Thousands of illegal aliens are swarming the Texas border this month in advance of the migrant caravan marching through Mexico, prompting Chief Patrol Agent Manuel Padilla, Jr., the Customs and Border Patrol Sector Chief of the Rio Grande Valley, to beg for help dealing with the onslaught of illegal aliens, gang members and drug cartel smugglers. Just on Saturday over 700 illegal aliens were caught, with over 12,000 caught in the past three weeks. In addition, safe houses have been busted and drug smugglers intercepted by the overstretched CBP in the Rio Grande Valley.
16,000 family units were reported caught in the last month in the RGV sector by CBP. All these illegals take manpower and resources to detain, process, house, clothe, feed, and give medical treatment.
Padilla sent out several tweets this weekend with the message, We need #personnel #technology #infrastructure, in conjunction with video reports by on scene Fox News Channel reporter Griff Jenkins. Another busy day with @GriffJenkins in #RGV South Texas. Over 12,700 illegal alien arrests in past 3 weeks. nearly 800 pounds of marijuana & almost 70 pounds of peyote just yesterday We need #personnel #technology #infrastructure #HonorFirst
Our #BorderPatrol Agents face challenges daily while focusing on our #BorderSecurity mission and our #HumanitarianEfforts #RGV South Texas is in need of #personnel #technology & #infrastructure for both mission sets #HonorFirst @GriffJenkins @FoxNews #DayInTheLife

We needed the wall in 1988, but George H.W. Bush had other ideas.
actually we needed it 40 years ago. God help us.
Current caravan estimates are around 10,000........supposedly from Honduras.
However, a South American group is expected to hook up with a group of approximately 40,000 Mexicans in the next few days
They’ll reach the U.S. border near election week with well over 50k invaders total.
That’s a lot of Democrat votes ..... factoring in that they’ll all vote 4-5 times each.
How about 25,000 armed, private citizens? The Federal Government doesn’t seem to want to do anything.
I reported earlier seeing half of Costco shoppers mid day Saturday being Spanish only speaking new immigrnats/illegal aliens. One in five could speak English and they were all very focused on tight budgets and buying new sundries for new living quarters.
IMHO, the movement is 100k people min over a month and the ones in the press are only a diversion. They are already here and I’m not talking about illegal immigrants over the last year. These are all new with an agenda.
What caliber f ammo do they need to turn back the invasion?
Why do people perpetuate using the 11 million number thats been recited for 30 years?
If there were to seriously happen, 50,000 people massing to mob the border, I doubt any voter will object to Trump closing the border, deploying troops to secure it, and demanding Congress immediately authorize funds for the wall. I wonder if Democrats realize what they’ve unleashed?
we need back up for the men in blue, need the military there now
Yes, at least 30-60 million, probably more. Heck, you cannot go anywhere without being overwhelmed with Mexicans and others speaking their version of Spanish. I think the government recently recognized that the 11 million count had run its course and people have been recently referring to a report saying 22 million. Still too low an estimate.
“We need the wall now.”
And fully automatic weapons.
There are 22 million in CA. alone probably more!!!
re: “.supposedly from Honduras.”
THAT would be the “flag” they are waving ...
I agree the militarys main purpose is to protect us from enemies foreign and domestic!!! Get them to the border NOW!!! This has gone on long enough these BASTARDS are testing Trump!!!
I wonder how many homeless encampments and street bums are comprised of illegal alien invaders. Beggars everywhere, and low-lifes crapping on the streets and camping out on cardboard have to be the result of the alien hordes invading our country. Build the wall, kick out the illegals, and I think we’ll be able to solve the homeless problem.
Fox news reported today that a new study puts the number at 25M min, but more likely closer to 40 or 50M. Study was done by some college in the NE. Sorry that’s all I can remember.
Yes, and I bet deporting them would solve mt of their water crisis
