Hundreds of migrants cross the border in the overwhelmed border sector of Texas

Hundreds of migrants continue to cross the border in an overwhelmed Texas border area near Eagle Pass, Texas. At one crossing, only two Border Patrol agents were on hand to process more than 100 migrants.

A group of more than 100 migrants crossed the Rio Grande from Mexico to Texas. A Fox News crew captured video of the migrants walking to a Texas border fence gate.

Fox News’ Bill Melugin reported that there were only two Border Patrol agents when the group crossed. Texas National Guard soldiers deployed on Operation Lone Star stood ready to help. Melugin said the group identified themselves as Colombian, Cuban and Venezuelan citizens.

Melugin called the band, “One of the greatest singles bands I’ve ever seen on my Eagle Pass border trips.”

About an hour later, the Fox News reporter tweeted a video of a woman carrying a baby girl. She said smugglers in Mexico handed over the unknown toddler to her and ordered her to smuggle the little girl.

The two-year-old carried a note with instructions to contact her mother in Dallas, Texas. Melugin said the mother acted nonchalantly and expected the US government to bring her daughter to her.

It was one of many groups that crossed the border in the past 24 hours. On Wednesday evening, Melugin tweeted another video showing a group of more than 110 migrants crossing illegally. Another 150 people passed through the same area earlier in the day, he said.

Del Rio Sector Border Patrol agents apprehended nearly 41,000 migrants during the month of April, according to unofficial statistics obtained by Breitbart Texas. Official figures are expected to be released in the coming days.
