America’s southern border has once again been rushed by a mob of illegal immigrants, this time in San Diego. Luckily, our Border Patrol agents were there to stop it.

‘Violent mob’ repelled in attempt to storm U.S. border in San Diego
A “violent mob” of illegal immigrants tried to ring in the new year by rushing the border in California and Border Patrol agents fired tear gas at them to repel the incursion, Homeland Security officials said Tuesday.
About 150 people were involved in the attempt to climb over burrow under a section of border fence in San Diego on New Year’s Eve night. After they were blocked one group grew more combative, firing rocks over the border to try to hit agents.
The Border Patrol fired tear gas, smoke and pepper spray rounds at the group of rock-throwers, said Customs and Border Protection.
The migrants said they were part of the caravan of people from Central America who arrived at the border over the last couple of months, escalating what had already been a strained border security regime.
“Once again we have had a violent mob of migrants attempt to enter the United States illegally by attacking our agents with projectiles,” said Katie Waldman, a Homeland Security spokeswoman. “The agents involved should be applauded for handling the situation with no reported injuries to the attackers.”
This is nothing more than a challenge to our border security and it’s not going to stop. It’s time to build the wall.
