Border agents use tear gas and pepper spray to stop almost 50 undocumented migrants from storming barricades at the Rio Grande bridge to make their way into the U.S.
“Several males in the group disregarded commands to stop and physically pushed through the barriers,” the official said. “When confronted by CBP officers, the combative individuals began assaulting the officers by punching, kicking, and attempting to grab the officers’ protective devices.”

U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) agents had to use tear gas and pepper spray early Saturday to stop nearly 50 “undocumented individuals” from illegally entering the U.S. after they stormed a port of entry along the U.S.-Mexico border in Texas, officials said.
The incident at the Pharr-Reynosa International Bridge took place at around 4 a.m. The bridge is closed between midnight at 6 a.m., but CBP has had to construct temporary barriers in the middle of the span due to the large influx of migrants using the bridge at night.
A CBP official told Fox News the group attempted to rush across the bridge in three waves.
“Ignoring commands to stop, the group suddenly rushed the temporary barricades, bent metal poles and disabled the concertina wire affixed to the barrier,” the official said.
CBP officers, Border Patrol agents, Pharr police and members of the Texas Department of Public Safety were called upon to prevent the group’s entry, according to the official. More
When someone breaks into your house, do you voluntarily give them free money, free education, free medical, etc.? So why do Democrats believe we should?
The most important part is “ALL MEN.” Again you will not see this in mainstream media because it does not fit their narrative.
When adult men from another country storm your border, its called an invasion. A nation that is unable to defend itself from foreign invaders can not survive. History has shown us this over and over again.Don't forget to Like Freedom Outpost on Facebook and Twitter, and follow our friends at RepublicanLegion.com.
