Major International Bridge on Border Shut Down After ‘Waves’ of Illegal Migrants Attempt to Storm Across

The Pharr International Bridge had to be closed after waves of illegal immigrants tried to rush across it.

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.

Arizona Border Patrol Officer Stabbed Multiple Times, Shoots and Kills Criminal Alien

A Border Patrol officer patrolling the US-Mexico border shot and killed a man who stabbed him multiple times in Southern Arizona on Monday night.

CBP officials reported that the unnamed agent was patrolling near the transnational city of Nogales, Arizona, when he encountered a group of individuals he suspected to be aliens entering the country illegally. One man accompanying them group attacked the agent when he sought to apprehend the aliens, stabbing him multiple times.

The CBP agent went on to fatally shoot the alien, who may have been a smuggler moving a group of illegal migrants across the border. Deputies of the Santa Cruz Sheriff’s Office were called to provide backup, and the Border Patrol agent that was stabbed had to be airlifted to a Tucson hospital early on Tuesday morning. Fortunately, he was released from the hospital later the same day.

Cartel-affiliated criminal smugglers have increasingly sought to infiltrate the United States in Arizona, hoping to avoid a buffed border patrol presence in Texas and new wall construction in the most trafficked areas of the border.

Preliminary reports indicate that the Border Patrol agent may have been alone when he encountered the smuggler’s group of criminal aliens, a hazard that has resulted in violent attacks on Border Patrol agents by cartel-affiliated criminals before.

The FBI is reportedly investigating the incident. It’s unclear if the group of aliens encountered by the agent have been expelled under special coronavirus immigration regulations, transferred into the custody of immigration detention, or simply allowed to proceed into the country.
