Democrat Sen. Brian Schatz, D-Hawaii suggested in a Tweet on Sunday that the usage of tear gas against Central American migrants may have violated international agreements governing the use of chemical weapons

Schatz's Tweet was deleted shortly after he posted it admitting he doesn't know much about chemical weapons.

US troops were forced to shoot several rounds of the gas after the migrants stormed several points along the border near the San Ysidro border crossing connecting Tijuana, Mexico, and California

Neon Nettle reported that President Trump was forced to shut down the crossing point between the US and Mexico at the San Ysidro Port of Entry after hundreds of caravan migrants endeavored to storm the border forcibly.

Schatz responded to the reports by Tweeting:

"Tear gas across the border against unarmed families is a new low."

Around 45 minutes later, Schatz tweeted:

"Who gave the order? Did it implement or contravene policy?"

He then tweeted "WHO GAVE THE ORDER?" posted in all caps.

The tweeted was only live for a few minutes before Schatz deleted it.

He then backtracked with:

"Anyone uncomfortable with spraying tear gas on children is welcome to join the coalition of the moral and the sane. We can argue about other stuff when we’ve got our country back.

His one of his final Tweets he admitted he didn't have the authority to suggest what he did:

"I went ahead and deleted the one about chemical weapons because I just don’t know enough about what happened" before asking Miller: "Does this not strike you as excessive?"

Mexican officials endeavored to use crowd control on Sunday afternoon but were overcome when the large mobs of migrants rushed at authorities, breaching their defenses.

Massive crowds of mostly-male Central American migrants tried to cut a hole in the concertina wire gap on the Mexican side, before tearing down a fence and pouring through the gap while throwing rocks at US forces defending the invasion.
