A large port of entry in the Rio Grande Valley in Texas was shut down on Friday after approximately 50 illegal aliens rushed across the border and assaulted border patrol agents.
The invaders rushed the Pharr International Bridge in Texas just east of McAllen at 4 AM and a showdown ensued.
“A group of 47 undocumented individuals attempted to illegally enter the United States in three waves,” CBP said in a statement.
“Ignoring commands to stop, the group suddenly rushed the temporary barricades, bent metal poles and disabled the concertina wire affixed to the barrier.”
Several Border Patrol Agents were assaulted and were forced to deploy tear gas and pepper balls in order to stop the invaders.
Nice to know we have “concertina wire” holding back violent illegal aliens rather than a real border wall.
The Mexican drug cartels control this entire area and Congress sits back and does nothing to stop them.
US authorities arrested 16 of the illegal aliens and the Mexican authorities took the remaining invaders into custody.
