Customs and Border Protection (CPB) Commissioner Kevin McAleenan testified at an oversight hearing on border security and immigration enforcement at the U.S.-Mexico border. He fielded questions on his agency’s use of pepper spray and tear gas against migrants trying to cross the border near Tijuana, Mexico, on November 25, 2018. Mr. McAleenan said migrants “were assaultive in their behavior” and the use of non-lethal chemical deterrents was within the agency’s protocols. He emphasized that women and children were “absolutely not” intentionally targeted with tear gas. Other topics addressed included counter-narcotics operations. close
