Migrants Breach Border, Attack Texas National Guard Members, So Of Course Feds Are Processing Them for Potential U.S. Entry

On Thursday, a large group of migrants from countries like Venezuela and Africa breached concertina wire barricades and attacked Texas National Guard members in El Paso, Texas.

The incident, which some have described as a “riot,” involved hundreds of individuals attempting to cross the U.S.-Mexico border illegally.

According to a U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CPB) spokesperson, the surge began around 11 a.m. local time near Midway Drive and Loop 375, between the Rio Grande and the border wall.

The clash prompted the deployment of additional personnel to regain control of the situation, which continues to be closely monitored with increased patrols in the area.

Videos capturing the chaotic scene quickly went viral, sparking strong reactions from officials and the public alike.

By 3 p.m. on Thursday, all migrants involved in the incident had been moved from the site and taken into custody by U.S. Border Patrol agents.

They were then transported to a central processing station, where they will be processed under Title 8 immigration law, with priority given to family units and children.
