Immigrants Rush Texas Port Of Entry In 'Waves', Attack CBP Officers

Nearly 50 immigrants attempted to violently force their way into the U.S. early Friday morning.

Pharr, TX – A mob of immigrants attacked Customs and Border Protection (CBP) officers while attempting to violently force their way into the U.S. early Friday morning.

The three-mile-long Pharr-Reynosa International Bridge is the seventh busiest port in the country, and crosses approximately 175,000 vehicles every month, according to the bridge website.

The attack occurred at approximately 4 a.m., when a group of 47 immigrants attempted to barge across the bridge in three separate waves, ignoring the CBP officers’ repeated commands to stop, CBP said in a press release, according to KGBT.

“The group suddenly rushed the temporary barricades, bent metal poles and disabled the concertina wire affixed to the barrier,” the agency said.

Several men in the mob shoved their way through the barriers, then began assaulting the officers who intercepted them.

The attackers also tried to gain control of the officers’ “protective devices,” KGBT reported.

The officers deployed pepper balls and tear gas to disperse the attackers, and ultimately apprehended 16 of the suspects.

Two of the men were charged with interference, and federal charges are expected to be filed against the other 14 suspects arrested by U.S. officials, FOX News reported.

Mexican officials removed the rest of the mob from the bridge, and it is unclear what charges they may face, if any.

Several of the officers were injured during the brawl but are expected to fully recover, the New York Post reported.

The Pharr-Reynosa International Bridge was temporarily closed due to the melee, but has since reopened, WGBT reported.

Similar incidents of illegal immigrants attempting to rush the U.S./Mexico border to enter the country illegally have occurred in El Paso, Eagle Pass, Reynosa, McAllen, and Brownsville, Breitbart News reported.

BUT what about the fact (?) that they are just trying to claim asylum and they are 100% GOOD people and they all have a spark of divinity and all that?????

I love when reporters say the Officers were not seriously injured and will fully recovered- Well If you were ever fighting for your life and injured- you never fully recover- it adds up over the years - and things are never the same- especially if you've never been in a real street brawl before or attacked where you had someone pulling on your sidearm - Fully recover? maybe not so much

So they're arrested and lodged...who pays for their room, board and defense expenses? Can they be TOT to Mexican authorities and keep the US out of it?

Although I have heard several times about adding thousands of additional troops to be sent to the border to assist .....so then if so, why cant enough troops be dispersed to cover such possibilities as this? I would imagine those who are in control of determining logistics should be able to anticipate such problems. No? Any thoughts?

A physical attack on a Border Patrol officer should be grounds for the use of deadly force.

The enemy at the gates. A motley group of migrants rushed the border crossing and savaged the CBP agents on duty. Absolutely hideous. To think that those men want to walk American streets. Thank goodness they were stopped. I can only imagine how many of those migrants are gang members, killers, rapists, con-artists and grifters just seeking new lands to set up shop, exploit, loot and plunder? I hope the injured officers make sure full recovery. More soldiers should be deployed to secure our borders from the worst of these migrants and lethal force should be used IF violent incidents continue.

Military can't touch the invaders by Law... All they do is spot groups of illegals and Report them. Congress has their hands tied

We need stop calling them immigrants, these people are illegal aliens or at the very least ILLEGAL immigrants. To call them immigrants is a insult to the millions that came here the right a legal way.

Beto O'Rourke, aka Robert Francis O'Rourke says that these illegal aliens are just like the ones who came through Ellis Island. WTF? More lies and re-writing of history. My four grandparents came through Ellis island, and I've toured there many times.

Can't use armed troops on American soil. They can only be used in support rolls. Why do you think they don't deploy Marines? Things like this would get ugly fast. That's why.

What's up with those metal (?) butterflies decorating the entry gate? I know about the migration of butterflies, but having them on an official building makes it look like a children's play area!

Just treat it like how all this talk about storming Area 51. DEADLY FORCE AUTHORIZED. If they don’t understand that, as soon as a they see their friends get smoked, I’m sure they will get the hint. Why should the safety of the border patrol officers be put in jeopardy, when if you spell out the rules, you can’t say they weren’t warned. Otherwise wait like normal people and get in the right way.
