"And this is the world were a co production of the BBC World Service PRI and W G B h here in Boston. You might remember seeing a photo of a family from Honduras along the Mexican border and went viral. You heard about the mother and her two children here on the world. We have an update now the setting you'll recall was US, Mexico border near Tijuana in the background along barbed wire. Fence a crowd of migrants and smoke from tear gas canisters fired by US border patrol. In the chaos woman runs away from the tear gas clutching her two young girls. That's the moment that was captured by a Reuters photographer. The woman in the photo is Marie Meza. Volunteer lawyer Carolina was with Maria Andrew children at the US Mexico border earlier this week Kara. What's Marie amazes current situation where she no she has an attorney who is locating her children right now, but she is in the United States and was allowed to process then for her request for asylum. You were with Maria and her children and other migrants was Monday night going into Tuesday morning waiting for their asylum cases to be processed. What was that experience? Like, we arrived at the port of entry onto forty five with fifteen asylum seekers, and we did not leave until eight AM the next morning, and that was because hutchingson border patrol protection was not going to allow them to ask for asylum. We also to members of congress. Folks, we're advocating that these asylum seekers be allowed to request asylum. We were on US soil the entire time. So these were people that were technically already in the United States requesting asylum that Reuters photo of Maria enter children how much did that endanger her like all the attention are quite a bit. There was a rightwing extremist group that started targeting her in Tijuana. There was a woman on Facebook Paloma for Trump who would direct them to come to Tijuana and harass her family. It wasn't safe for her in Tijuana. So her and her children couldn't wait for their number to come up on that list and representatives Jimmy Gomez Nanette baragan, both in California. How did they expedite the process labor there with us at the border from the beginning? They were there talking to see DP having a narrow was great. They were really able to advocate and bring that kind of oversight that it's harder for certainly for asylum-seekers out for when they are simply turned away, which we did see happen with that family of five maybe the world's luckiest family. That happened to walk up to the port of entry while we were all standing there asked for asylum, and then came and stood with us. Well, we happen to be there. What what time of day was that it was dark, but it wasn't late. So let's family of five they had just came from Honduras. They simply happen to go to the border that exact moment asked for asylum, and we happen to be there. So it was very lucky day. They happened to be there when we were there. So I mean, you're a volunteer lawyer. You're there kind of as a witness. I mean, what was your interaction with the children both of that family and of Marie amazes family. Forty five it's winter. You know, sunsets pretty early. It got cold. There was no bathroom. So let's kids were asked to do something really hard. And they were getting restless, they didn't really know a lot about what's going on we chatted about birds in the sky, and that kind of stuff, but it was kind of extraordinary to have those kinds of conversations with a child in such intense circumstances. Because there's so much going on Maria ever think she would get rejected for her asylum claim, and how did she talk to her kids during this long, wait while all this is going on? He was very calm. She's been through a lot. She didn't get called back for processing until about nine or ten PM. And we didn't get no warning. She was going to be called. They literally walked out. They walked out with handcuffs or white classic behind. It was unclear if they're going to handcuff her what was going to happen. But you know, it was very peaceful. Very quiet and very fast are lots of hugging. Lots of tears because a lot of people are put a lot of effort into making sure that she stayed safe. And who were those handcuffs for up being for nobody? They use increasing intimidation techniques throughout the night after that they put a fence around us. They came out and videotaped us with their cellphones. They just kind of made it more and more uncomfortable. And plus, they got colder and colder. Yeah. But we all stayed up all night, and including the members of congress, you're about to leave California to return to your practice. Minnesota. What are you taking away just like emotionally from this whole experience? It's really difficult to you know, you read them in news about the asylum ban. But to actually see asylum-seekers not only turned away from asking for a silent in direct violation of our laws. But also to see how they treat people when they have six lawyers to members of congress media. They're still made to sit and sleep on the pavement making it three year old sleep on the pavement. It's interesting to see how CDP can act like this, even when there's so much late shown on it really makes me think about what's happening when there's not like being shown on new things. Volunteer lawyer