Fox News correspondent Bill Melugin posted on Sept. 18 stunning footage shot from both sides of the U.S.-Mexico border. The video recorded more than 2,000 illegal aliens swarming the city of Eagle Pass in Texas in a matter of hours. "One of the largest mass illegal crossing we have ever seen took place in Eagle Pass this morning, with Border Patrol sources telling us over 2,200 people crossed there since midnight," Melugin captioned his tweet on X (formerly Twitter).
"It happened right next to the port of entry, as illegal immigrants continue to ignore [the] Biden [administration's] messaging of 'do not come,' and do not fear the promised 'consequences' for crossing illegally."
The X owner then put in his two cents with his reply to the Fox News correspondent. "Most people don't understand that this is not a case of people from Mexico entering the U.S., but anyone from Earth," replied Musk.
The National Border Patrol Council (NBPC), which represents U.S. Border Patrol agents, also weighed in on the illegal crossings. "The border is wide open for all who want to crash it. Nothing has changed. That's a fact," it posted on X. The NBPC also blasted the Biden administration for being "all propaganda" in regard to the ongoing invasion.
"Illegal crossings continue to surge in and around Eagle Pass, despite extensive measures taken by Texas authorities – including installing a floating buoy barrier in the Rio Grande," InfoWars noted. (Related: Texas to place FLOATING BARRIERS along Rio Grande River to block border crossers.)
Border Hawk earlier reported on Sept. 15 that hundreds of illegal aliens, hailing mostly from Venezuela, are arriving every day in the city of Piedras Negras in Mexico's Coahuila state. According to the outlet's Efrain Gonzalez, the illegals arrive by train to the city before crossing into Eagle Pass – located directly across Piedras Negras.
Even Eagle Pass itself has buckled from the strain of illegals entering the country, thanks to the Biden administration's open borders policy. This has led the city to declare a state of emergency.
Eagle Pass Mayor Rolando Salinas Jr. did just that, signing an emergency declaration on Sept. 19 set to last seven days unless renewed. The declaration allows the city to access more resources to help manage the influx of illegals at the border. "The city of Eagle Pass is committed to the safety and well-being of our local citizens," Salinas said in a press release announcing the state of emergency.
In a video posted on Sept. 20, Salinas narrated a visit to the Eagle Pass-Piedras Negras International Bridge and described what he saw. Based on the footage, the mayor was accompanied by the police chief, fire chief and other staff members who were "on top of the situation."
"As you can see, this is not normal to have thousands of people down in the international bridge," he said. "This presents a lot of problems potentially for our community."
According to Salinas, many of the illegals entering are single males as opposed to family units. He even pointed out that some of them have criminal records.
"We don't want these people just to be walking our streets," the mayor lamented. "A lot of them do have [criminal] records. And talking to Border Patrol, talking to the [Texas Department of Public Safety], there's no way of confirming who are these people."
"This already has taken a toll on the economy by affecting commercial traffic. But we're going to do everything possible to make sure we maintain the order [and] maintain peace in Eagle Pass."
