Video: A stampede of illegal immigrants trying to force their way into the U.S.

A group of at least 1,000 people rammed through Mexican authorities in an attempt to cross the Paso del Norte bridge in El Paso, Texas.

At least 1,000 illegal immigrants attempted to enter the U.S. using force this Sunday by stampeding through the barriers and police lines on the Paso del Norte International Bridge, located on the border between El Paso (Texas) and the Mexican city of Juarez.

According to AFP, the illegals, the majority of whom were Venezuelans, gathered at noon on the bridge and claimed to have heard the rumor that they would be allowed to enter the U.S. freely due to the celebration of a supposed "Migrants' Day."

Republicans on the House Judiciary Committee weighed in on Twitter about the event: "The border is secure. -Democrats", referring to the phrase used by Democrats to justify the immigration chaos at the southern border and the limited measures put in place by the Biden Administration to curb it.

In a series of videos posted on social networks, the migrants - including mothers with children - are seen exerting a forward pressure, then running, and later passing a checkpoint being safeguarded by Mexican authorities. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) agents deployed wire barricades and barricades along the bridge to block the crossing.

CBP agents indicated that the large group approached the U.S. - Mexico border dividing line "posing a threat to make a mass entry." Physical barriers were used to restrict entry to the bridge and officials did not authorize the immigrants to enter, according to BorderReport.

The illegals stayed a few more hours on the bridge protesting against the immigration policies that prevent them from crossing and applying for asylum in the U.S. and then began to return to the Mexican side of the border.