Carolina in San Diego telling us the latest news about Maria Mesa and her two kids, the family that was photographed at the US Mexico border and the process of getting teargassed CARA. Thank you very much. Thank you. No new money for the border wall. That's the likely outcome of this week's last minute budget brawl between President Trump and congress. But wait, the Trump administration wants to reach across the border to help address the causes of migration. The State Department is now pledging more than ten billion dollars billion be to support a development plan by Mexican president Andres Manuel Lopez Oberdorfer, aka I'm Lou reporter, Emily green is with us from Mexico City a little bit over door announced his plan last week, Emily how has he described it? So he says it's going to be thirty billion dollars over the next five years that will be invested in southern Mexico end cyncial America, he calls it an initiative to welcome migrants into Mexico with visas, healthcare and employment, and that it will also help stem, the tide of migration from Central American countries, and hopefully stem, the tide of these kinds of massive, Mike. Great caravans that we have seen cross through Mexico over the last couple of months. Yes. Lopez Obrador calls his plan a Marshall plan. I it sounds like he sees really big things for this. Right. I think that he wants to be a leader in the region in terms of shaping the region and being a force for regional stability. But the devil really is in the details. And I'm just going to give you an example. For example. It seems that a large portion of that thirty billion dollars is going to go towards a project that he calls train Maya. And it's a tourist train that would go around the Yucatan peninsula and around the big Mayan ruins and that project is worth seven point four billion dollars over the next four years. The thing is this is a very controversial project in many environmentalists are opposed to it. So right off the bat. He says thirty billion dollars towards southern Mexico and Central America in seven point four billion of that is gone. To a controversial project that environmentalist oppose. Where's this thirty billion dollars estimated? Where's it gonna come from good question? I think we don't really know. I mean Anglo insists that the money is in the budget, and I talked to Dunkin would he's at of the Mexican center at the Wilson institute and asked Duncan what do you know, where is under Manuel Lopez over the world where is he can come up with the money? Then here's what he had to say. It is very difficult to see how he can.

I wish they could have gotten the operating room. So they could have had it today. Then I would I would be in a an a morphine, drip Hayes right now. But what are they going to put the cast on you? Do you get the cast right after the operation Friday? I think so. Yeah. I mean, that's traditionalist. So grace just working on a train to get the sling. Put back together, the slings are a lot more complicated than they. They seem in western movies. All right. You think we got it? Now is it gonna last? Okay. Thank you grace. I appreciate it. Nurse grace, eight four four or five hundred forty two forty two. So this is Brent Bozell wrote a column about this Bs from NBC news. Are you comfortable teargassing children? So here's the first thing we know the border patrol was using tear-gas at the border in the years. President Obama whenever illegal immigrants were brutally throwing rocks at our agents. I like that brutally you get the, you know, if if he's comfortable teargassing children, then you could say that those are brutal rocket attacks on the border patrol agents. Does anyone remember NBC asking bomb if he was comfortable teargassing children or did no one care about the emigrants back that NBC was particularly egregious and their coverage because they never mentioned the rock throwing they you know, what the word they use? I mentioned this earlier rushed they didn't invade the border. They didn't breach the border. They rushed at the border. Why can't NBC report the deadly projectiles were being thrown? And why does it always spread the silly notion that quote it began peacefully, unquote. There's nothing peaceful about a mob rushing the border throwing rocks. There's a term for this kind of reporting. It's called fake. Aac news, at least NBA ABC's. Matt gut men cited violent clashes, but he also said that migrants were quote throwing the gas canisters right back because if they only responded to an assault. And then they have the the the iconic photo you saw the iconic photo. Right. That look totally staged. This is the NBC account Maria Mesa her escape captured in this dramatic photo dramatic, I thought it was icon ick. Yeah. We caught up with her today when I say the that photo, I just want to cry. She says claiming she wasn't crossing the border illegally, but trying to reach it to apply for asylum. She's a rather large woman, by the way, the gangs that have been terrorizing her of not stopped her from getting to the buffet line down in Wata Mahler Honduras, or where he have shed a few pounds on that long arduous journey three thousand miles. I walked three thousand miles. I'd be down to about one hundred and seventy I dare say nothing if you tried to bike it. Then I'd be dead.

