It should be far from surprising that U.S. agents fired tear gas Sunday on hundreds of migrants — including toddlers — at a border crossing in Tijuana, Mexico. For almost two years, their boss the president has treated immigrants — both legal and illegal — as something less than worthy of humane treatment.

Most recently, he’s used them as political props to be demonized in an effort to win midterm elections in Congress. -- Charlotte Observer
