Border Patrol Foundation President Ronald Colburn expressed his support for U.S. Border Patrol agents firing tear gas canisters at women and children who were in the vicinity of the U.S.-Mexico border.
Colburn defended using the chemical weapon on kids during an interview with “Fox & Friends”:
The type of deterrent being used is OC pepper spray. It’s literally water, pepper, with a small amount of alcohol for evaporation purposes.
It’s natural. You could actually put it on your nachos and eat it! So it’s a good way of deterring people without long-term harm.