"Are saying about this university in Michigan that has given hockey pucks to all of the professors and said if a gunman comes into your classroom throw the hockey puck at him and then attack him. Yeah. And the techs are definitely coming in and starting with we're gonna we need an update for modern times now to the sane never bring a knife or a hockey pot. We also had someone else point out the obvious. The reason getting hit in the head by a hockey puck hurts it's launched by a hockey stick. The and throwing it someone else said these professors have been watching way too much a Jason Bourne. Yes, I would be afraid if a navy seal was armed with a hockey pocket a pen, not these professors and someone else said I thought these professors were the smartest of us all and they don't know how to defend themselves, but they also have to be trained to throw something. Someone else to say, you know, what throw tortillas Adam they're hungry. Maybe that will distract them. We've got someone say disuse Hornets spray that would at least blind them for a little bit. Yeah. Caesar's? Yes. I mean, there's all kinds of different options. If you didn't want the the lethal bullet versus bullet. Yeah. There would be a little bit smarter than a hockey puck. I like the the one that was saying in east to be launched by a hockey stick. Yeah. That's what makes sense all that velocity. You is what makes it her just being thrown with the hand probably not gonna have as much impact. Slapshot adds a lot of force to that thing flying through the air. All right pretend for a moment urine, United States immigration judge. And we want to know if you would grant asylum to that mother pictured in those photos says she had her two little diaper, clad, barefoot, girls, screaming and crying in anguish running away from the tear gas. Well, give me a little bit more information on her. So I can make ABC news found her in the camp of migrants the caravan camp. In tijuana. Her name is Maria Mesa. She's thirty nine years old. She is from Honduras. She is a single mother of nine children only. Cow single mother of nine those two girls in the photograph that we've all seen now. Our five year old twins in diapers. Yes. Okay. Five year old twins? Her kids are nine kids range from the five year old twins to a sixteen year old who's now a gang member. She brought. Five of the kids with her in the caravan. She has one kid that is in Louisiana. They don't explain which one or how he got there. And then the rest are back in Honduras. ABC does not tell us who's watching the other kids in Honduras still going to be underage because the oldest is sixteen three under sixteen year olds in Honduras somewhere. Now, here's the thing. You have to weigh KLBJ listener now immigration judge. She said she joined the caravan to escape gang violence and a lack of employment. She did have a job. She was making what amounts to thirty three dollars a week in US money. So she had a job. But she said that's not nearly enough to take care of nine kids. In addition to that, she says a gang recruited, her oldest son to join the gang. And they said look he has no choice. He's becoming a gang member. So he's lost. And she wants to make sure her other children. Do not also end up in a gang and she'd like to earn more than thirty three dollars a week. And she says it was a terrible shock to be in the middle of that Trump tear-gas on Sunday. She almost as fixated heard her two five year old twin daughters are still coughing and having trouble because of the Trump tear gas that was unleashed on the people seeking asylum. I first off I don't have a problem with the way that that was handled. Second off I've read accounts from people in that caravan that had said that the March started peacefully, and that they had placed the women and children in the front so use them as a way to get through. So she allowed herself and her kids to be used in that manner. Then you think about coming over here if she thinks I mean granted it's probably really hard to get by on thirty three dollars a week. But how she's going to be in shock when she finds out how much it's gonna cost to care for those nine kids when she's having to pay for someone to watch them if she plans to work, I've got a feeling that's probably not the route that she is planning to to go over here. She will not be working. Let's just cut to the chase. She if we give her asylum. She will be working she'll be at home with the kids. And so then you're going, okay. Then we've got to pay now for her and her eight kids, and she will probably file to get that that child credit. So that's a lot of tax money going to that one family. She says I want to give the best to my children. And that's why we made this journey with the caravan from Honduras. And she says unlike all the other people we thought it would be easy to