A source within U.S. Customs and Border Protection says a group of nearly 1,000 frustrated migrants attempted to force their way into the United States at the Paso de Norte International Bridge in El Paso. The group of mostly single adult migrants forced their way past Mexican immigration authorities and attempted to breach the United States Port of Entry by force on Sunday afternoon.
The source, not authorized to speak to the media, told Breitbart Texas that CBP officers staffing the U.S. side of the bridge prevented the group from entering the city of El Paso. The large migrant group has been pushed back into Mexico and was somewhat dispersed at press time.
