Celebrities piled on President Donald Trump after hundreds of migrants, including children, were tear-gassed by U.S. Customs and Border Protection agents at the San Ysidro border crossing Sunday.
Agents used the weapon on a group attempting to break through a fence. The fumes were carried by the wind to other migrants, some of whom were hundreds of feet away, who were not trying to enter the U.S.
Bajan pop star Rihanna used Instagram to describe the incident as “terrorism.”

NEW: TRUMP TEAR GAS FOR TODDLERS!!! "1st of all, the tear gas is a very minor form of the tear gas itself- It's very safe. The ones that were suffering, to a certain extent, were the ones putting it out there. But it's very safe!"- DJT #SafelyAvailableAtABorderNearYOU pic.twitter.com/OuQsGJIoR3

Don’t know how you get lower than tear gassing babies. But if anyone can, Trump will find a way. We must never get used to the horror that is this President.

These asylum seekers should be welcomed to our country and President Trump should be sent to prison. pic.twitter.com/sh5DXjX5xU

Make no mistake: Trump is testing whether he can get away with things like firing tear gas at young children. He is hoping these images harden his supporters to even worse acts to come. And he is banking on racism to get his way. We must oppose and condemn this. NOW.

People in trouble look to America for help and America responds with tear gas? If this is the new America we have to fix it and get our values back. We can start by removing @realDonaldTrump from our White House ASAP.
