Migrants Rush International Bridge, Assault Border Patrol Officers

A group of 47 migrants violently rushed an international port of entry near McAllen, Texas, and assaulted officers in an attempt to illegally enter the country.

The violent incident took place on Friday shortly after 4 a.m. at the Pharr International Bridge when a group of approximately 47 undocumented migrants tried to rush the border, information released by U.S. Customs and Border Protection revealed. The bridge connects the Mexican border city of Reynosa with Pharr and McAllen. The local TV station KGBT first reported on the violent rush at the port of entry.

The migrants ignored the commands from CBP officers, ripped off the wire and barriers and then rushed towards the U.S. side of the border. CBP officers in tried to push back the men. However, the group began fighting and tried to rip the agents gear off as they attempted to rush the inspection area and enter the country.  Authorities detained several individuals. It remains unclear if any will be prosecuted for the violent incident.

The violent rush follows a series of similar but less incidents in various other border cities where migrants have threatened to or rushed the border. Similar incidents have taken place in Brownsville, McAllen, Reynosa, Eagle Pass, and El Paso.

    Sooooooo .....WHERE are these fantastic Riot Control Machines that the Army has tested ....... just one on each site ...........kinda looks like the "in charge" does NOT really want to control the border ............ I can sure as hell guarantee that when the INVADERS get to the doorsteps of MOST Citizen Americans , there will be a LOT of food for the buzzards ......... coyotes probably won't touch that meat though, they know contaminated meat.

    We are too lax when it comes to handling these situations. It is an invasion....so act like it Mr Trump!
    We apparently are not going to protect our borders. This is so pathetic.

    It would seem the requisite term is "A whiff of grape." See how many of the brainless idiots would charge that.
