A group of about 50 “undocumented individuals” tried to storm a port of entry at the U.S. border with Mexico only to be pushed back by Customs and Border Patrol (CPB) agents using tear gas and pepper spray.
The attempted incursion occurred at the Pharr-Reynosa International Bridge about 4:00 a.m. on Saturday. Border Patrol agents say the illegals tried to rush across the bridge in 3 waves.
“Ignoring commands to stop, the group suddenly rushed the temporary barricades, bent metal poles and disabled the concertina wire affixed to the barrier,” the official said.
CBP officers, Border Patrol agents, Pharr police and members of the Texas Department of Public Safety were called upon to prevent the group’s entry, according to the official.
“Several males in the group disregarded commands to stop and physically pushed through the barriers,” the official said.
