Texas National Guard overpowered by migrants

Like Love Haha Wow Sad Angry

New videos on Thursday show a “riot” of illegal migrants attempting to enter the United States from Mexico at the El Paso border in Texas as a reporter said the Texas National Guard was “overrun by migrants.”

Crossings on the southwest land border in Texas totaled 68,260 in January, according to U.S. Customs and Border Protection data—a drop from the 149,806 migrants who entered in December, but still among the highest rates in the country, further encouraging state officials to try and take matters into their own hands.

Efforts by Republican Texas Governor Greg Abbott and other conservative officials to enact their own immigration laws, allowing for the arrest, detainment and removal of suspected illegal immigrants, continue to be litigated.

After the Supreme Court voted Tuesday to allow the law—Texas Senate Bill 4—to be enacted, the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals placed the legislation back on hold.

The scene was described as a “riot” by New York Post reporter Jennie Taer, who said that there were hundreds of migrants who had “decided they had enough” of Texas soldiers returning them to Mexico.

“This is the moment when TX National Guard became overrun by migrants rioting to get across the border here in El Paso today,” Taer wrote in a post on X, accompanied by a different angle of the scene from the U.S. side of the border. “We were there and saw it all happen. Absolute chaos here.”
