Border Patrol Chief Tells CNN How He Knows Migrants Are Not 'Asylum Seekers'

 Central American migrants -mostly honduran- taking part in a caravan to the US, are pictured on board a truck heading to Irapuato in the state of Guanajuato on November 11, 2018 after spending the night in Queretaro in central Mexico.

The chief border patrol agent in the San Diego sector gave CNN's "New Day" an unwelcome answer for immigration activists about the "asylum seekers" who had attempted to force their way across the border only to be repulsed by agents using tear gas. "If they were truly asylum seekers, they would have just walked up and surrendered," said Chief Patrol Agent Rodney Scott; instead, they were "chanting, waving the Honduran flag, and throwing rocks at the agents."

"Did you feel as if you had enough agents at the border to handle this situation? Were your people overwhelmed?" asked host John Berman.
