"The head of the company that makes tear gas used on migrants at the Tijuana border is also a backer of Sen. Cory Booker (D-NJ) who donated money to Booker’s most recent campaign and served on the host committee for a Booker fundraiser, records show.

Warren Kanders is the head of Safariland, a defense supplies vendor that reportedly supplied at least some of the chemical agents used by Customs and Border Protection this weekend on migrants, including women and children. Safariland products were also linked to the police crackdown in Ferguson, Missouri, in 2014 and to serious injuries sustained by water-rights activists at Standing Rock in 2016.

More recently, TYT reported that Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) had purchased a Safariland product called the “TranZport Hood” that covers detainees’ mouths and part of their faces."
