In response to the reports, Schatz initially tweeted: "Tear gas across the border against unarmed families is a new low." Approximately 45 minutes later, Schatz tweeted: "Who gave the order? Did it implement or contravene policy?" He then tweeted "WHO GAVE THE ORDER?" in all caps.
Schatz then asked: "Why tear gas? Is this consistent with the Conventions on Chemical Weapons?"
In an exchange with opinion writer Stephen Miller, Schatz admitted that "I went ahead and deleted the one about chemical weapons because I just don’t know enough about what happened."
LOL (caps required)
I dont think tear gas was used i think the media report is wrong. I was wondering where is the videos of people eyes burning and water being poured over them. Those videos dont exist which makes me wonder why the media is perpetuating a lie,
Here is a video showing them breaching the fence you can tell Border agents used a smoke grenade and was not tear gas.

The phrase was "legitimate asylum seekers." They are not legitimate because they already turned down asylum from Mexico.

The vast majority of these people coming to the United States that I have encountered are coming here to work.
Many of them have families that they have to send money back to.