get in. We gotta look at that. Who's giving them who's feeding them this misinformation that they can just walk up and say, I'm here, and all the sudden are granted everything that US citizens. Are granted that information needs to be stopped. I think President Trump tried to do the job doing not saying, hey, we're not gonna let you in. There is a process to do. So and it takes some time, and they were warned at several different stops as they were coming towards the border Mesa tells ABC news. They told me the US is a country of opportunities where we can work. That's why I came to see if I could support my children. No, you can't people here with two or three kids have a hard time paying for child care with good jobs. Let's go to Carmen in round rock. Welcome aboard. Good morning Carmen. How are you? Good morning. I'm fine. Yeah. I think that she needs to be deported. Do not grant her asylum. A five year old diapers unrealistic? Even unless they're emotionally challenged intellectually challenged them. Do we need more of that? Now, we have too many look at all the homeless in California. We have an address those people yet the homeless in Austin for goodness sake. Thousands of them if we have money to give we need to start giving it home until he clean this up. And then we can open up until money at the world. But until then I think that we need to take care of the people here who are dying who are hungry who are homeless. Should we give consideration? To her stated fear that her fourteen year old son will end up in a gang and Honduras, and therefore she's entitled to asylum here. She is fleeing persecution was wrong with Mexico. Now, she can stay in Mexico. She like, I wouldn't personally I would deport her to the very bottom of Mexico, and let her stay there. If he wants to go home either way. No. It's honest to goodness. I had four children I had as many as I could afford to care for if I had been living in a war torn area. I would not have had four children. Because what what are you thinking? And ABC news either did not ask or they're not reporting. Where is the husband or where are the men who fathered the nine kids that that is that something that should have been asked of her? Well, not only that I had I had lost my job during the Obama years, and I took a job as a medical assistant. And in that time, I got to meet many people who retired into the United States. Didn't that work here all their life just came here to retire? And we're now on Medicare and social security. It was disheartening because I was getting ten dollars an hour. So discouraged. Yes. I was very discouraged. That was trying to save my home and yet. From other countries and allowed to retire here on Medicare and social security when they never put anything in it. All right Carmen. Thanks so much. Well, that's frustration. And you talk about okay. Well, perhaps you mentioned not wanting the fourteen year old to go in and the thing the game. What if he already is you bring that are you allowing that in now his associations with any of gang members that they may have. I I just don't think you can do that. And that would be really difficult to ascertain. Just think about that. You're an asylum judge, and you're trying to figure out is the fourteen year old already affiliated with a gang. That would not be easy. You can't just pick up a phone. Call to Gucci Galp and say, hey, I want to know if this guy's involved, right? You're not gonna get a straight answer on that. And of course, they'll say no because they're seeking asylum. Let's go to Tammy and be caves she has a comment on the university in Michigan. It's Oakland university. They've now given their eight hundred professors hockey pucks, and they're training them on how to throw their hockey pucks at a gunman if he comes in the classroom to murder everyone. Hi, tammi. Welcome. How are you today? Oh, my favorite show. I'm glad to be talking to you today. You called in. Thank you. I don't have a degree in physics, but logical that if you get hit by hockey puck and someone's launched it with a hockey stick. That's probably why it hurts. Her unless you're on the baseball team. But that college you probably not likely to get the person you might as well be thrown a dry racer. Adam. Yes. Yes. If you're gonna throw something how about a baseball or something? Something a little bit bigger that where you have more of a probability of hitting them. There's more surface there that can come in contact with. Well, I've never seen Indiana Jones where a guy tried to hit him with a whip. And he pulled out a gun and. There you go. There's there's something for you to think about. Yeah. Never bring a whip to a gun fight. All right Tammy. You have a great day get in here and join us five one two eight three six zero five ninety good morning. It's Marc and Melinda on KLBJ..

