My Eighty-eighth Open Letter To Senator Pat Toomey

I'll be dropping this letter to Senator Pat Toomey in the mail today:
Dear Senator Toomey:

It's me, again - the constituent who writes for the local Pittsburgh-based political blog, "2 Political Junkies."

In the past week border agents with the United States Customs and Border Protection agency fired tear gas into Mexico in order to push a group of migrants (a group which included women and children) back from the US Border. Donald Trump said it was a "very minor form of tear gas" and that it was "very safe."

Two questions this week: What are your feelings on the US Government tear gassing women and children? And given all of Trump's lies and misstatements can we actually believe him when he says that it's safe for children?

If you disagree with the policy of tear gassing women and children at the border, when will you be speaking up against it?

Thank you and I await your response.
And I will be posting whatever response I get from him or his office.

Only the Saintly professionals that should never be questioned in the FBI should use Tear Gas against Women and Children like they did at the Waco siege.

Or
TRUTH: Obama’s border patrol used tear gas a lot more than Trump

therightscoop link reposts this from Fox news:

"During the Obama administration, tear gas was used on the border 26 times in 2012, 27 times in 2013, 15 times in 2014, eight times in 2015, and three times in 2016. That compares to 18 times in 2017 and 29 times in 2018 during the Trump administration.

The circumstances of each incident — including the size and makeup of groups hit with tear gas, and the locations — are unclear from the data provided. Much of the outrage directed at the Trump administration stems from a photo appearing to show a mother and two children fleeing tear gas canisters on Sunday."

I heard a rumor that the mother and two children might be disguised MS-13 operatives, so there's that.

Just ignore the Waco siege as that is old news.
I heard a rumor they might be illegal aliens and entitled to full US Constitutional rights under Trump v. Hawaii and Trump v. DACA.
