Video: Sarah Sanders Silences Room After Reporter Asks if Trump Regrets Kids Being Tear-Gassed at Border

Chaos reigned at the border on Sunday after a group of 500 caravan migrants broke through a line of Mexican law enforcement officers, forced their way through a flimsy section of the border fence, and started pouring through to U.S. soil.

Women and children were pushed to the front of the mob as shields, Chief Border Patrol Agent Rodney Scott reported, as men threw rocks at U.S. Border Patrol officers. Vastly outnumbered, the officers launched tear gas at their attackers. The non-lethal gas spread through the crowd, sending people running in all directions.

A particular image of a woman running with two young kids caught the nation’s attention and was focused on by the mainstream media.

During a White House press conference on Tuesday, Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders was asked about what happened.“Over the weekend we saw some powerful images of children — as well as adults — who were affected by tear gas fired by U.S. officers along the U.S.-Mexico border,” a reporter began. “We heard the president talk about that yesterday, but one thing we did not hear from him was any regret that there were children caught up in this.”

“Does the White House regret that children were affected by tear gas?” he asked. “And is there an investigation underway to prevent this from happening again?”

Sanders replied, “Certainly the White House would never want children to be in harm’s way in any capacity whatsoever. However, that is why we are continuing to encourage people to follow the law and go to ports of entry.”

In other words, it’s not the U.S.’ fault that people are violently storming the border and bringing children into the fray.

But then Sanders pointed out, “Law enforcement officials have used appropriate, non-lethal force to protect themselves and illegal rush across the border. Let’s also not forget that this is not the first time that non-lethal force like this has been used. In fact, tear gas was used, on average, once a month during the Obama administration for very similar circumstances.”

“In fact, they were actually for far lesser circumstances because they didn’t have the same numbers and the mass rush that we’ve seen in this caravan take place,” she said. “Certainly, no one wants women or children or any individuals to have this happen, which is why we encourage them to actually follow the law and go to ports of entry.”

The mainstream media correspondents immediately shifted to other topics.

    That staged photo has already been proven to be fake. It has been photoshoped. Just as fake as the child in a cage when another photographer caught the staged child across a parking lot. The democrats are whoring out criminal illegal aliens. There are 100 women and children to every 1000 men.

    It is sad that women and children get subjected to tear gas. However, they’re being used as human shields by those behind them so they can throw rocks and bottles from behind at those protecting our border. They’re cowards. Just like Hamas in Israel. They shoot rockets from next to schools, hospitals and from residential neighborhoods into Israel. That makes it more difficult for Israel to fire back in self-defense without collateral damage to civilians. Yes, tear gas is nasty but it’s better than being shot. Something like 80-85% of those in the caravan are young adult males and not very peaceful.

    One picture that is it one picture that apparently was photoshoped. They also said that they were not throwing rocks, yet video show they were. Some people believe what ever they are told, not what the actual facts are. They need to come in legally and it was said way before now that if they tried to come across the border illegally it would be an invasion which it is as they are holding the flags of their country and throwing rocks at the country they want to come to. This is an invasion, not amnesty.

    What actually happened is not relevant, nor ist he fact that obama allowed tea gas to be deployed with far less provocation. What matters is that the narrative must be advanced. Managing the “news” is tge major task of thr fake news. The sheeple must be kept misinformed.

    These stupid people are subjecting their children to this, so I’m not shedding any tears for any of them. In fact, the fact they brought their kids to the front of the line should be held up clearly as child abuse/neglect and they should be prosecuted and would be otherwise. There is so much deceit among the illegals, and the MSM is being played hook, line and sinker. But they’d do this anyway to attack Trump. By the way–they shouldn’t be reported as “projectiles” but rather as the large rocks that they are. Rocks that can kill or maim our officers.

    Mothers with children should be seeking a way home or stay in shelter. 90% of invaders are men so no guilt trip for me. Mexico can deport them or we will have to end up shooting them.

      the problem is that most of those children do not belong to the purported parents. Many, if not most have been “grabbed” along the way. Who knows to whom they belong. That in itself is far more outrageous than anything Trump has done. I think this stunt is not going well for the left and they are once again trying to trap Trump. I think they are hoping for a body count, which would again be women and children since they were put in front of the rock throwers. Trump said that if rocks were thrown we would respond. Further, the BP states that it was 1,000 people who stormed that gate, not 500.

    These people are deliberately putting innocent children in possible danger by using them as shields in bringing them to the front!! Shame on them!!!! In other countries, these babes might be shot and killed without any regard for their ages.

    Perhaps the children will get the message that INVADING OTHER COUNTRIES BY FORCE OF NUMBERS is a bad idea.

    So, let me see if I understand this correctly…these are all good people just seeking a better way of life…in other words, if someone breaks into your house & says they are just looking for a better life & if I just hire you to clean my house, all is good…
    For starters, if you break into my house, I’m not inspired to give you a job because you’ve proven to be so nice & trustworthy…I’m more linclined to give you a face full of hot lead…

    The Soros Stump Mainstream Media has a long record of a ussive lies about I. C. E., and Homeland Securiteis. Soros will use every crooked tool to make Ameri an’s look bad so this Soros puppet was just using Soros tactics as have AntiFA, and other Leftist Socialist groups.

    Only problem is they’re missing their number one class clown, Acosta. I wonder if CNN has put him in “time out” ? The media is in fact the enemy of the American people. Anytime they tell lies instead of the truth is a crime against the American people ! And the illustration of Sarah Sanders being a kindergarten teacher is accurate !

    Dumb as rocks. Just follow the rules or go fight your own country issues, Americas doesn’t need people who refuse to make a stand in their own country, instead the caravan brings trouble and major gang issues. These children are most likely the offspring of these men ready to attack our boarders. This wasn’t a bunch of people coming together as individuals, someone made these groups appear and funded their journey, someone thats devious and has lots of money to throw at this large of a group.

    These people are entering our country ILLEGALLY! What part of that word do people NOT UNDERSTAND? There is a right way and a wrong way to do things. People who try to enter our country ILLEGALLY deserve what they get! Has anyone seen what happened in Europe? Take heed – that could also be our country! Borders and means to enter LEGALLY are available. People need to use them – NOT STORM OUR BORDERS!

    This is an absolutely correct statement! “In other words, it’s not the U.S.’ fault that people are violently storming the border and bringing children into the fray.”
    It is NOT the fault of America (OUR country). There is a right way and a wrong way to enter this country! These people are choosing the wrong way – and if it means women with children, or men with young sons, or those who would do us harm – they deserve what they get if they do it the wrong way – PERIOD!