"Of the so-called tough people is a subject of the now Connick photo from the border a young Honduran mother frantic she's clutching the arms over two daughters. One in diapers. The other barefoot as they flee. The smoking tear-gas grenade behind them mother's t shirt features characters from the Disney movie frozen dose of irony. Buzzfeed news, reporter, Delfa, Flora's tracked down that mother. Her name is Maria mazer she and her two daughters were standing near the border wall when border patrol agents fired several tear-gas canisters at the crowd. They were with. Here's what Meza told Flores about that moment merely. I feel sad. I was scared. I wanted to cry. That's when I grabbed my daughter's ran, I thought my kids were going to die with me. Because of the gasoline hail Adolfo Flores, thanks very much for being with us. Tell me where you found Maria measure, I found her inside the encampment at the outdoors. Stadium where the caravan has been staying at there's over five thousand one hundred people there, and I think that number has grown today. I was asking around showing moms and kids the photo, they knew her and the little girl she couldn't have been more than four said, she knew them, and she kind of led me to this fence were Maria had put down Las tart those being held up by the fence. And then some string why was it important for you to find her the photo that I seen everywhere I use it in one of my stories, and I knew that pupil will probably looking and wondering who she was when I like that. Everyone's just wants no more people were talking about they were, you know, judging her because a girl was barefoot, and I found out she wasn't barefoot ship. The fantails like I'm stuck in the mud running. Did she say if she was trying to get into the US with her two daughters when that tear gas canister came across from the US? She says she wasn't trying to get a cough that she was looking across the fence with a bunch of other people when the canisters fell next to them. It was not what she was expecting. What happened when they went on the March well as to the photo of Maria Mesa and her two girls that President Trump viewed the whole incident differently as you know, here he is yesterday talking about the use of tear-gas on the border. The tear gas is a very minor form of the tear gas itself. It's very safe the ones that were suffering through that were the people that were putting it out there. But it's very safe. But you really say why is parent running up into an area where the no the tear gas is forming, and it's going to be formed, and they're running up with a child, and in some cases, you know, they're not the parents. These are people they go grabbers they grab a child because they think they're going to have a certain. They're going to have a certain status by having a child, you know, you have certain advantages in terms of our crazy laws. Yeah. Well, grabber is certainly not the case of Maria as she tracked from Honduras with her five children. Did she say to you why she left under Saddam? She fled because one of her daughters are starting to get a sexually harassed by the local gangs in us. Nonetheless. If you're a young girl gangs in want them to be there. You know, the girlfriend with quotation marks. Yeah. And a lot of families struggle with that like what do you do with your daughter when they start to get that kind of attention. And then she also said she had a hard time getting a job and being able to support her fight kicks back home on her own. And when it comes to marinas future. I'd like us to hear her describing how she sees a situation right now. I have asked God to help us. So that the door will open, and they can let us inside. Or maybe they can live to stay here in wanna Andy false papers. So I can work because as I said, I am a single modern. We need to work to provide for my children Adolfo Flora's what what are Maria as children planning to do next. They don't know. And that is raise that I've heard from a lot of people or they're they're waiting to hear they'll say that. We're waiting to hear what other people say, I don't know when they'll figure out what the next steps are over if they'll be able to get the information they need. It's a waiting game. Buzzfeed news, reporter Adolfo Flora's in Tijuana Adolfo really important that you put a person with details to that picture, really. Appreciate your time. And thanks for speaking with us. Family teargassing seems part of the new reality at the US Mexico border. But when author Sonia nizara thinks about how to ease tensions on the border. She imagines a more. Humane approach it starts with more targeted US aid to the countries. The migrants are fleeing. I think first of all you need to have more US violence prevention programs that were piloted after the surge of unaccompanied immigrant children arriving at our border in two thousand fourteen congress recognize you gotta deal with what's pushing people out of these places because you know, it's one person told me if your house is on fire, you're gonna find a way to get out. And that's what people are doing. Yes. About those US funded programs like there were resources sent to Honduras to deal with violent Sarah what happened. So I went to the most violent neighborhood in what for four years in a row was the murder capital of the world San Pedro Sula. Hunter us that neighborhood several years ago had bodies littering the streets every morning, we went in there. And we funded outreach centers where kids