Artifact dating can be tough, especially if there is some question of whether they are even artifacts. But there is little doubt that scientists are often trapped by there preconceived notions of reality and working theories.
There is no reason that I know of that there couldn't have been several distinct waves of human migration to the Americas, preceding Clovis Man by thousands of years. They should have been more thoughtful, though, and left us some bones. ;-)

The Clovis man..... did not attack prey so much as herd and drive them over deepends, ravines... and even they only date out to 12K y.ago.....in NM.
This is nearly as an exciting evolutionary 'discovery' as T. Rex, and what a movie this would make... 'how to die as nastily as a great white attack but on land with a 40-pack.'
