INVASION ALERT: Over 8K illegals crossed into Texas city with less than 30K population in just 4 days
By Zoey Sky // Sep 29, 2023

Eagle Pass is a city in Texas with a population of no more than 30,000. A flood of immigrants recently overwhelmed the city, prompting Mayor Rolando Salinas, Jr. to issue an emergency declaration lasting at least seven days.

The emergency declaration ended Tuesday, Sept. 26, and it's still not clear whether it has been renewed.

At a Sept. 19 press conference, Salinas estimated that 2,500 individuals crossed into Eagle Pass illegally on Sept. 17-18. The emergency declaration apparently didn't have an immediate effect as Maverick County Sheriff Tom Schmerber said another 2,700 migrants crossed at Eagle Pass on Sept. 19, with 3,000 more on Sept. 20.

In the declaration, Salinas said that Eagle Pass is committed to ensuring the safety and well-being of local citizens. He added that the emergency declaration grants Eagle Pass the ability to "request financial resources to provide the additional services caused by the influx of the undocumented immigrants."

Since the only shelter in Eagle Pass can't accommodate all of the asylum seekers, many illegal immigrants were seen out in the city streets.

The Customs and Border Protection (CBP) issued a statement to announce that it was temporarily stopping vehicle processing operations at a bridge and railway crossing at Eagle Pass. The CBP will be redirecting those resources to help apprehend individuals illegally crossing the border.

According to the statement, the CBP will "maximize consequences against those without a legal basis to remain in the United States."

In a post on X, Texas Governor Greg Abbott said he "officially declared an invasion at our border." He also blamed President Joe Biden's policies for the influx of asylum seekers. (Related: Biden’s federal border patrol agents sabotage Texas Gov. Abbott's efforts to keep illegal migrants out.)

Abbott added that he ordered more troops from the Texas National Guard, the Texas Department of Public Safety and local law enforcement to deal with illegal crossings and put up additional razor wire. He also said that they are building a border wall, along with razor wire and marine barriers.

In his post on X, Abbott shared a letter he had sent to Biden in November 2022, accusing him of inaction in the face of what was already a burgeoning border crisis. He claimed that the president's "inaction has led to catastrophic consequences."

Abbott also criticized Biden because, under his administration, America is suffering the highest volume of illegal immigration in the history of the country.

Republicans have also blamed Biden's messaging and policies for triggering a border crisis of historic proportions.

More military sources deployed to the border

Aside from Eagle Pass, the Department of Defense (DOD) is also increasing resources at the U.S.-Mexico border to control a surge in illegal border crossings in other areas.

In a call, Department of Homeland Security (DHS) officials told reporters that at least 800 new active-duty personnel were being sent to the border.

One DHS official added that there were over 8,000 apprehensions along the southern border on Monday. However, the official gave no explanation for what was causing the latest surge in immigrants.

According to law enforcement officials, Mexican drug and human trafficking cartels are deliberately directing throngs of illegal immigrants to overwhelm CBP operations at the U.S. border. This is allegedly being done to help the cartels carry out their illegal operations with less oversight.

Sources claim that drug cartels are sending thousands of migrants a day to hand themselves over to Border Patrol officers in different border towns in the country. Mexican cartels are doing this to continue their drug and human smuggling operations undisturbed in less populated areas, said law enforcement officials.

On Sept. 18, a group of about 2,200 people turned themselves over to officers in Eagle Pass, Texas. A video shows migrants lined up in blocks to be processed by the Border Patrol.

El Paso, which is almost 500 miles away in the westernmost tip of the state, has also been reporting migrant surges within recent weeks.

Mexican cartels flooding the border with asylum seekers

Sources from El Paso said on Sept. 21 alone, at least 1,700 migrants were encountered in 24 hours. Every day since, several groups of migrants have lined up along the border wall to surrender to officers and claim asylum in America.

According to one source, cartels are circulating false information that anyone wanting a CBP One appointment can turn themselves in and get asylum. CBP One is a mobile application that serves as a single portal to a variety of CBP services.

Local TV station KVIA reported that at least 500 people, mostly Venezuelan asylum seekers, headed to El Paso to cross into the country. A combination of single adults and families had crossed the border illegally but are hoping to stay in America while their asylum cases are heard. The process may take as long as several years.

The CBP warned that the border is not open to illegal migration.

Claudia Rodriquez, former El Paso City Councilmember, agreed that the move is being orchestrated through the cartels to overwhelm the system because the areas affected are usually border communities.

Border Patrol agents are also being assisted by cargo inspection agents who have been pulled from their regular duties to help deal with the waves of migrants, shared the CBP.

But this isn't the first time cartels have wreaked havoc on the city.

Back in March and again in April, cartels have already been spreading rumors of the border being open. This resulted in hundreds of migrants rushing to one of El Paso's international bridges.

A social media screenshot of the rumor said, "If you're at the border, go this morning. Don't miss this opportunity."

Other areas deluged by illegal immigrants

Other areas have also been overwhelmed by illegal immigrants.

For example, Southern California has also reported an influx of illegals in recent days. Republican El Cajon Mayor Bill Wells lamented that the situation is "a disaster."

In a post on X, Wells said all emergency rooms are at capacity in San Diego County. Homeless shelters are full and the county's resources are already stretched thin.

Like Abbott, Wells said the Biden Administration is to blame for the ongoing issue. He concluded that the public "must pay attention and vote" to address the problem.