can go to get away from the gangs after school, get mentors. Help getting jobs. You try to lessen the flow of new recruits into gangs, Sonia when you say we paid a we is who the United States. Okay. So State Department, right? We took a program that worked here in Los Angeles, where I live where you kids within nine risk factors of going into gangs. Put him into a year or family counseling, it reduces. Their odds by seventy seven percent of going into crime or abusing drugs or alcohol. Most importantly, we went after the killers in Honduras eighty percent of homicides get no investigation and Whitney. Mrs are very fearful to step forward. If you do the gang kills you. And they leave you in the middle of the street in this neighborhood with Sapele frog written on your chest in magic marker signaling that people who talk end up dead. And so we paid a nonprofit the association for more Justice society to go into these worst neighborhoods, investigate all homicides, convince witnesses over months to testify. I saw a woman testify under a black burqa. Like they do in mafia trials in Italy. They put her in a wooden closet with a one way mirror on wheels wielder into the courtroom and throw a voice disorder. She testified against two very bad gang members and put them away homicides reduced sixty two percent in two years with these measures in the worst neighborhood in the murder capital of the world, and it cut the number of children fleeing to the north by half, it makes fiscal sense. It's humane people would prefer to stay in their countries with everything they known. Love if they could safely. So you talk about compassion and Sonya, you also have some suggestions for overhauling immigration that you yourself described as tougher toward immigrants. What are those? Well, I think what really rankles many people in this country is that when you go Tim immigration court, and you ask for asylum, and you lose your case, you aren't deported. Largely you blend into the woodwork and become among the eleven million people, plus who are in this country unlawfully. They feel that migrants. Thumb their noses at our laws, and I agree with that. And I believe that if you give people real due process in courtrooms with a lawyer. And you're compassionate you release them during the months or years that they spend waiting for that court hearing to come up for them. I think if you lose your Silom claim, then you sit should send out ice agents to arrest and deport that person. I believe I've lived in a country Argentina during the dictatorship of the military in the nineteen seventies. We don't want to live in a country without laws, and I think most Democrats and Republicans wanna country that adheres to the rule of law deport someone who's been here. A couple of years don't deport people who have been here. Twenty thirty years who have four children who have roots here where are you going to separate that parent from their US born children, but I think you can have a very strict policy of deporting people who have been here. One or two years have have gotten a fair shot at asylum and have lost right now. How big the appetite on Capitol Hill for taking immigration reform on I think very little. I mean, I think that immigration throughout the decades has been used as a wedge issue to mobilize basis on either side. And I think that we can keep screaming at each other from opposite sides of the political divide or we can do something that actually works, which is funding more of these pilot programs that are cheaper are more humane in the home countries. And in the meantime, recognizing that we. Have more people fleeing violence around the world than any time since World War Two and that we have to take our fair share. And that it's relatively not a lot of people compared to what we saw twenty years ago. I think people have their hair on fire largely over the numbers that occurred twenty years ago, you know, during war two we turn back the ship. The Saint Louis with nine hundred Jews aboard and hundreds of those Jews were murdered in the holocaust. We didn't allow them to dock at our shores we turned away and Frank's family and the US said never again, we will never allow this to happen again. And we became the leaders in the modern day movement to protect refugees. And yet we are taking thirty thousand a year the lowest number in modern history and trying to block asylum seekers at our border. We are setting a terrible example for the world. I think most Americans are way more compassionate than that. Immigration. I know is not a theoretical issue for use on your your the child of immigrants. The only one in your family born in the US, and you have twice travelled the length of Mexico with Central American migrants, if we don't fix the current immigration system. What potentially are the consequences of that? I think the caravans will continue and the caravans will grow. There's increasing numbers that are coming from Central America. I think there's growing despair and places like Hundres which recently last year had a fraudulent election which unfortunately, the United States supported instead of saying do it over again. The president's son was just arrested in Miami last week on drug and weapons charges connected to the catchy rose a big nocco gang in Honduras. So I think people are losing any hope they are voting with their feet, and we need to turn that around in places like Honduras, or the caravans will continue Sonya nizara is the author of Enrico journey.

