of those were females and there were only a few children involved. The vast majority of the people were dealing with their adult males similar to what we saw the first wave of the caravan of came up about a week or so ago, the group immediately started throwing rocks and debris at our agents. Taunting the agents at once our agents were assaulted, and the numbers started growing, we had you know, two or three agents at a time initially facing hundreds of people at a time. They deployed tear gas to protect themselves and to protect the border now. Wait a minute that didn't sound like peaceful children and innocent women begging for mercy to me that sounded like a bunch of dudes throwing rocks and trying to storm into the country. Do you hear his? I mean, what he said there at the beginning, the CNN presenter or tried to present it as such these were civil marches, these peaceful protests. No, no, they weren't. And he goes I challenge your search in that way. Because it wasn't. I would almost come back with the line. But what would I know? I was there. The only thing missing out of that little exchange with CNN. Let's hear a little bit more from Rodney Scott again, he's the chief border patrol agent. He was front and center when the caravan made its way to the border near San Diego, you mentioned something earlier. Forty two arrests were made. Let's hear ran Rodney Scott talk about that forty to cross the border and were arrested to be completely Frank. There were numerous people that actually made it across the border. We're in the process of building the new border wall here, but we don't have it completed there were some sections that had the dilapidated border wall that was made out of scrap metal the military gave us the the group breached. A couple sections of that actually tore down one small section. Started to rush across and that's another time. Then they started assaulting our agents. We're able.
