A major bridge connecting the United States and Mexico in Texas had to be closed Friday after waves of illegal migrants attempted to storm across.
The Pharr International Bridge, which crosses the Rio Grande and connects the American and Mexican cities of Pharr and Reynosa, is one of the most heavily trafficked border crossings between the two countries. The bridge has become a target of criminal smuggling activity, and Customs and Border Patrol Agents intercepted more than 400 pounds of meth at the border crossing in April.
The bridge was attacked by an aggressive group of illegal aliens on Friday. A press release from Customs and Border Patrol described the nature of the incident.
“At about 4 a.m. today[Friday], a group of 47 undocumented individuals attempted to illegally enter the United States in three waves via the Pharr International Bridge. Ignoring commands to stop, the group suddenly rushed the temporary barricades, bent metal poles and disabled the concertina wire affixed to the barrier.”
When several illegals got through the bridge’s protective fortifications, they attempted to assault Border Patrol officers and seize their protective gear. CBP officers ultimately deployed tear gas and pepperball to disperse the unruly and violent crowd, and Mexican law enforcement on the other side of the bridge are said to have taken the mob members who didn’t cross the border into custody.
16 individuals were detained by CBP, and two are set to face criminal charges for their involvement in the incident.
The ‘wave’ action undertaken by the migrants isn’t entirely unlike accounts of riotous refugees attacking border fortifications in Europe during the continent’s 2015 migration crisis. Middle Eastern migrants adopted a strategy of violently overwhelming border officials with the hopes of entering Croatia.
President Trump Preparing New Executive Order to Rescind DACA Amnesty After SCOTUS Decision
SCOTUS threw out the last one on procedural grounds.
White House sources have indicated that President Donald Trump is planning on signing a new executive order to terminate President Obama’s DACA amnesty program this week.
The Supreme Court had thrown out an earlier executive order to terminate the program in a court ruling last month, terminating the federal drive to enforce American immigration laws on supposed procedural inadequacies.
White House chief of staff Mark Meadows suggested that the President would soon sign a new executive order to terminate the amnesty program, while speaking on Fox and Friends on Monday morning. “Starting this week, you’ll see executive orders, you’ll see business that actually goes forward from the Oval Office when Congress doesn’t act.”
The President has spoken openly of his intention to terminate DACA a second time after the Supreme Court’s arbitrary decision. The court’s ruling had established that the President has complete authority to terminate the amnesty for a selected population of almost a million illegal immigrants, expanded by President Obama without congressional approval in 2014.

The court’s own ruling will likely prevent the judicial branch from overthrowing a second DACA termination executive order, having admitted that the federal government has every right to terminate the program that was implemented on a whim.
Liberal billionaire oligarchs such as George Soros and Charles Koch continue to fund an influence campaign to maintain the amnesty order, hoping to secure a status quo of open borders and weak immigration laws with the hopes of delivering a broad pool of affordable labor for large businesses and the American elite.