"maria mesa" Discussed on The Andrew Klavan Show

"This was an actual, you know, it happened a few days ago, and they're hundreds of miles away their hundreds and hundreds of that. That's not invasion who could ever have guessed. How could Jim look at me. I'm Jim Acosta have ever guessed that people hundreds of miles away moving in our direction would eventually reach our border. I mean, hundreds of miles away. That's like an eternity. They've just keep walking for forever. I mean, it was it was stupid on its face. Trump was entirely entirely in the right. And then the people charged the border. You can't just let them come in. And so the and they were throwing things at our border agents. As Trump said, they would Trump said, look, they did it in Mexico. What makes you think they're not going to do it? Here those pictures that Jim look at me. I'm Jim Acosta were that he was referring to those pictures pictures of them storming fences in Mexico. So Trump was absolutely right to say they were going to do that here as well. Why not why wouldn't they do the exact same thing? Totally in the right. And of course, now the networks play the gassing oats gassing of children. Oh, my the stuff on Twitter yesterday. Unbelievable, this inhuman beast this. And he is gassing children is gassing children. Here's the way the network played. It the images of the tear gas used at the US Mexico border seen across the country and the world thousands of migrants. From that caravan have now arrived into wanna some of them breaking through Mexican security US border patrol than firing tear gas at them this mother and her children among those caught indicate offs tonight. President Trump was asked about the tear gas. We met sixteen year old Henry covered those bandages and one of the things that he says is that. He's not going to stop. He wants to still get into the United States, and he's not going to quit now. Just because he was going to the glances forced to Thonis to close. The sandy seizure of port of entry one of the busiest on the planet for nearly seven hours thousands of people most there legally stranded at the border. Officers are trying to keep the peace after hundreds of mush the US Mexico border yesterday started as a peaceful March turned into chaos US, authorities fired tear gas at mostly adult males. But some of it women and children including Maria Mesa her escape captured in this dramatic photo. We caught up with her today. When I see that photo. I just want to cry. She says claiming that she wasn't crossing the border illegally, but trying to reach it to apply for asylum. So I told you that photo, right? It's going to win the Pulitzer. I told you it was a big big deal that picture it reminded me of the napalm girl. I don't know if you remember of seen the picture in one thousand nine sixty three in Vietnam the Southie. Aetna AMIS who are allies accidentally mistook a village for a force of Viet Cong, and they napalm them in this little girl came running naked out of the village screaming and that became an iconic picture, Richard Nixon at one point wondered was posed. I mean, people have been wondering about this picture was it pose it doesn't matter. It doesn't matter. You know, as as boss tweed when said about the cartoons that brought help bring down his administration people don't read, but they can look at the pictures, and that's what they're depending on here. And of course, you know. Not only not only are. Well, let let's start with tear-gas. Let's start with this. The Washington Times has reported that the same tear gas agent that the Trump administration is taking heat for deployment against a border mob. This weekend is actually used fairly frequently including more than once a month during the leader years of President Obama's administration, according to homeland security data US customs and border protection has used the what's called CS since two thousand ten and deployed twenty six times in fiscal twenty twelve and twenty seven times in two thousand thirteen the use dropped after that. But was still deployed three times in two thousand sixteen Mr. Obama's final full year in office UCS rose again and fiscal 2017, which was split between Obama and Trump. So it's something they do. So they don't have to kill people..
